Written by A.N. on Jun 24, 2022 after therapy with Nathaniel for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

Originally, when I came to BetterHelp, I had been sort of adrift for years. Starting from the age of 15 until I was 21 years old, I was depressed and repressed, and while the depression eventually did subside, the horrible habits, low self esteem and self worth, intrusive thoughts, and out of control emotions did not.

Eventually, my mother recommended BetterHelp to me, but it took months for me to finally place the call, and it did take some bargaining, to be fully honest.

My first few sessions with Dr. Mitchell back in March of 2022 were sort of awkward and aimless, as I never did much like phone calls, but over time I was able to find direction. We connected in an intersectional way, sharing our concerns and feelings about belonging to minority groups as a basis to build off of.

With active and enthusiastic participation, learning from his stories used as examples of the points he was trying to illustrate, I was able to learn the tactics and tools I needed to recognize my poor mental and emotional habits and the behaviors they were creating, and then I learned to turn them around.

I'm not saying that I'm "cured", or that I won't face these issues in the future, but as a team, we worked to equip me with the tools that I needed to fight back against the things that were keeping me down. If you're motivated to improve, and to solve the problems that you face in your life, in your behaviors, and in your thoughts, then Dr. Mitchell will be able to help you to learn the skills you need to be who you are.

Dr Mitchell is by far the best therapist I have had on this platform. He is well experienced in aiding health care workers myself with PTSD, but also treats you more like a person than a diagnosis. He challenges you, he listens a lot rather than talk, his words are blunt but said with a tremendous amount of love. Dr Mitchell goes above and beyond what I expected of any BetterHelp therapist, it's often like talking to a friend.

Excellent listener and professional at all time.

I highly recommend Dr. Mitchell because of how understanding he is and how much he is helping me. For Example, if I have trouble on a specific question, he gives me examples to help me understand the question more.

Written by M.I. on Apr 18, 2022 after therapy with Nathaniel for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, and self esteem

Dr. Mitchell is different than any therapist I've seen in the past. Imagine a fitness trainer, but for your mental health. A mental fitness trainer if you must. Dr. Mitchell shows time and time again his dedication to helping his clients. He takes an active role in therapy to help you work through different issues. Dr. Mitchell even challenges me to continue to engage and take an active role in my progress. I came to Dr. Mitchell with complex issues, and he has been dedicated to working through them with me for many months. I'm appreciative of Dr. Mitchell, and look forward to continuing my progress with him as my guide.

Written by M.A. on Feb 22, 2022 after therapy with Nathaniel for 6 months on issues concerning relationship issues, grief, and coping with life changes

When I came to Dr Mitchell, I was broken. I was going through the dissolution of my 17 year relationship where the last 9 were not good. I felt it was my fault for not being an able to communicate like a wife should. Honestly I thought if I fixed me with therapy, then I could possibly convince him to stay. That was my goal in therapy with Dr. Mitchell. As my therapy sessions progressed, they got more intense and more came out. I also had unresolved feelings for my recently deceased father and a sexual trauma in my early years where I never received counseling. I'd developed unhealthy coping mechanisms such as avoidance and denial. I'd assume all the blame when something went wrong, regardless of participants. Dr. Mitchell helped me process all of those unresolved feelings. The dissolution of the relationship which I felt was tragedy became a blessing. I'd lost myself in that relationship. I'd changed me for him and I walked on egg shells in a relationship that should've brought me peace for 9 years. Dr Mitchell helped me through that journey to the point where we refocused our sessions on self actualization and awareness. Now I love me and it's not selfish to say that. I will never sacrifice my peace for another. I will retain my individuality regardless of my mate. I am worthy of being loved and treated well by a man who gives his time willingly. Dr. Mitchell is invested in his patients and their goals. He is the best and I am forever grateful!

Dr. Mitchell is so easy to talk to and open up about your problems. With him it’s a no judgment zone and he has helped me with a lot of issues I have had to deal with by myself.

Dr. Mitchell is one of the best therapist I have ever been to not only does he have a diverse background but he truly listens to you he truly empathize with you and he is not afraid to tell you the truth even sometimes the hard truth that you don’t wanna hear. But he delivers these things in such a way that you were not upset and that you know that he is there to support you 100%. And he always checks on you multiple times throughout the week he is sending valuable resources and he truly does care about his patients he is the best therapist I have ever worked with.

Dr. Mitchell is amazing. He continues to teach and educate me as to why I have trouble as much as what to do to help me.

Great listener!!! Some people just want to be heard and I was heard throughout our conversation. My feelings was validated and options offered for self care was given; which, I really need at this point in my life. I am looking forward to continue to grown under his guidance.

Written by K.H. on Dec 15, 2021 after therapy with Nathaniel for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, coping with life changes, career difficulties, and compassion fatigue

Dr. Mitchell is an awesome therapist, and he’s encouraging. He empathised with me, explained how core values are useful in life. After speaking with him, I feel better and more accepting of my situation. I have a clearer idea of what all I need to do to deal with depression and combat the symptoms with my core values. I learned a lot, and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Mitchell is such a professional and very understanding! He’s able to connect on a variety of levels and makes me feel like I have new ways to tackle whatever stresses or concerns the week brings. I would highly recommend Dr. Mitchell for his attentiveness and professionalism.

Written by J.O. on Nov 17, 2021 after therapy with Nathaniel for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

Dr. Mitchell is a very good therapist as he cuts out the fluff and gets to the meat of what is truly plaguing you. Sometimes him being straight to the point can be rough, but it is appreciated as it saves time and lets you understand what’s happening and why it’s happening faster. After offering his insight on your “issue”, he explains what it is, how it began, why it began, and offers valuable methods on how to fix it. He is personable in his methods as he truly wants to help you. He takes time to make sure you understand what’s going on in the sense that understanding is the first step to overcoming. He offers outside assignments after each session to solidify what he said during the sessions for further help. He also offers tips on how to further yourself outside of each session. In the short time that we have been paired, Dr. Mitchell has opened my mind up to many things about myself and has helped me significantly in my walk. A phenomenal therapist. 5/5

Written by M.A. on Oct 22, 2021 after therapy with Nathaniel for 1 month on issues concerning grief, and coping with life changes

So I’m new to the therapist thing, I was a little scared at first about letting someone especially someone I didn’t know into my life and personal life secrets, but when I tell you Dr. Mitchell is heaven sent, I was grieving over my mother and father death and I was weak as I don’t know what from the ups and downs of life but hilt me back up, he gave me confidence and after a couple weeks it showed in me that I was changing for the better.. I had a full plate of problems but Dr. Mitchell analyzes your situations/problems and he works it out to u so you can develop and grow. I advise anyone reading this to definitely chose him, you won’t be disappointed. The love I have for myself is back, the strength is back, the confidence is back and most importantly the love for a companion is too….

I have been talking with Dr. Mitchell for a few months now, and he is excellent! He’s very professional and values your time. He’s also very flexible to your needs regarding scheduling and the content of your session. He has a proactive attitude and provides literature for you to read and respond to. GREAT at his job!

Written by C.A. on Sep 03, 2021 after therapy with Nathaniel for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, self esteem, and anger management

Dr. Mitchell is not only knowledgeable, but kind and enthusiastic. Having had a number of negative experiences with therapists in the past, I was nervous about returning to counseling. Dr. Mitchell has helped me so much in the past few months, and my once pervasive fear of counseling is gone; I feel like I am talking to a friend each week. Dr. Mitchell's motivation is infectious, and his investment in my improvements, my difficulties, and understanding my perspective has been invaluable. I could not recommend him more highly.

He’s an amazing counselor and I would recommend him to anyone!! He’s very thorough in his observations and thoughts. I enjoy every session I have with him!

Written by A.D. on Aug 03, 2021 after therapy with Nathaniel for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

Dr. Mitchell is an excellent therapist who is passionate about his work, extremely knowledgeable, and consistently attentive with his clients. He helped me develop healthy coping skills during a very difficult time in my life and I could not recommend him highly enough. Never once did he display any lack of attentiveness, he always knew exactly where we had left off the week before. The homework assignments he gave out were always relevant and helpful. Several times when I had to cancel sessions due to scheduling conflicts he helped me reschedule the same week, even though he was under no obligation to do so. I really could not recommend him highly enough. If this platform had a rating system I'd give him five stars. I have benefited from my time with Dr. Mitchell in a way that I believe has impacted the trajectory of my life for the better and I really don't know what more you can ask for from a therapist.

Dr. Mitchell has an amazing way of helping me understand a lot of the self-help/care concepts we are working on. I like how we set goals and the sessions have a routine that we follow to start. It helps me be less anxious coming into our sessions.

Written by E.L. on Jul 16, 2021 after therapy with Nathaniel for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and grief

Dr. Mitchell is great. He has been a great help the last few weeks. I would refer him to my friends and family because he takes pride in being the best therapist he can be. Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to.

Written by S.E. on Jun 23, 2021 after therapy with Nathaniel for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, compassion fatigue, and adhd

My experience with Dr. Mitchell has been excellent towards my goal of breaking the cycle of depression. He was phenomenal at addressing my concern and what I wanted to work towards and gave me relative and relatable advice towards achieving my goal. He was able to help isolate my issues and put exercises into action in order to help restructure my way of thinking. Working with him, Dr. Mitchell improved my knowledge on how therapy really works and expanded my idea of CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) as well as REBT (rational emotive behavior therapy). I absolutely recommend Dr. Mitchell as a therapist if you suffer from depression and anxiety. He will work diligently to help increase your quality of life.
