These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Rebecca Koskiniemi. 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.
Rebecca is amazing. She checks in on me if I haven't sent a message in a few days even if I had been doing really well during our last interaction. I have always left our video sessions feeling energized and lighter than before. Rebecca is so encouraging, supportive, and validating. I am immensely grateful to have her guiding me through my healing journey.

Becky helps me navigate my grief and depression. It's very reassuring to have someone there especially during the pandemic. I've been recommending Better Help to my friends!

Rebecca has been great! I have been apart of better help for almost 6 months now and I have enjoyed every minute! Rebecca responds in a timely manner and always makes me feel heard. I love having this service. It takes the worry and wait out of therapy. When I need further help, I jump on, write my concerns or whatever I am struggling with at the time, and before I know it, I have a response from my counselor. Right away Rebecca recommended some worksheets and assignments to work on to help with the issues I was struggling with. I am very pleased!!

I was very apprehensive about seeking counseling. I fought my struggles internally for years and years. I knew early on that it would be more difficult to start therapy face to face. Usually betterhelp has given me the comfort to be more open than I ever thought I could be, and I've made so much progress on such little time! There are things that come up during the day that just need to be talked about in that moment, and holding onto them until the next appointment would be difficult. Having counseling available in real time has given me a flexibility that has really worked for me! Rebecca is AWESOME, and really gets me!
