Review #16732
Written by B.O. after counseling with Reegan Koppelman for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, lgbt, relationship, and self esteem

I think I was very lucky to find a counselor like Reegan the first time round. She is always understanding, never judgmental, and has provided some excellent insights into the issues that have brought me here. I find it very helpful to be able to journal whenever I like and to get advice on the particular things that have been wearing me down, as they occur; in this format, I can take the time I need to process everything before replying which allows for deeper exchanges, cutting closer to the heart of the matter than conventional, face-to-face therapy perhaps would.

Review #16719
Written by K.A. after counseling with Kelly Redmon for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and career

Kelly is great! She's such a sweet person with an amazing sense of humor. I came in with a lot of fear about the process, and she immediately put me at ease. She's very dedicated to her clients and really seems to take joy in helping. She also is always researching and learning new things, trying to broaden her own resources to put at my disposal.

Review #16713
Written by T.I. after counseling with Vanessa Bonaparte for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, sleeping, self esteem, and anger

I came to Vanessa deeply depressed, and after only a short while I feel better than I have in months. The best phrase to describe her is she is a firm grasp but with a soft touch. She will not butter cup you but she will make you feel at ease when talking with her. She will help you find the problem, find the solution, and gently guide you along the way. She takes time to learn who you truly are as a person and your family, and she will even give you insight on her personal story. She has been more of a friend with knowledge than a suit and tie with a degree. I hope anyone that reads this gives her a chance to enlighten their life just as she has done to mine.

Review #16727
Written by A.C. after counseling with Andrew Mercer for 2 weeks

I'm always the one that really doesn't evaluate people, but Andrew is a gentle, caring, bright good at heart gentleman who is carved with empathy and experience like a therapist should be. Thanks for being part of my journey!

Review #16725
Written by J.J. after counseling with Martha Padilla for 2 weeks stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Martha is good. She is kind in her responses. I love that she seems to understand exactly what I'm talking about and never goes off in another direction. She never leads the conversation. She allows you to talk and follows along at your pace. It's been a good first experience of online therapy.

Review #16723
Written by D.A. after counseling with Dr. Paul Wright for 2 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

I have been in sessions with Dr. Wright for about 2-3 weeks now and I have to say that he has done wonders. Being able to express my feelings in writing allows me to give him a full panorama of my circumstances. He has been direct and honest with me every step of the way and is providing me with the confidence I need so much. I would recommend him always.

Review #16721
Written by M.A. after counseling with Gloria Santos for 2 weeks relationship, and family

I've always been a little hesitant to reach out to a counselor, even though I knew it was something that I really needed. I was even more hesitant to go the online route. Ms. Santos has completely erased any concern or hesitancy that I night have had. She's been absolutely wonderful and absolutely helpful and available. I only wish that I would have started sooner.

Review #16714
Written by C.A. after counseling with Reaca Pearl for 2 weeks

Reaca's been great. She's really affirming and offers lots of direction for my thought processes. First person I've ever laid out all the skeletons too that did not seem to bat an eye and instead weeded through them and highlighted what she thought were important and that we could start tackling. Super glad that we got connected.

Review #16701
Written by J.A. after counseling with Stephanie Schwanda for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, parenting, self esteem, and anger

Stephanie is amazing. There are some things I thought I'd have to keep buried and be able to talk about, but she makes sure you feel comfortable and knowledgeable about her morals and confidentiality and that she is not judgemental. I knew the "hidden issues" were what I needed to get out and learn to accept and move forward. She has been that person, the one person who no matter what didn't judge, understands more than just that, but genuinely wants to help me move forward in many areas and aspects for a better mental wellbeing and stable life. THANK YOU!!

Written by M.O. after counseling with Leslie Jacobs for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship, family, grief, eating, and self esteem

I appreciate how Leslie thoughtfully builds a knowledge base about me and my concerns. And as much as I value a listening ear, I appreciate how she shares analogies and frameworks for seeing my reactions from a new perspective.

Review #16709
Written by R.E. after counseling with Deanna Rasnic for 3 months depression, stress, anxiety, and relationship

I'm a young wife, mother and foster parent who has been struggling with compassion fatigue, approval/daddy issues and lifelong depression. I've been communicating with Deanna for 4.5 months. She has given me so much insight and this time with her has been monumental for me. A blessing from God. I'm doing well right now and feel like my eyes are opened more and some healing has taken place, though I need a whole lot more healing and time...I have hope for the journey to a renewed me:). I look forward to connecting with BetterHealth again in the future if God leads me back. Deanna you have been amazing. Thank you!

Review #16707
Written by C.O. after counseling with Anna Smyth for 2 weeks stress, anxiety, family, trauma and abuse, and parenting

I came to BetterHelp to find some assistance dealing with parenting my kids, who were internationally adopted as school-aged children, and who have the associated traumas and emotional struggles. I have found Anna to be warm, responsive, insightful and persistent - she checks on me if she doesn't hear back in a few days! Would definitely recommend her personally, as well as this service if you either cannot afford traditional counseling and/or you are managing relatively well but need professional, outside support and resources.

After every appointment with Amanda I feel stronger and more determined to get through my issues. She really does a good job of giving it to me straight which is really something I've been needing. I would recommend Amanda for anyone having the same issues and concerns as I am, she really is great.

This proved to be really useful in overcoming some of issues and face exciting changes ahead. Thank you for your help!

Review #16700
Written by S.T. after counseling with Christopher Douglas for 4 weeks

This is my first time using online counseling, but Christopher is very good at responding, acknowledging my concerns, and showing empathy about a topic which required objectivity on his part. I greatly appreciated that. He was integral in asking me specific questions to help me sort though some thoughts and confusion.

Review #16698
Written by A.L. after counseling with Sandra Lancaster for 2 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, and relationship

Sandra is a very supportive, knowledgable and very caring counselor who is dedicated at what she does. She has been extremely helpful in guiding me through my troubles and worries that I have been having, especially regarding relationships, and it is very easy to tell that she is incredibly passionate about what she does, and does her best to do what she can to provide assistance. Sandra does her best to help in the best ways she can whether by providing advice, different perspective, or even just listening to what you have to say about what you may be struggling through. Although having been initially skeptical about online counseling, the service and help I have received from Sandra has proven to blow my initial skepticism out of the water completely. She is a lovely person to talk to about anything, and I would recommend her to anyone who feels they need a listening ear, or someone to talk you through anything you might be going through.

Review #16696
Written by N.A. after counseling with Kimberley Smith-maxwell for 1 month depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family, trauma and abuse, eating, sleeping, self esteem, and career

Kimberley is really really kind and knows how to respond to me as a client even when anxiety and stress levels are very high and I feel like I can't cope. I love her professionalism and dedication to providing helpful tips to manage these things.

Review #16689
Written by M.I. after counseling with Tara Michener for 2 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Tara has been a wonderful counselor so far. She keeps everything professional and the counseling room separate to everything else, while also keeping a light hearted vibe to conversations when the time asks for it. I would recommend her to others and hope to go far with her as her client.

Review #16687
Written by M.A. after counseling with Robert Jensen for 2 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, and family

Mr. Jensen has been of huge help to me during my "crisis" dealing with family. He has kept in touch with me and was always quick to respond to my very long winded and detailed emails - which I found to be the easiest way for me to communicate. I have a hard time sometimes voicing my thoughts on a phone and am better getting to the root of things in writing. He gave me sound advice and led me in the direction of acceptance in the things I can and cannot control. Literally, in my time of need he was a God send and I am very thankful for his service!

Review #16674
Written by T.U. after counseling with Dr. Daryl Temkin for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship, and sleeping

This was amazing! Daryl is THAT GOOD. I have spent almost a year with him and it was a continuous progress. He is patient, he doesn't go around the bush, he addresses things in a balanced way. This is a wise man, I can tell you that. I am a psychotherapist myself and for people like me, it is easy to notice when the shrink isn’t really in the game. It’s not the case with Daryl, and I am very, very happy to have met him. It is also true that the cost-benefit balance for all this experience was totally worth it. I recommend working with Daryl with full three months subscriptions. You will both have the time to explore all things and you give him space to do his job. And he does the job very well. He never disappointed me and he never misses his appointments. He is serious about program, objectives, and everything. In a word, he is very professional and the work he does is worth far more than one is paying on BetterHelp. Totally recommend Daryl! Totally!

Review #16665
Written by G.I. after counseling with Terri Sawyer for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, family, trauma and abuse, and parenting

If you want to feel like you're working with someone who cares like a friend, I'd recommend Terri. She isn't passively there and offering answers only when you send an inquiry. Terri is responsive and actively looking to keep the flow of communication open. She has thoughtfully contacted me to follow up, or offer a call when I haven't responded for a few days. This helps me to focus on making progress with what we've discussed.

Review #16662
Written by A.L. after counseling with Andrew Wurth for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career

Andrew has been a great help in getting me through a rough time. He has helped me realized that my thoughts were behind all my difficulties. He is helping me use my anxiety as a tool to move where I want to be rather than stay paralyzed. He is always responsive and available for live sessions at convenient times. Thanks Andrew.

I have had an awesome experience with Lauren. She is very empathetic to my concerns and always addresses anything I may need to discuss. She is very knowledgable about different counseling techniques and took the time to get to know me in order to help me handle my complex issues.

I can tell that I feel just from the short time I have been working with her and I look forward to making more progress with her help in the future.

Review #16675
Written by K.A. after counseling with Jennifer Moragas for 3 weeks stress, anxiety, relationship, family, sleeping, and depression

I really feel like Jen gives me the space to communicate in my time and makes me feel heard. I like that I did not have to wait weeks to have an intake meeting. I love that I can respond when I have time. There are weeks where I don't have time to talk, and there are weeks where we can write messages back and forth on multiple days. I love that when school starts I don't have to worry about trying to set up meeting times. I am going from 6:30 in the morning until 6:30 at night on usually days, and as a teacher I can't really take of time during the week to have an hour sit down meeting. There are so many pieces that makes using this type of forum work better for me. I have told my family about me doing online counseling and my sister has even passed on my positive experience with her friends, one who was especially interested because they had been waiting over a month just to get started with office visits.

Review #16642
Written by B.A. after counseling with Dr. Carmilla Solomon for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Dr Solomon has been a great gift. She is the perfect Counsellor for me. I am amazed at how perfect the match was. She is compassionate wise and deeply intuitive. I have been struggling with anxiety and her manner is calming. It has made me realize how much I need this kind of support. Her combination of spiritually and psychology is exactly what I needed. I would highly recommend her and BetterHelp's ability to match people with counselors. There is no one in that I know of that would have been right for me and my mind body soul way. I am also thrilled that Dr Solomon is an African American woman. I hadn't even realized just how necessary and how profound this match was.

Kari has helped me and my fiancé get back to who we use to be and love one another more than ever. To compromise and hear one another out.

I love being able to message Andy whenever I need to talk. He responds pretty quickly and always has the positive side to my dilemma! I love that I don't have to make an appointment, drive to an office, and wait around to be seen by a professional. In this day and age, messaging your friends and family is probably more common than a phone call, so it feels almost more personal than sitting in an unfamiliar room/office. I also like that I can access our messages from my computer, phone or tablet no matter where I am. Andy has been great to me, and I look forward to my future!

Diana is incredible. She is nothing like the other therapists I have dealt with or have heard about. She shoots straight and keeps it real. You will actually get answers and help with strategies to start feeling better. Personally I am dealing with some major stress, self-esteem, and relationship trauma and it was really having a negative affect on my life. Within a handful of sessions she has got me to where I am feeling just south of normal again and I am smiling more than crying and that happened today. Diana has really been a serious game changer for me and I sincerely appreciate her help. I recommend her and I have told more than a few people about this platform and told them to see about getting Diana Duran as their therapist.

Pat Sumlin is the best mental health professional I have ever worked with and I would like her to be a part of my life forever. She is very straight forward, honest, caring, insightful, giving, warm, knowledgeable, and helpful. She has given me more tools in a few months than my last in-person therapist did in years. Even if she didn't give tools I would be with her because I love to converse with her - she is very comforting. I am grateful I have someone like her to bounce my life off of and see things from her healthy perspective. I aspire to be more like Pat. Thank you thank you thank you Pat, words don't do justice what you mean to me. You are the best!

She doesn't judge and she tries to let me view things from a different perspective. She also often checks in on me which makes me feel assured that I have a friend to confide in whenever I need help. I would say I am more confident and aware of my own issues that are hindering my way of life. :)

We are still early in our counseling journey with Gordon, but so far we are very impressed. Unlike many, he stayed completely neutral the entire time instead of siding more with one of us. We have been to many couples counselors together over the years and tend to hear the same text book responses. However, Gordon seems to have a different perspective and has given us a whole new way to view therapy.

I have hope that I'll recover from binge eating; this never felt like a possibility to me before.

Written by R.E. after counseling with Carla Franco for 2 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping, self esteem, anger, and bipolar

Carla is helping me to finally make solid changes in my life. She is the first therapist (out of a multitude) who understands my need to control my own growth process, while also guiding me in the endeavor. Whenever I reveal what I want for my life, I am led to answer questions that bring me along the path to success! And no value judgments have ever been imposed to lead me astray from achievement. Thank you!

Written by M.A. after counseling with Winston Janusz for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

I had reached a rut in my life without realising it and had become content doing nothing. One day everything seemed to come crashing down, I was experiencing constant anxiety and bouts of depression and felt like I had passed the point of no return. I decided to try BetterHelp as I felt completely lost and needed someone to turn to before I lost control. I was put in contact with Winston and my only regret is that I didn't seek help sooner. To start with I felt completely alone and that I was past helping but Winston reassured me that I was far from alone, and even better I didn't have to deal with my problems alone. He helped me decipher the issues in my life that lead to this moment, put me on the path to recovering and pointed me towards the tools I could use going forward. I will always be grateful for the help I received from Winston and I'm thankful that tools like BetterHelp exist.

I was completely new to counseling and found an easy and soft way in with Aprile's help. She helped me on a family matter with hinting on the options I had to solve it, but without being pushy. It helped me start conversations in my family in a way I would have normally been too stubborn to chose. I'm very grateful to her for showing my how helpful counseling can be and I feel I'm now ready too seek face-to-face advice by a counselor in my own city and language. Thanks Aprile.

Firstly, I would say that I recommend therapy to everyone. But the convenience of BetterHelp is like no other. There are different options other than just messaging. Dr. Parker has been the exact voice I need in my life currently. She has a way to totally unpack my complicated emotions, gives great recommendations on how to work through those feelings, and mostly she is very honest and real with me. She doesn't tell me what I WANT to hear, she tells me what I NEED to hear. And in this day in age, that is priceless.

I've had a few therapy sessions with Katherine after a long time of trying to find the right therapist- I found the one I was needing in my life to guide me. When you think of an exceptional therapists attributes- Katherine has them all. She's patient, funny, friendly and most importantly she offered me ideas and her approach has been very unique in aspects of how to approach difficulties. Whenever I have a session with her- I feel empowered and ready to take on what life will throw at me. I also love that she's open minded and allows me to show emotions. I'd recommend her highly to anyone who is in need of guidance. In fact i speak so highly of her that my own family is willing to try her out. I love you Katherine- thank you so far for showing me so much.

Dr. V has helped me to open up and share with her the sexual abuse I received over 50 years ago. She helped me with all of the emotions I was going through and how to understand them. I have begun to cope with life and look forward to the future. I cannot thank Dr. V enough for her dedication to her profession in helping her fellow man. God bless you, Dr. V.

Written by G.A. after counseling with Dr. Christopher Blake for 1 month relationship

Dr. Blake is so amazing that it can't be described in words. He has a knack for understanding the underlying problem/issue/challenge. He not only identifies it, but almost always helps you find the solution. He reminds me of my grandpa - its like having some one with much, much more experience than you of life to have a totally 3rd person, objective view on the situation you are in. He is especially good with relationship stuff. I would give him 5 gold stars!!

Review #16404
Written by J.A. after counseling with Aldo Hernandez for 2 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, and anger

I came to BetterHelp.com a complete mess and terrified about what was happening to me, with me, and around me. Aldo and I seemed to instantly bond and he took away the fear of even talking to someone about anything by simply listening and understanding and providing me with what I needed to open my heart, my head, and even my very soul. In 2 weeks, I have grown more and learned more about myself than the 38 years before it. I came here caged and afraid...Aldo quickly became my Jiminy Cricket - that voice of reason with a gentle guiding hand that has allowed me to set myself free. Thank you!

Written by S.O. after counseling with Jacqueline Baiada for 1 month on issues concerning relationship, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and anger

My husband and I turned to Jacqueline for a very personal matter. As middle-aged newlyweds, we wanted to deal with this little bud of a problem before it blossomed into something bigger. Our relationship with Jacqueline was brief, but only because she gave us something to take away to think about - each of us - and that's what we did. We thought and we talked, and all is good. Jacqueline made it very easy for us to discuss the most intimate of issues - she was very easy to talk to. We are very pleased that we reached out to Jacqueline.

She's been helping me keep grounded. I am in a bad state when I signed up for BetterHelp. It's a platform where I could get counseling in varied ways but also it's done at my preferred manner. The one-on-one chatroom works because I reside in a location with long time difference. Karen is patient and emphatically corresponds with me even on instances that I don't notice that I go on tangents because that's what triggering my anxiety and depression nowadays. When I don't message for days or my depression overwhelms me, she reminds me that she's there to help by asking me about my status. I'll keep continuing my correspondence with Karen and utilizing BetterHelp to help me.

Lisa encouraged me to find a job and deal with my emotions in a healthier way. She was always fast in replying and very empathetic in her advice. I highly recommend this therapist to anyone dealing with issues regarding insecurity, negativity, feeling stuck, or family related issues. She is amazing and I really enjoyed working through my problems with her.

Written by C.L. after counseling with Jerry Kuhn for 2 months depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and career

Jerry is a person with a very warm heart. He genuinely cares about you. I came in with a history of being judged very often by others in ways that created anxiety over time. Jerry has always listened to me without judging and that has enabled me to feel safe. By being totally non-judgmental, Jerry has given me the space to express aspects of myself I had suppressed for a long time which has helped me to get back again to the centre of my being and make me a happier person. Jerry is very respectful, open and responds frequently to messages. He is also very humble and ego-less in his therapeutic approach; it is his passion to give you a helping hand and whilst you can rely on all competences, skills and experience, Jerry has a humble self-less attitude. He will guide you confidently with all his qualities, but does so in a very down-to-earth way with an attitude of wanting to serve you and your needs so that you can live a happy life. It has been a great experience to work with Jerry

I had Aprile as my consultant for a month. I was in deep depression and I didn't know what I was going to do with the depression. After I started with BetterHelp and started talking to Aprile Andelle, I felt less lonely. She supported me and helped me through some tough times. She gave me lots of advice that actually made a difference in my life. With her help I went to my doctor, and my doctor referred me to a psychiatrist. I'm going to have an appointment with the psychiatrist next week. It's a big step I ever have made in my entire life. I have hopes that I will be better and have a healthy life.

Andrew made a sincere effort to initiate a connection with me, and asking me what my relationship with alcohol was. He was also candid and honest. I would recommend Andrew. However, I wasn't finding the BetterHelp platform all that conducive to counseling, so I have cancelled my account. By no means is that a reflection on Andrew's abilities or professionalism. He was available and straight up, which I appreciated it.

Charis is such an articulate and understanding person. She has helped me understand things about myself that I never knew, and I consider myself a self-help junkie...LOL. Talking with her over this past month has helped me get through very muddy waters in my life, and I am starting to see the light again. Through writing alone (because that is how I best communicate), she is able to pick out my main issues, even when I go on and on and on....and on, sometimes in a very convoluted way. She knows where the problems lie, pinpoints the issues, and that is half the battle. Thanks Charis!

I really love Amy! She is very responsive... way more than I would have ever expected any counselor to be. At first I was kind of nervous about writing all the time, but she really encouraged me to write in the space between live sessions. I have been to therapy before, and I find it extremely helpful to be able to stay in touch with the therapist = between appointments. This is especially true because often when I would go into therapy, I struggled to remember what were "highs and lows" of that week.

Elyse is very understanding and supportive. She is always there and always responds quickly. Even if I had a bit of doubt in the beginning, very soon she was able to lift me up.

Written by W.A. after counseling with Nita Prasad for 2 months on issues concerning depression, addictions, and self esteem

I am so incredibly thankful I was paired with Nita. She is amazing. There seems to come a time in some people's lives where the personal struggles are more than one can bare, let alone try and unload on a friend or family member when their own personal lives are super crazy. This is where Nita fills that gap in my mentally stressful world. She does this with incredible professionalism. She does not judge and makes my thoughts and actions come together to where I can feel okay with myself again. She points me in positive directions and subtly makes me accountable for my actions & decisions. I look forward to our weekly visits very much. I am incredibly grateful & humbled she has helped me as much as she has & This is just the beginning! I also look forward to continued mental & personal growth with Nita! Thank you so much!

Written by S.A. after counseling with Lisa Stammerjohann for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship

Lisa is amazing. I've never done counseling over the phone, but she makes it so easy and personable. I have been seeing her for about 2 months now and she is an amazing listener and advocates for me when I don't do it for myself. She helps me to see that the negative self talk so many of us suffer from is self-inflicted and has helped me to find ways to curb that negativity into positive self-thought. She is very responsive and although our sessions are virtual I think we've developed a strong relationship and she is incredibly supportive. I'd recommend her any day :)

Written by S.H. after counseling with Jennifer Ferguson for 2 weeks trauma and abuse

I've been working with Jennifer for about 3 weeks now and she has been amazing. She asks me the right questions to get me thinking, which helps me to figure out what it is I need to do. I am very, very impressed with her understanding of a very complicated mental disorder. I just cannot say enough about how she has helped me. I was in therapy for many years and I didn't learn near as much about myself as I have since beginning to work with her.

Written by M.A. after counseling with Dr. Beth Pausic for 2 weeks stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Dr. Pausic is a wonderful therapist and she has been welcoming, kind and understanding since day one. I have been working with her only a few weeks and am still making my way to letting her get to know me, but I feel comfortable and most of all I feel she truly does not judge me and my way of reasoning in a moment of hardship for me. She makes me feel supported and comfortable and I know I can open up about anything. Would recommend her strongly.

Shannon perfectly balances humanity, compassion and knowledge. She is honest, patient and I haven't felt a connection like this since my first real therapist that has moved out of the area. I was nervous to put myself out there again but Shannon's manner made it so much easier for me. I feel that I am once again making good strides toward better mental health. Thank you so much for your service and kindness.

Robin's been great with everything. I wish she was more available on some days when I need immediate guidance, but I know she's got her own practice and patients to work with as well. She's always acknowledging my feelings, and offering up things to try and help me cope with what I'm feeling. She makes sure to work with me to find the best solution for me and what I'm going through in that moment, along with trying to find a long term solution as well.

Written by M.E. after counseling with Catherine Wilson for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, family, and intimacy-related

I tried BetterHelp not knowing what to expect and have been very positively surprised. I thought it would take a long time to explain my situation unsure that anyone could help me. Not true. The very first message I got from Catherine spoke volumes to me. I knew she understood my needs and honestly cared. In just a couple of weeks I went from feeling helpless and numb to feeling a lot of hope for the future. I may have a long road, but I no longer feel lost and alone.

Review #16154
Written by J.U. after counseling with Gail St.James for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, parenting, and self esteem

I cannot believe how fast my counselor, Gail, has helped me, and how much! I am so happy that I pushed myself to sign up with Betterhelp because I can do counseling in the middle of the night or while the kids are in their swim class - anytime I have internet access - even on my low rate smartphone! I love how quickly she responds to me and how personable she is too. She is so educated that she was able to direct me where I needed to go instead of making me talk about things that I feel are not important at this time like my other counselors did. I don't need a babysitter or an appointment and I find it easier to be more vulnerable when someone isn't looking at you. I couldn't have made a better choice! So happy!

I was very pleased with her communication style and frequency, and I felt that she truly cared, even though we would never meet in person. She seems like a very compassionate person, and I am glad that I matched with her. Thank you, Jacqueline!

Cynthia is very friendly and comes off genuine in her desire to help. She seems to be quite open minded and is never pushy or forceful with her opinions. I believe this is a rare trait, especially within health professionals and advisors. She often messages me helpful things to ponder and practice, even when I've been silent for some time. Plus, she's an animal person! Anyone with dogs AND horses, has to be compassionate, patient, and hardworking! I would definitely recommend her to others!

Written by A.N. after counseling with Potoula Diaz for 2 weeks family

Potoula has astonished me with her insight and professionalism. We operate in two totally opposite time zones and I was concerned that this would impact on the efficacy of our work. Not at all. I will be very honest, when I realized we would need to correspond I was dubious that I wanted to do this. I freely confess to being wrong. Our exchanges have been rewarding, educational and amusing, above all, Potoulas' empathy and understanding shines through constantly. She has helped me without doubt and I am eternally grateful to her for this.

Written by W.I. after counseling with Charis Pastor for 2 weeks stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Charis takes the time to understand every last one of your concerns, in depth. Once you mention something to her, she will remember that specific concern and will make sure up to follow up about it down the line. She also makes you feel comfortable discussing anything with her, doesn't make you feel judged, and goes out of her way to ensure that you never feel ignored. You really get the sense that she's not helping out of a sense of duty, but that she actually cares. I would recommend Charis to anyone who's considering counseling.

I've never had to repeat myself or, "refresh," her memory on issues we talked about. She is a great therapist and a compassionate and kind human being!

Ryan has provided me a much overdue and necessary confidential outlet to bounce my ideas and struggles off of. I was in traditional face to face therapy for 2 years after my divorce, but I feel like I have been offered totally different vantage points I had not before considered with Ryan. I do recommend this service to anyone needing a confidential sound board and have actually already encouraged a friend to join.

She addresses a few things at a time and does not overwhelm me, which is also helpful. I would definitely recommend Amy to anyone needing help in reducing anxiety!

Written by J.A. after counseling with Vee Martinez for 2 weeks on issues concerning

Mrs. Vee Martinez has been an immeasurable asset to my improvement mentally and emotionally. She offers such a safe environment to challenge my thoughts and feelings that have been in place for what seems like an eternity. I had a different therapist that was comforting but I didn't feel remotely close to the amount of growth I've enjoyed under Mrs. Martinez in a fraction of the time. She inspires and motivates me to trust and invest in the process of improving my mental and emotional health, as well as urging me to take my own time to refine my coping skills to enjoy more proficiency in dealing with life's stressors. She has me believing I can be the person I was prior to my depression and that I can embrace every new day as an adventure once again. That, I didn't think was really possible before my treatment began. I hoped, but now I can see it.

Written by N.A. after counseling with Jessica Slash for 2 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, and relationship

I knew I needed to seek professional help to process the fallout from a workplace situation, but traveling for a year with my young family meant going to a physical counselor's office wasn't a viable option. I was skeptical about how this was going to work but I have to say that in a few short weeks, I've been really impressed by Jessica as a counselor. She's highly intelligent, articulate and has been able to drill down to the heart of my issue and enabled me to process my thoughts and new perspectives authentically and with compassion. I'm the kind of person who needs to understand the psychological process of what is happening and Jessica has been able to provide me with enough theoretical framework so that I can understand how and why I am feeling the way I am. I honestly didn't think it was possible to develop an authentic, trusting connection with an online counselor, but BetterHelp's platform has proven me wrong. I have no hesitation in recommending Jessica as a counselor.
