Ray is a great listener and uses active listening techniques as well. He responds within a reasonable time frame and reaches out if I haven't been in touch for a few days. He remembers important details about past conversations we've had. He has helped me when I didn't have anyone else I could talk to or trust.

I am glad I reached out to BetterHelp. My last experience with an in-person counselor was disappointing to say the least. So, I hesitated to get help. But after talking with Ray, I immediately felt calmer and felt safe in his care. He genuinely cares about his patients and is patient and supportive. Thank you BetterHelp and much thanks to Ray.

First time trying out e-therapy. Glad it was with Ray. I really appreciated how non-bias Ray was as a counselor. He really me to open up my eyes and see the positive side of my experiences. I’m grateful for his feedback and him being laid back.

Highly recommend Ray. He’s I was reluctant at first but he’s a great friend and person to talk to. Listened to all problems and helped me to overcome them as over bearing as they seemed. If you’re unsure about things he’s the person to talk to. Great guy! Won’t regret it.

He goes the extra mile to dig deeper into the issue and I am very grateful to have him helping me through this difficult time. I would recommend Ray to anyone and everyone!
