Rachia has been the best thing that happened to me as I go through the journey of self-realization and self development. She has equipped me with tools that I've used time and again to manage difficult conversations, situations or challenging thoughts. I feel much more grounded and motivated to learn more about myself and about positive psychology. I like that she understands what I'm saying and maintains the perfect balance between asking hard questions and giving me support and encouragement.
Rachia has been extremely helpful in navigating life situations and bringing more joy and fulfillment to my life!
I was so clouded, confused, and weak when I first started, Rachia guided me through when even my family failed. I feel confident and strong now mentally, physically, and emotionally and now capable to take care of my new family :)
Rachia’s great, she really listens and gives great advice and support. I’m thankful to have met her.
Even with only a couple of sessions she’s helped me so much.
Rachia is a wonderful, caring person. She is a great listener and gives really great feedback. She's helped me to put things into perspective.
Rachia is extremely knowledgeable and has helped me a lot! I would recommend her to anyone.
Rachia has helped me feel like I'm truly capable of making changes to better my life. She's so kind and honestly has helped me change my mindset!
Rachia is very kind, respectful and understanding. I actually am feeling so much better than when I first reached out for help. I highly recommend her!
Rachia is very insightful and caring. Highly recommend.
Very knowledgeable and helpful. Great at responding to messages and seeking more information to help.
Rachia has been very personal and thought provoking and gave me tools to move forward on a new path in my relationship . I personally enjoyed writing my thoughts and having time to think about what I wanted to share with her.
Rachia has gone beyond expectations in making me feel supported. She has distinct approaches to exploring and resolving my issues. I am very pleased and grateful for her expertise.
I enjoyed emailing Rachia. She was kind and supportive through emails. She understood my disabilities. This is the first time I felt I was able to have someone understand my challenges. I would recommend Rachia to anyone.
I have actually already recommended BetterHelp to a friend who was looking into a therapist and someone professional to talk to.
Very kind and respectful :)
Speaking with Rachia has been an enormous help to me over the past 12 months. In that time the progress I've made in terms of my mental well being are tremendous.
Rachia has been a consistent touch point for me in a critical part of my life. She has demonstrated expertise by sharing resources and communicating effectively the supports she has for me.
Rachia is very professional and takes good care of my mental health.
Rachia has been awesome. She's given me a lot of really great information and checks in on me periodically which I think is awesome because sometimes it's easy to just ignore your emotions. But her friendly check in's let me know she wants to help. Plus, I'm the kind of person who doesn't really like actively looking for help, so it gives me an "in" to tell her about my day or whatnot.
Amazing! Listens and is very informative.
Rachia is excellent at what she does, very easy to talk with and is always very quick to reply! I'd highly recommend her to anyone in need of help.
Rachia is wonderful! Her responses are prompt, even on the weekends, and filled with helpful insight. I highly recommend her to anyone dealing with relationship or drug abuse issues.
She is awesome! She has really helped me understand how to manage my situation and what to do.
Rachia is very quick with responses, and seems invested in my needs.
Rachia was incredibly supportive, gentle, and thoughtful in her responses. She showed me that it was possible to take charge of my own happiness, and bring positivity and gratitude into my daily thinking. I have matured so much emotionally since I started receiving her counseling, and in a short period of time. Thank you Rachia!
I'm pleased to have someone to talk to. Her insights helped me see my issues on a different angle. She sometimes answered my messages late in the evening which made me more appreciative of her efforts. Thanks Rachia!
Rachia is amazing!!! Her patience and understanding has been a tremendous help! I have grown a lot since working with her. I recommend her to anyone who needs help!
Rachia is such a caring person, she listens and gives back such detailed and positive feed back. Some days when I feel alone or like nobody is there for me, I'll find a random email from her filled with positivity!
Thank you so much, Rachia!
A great help. I have a hard time making myself go see a therapist in person, but the ease of being able to send messages and do things on my own time is wonderful. Rachia has been a great help.
She really helped me with some great strategies to get through some issues I have. :) Would recommend.
Rachia has been a tremendous help to me while going through a difficult break up. Don't know where I would be without her support.
I tried different therapists, but with her I felt an immediate connection. She is there for me every time I need her, helping me feel stronger.
Fantastic information and clarity - exactly what I needed to get out of the negative spiral of self hate that I was in.
She's indeed professional and helpful. Her emails help me a lot and empower me.
Rachia's been a wonderful help to me and my family ðŸ‘
