Since I started working with Dr. Johnson, she has made me feel incredibly comfortable and that in turn has made it easy for me to talk through issues that I have found difficult to talk about in the past. I really appreciate how she validates my feelings but also challenges me to dig deeper. The resources she sends after our sessions are helpful for me to reflect on topics discussed, think about new ways to communicate or work through feelings/reactions/etc., and practice things I need to work on. Highly recommend Dr. Johnson and BetterHelp!
