Nicole is gifted. She is so clever to exactly know and understand what I'm trying to say without even trying so hard. She helps me to discover myself more in a smart way, which affects the way I'm thinking and how to look over things in a good different way. I never felt being judged by her, in contrary, she supports me and always checking in me, which I appreciate it. I'm so glad I joined BetterHelp and honored to have her as my counselor.
I feel quite fortunate to have found Nicole. Her empathy, experience, and wisdom has been nothing but a positive impact on my life and mental well being. I can't recommend her enough.
Nicole has been very supportive when ever I’ve needed to share things. When I stopped therapy for a while due to financial reasons, she sent me a message a while after to let me know that she was still available if I needed her. This was very comforting to know that someone was there for me to talk to.
I was Leary of participating in online counseling. It seemed a bit shady to me but due to time constraints, recently moving to a New State, no insurance etc. I made the choice to try.
Instead of automatically picking who was suggested to me I looked through the profiles of those available to me. In choosing Nicole I chose a great partner in this journey of navigating and changing some hard core patterns in my life.
She's a great sounding board and doesn't mind when I spew multiple (I mean multiple!) thoughts at her in one email. Her gift to me has been her ability to draw a practical starting point from those multiple thoughts that often overwhelm me on my own. She has 'heard' me in saying that my main purpose for coming back to therapy is to not pass these unhealthy learned traits on to my children. So with every response there is an inclusion of my children as well as validation and encouragement of what I'm feeling/doing.
Her response time always amazes me a bit as it's quicker than I would expect. Truly, I'm grateful for this match and more than pleasantly surprised with my experience thus far on Better Help.
The fact that she is not phased by my swearing is absolute icing on the cake.
Nicole is very smart and very well prepared, she has help me to put my mind, my emotions and my life in order. I'm very happy Im doing this.
Nicole is insightful and empathetic. She is also forthright and takes a practical, no-nonsense approach to tackling life's challenges.
Nicole Johnson is very caring, non judging, supportive. She checks on me when I don't write for a few days.
She has been great to work with.
I would highly recommend Nicole to be your guide with whatever conflict you’re experiencing. She makes you feel comfortable opening up about the problems you’re experiencing and will help you understand and find a solution. It’s important to know however that at the end of the day no councillor can help you if you’re not willing to help yourself. What’s important is to take the first steps, accepting you need help and seeking it. And she will get you through the rest.
I have been able to share things with Nicole I could not share with any other councilor or therapist - or anyone for that matter. I know Nicole will help me reach my goals and I look forward to our weekly sessions for insight and guidance. Finding Nicole has been a life saver. I like that she is calm, logical, and gives great feedback and that I never feel judged.
Nicole is an incredibly validating person to talk to. She always validates my concerns, but then helps me move towards a more productive way of thinking about them. I highly reccomend her!
I am very thankful to Nicole Johnson for reading each and every one of my words carefully and considering my situation from different perspectives. She has helped me tremendously put things into perspective and I look forward to improving my situation as time passes.
