I've had a number of counselors in the past through nonprofits, EAP, referrals and through various insurance providers. Nikeisha is definitely the most effective counselor I've had the pleasure of working with of all my years through counseling.

Using BetterHelp not only has experienced counselors, but it saves me time being able to call from anywhere instead of drive to a location. I'm given resources to help me, I can go at my own pace, I can message at anytime knowing that she will reply with support and more importantly I've seen changes in my life through the work that we do together. She is great at what she does and stays objective in the process which is great. I highly recommend BetterHelp to anyone that is looking for cost effective and expert counselors. Cheers!

Keisha is an amazing therapist! I have been so appreciative of her kind, insightful support and advice. I can tell she really cares about her clients and her profession. She often sends me helpful articles and references useful concepts from books she’s read. She makes sure customize her technique to match my needs. She’s helped me come up with a “algorithms” or processes for dealing with emotionally intense experiences, conflict, and anger management. She takes a non-judgmental approach which makes me feel safe and like I can trust her guidance and suggestions a to be unbiased. She also takes the time after our sessions to send me detailed write ups of our session so I can refer back to as needed. I can’t recommend Keisha enough, honestly! She’s helped me grow a lot and improve my personal relationships. We are a team!

Nikeisha (or, Keisha for short) has proved to be an outstanding, and understanding counselor. I have felt nothing but safe and secure in telling her what is bothering me and she has been nothing but helpful in assisting me in finding ways to work past these issues. She has provided great resources as well as offered expert advise. If you're looking for someone who is understanding, open minded, judgement free, and passionate bout her work I strongly recommend Nikeisha.

I’ve had three therapists and Nikeisha is by far the best one I’ve had. She really understands me and gives me hope that I’ll be able to get through all my issues and gives me various ways on how to cope.

Speaking with Nikeisha helped in my grieving process as I tried to make sense of things, reflect on loss and resilience, and use my recent loss as a catalyst for letting go of things and thoughts that constrain and "show up" in the present. I appreciate Nikeisha's expertise and ability to listen and provide insight and perspective. It has helped me tremendously.

From the very first contact I felt that Nikeisha really cared about the difficulties I was experiencing. She was totally supportive and non-judgmental so I felt I could tell her everything that was distressing me. She let me grieve and express my feelings so we could move on to possible solutions to alleviating the emotional pain I was feeling. With her help I was able to rapidly move forward to deal with my emotions and feel strong enough to help myself.

Nikeisha has helped me in so many ways. She really listens to what my concerns are and helps guide me to find a solution. She's offered me multiple different ways to help me gain my confidence. I really intend to continue working with her, I've made progress but I have more to go. I love that I can really trust her.
