After 10 years of trying therapy I gave up and a friend referred me to better help. I was matched with Pamela.. let me tell you what... I have never felt so comfortable with somebody and felt understood and valued. In just one session I felt really good about reaching out for help and get excited when waiting to hear back from her or for the next session. With better help you are able to be in the comfort of your own home which makes it super cozy and easy to open up. Grab some coffee or tea and enjoy the journey to healing ❤️
