Written on Jan 20, 2022 after therapy with Piper for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, coaching, and compassion

I am extremely fortunate to have been matched to Piper through better help.
I was sure I would have to go through several therapists to find one that really fit me, but I am so thrilled, that i was matched to her the first time and she is a perfect fit!! Her voice is calm, and is very soothing, sensitive and understanding and has a level of compassion that makes talking with her effortless.
I would highly recommend her, and I cant wait to speak with her each week.
Thank you Better Help and thank you Piper

She has been so kind and supportive and helps me feel less alone. I've been to therapy before but I've never looked forward to sessions before. No judgment and valid advise, I truly appreciate her help!

She is an excellent listener who shows genuine care and concern for your well-being, asks insightful questions and encourages a healthy self-dialog to sort through struggles, and gently guides you through them. I highly recommend her!
