Paula is a God-send and I can’t say Thank-you enough for her guidance and listening ear. She has helped me navigate the toughest times in my life and continues to do so. She’s respectful, kind and truly plans for her sessions; with reflecting back on previous discussions and providing homework for me to work on or think about. I’m forever grateful.

This is my first time seeking therapy and it has been a great experience. Better help couldn’t have set me up with anyone better. My therapist always responds in a timely manner and gives well thought out advice.

I have only been visiting with Paula for a couple weeks, but she has been an answer to prayer. Not just from me but also from my friends and family who have been praying for me. She counsels not only as a therapist, but also as someone with experience in the Christian faith, as someone willing to be used by the Holy Spirit in her calling. She sends me the truth of Scripture with confidence and without condemnation. She is validating and encouraging. Her conversation is client centered and edifying, and the way she responds assures me than she really is listening and absorbing what I'm saying. She checks in on me, and I feel safe honestly telling her how my day and week are going, and she responds in a timely manner.

Paula is personable, easy to talk to, and has a warm and kind spirit. She brings helpful resources to each session that prompt discussion and help me throughout the week to work through and reflect on my issues. Betterhelp did a great job in matching me with the right therapist. I highly recommend.
