Barbara is very good at listening and understanding things that I am struggling with.

I always look forward to her emails back, especially when I am struggling with something and need help understanding what is bothering me.

Review #32442
Written by M.A. after counseling with Celeste Souza for 9 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and lgbt

I have been working with Celeste for nearly a year now. Prior to Celeste, in my entire life I have seen 6-7 different therapists for differing lengths of time. Remarkably, Celeste, an online counselor, has been the best! No one is more surprise by this than me. I wouldn't think an online therapy situation could be better than an in person therapeutic setting, but in this case it is. In fact, after working with Celeste for a few months I no longer felt the need to see my other in person therapist, that I saw once a week in her office. The quality of Celeste's counseling was just so much better. Celeste is extremely compassionate, understanding, and supportive. When we have a session I always feel she is fully present, and she usually has insights I would not be able to come to on my own, and again I am no novice to therapy. Overall, I would say I am very pleased with Celeste, and BetterHelp.

Written by D.E. after counseling with Virginia Truglio for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and bipolar

Virginia Truglio is an excellent counselor and very well qualified for helping me with my issues. Right from the start of talking to Ginni we've had a connection that makes it easy for me to open up to her. I never had that before with any previous counselors. She's only been treating me for a few weeks now but is very educated on my issues. By thoroughly explaining to me whats happening and able to answer any questions I have its helping me with my healing process. She's being there for me every step of the way. Ginni also promptly replies to my messages and provides me coping skills during my week points. I can't thank her enough for all she's doing for me.

Review #32411
Written by A.U. after counseling with Beverly Rivard for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

If you're looking for a counselor who is incredibly kind, empathetic, experienced, and genuinely addresses all your concerns without skimming over issues, then I highly recommend Beverly. Beverly is a great listener when you need an understanding ear, and she will also provide little activities and exercises to help you along the way. She quickly identifies what your underlying concerns are and will guide you and offer a fresh perspective. Beverly is also incredibly open-minded so you can approach her with any topic and feel accepted and welcomed. She has an in-depth understanding of various spiritual practices and can help with trauma in this field, and also with connecting you to your personal truth. What I really love about counseling with Beverly is that she empowers YOU. There's the proverb that goes: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." Well, Beverly is the kind of counselor who will teach you how to fish!

Review #32371
Written by V.I. after counseling with Kelley Machado for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Kelley is like no professional I’ve ever worked with before. She asks questions and points out behaviour that I have never and would never recognise myself. Kelley understands and dives to the root cause to work our way back through. I’m relatively new to working with Kelley, but she has helped me more in the few sessions we’ve had compared to other professionals I’ve wirked with for months. I didn’t even recognise that other professionals were not as effective for me until I started working with Kelley. I’m really glad I joined, and I’m thankful for Kelley’s strengths.

Review #32370
Written by K.A. after counseling with Katy Webb for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, intimacy-related, sleeping, and self esteem

I have had many counselors in my life. Katy Webb is perhaps the best. BetterHelp does a great job at counselor/patient pairing - Katy and I clicked right away! She has a unique way of learning about her patients, and it never feels like a "classic" therapy session. She makes her patients feel like good friends and is very open about her life and past experiences. I cannot recommend her enough. Her passion for her job is very obvious. If you want a great counselor who genuinely loves what they do, wants to know you personally, takes you seriously, and gives you the right advice without sugarcoating, then you need Katy Webb.

Written by B.R. after counseling with Atlantis Gothe for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, eating, sleeping, self esteem, and career

My counselor is a good listener and offers me a variety of supports and exercises to heal. She also checks in when she hasn’t heard from me, as well as responds when I reach out. Honestly, no one is more surprised than me at how effective this type of counseling can be. I work in human services and I would definitely recommend this app, BetterHelp and Atlantis to others in need of tools to heal their lives! She is a strong dedicated professional and I am grateful for this experience to progress.

Written by L.U. after counseling with Tad Lusk for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Tad has been the best counselor I have ever had. I really enjoy the sessions we have, we do the chatroom and it allows me to relax in a room and just type out all that I have to say. Tad is very quick and helpful with his replies as well. I trust him and know that he is out for my best interest. I would recommend him to a friend in need in a heartbeat.

Frances has been an amazing counselor to work with. She really listens actively and identifies your concerns, and gives you constructive work to do around those issues. She's very responsive and kind, and has a very good way of integrating strategies like mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy into her practice. Working with Frances daily has been undoubtedly much more beneficial for me than traditional counseling.

I am really enjoying working with Katherine. She is kind while still being very candid and clear.

Review #32347
Written by J.E. after counseling with Maryann Whalen for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, intimacy-related, parenting, and self esteem

Maryann has been a wonderful therapist. I've seen approximately 6 or so over the last 20 years, and have found Maryanne to be just as, if not more, effective, attentive and helpful as any in-person therapist I've had. Sometimes using written language can lead to misunderstandings, but Maryann is always quick to ask clarifying questions and verifies that she's interpreting my words correctly. When she hasn't, she is gracious and addresses the real concern rather than implying that her initial interpretation is the right interpretation.

She is very active and constructive with feedback rather than being a passive listener which works so well for me because I am a "do-er" through and through.

Written by B.E. after counseling with Patricia Lord for 4 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, family, grief, intimacy-related, eating, self esteem, and career

I really enjoy working with Pati. I have had 3-4 live sessions with her and signed up for three more months. I feel like she genuinely cares and listens (she remembers intricate details about what I told her the next week). I really feel like I can make progress with her and move on from some painful experiences in my life and look forward to our future sessions and healing.

I feel really lucky to be her patient. I am very confident in her skill as a therapist. I am likely one of the most challenging patients any therapist could get, so if she can help me, she can help anyone. So to me she is one in a million.

Lindsey is awesome! This is my first experience with any type of counseling and I was terrified and didn't know what to expect. The moment we first talked I realized how wrong I was. It's an amazing experience. She listens to all I have to say and always seems to know what I need to hear. I would recommend her and this service to everyone.

Addy has been so patient, kind and genuine with my needs. She’s incredible at giving applicable resources to help me with my depression and anxiety issues and has a real knack for making me feel comfortable in talking to her. She’s just a really sweet, understanding person who doesn’t just give you an assignment or resources. She helps you through them and helps you understand the importance behind the things she assigns. I’m very thankful BetterHelp matched us up.

Review #32210
Written by S.A. after counseling with Victoria McKenna for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Victoria allowed me to feel heard and understood in ways I never thought possible. Her genuine kindness and empathy is profound. She was flexible to my needs, so our conversations both flowed naturally and were very effective in carrying out cognitive behavioural therapy (which helped me a lot!). Her perspective was extremely valuable to me as I gained insight to myself that I would never have seen alone. She taught me that I am capable, and that I can have what I want out of life without stressing so much. I feel very empowered, after just a short period of therapy with her. Thanks Victoria!

Review #32249
Written by D.O. after counseling with Lisa Wyatt for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, self esteem, and career

Lisa is simply fantastic! I have been working with her for almost a year now. She has helped me through ups and downs in both my professional and personal/family challenges. She always responds within 24 hours (or gives plenty of warning if she won’t be able to) and each time I get a response, I find it helps me regain calm and perspective. I have absolutely no doubt that my life is better today than it would have been if I had not spent the last 10 months messaging back and forth with Lisa. She has also always been available for me to do live sessions when I really need them. As a side-note (and having nothing to do with Lisa directly), I think it is important for people to have the right expectations when it comes to getting the most out of BetterHelp. You are not going to be able to hash everything out in a few days (especially if you’re not doing live sessions) but message-by-message, slowly but consistently over time, you will get better. And I think Lisa Wyatt is the absolute ideal when it comes to having that long conversation. She has been that for me. :-)

Written by L.O. after counseling with Cris Roman for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, self esteem, and anger

This is still a pretty new relationship, but so far it is going well. Cris is compassionate, non-judgemental, and responsive. He has been able and willing to adapt his style of therapy to match my needs, and frankly I've found that to be a fairly rare trait in therapists. I'm not a particularly easy client. I have a tendency to be opinionated and easily annoyed, but whenever that's happened, Cris has been completely non-defensive and willing to listen to my concerns. He is encouraging, but never bossy or pushy. Overall this has been a very good match.

Written by B.R. after counseling with Jeannie Hughes for 3 weeks on issues concerning family, and parenting

Jeannie H was the therapist assigned to me when I reached out for help. From the beginning she was very attentive, compassionate, and patient as I explained the dynamics of what brought me to the online counseling forum. Her feedback was instantaneous which let me know that I was a priority for her during our online conversations together. Her level of expertise was and is greatly appreciated by me as what was concerning for me was a situation regarding my youngest child and a possible mental disorder so her help allowed me the ability to find clarity, understanding, and most importantly stop blaming myself.

I’d struggled finding the right therapist for a few months and had honestly gotten frustrated. After my first call with Ilani I knew I’d found a good one. She listens well and then guides you through practical methods for dealing with your issues-which for me was really bad anxiety and a constant state of being overwhelmed. In our few sessions I’ve felt like she understands me and respects me in a comfortable space.

Written by C.H. after counseling with Brenda Carlson for 1 year and 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, parenting, self esteem, anger, and bipolar

Brenda is the best counselor/psychologist I’ve ever worked with. Considering how many years and how many people I’ve worked with in my struggle with anxiety and depression I’d really almost given up on working with someone who had as much interest in general conversation about my issues and practical/helpful every day advice as they did discussing the psychological roots of my issues and throwing all the big words around and labels on everything. Brenda is easy and comfortable to share with, always kind and understanding but also very practical and open with her ideas and perspectives in her responses, even when it’s not immediately easy for me to accept or understand. She works with me as I need her and always responds in a timely fashion, as well as checking in with me when I have slacked in communicating with her. I can’t imagine ever working with a better counselor for me. BetterHelp is the best thing I’ve ever experienced in working with and managing my depression in conjunction with the medications I need. It (and Brenda) makes it convenient and more appealing to continue with the long term counseling and guidance that I know I need.

After speaking with her on the phone, I got the sense that she's not only professional but also experienced because she knew what advice to give, and provided comfort and support without being too fluffy (lacking in substance or specificity). I have confidence that she will help me unpack this jumble in my head, and help me sort out the pain points in my life. I am very thankful to have her help!

Written by J.E. after counseling with Angel Mothka for 6 days on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, sleeping, and self esteem

Angel is a warm and kind person. She above all else made me feel comfortable (as I have a tendency to be nervous). She was flexible with scheduling and did video and phone calls with me because I believe sometimes feelings can get lost in translation (text). She was never intrusive and listened to my concerns. I asked why I had certain issues and she was able to break down the basic mechanics of how brains work. I had an in-person psychologist before telling me to, "just breathe" and drove me crazy because I didn't understand the reasoning behind it. Angel introduced that reasoning that I needed and it was super helpful! She gave me simple solutions that I am applying now. I feel better and it's lovely having someone to talk to who cares. Plus, she has a cat and it popped up on the camera to say hello. It was hilarious. When I've "hit another wall" I will be sure to use Angel again!

Written by S.A. after counseling with Dr. Christina Forzani for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, and self esteem

Dr. Forzani was the supportive, empathetic, and rational guide I needed during some very rough times when I had virtually no hope that I could continue my sibling relationship. Dr. Forzani provided a calming voice of reason when my mind was running in circles, and offered insights that helped me better understand the "why" underlying people's behaviors. After working with Dr. Forzani for several months, I now have more self-confidence and feel better equipped to navigate a future relationship with my sibling. Dr. Forzani is a highly capable therapist and I'm so grateful for having had the opportunity to work with her.

I thank God for Julie, we have had many counselors in the past but Julie is the 1st that I feel relates to both my wife and myself equally. I think she really cares about our situation and I don't get the sense that this just a job to her. Her expertise is extensive but more importantly she values her clients as human beings with real issues. She communicates with respect and shows us how to do the same with each other. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs guidance, in our case for marriage counseling but I'm sure she is just as good in many other areas of therapy.

I've been working with Jill for just under a month & have already made great progress. She is a great counselor & a great person in my opinion. She uses humor a lot in her therapy which to me humor is one of the best medicines there is. I think too many counselors have a approach that's that too cliche as I've seen in my past experience & that happens to be completely the opposite of how Jill has been counseling me. I'm going to continue to work with Jill & the progress has already been significant and that means the world.

Charlotte is the first councilor I've ever had and she definitely puts in the time and thought in the "why" behind the problems which is fantastic. Due to my work schedule and traveling picking up around this time of year, I had to end my counseling after a month since I knew I wasn't getting the most out out of it if I was only able to respond once in a while between breaks in my schedule. This was a bit of a test run to see how I liked counseling since I've never tried it before. I do plan on resuming counseling with her at a later date. Thanks Charlotte!

We’ve touched on a wide range of issues together from work related struggles, to family matters, to old traumas, to small troubles, as well as the deep bigger picture stuff. Kimber cares and it shows. In our sessions I feel heard and understood… All I can say is that it’s a rare gift. I believe that the insights I’ve gained from our time together will be valuable long into the future. That’s why I plan to continue with Kimber on my path of healing & growth.

I was matched with Jeffrey Craven based on the issues that I was facing. I am comforted to know that he has also experienced physical, sexual abuse, and domestic violence during his lifetime. I believe that because he has personal experience with what I am going through, he can help me overcome my issues. His 28 years of experience is also valuable to me, because that shows that he is very knowledgeable and knows what he’s doing. The fact that he has overcome his issues, and is able to help others overcome theirs, gives me hope that I too, can overcome my issues and face what has happened to me in my past.

Phoenix has been great. I know that during our first session I was a little all over the place trying to explain what was going on. He demonstrated his support with his understanding responses. He sent me worksheets that had tangible steps that I could use during troubling situations. As he received my responses, he would encourage me to share more (if I was comfortable) and he allows me to have a huge hand in how I receive help. That to me is a sign of respect for me as a whole person. I couldn't have asked for a better counselor, at this time.

Written by J.O. after counseling with Emily Genever for 5 months on issues concerning depression, relationship, and self esteem

Keeping this kind of short, but Emily has been a great counselor during a time when I needed some professional help dealing with life's circumstances. She was attentive, empathetic, and provided me some insight I just couldn't attain on my own without someone else's input. She got me to a point where I was significantly better than when I started, and I would consider her work with me to be a significant success.

Highly recommend Harry for stress management, relationship issues, career stress and self motivation. Harry had been very helpful in helping me overcome the hard and depressing time in my life. He always gave me full attention and listened thoroughly and patiently to all my problems before giving me advice, he never rushed. He is very good at breaking down problems in small chunks and helping to take action on each part in a constructive manner. I really liked his way of counseling.

Molly is amazing and I'm so glad I got paired with her. We haven't worked together for very long, but in the time we have, she's helped me a lot. I was coming from an abusive situation, am going through a divorce, and dealing with new relationships and just trying to figure everything out now that my life has done a 180. She has been really great in addressing all of my concerns and I feel like she really takes time to think about her responses to me. She responds in a very timely manner and I feel very comfortable with her. I'd recommend her to anyone who wants an attentive, positive, supportive, and judgement free counselor.

Written by I.Z. after counseling with Cheryl Stanton for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Growth takes time, especially when you're working on wanting to better yourself. I think what I find most helpful is not only Cheryl's patience, but her support and compassion. It makes an immense difference. She actually cares to teach you, help you but most importantly makes sure that you understand the process as well. She's an amazing counselor, non-judgemental, listens to you and what you express and is overall a genuine counselor and person to confide in that does want to see you grow through a tough process. 10/10 in my book

Review #31901
Written by C.H. after counseling with Markus Fitzpatrick for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, and self esteem

Markus is very professional, though even when I write that I think of someone being good at their job but that is all they are focused on, but that is not at all when I mean when I say it about Markus. He is very friendly and makes you feel so comfortable. At the beginning I was so nervous about my sessions with him and worried about them on the day. I have now finished my fourth session with him and I felt totally comfortable talking to him about what had happened in my week. He finds the perfect balance of encouraging you to talk, and take the first step, without it ever feeling like he's pushing you to talk. It seems as though he really recognises what kind of person you are but not just to understand and help you but also to adjust himself, saying jokes, how he presents himself, and it helps you to feel at ease with him, allowing you to open up more. I am very happy I am able to have him as my counsellor and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a friendly face to help them with whatever they might be going through.

Review #31890
Written by J.E. after counseling with Karen Fischer for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship

I've never worked with a therapist before. I don't have any mental illnesses or familty trauma, so I assumed I wouldn't get much out of a therapist. However, as a frustrated single woman in her 30s, I reached out to Karen hoping that she could help me recognize and improve on some of my dating patterns. As a result of our messages and phone calls, I'm breaking out of self-limiting patterns. I'm approaching my dating life in a way that's way more healthy and fun, rather than gossipy and dramatic. It feels great, and Karen has been instrumental to that change. No amount of self-help books would have gotten me to this point. I strongly recommend Karen to anyone looking for an approachable, responsive, upbeat therapist who can help them better understand themselves.

Talking with Allison has really helped me open doors to understanding myself better. I can vent about my day and what is on my mind, and in my mess of words she will be able to find what set me off when I couldn’t find it myself. She tells me truthfully and honestly what she thinks would be best for my situation, and each time I have taken her advice it has helped tremendously. She’s direct yet personable. On days when I don’t get back with her within 24 hours she will send me a quick message asking how I’m doing and check in with me. It’s been really nice talking to someone who isn’t judgmental and is genuinely here with my best interest in mind.

Stephanie has been amazing. I have trust issues and was struggling at first because of that, feeling like she understood where i was coming from and getting accustomed to doing counseling online. During our time together she has helped me to do work that I'd either forgotten how to do, knew nothing about, or had never even considered. She helped me to understand a different and much gentler way of seeing some complex things such as forgiveness, inner-child work, and of course the beauty of daily gratitude. I am forever grateful for my time with Stephanie and would highly recommend her and this platform to everyone!

When someone is there for you, helps you to overcome the worst feeling and experience of heartbreak, knows what you like, knows your family members by name - even if you don’t have energy to write a word, you receive a message saying "I am there for you." When someone gives you tools to overcome the pain, does not push you but inspires you to try new things, and to go out on weekends, and checks on you to see how things went. I cannot call her therapist, I call her a blessing. Thank you Em for being always there. Thank you for helping me see things differently. Thank you for helping me be stronger and have things under control after a long way of struggle.

Speaking to Jacques every Monday continues to be the highlight of my week. I recently moved to a new country and was suddenly accosted by severe anxiety and depressive feelings. Jacques makes me think beyond my immediacy--he weaves in research, philosophy, personal experience and so much more in between. When one feels isolated, a meaningful conversation and the gentleness as well as the lack of judgement associated with that interaction can give a person the strength to carry on. Jacques is the first counsellor I have ever spoken to in my life. I wish I had the privilege and the pleasure of knowing him much earlier. I believe he genuinely cares for the things I am going through and with each session I end up trusting him more. For this alone, I am filled with gratitude.

Written by P.E. after counseling with Lauren Abasheva for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, intimacy-related, and bipolar

As someone who has been looking for a therapist that I get along with for many years now, Lauren is the first who I feel legitimately comfortable with. She's very understanding, and more than anything she has helped me to better understand myself so far. But even beyond comfort, she has helped me to improve myself, helping me to see my problems from a perspective that I would otherwise have not considered. I hope to continue working with her for quite some time, as she is one of the best therapists I've spoken with in my lifetime thus far.

So of course, we highly highly recommend her!

Written by D.R. after counseling with Janet Huff for 1 year and 3 months on issues concerning relationship

Janet was completely understanding and spent a truly large amount of time understanding my specific position. My relationship with a personality disordered person meant she did a host of research along with her personal knowledge of the subject to assist me. Truly something unheard of. Unlike a traditional setting, her ability to convey suggestions and direction rang through her written and voice communications.

Written by V.A. after counseling with Carla Fort for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and anger

Even though I have never met Carla in person, I really felt like she was reading and understanding my concerns. I didn't question her expertise, I really believe she makes a difference, being able to read, write back, and most importantly, answer my concerns. I never used this method before, but I recommend it because she touched on some things that changed my perspective and she gave me the boost to really believe in myself and that the changes I made were positive. When I get an email from her, it really makes me confident that I'm not alone and sometimes, it's almost like talking to a friend.

Review #31812
Written by R.A. after counseling with Jennifer Yates for 3 months on issues concerning relationship, and self esteem

When I decided to try online counseling, I was in a low place and needed another woman to listen and understand what was going on in my mature woman's mind. I was paired with the amazing and personable Jennifer Yates, and I couldn't have been happier with her counseling. She got me from the start- she honed in on the areas where I needed the most self reflection, she provided invaluable articles and resources, and always checked in on me. Counseling doesn't work if you're not honest with your counselor, and as scary as it was to be that vulnerable, her feedback was eye opening and healing. After three months, I'm in a very good place. I would recommend her to anyone.

I’ve been working with Anne for 3 months. I feel as if she has helped me so much! She has encouraged me to look past my diagnosis and focus on healing and living in the now, and not dwelling on my perceived failures in the past.I have had several in person therapists in the past and I continued feeling discouraged because I felt they weren’t really grasping my feelings. In contrast, Anne genuinely listens and has meaningful insight regarding my feelings. She encourages me not to judge how I’m feeling. Anne has helped me draw connections with my emotions and behaviors which I had not realized on my own. Although I have only been working with Anne for a short amount of time so far, I have started to truly feel as if my mental health recovery is possible.

Written by A.A. after counseling with LaShica Hemingway for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, parenting, and self esteem

LaShica has been a welcome presence after several years of not-quite-right counselors. Her warm and understanding demeanor, as well as her openness make our sessions feel less like an evaluation and more like a conversation where we explore new concepts and behaviors in a constructive, friendly way. I feel like she has taken the time to understand where I am coming from and challenges me to grow in a positive, attainable way.

Donamarie has been helping me for several months now. Her insights are razor sharp and she always provides me with new ways of thinking about the issues that we discuss. Donamarie seems very dedicated and passionate about her work and she always gets back to me quickly with feedback, exercises, and next steps to help me progress through this journey at whatever pace I choose. She is thoughtful, kind, intelligent, sympathetic, empathetic, and an all-around beautiful soul. I feel extremely lucky to have her as a counsellor.

Peter is always there for me with a professional yet fresh point of view on things. I’m very easily hurt by words, but Peter has never said anything that would make me feel bad or worthless. I trust him a lot and I strongly recommend anyone to trust him too, and just let him help you, because he can definitely do that. Peter is not only an amazing professional, but also a great person as well. He has helped me a lot and I’m very thankful I got to work with him!

Emily has changed my life. She make me feel comfortable about myself. I am more confident about myself and what I want in life, and am a more assertive person. All of these not only effect my relationships in life but also effect the way I communicate with people around me. Less worrying is the most important thing because I can enjoy a great moment in my life more without thinking about something that not necessary, my life is more happier, just like what I wanted.

I have always felt disconnected from most of the in person counselors I saw throughout my life. I love better help, and Michelle was very helpful and understanding and non judgmental when I started to open up. She has a good balance of zeroing in on issues that could be explored deeper and asking questions regarding certain subjects, but also gives me enough free reign on how our session goes that I can feel good about our discussion.

Review #31692
Written by J.E. after counseling with Cindi Stewart for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I feel like I’m getting an incredible service by getting to work with Cindi. I’m grateful that she’s able to work with me over chat and I’ve gotten a response within 24 hours every time even when I was writing every day. I feel confident that she’s understanding me because she’s able to read between the lines and see the big picture and help me see it too. I also appreciate her honesty. After my vent about how life’s hard I expected a response similar to my friends and family, i.e. you’re doing your best, it’s not your fault, etc., Cindi did an amazing thing and showed me how I’m really blowing things out of proportion and reminding me that life happens. She explained it in a way that I could understand through the panic. I appreciate her worksheets and her messages always give me something to think on. I have lots of people in my life to coddle me when I’m being a baby and If Cindi had done so I would have felt better in the moment but it wouldn’t have fixed anything. I feel like she’s the kind of friend who is knowledgeable and knows how to give it to me straight in a way that’s easy to understand and accept. This is the most comfortable and honest I’ve been with a therapist (I've seen a few). I feel like the improvement I’ve felt thanks to Cindi was 100% worth the price of my subscription. No matter how much I ramble she can pick up on the key issue and help me address it. I meant to subscribe for one month during a particularly stressful time (wedding planning) but I realized there’s a lot of issues that I’ve been putting on the back-burner that I I want to work out. My improvement gives me a se we of comfort that I don’t need regular therapy for life but I can always subscribe for a few months here and there whenever life gets a little too hard or I feel myself needing a reality check. I plan on recommending this service to several family members who I know struggle with similar problems.

I would have to say I'm impressed with BetterHelp and with Beverly Rivard. She's been nothing but great to me and my concerns. I have a really messed up schedule and can't always see a counselor in town, so this app is a God-send for me. I've only used it for a month now, but I appreciate my counselor and the help she provides along with just checking in when I haven't. Thank you Beverly and BetterHelp. I will continue to use this app, and continue to get help from Beverly because, again, I cant express this enough- she is by far the most helpful and understanding person.

I badly needed help and was losing hope at first that online counseling works. I changed counselors 3 times because nobody seemed to care or respond at all. I trusted my gut feeling after reading Christina's profile that she will be the one who can help me and It did not fail me. Her first reply to my messages gave a boost of hope that I will be and can be better. I feel cared and understood in her every reply and that helps me a lot. I still am looking forward to my everyday conversation with her and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs help or just someone to talk to. Thank you Christina!

Tameika is great. She strike a great balance between listening, giving advice, and walking you through your current thought processes and how they align with their goals. She offers a very real, down-to-earth perspective that specifically helps with the relationship issues I talk about her with. I both get a lot of insight and clarity in my calls with Tameika, and I genuinely enjoy speaking with her. I would recommend her to anyone!

His attention advice and listening really helped get me back on my feet and stay there during these ongoing troubles. I recommend him to anyone willing to give this venue of therapy a true shot.

Review #31473
Written by P.H. after counseling with Rebecca Navarre for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, parenting, self esteem, and career

I have found working with Rebecca a very positive experience. When I first started online counseling, I was unsure of the whole process and my mental conditions were at their worst. I was not sure if counseling was a good idea at the time after messaging heaps and not getting as many messages back as I hoped. But, I took a step back, started trusting in my self (as Rebecca encouraged) and listened to the core of what my counsellor was saying. I am happy to say that in the two weeks of counseling I've had, despite many stressors, I have improved a lot! Online counseling has had a significant impact on the way I respond to stressful situations and relationships. Some of what I have been told hasn't been easy to hear as it's so accurate (the truth can hurt!), but Rebecca's technique gets to the crux of the matter and deals with the issue head on. I also know to trust her advice, as she is highly qualified and what she says works. When I communicated that what she said was a little too much for me to hear at times, she adjusted her approach to meet my needs. She has helped me understand difficult emotions and why I feel a certain way in a very collaborative and empathetic way. I would highly recommend Rebecca as a psychologist :)

I wasn't sure about how effective online counseling would be or if I would be able to connect with the counselor assigned to me. I just had my 3rd session with Rick and I already feel miles apart from when we started. I highly recommend BetterHelp and I especially recommend Rick.

Jenny is by far the best counselor that I have ever experienced. She seems to be able to pick up on exactly that you mean, even if you're unable to express it clearly. She really does take the time to read everything and respond with great insight. She is both supportive and extremely helpful at the same time.

Words can’t justify how much she helps and how her sessions are a key aspect of my overall improvement.

She is an amazing soul and one I’m grateful to have met.

Nora Durand has been exceptional in helping me pinpoint my problem areas regarding my anxiety and what triggers it. She has been amazing about checking in when time gets away from me and days lapse.

Beth has a insightful & practical approach to the issues I wish to work through and always responds in a caring, respectful manner that allows me to feel safe to open up & trust her coaching. I love the process of contacting each other with one/few thoughts to consider each time as I don't think my mind could have handle so much information at a time. It gives me enough time to reflect and internalise the new things I'm learning. Counselling experience with Beth has been more than I imagined and I'm really thankful for the steady progress I'm making as a result of her support along the way. Thanks Beth!

I didn't see any hope for my situation before I met Renee. I was very codependent, powerless, and afraid. She really helped me to step into my own power and take back control of my life. I noticed I started being less afraid and more willing to speak about my feelings after talking to Renee. After being quiet for so long, it changed my life immensely. I owe her more thanks than she'll ever know, and I'll never forget her.

She is timely in her responses and never fails to inform me ahead of time if there's a period in which she can't respond. Dr. Lechnyr never fails to be compassionate and professional, showing well honed skill with every response. If her expertise is within your needs you'd work hard to find a better option.

Written by E.M. after counseling with Jennifer Fishman for 4 months on issues concerning lgbt, family, parenting, and anger

Jennifer is an effective counselor. Her approach to therapy works well for me! I could use a bunch of descriptive words to describe her personality or her approach to therapy but I think that the question most people reading these reviews want to know is "can Jennifer help me with my issue(s)?" I have been working with Jennifer for several months now and speaking from my personal experience I can say that the answer to this question is unequivocally YES. This doesn't mean she's magic; therapy requires a lot of hard work on my part! If you've never been to therapy, my advice to you would be: keep in mind that making changes to your life doesn't happen overnight; rather it is a process - one that, for me, has unfolded organically and gradually with time. Best of luck to anyone who enters into the therapeutic relationship with Jennifer- you'll get out of it what you put in!

Matthew has taken the time to address all of my concerns and he listens to what I have to say without judgement. He very openly talked to me in the beginning about his therapy style and asked me what I wanted to get out of therapy and how therapy works best for me as well. We have multiple methods of communication from video calls to messages in between to keep him updated of my progress and to also keep myself accountable for the goals that we set. I would highly recommend Matthew to anyone in the LGBTQ+ community as well as anyone in the Poly community.

I wasn't sure how this form of therapy would feel(writing, rather than face to face meetings) but I find that it is quite possibly a better form of therapy for me. I do not feel on a time crunch to get the appropriate information out and based on questions she asks, I can spend some time processing the information before writing her back. It has been very helpful.

Dr. Branch has been a wonderful source of support while I navigate stressful times. She has a gentle but straight-forward approach to her counseling which can be very helpful when situations feel emotionally overwhelming.

Written by L.E. after counseling with Annie Milam for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

In the short time I have been talking with Annie Milam, I feel I am learning how to change my life around. She has helped me not only work with my anxiety, but also work through what is causing it. She's very kind, very open minded and seems to really care about what I have to say. I was very nervous about counseling because I had never tried it before, but she has made it a wonderful experience and I'd recommend her and BetterHelp to anyone.

Written by K.E. after counseling with Elaine Godoy for 2 months

I love the option of being able to text, call or video chat if needed with such a busy life. Elaine opened my eyes to something I had no idea existed to be the root of a problem and she listened no matter how many emails repeated the same thing. Honestly had she not given me the clinical information from her side I am not sure how much longer my confusion and crying would have lasted.

Written by D.A. after counseling with Debra Lawson for 2 months

I have been online counseling with Debra now for about 4 weeks and she has been extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She has a lot of knowledge on different types of therapy, such as CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and EMDR. She was able to identify certain issues I was dealing with after I explained my symptoms and suggested the appropriate style of therapy that we could work with. She gave me homework and followed up each week to see what type of progress I made. I would definitely continue counseling with her as she was very knowledgeable and has helped me with my depression and anxiety issues.

Review #31297
Written by D.E. after counseling with Kimberley Smith-Maxwell for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and grief

Kim came to my aid at a low point in my life when my dad was ill and slipping into dementia that included saying some hurtful things to me. I was able to talk through, via texting at my request, the story and have found it relieved the anxiety I was experiencing. I found a compromise with him that allows me to visit with him when my sister is there - she calls me on FaceTime and I get a chance to visit with him. But I've removed myself from trying to listen to him when he slips into dementia and i try to make sense of what he is saying only to realize that he isn't thinking clearly. I feel like I have peace again thanks to the Lord using Kim in my life. I highly recommend her if you are struggling with an issue. She is compassionate and thoughtful.

Written by G.I. after counseling with Dr. King Counts for 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, and self esteem

I've been talking with Dr. Counts for almost 7 months and he really helped me to deal with my problems and with my big obstacles. He's a very competent counsellor with a lot of experience, he had a lot of patience with me (and with my bad English), and he was always supportive, encouraging, friendly and warm. I truly appreciated his kind words for me, his useful and effective advice, his methods and exercises that helped me to know myself better and to understand where some of my problems began. I know that, if now things are starting to change in my life, it is also thanks to his work with me. He gave me the basis to start living fully again without feeling lost and weak, and he taught me how to calm myself when things are getting difficult. I know that a chage like this requires time and a lot of efforts, and I'll continue to follow his suggestions to reach it totally. I'm very grateful I had the opportunity to meet him and to start this important process with him. I truly recommend Dr. Counts, he's a great man.

I really don't have anything to comment on yet she is the first time I've ever used a counselor but so far in conversations and suggestions she has made show that she has more experience in anger control than what I do.

Review #31274
Written by N.I. after counseling with Alissa Green for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

I found BetterHelp at a time in my life where I was so desperate for help and guidance that I was at a crossroads. I decided to look for alternatives to regular counseling or therapy because they are so expensive and I was very lost. When I found this app I have a brief description of myself and my troubles, I was matched with a counselor the same day. Nothing against this lady but she recommended a book to help learn better coping mechanisms for stress and had I not been so far along in depression this would have been a wonderful start. I decided to switch counselors and to give as honest and to the bone description of what I'd been through and how I was having difficulty dealing with my emotions, and again, my desperation. In short, I was looking for someone who would read my bio and know what they were going to really be helping with. It took until the next day to be matched with Alissa. She was thorough and personal, thanked me for being so honest about the vulnerable issues I had described and approached me to consider for help instead of jumping write into therapy. She is very goal oriented, but it's your goals, the personal milestones that she helps to make clear and more achievable than progress for the sake of progress. I had to quit BetterHelp months ago because I couldn't afford it and am in a better place financially but was recently going through a very difficult time, I thought I'd overcome. I reinstated my subscription and messaged Alissa asking if we could talk. She answered me within the hour and we scheduled a video appointment for that same day. The turn around from being able to speak to someone who is knowledgeable and genuinely cares has made a big difference in my life. I'd recommend her and Better Help to anyone who feels they need some guidance before it gets to the point I was. It doesn't need to be completed that hard and it's such a relief to know there is help and good people out there. Thank you for what you do!

Joan French is amazing! She is really nice and kind. I love how she uses different techniques to help you, for instance art therapy. Art therapy has been helping me heal from the traumatic event that I have been through, and also helping me express how and what I am feeling! She also makes you feel comfortable to talk to her. And she also give you good feedback and will explain something to you if you don’t understand. And one last thing, if you do the homework assignment as she calls them; you will get more out of therapy. Your not just talking to her, but also do activities that will help you heal, and or move past what your going though.
