Great app! Counseling at your fingertips

Written by J.A. on Aug 01, 2020 after counseling with Nicole for 3 months on issues concerning depression, and relationship issues

Nicole has been an incredible support through my life’s recent changes. She’s been respectful and nonjudgmental about everything I’ve brought to our meetings and makes me feel comfortable and encouraged each time we talk. I‘ve been so blessed to have this safe space and have already recommended BetterHelp to family members and friends.

Nicole is a caring and empathic individual with great listening skills. Combined with her knowledge and experience in counseling, she has been of great assistance with my personal growth and development.

Nicole is a pleasure to talk to. She makes you feel comfortable right away and does not ever judge you as a bad person, whatever you tell her. She is a very good listener, good at calling your BS but always in a nice way. She's extremely encouraging, supportive and always smiling and ready to laugh. Highly recommended! (for me it was to work on family relationships)

I have only had one session with Nicole but I think she is wonderful. She listens thoroughly and actively offers great suggestions and relief for problems. Nicole’s kind and caring approach is welcoming and calming and she makes one feel like they are in a safe environment to share thoughts and emotions. I highly recommend Nicole and enjoy working through my personal issues with her.

Nicole is amazingly supportive - I can’t imagine it’s easy to be in her position with all of covid going on but she’s been a great pillar of support and is actively trying to find ways to help me.

Written by S.T. on May 15, 2020 after counseling with Nicole for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I've had a couple of sessions so far and I think Nicole is great. She makes me feel comfortable to talk to her and she really tries to get to the bottom of my feelings. She so encouraging and it really helps me to open up. I'm sharing things with her I never talk about and it's amazing. I can't say enough about how in a short time I'm already feeling the benefits and I wish I'd had the confidence to do something like this sooner.

Nikki is the absolute best. She’s always incredibly encouraging and uplifting and even though the sessions are short, she always manages to make them meaningful and get something accomplished. I look forward to every session. Thanks for being awesome!

Nicole Sheppard is wonderful. She is kind and non-judgmental. I feel she truly cares.

Written by Y.A. on May 07, 2020 after counseling with Nicole for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Nicole is a great therapist, she is down to earth and very professional. She is funny and has been helping me a lot. During our sessions she gives tips and strategies and has offered many strategies to help with what I see a challenge. We can even laugh during our sessions yet she is good at guiding and asking great questions. I am looking forward to working with her more. She is caring and even checks in with myself. She is also great at giving a touch point or a resource after our sessions. We have only had a few sessions as of yet, but she has helped a lot.

Written by C.E. on May 05, 2020 after counseling with Nicole for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, and self esteem

Nicole has helped me immensely. She has helped me to view my issues and traumas in ways I never have and aided me in seeing which way was up. I have begun growing and moving forward instead of being stuck in the past and it’s given me a newer outlook on my life. I am beyond thankful for her and how she has helped me and I look forward to learning more about myself with her wonderful counsel.

Written by A.L. on May 03, 2020 after counseling with Nicole for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, coping with life changes, and adhd

I have never been to a counselor for individual counseling before and I was a little hesitant to start now. Nicole immediately put me at ease and I felt safe enough to share how I was truly feeling during this pandemic. You never realize how stress, fear and anxiety can impact everyday living when you have not really felt it before. Nicole 'hears' not only what you are saying, she actually 'listens' to what is not said. She suggested that I do different activities for self care and a gratitude journal which totally turned around the way I was thinking. Just that little 'switch' helped more then I realized it could.

Written by S.H. on May 03, 2020 after counseling with Nicole for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

I really like Nicole (Nikki). She really listens and provides positive feedback. She communicates back and is honest with me about my issues and concerns. I think she genuinely cares and wants to help. I would definitely recommend her!

Written by F.A. on Apr 29, 2020 after counseling with Nicole for 1 week on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

My experience with Nicole has been great so far. She's supportive, friendly, and is very quick to understand where I'm coming from and what I need to work on. She provides recommendations right away and her advice is practical. She creates a welcoming and judgement-free space which has really helped me open up quickly to her.
