When I first joined a BetterHelp, I didn't connect with counselors right away. I continued to search and I found Michelle who has been a perfect match for me. She has been a wonderful source for support and encouragement. She gives me activities and worksheets that I have learned a lot from. I'm very grateful to have her as part of my recovery team. I've noticed a significant improvement in my mental health since working with her.
Michelle is amazing. All the methods she suggested worked like a charm. She really gets to know and understand the situation. I couldn’t have been more lucky to get Michelle as my therapist.
Michelle truly listens to you with clear aim for things to be better. She does this thing where she'll rephrase what you said to her in her own words, to which you can agree or disagree with- it's refreshing if you have people that regularly talk over you without listening to what you have to say.
