These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Monica Shelton. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Monica is an amazingly empathetic, relatable therapist. She has helped me through some big challenges over the past few month. Her strategies have helped me find solutions for moving forward and staying positive. She has been a strong source of support and guidance. I'm so thankful I found Monica through BetterHelp.
Monica listens to me and gives me practical cognitive behavioral tips. I appreciate how Monica is accessible by messaging in-between my weekly video sessions.
Monica has been the absolute best help I’ve ever had. She listens and gives solid help and has gotten me through some really difficult times in my life. I would recommend her over and over!
Monica has listened to my concerns and we are handling my issues one at a time. She always offers helpful tips to help get through the day
Being able to comfortably speak with someone is an important factor in productive session. I truly feel as if Monica is listening and posing thoughtful questions. It feels great to be heard. Thank you!!
Monica is friendly and attentive and consistently checks in with me. I love her cognitive behavioral tips she gives every day and I connect really well with her. She is a wonderful therapist and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Monica helped me through the thick of ppd and embracing being a mom. She helped me through some really difficult times and she will always be a tremendous part of my story to becoming a mother. Thank you Monica for everything. You don't know how much you helped me, and my family.
Incredibly kind, empathetic and asks the right questions when it’s hard for me to explain what I am feeling. Wonderful!
Monica is an amazing therapist who I would recommend to anyone! She makes me feel comfortable even while taking about difficult topics and provides very insightful tips to help.
Monica has really helped me in our short period of time together. She’s helping me through a tough time from my childhood and really seems to care about getting me through the tough memories. I look forward to our weekly sessions together and she ensures that I am mentally handling the topics we are discussing, which I really appreciate.
I have been against getting a therapist for so many years. I keep my problems to myself and feel alot of people either don't understand or give you the same advice you here from everyone else that doesn't help or makes you feel like you're on a different page or level....
I gave this a shot with Monica, after moving across the country, and I feel the complete opposite with her. Which is a great feeling and makes it more comforting.
I am a busy person with horrible service too, but she also is very flexible and understanding with my schedule and connection issues.
I have been against getting help/ or a therapist for years and I'm so happy I was guided to Monica :)
Have only just started but this method of communicating with a therapist is ideal for my crazy work schedule. Its so nice to express my thoughts whenever I want (via email) rather than waiting once a week.
Monica is amazing and empathic, and understanding. She has helped me so much in a very small time at my probably most vulnerable stage in life. Thank you Monica for helping me and my girls mostly!
