Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Penny Herrera. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Penny is phenomenal and she is so supportive and committed to understanding the situation that I am going through and to working with me to understand how and why I think and behave in certain ways and to begin to take control of my emotions and channel them in more constructive ways to improve the way I communicate in my relationship with my spouse and my family. She is great at helping me see how I might have disordered thinking patterns that I developed from childhood that have carried on into adulthood that aren’t serving me as an adult and how to recognize those thoughts and handle them appropriately. She has been very helpful in pushing me to be more self aware of my own thoughts and feelings and understanding what is really driving them. Highly recommend her to anyone who struggles with anger and dealing with life as an adult who grew up in abusive, violent or otherwise dysfunctional families
