Review #44208
Written by D.A. after counseling with Leigh Cascioli for 1 year and 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and career difficulties

I really love working with Leigh, she's really great to adapting our sessions to what kind of counseling I need. Whether it be an honest discussion about how I'm feeling, or to help me process something that happens, or just to devolve into a conversation about something that happened during the day. I've benefited a lot from working with her over the past year and really appreciate the flexibility and availability of the BetterHelp platform.

Review #44193
Written by J.A. after counseling with Dr. Melissa Marote for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

Dr. Marote has been exactly what I was hoping to find with BetterHelp.com. She is open to primarily written communication and responds with knowledge and helpful guides, worksheets and actionable suggestions. What's more, when I felt challenged and asked how she personally dealt with a situation, she was willing to dive in and share her personal experiences. She has been exactly what I was looking for, even more than I though would be available.

Terri has created a safe space for me to discuss my feelings. There is no judgement. She always gets back to me when I need to share something... Those 3 things, a safe, judgment free zone, where I feel heard... are something I've never had before. I'm thankful I took a chance on betterhelp!

Review #44180
Written by A.N. after counseling with Dr. Leila Ortiz for 2 years and 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and career difficulties

Dr. Ortiz was so helpful in that she was patient, kind and responsive to my thoughts/feelings that I was quite overwhelmed by. She was very understanding and professional in that she was able to maintain perspective and identify issues when I couldn't. She is professional in helping identify issues, and I would highly recommend her if you are new to counselling and you want someone to make sense of your situation and help you find a path to overcome it.

Review #44177

Lauren is very attentive, understanding, and always supporting you from your corner. She is very flexible, always makes herself available, and really wants you to succeed and be happy. She is a fantastic listener and has great insights and advice on how to tackle whatever challenges are in front of you. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is wonderful and would be beneficial to anyone lucky enough to have her as a counselor.

Review #44173
Written by R.U. after counseling with Dr. Joelle Kallio for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Dr. Kallio is great! She is a great listener and is really skilled at addressing and targeting the main point of my sometimes long-winded concerns/problems. She gives great advice, and everything she says is personalized to ME and my situation. I never feel like she is spouting out psycho-textbook babble. She has been very helpful!

Review #44164
Written by D.E. after counseling with Victoria Scott for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and grief

Victoria immediately started giving me practical advice for the problems I am facing. She listened and assured me my feelings were justified but she emphasized the importance of not allowing the pain of the past to keep weighing me down. She focused on looking to the future and using what I’ve been through to propel me forward. It means so much to me that I can text her at any time and she will get back to me in a timely manner. She has quickly become someone I can share my thoughts and feelings with. It is clear she cares about her clients and is passionate about her work.

Written by L.I. after counseling with Dr. Steffanie Sciandra for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, eating disorders, anger management, and bipolar disorder

Dr.Sciandra is patient, understanding and kind. I feel very comfortable opening up to her and trust in her ability to give me professional advice. Dr.Sciandra allows you to discuss difficult topics throughout the session but leave feeling better or more adequate to deal with issues. I strongly recommend Dr.Sciandra!

Written by G.A. after counseling with Steven Sanfilippo for 5 months on issues concerning lgbt, relationship issues, and self esteem

I've been working with Steve for a while now, and I have to say, as someone who has been through many counselors, I've never had a better therapeutic experience! Steve listens attentively and reiterates what you say to make sure he understands it correctly. He asks really thoughtful and insightful questions and never makes me feel judged about anything I tell him. When I message him, he is always quick to respond and provides just as much support through written messaging as he does over the phone. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Review #44124
Written by B.R. after counseling with Erica Mau for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and adhd

Erica is a remarkable listener. She is able to sort through the lengthy correspondences I throw at her and pinpoint exactly where to start and how to help. She’s working with me on many different aspects of my life for which I am grateful. Healing is a slow process, but the frequency with which you can speak to your counselor with BetterHelp helps to write down exactly what you’re feeling in the moment instead of having to wait until you see someone in person on a certain day. That process has helped me immensely so far. I’m so glad I signed up!

At my lowest point, I discovered Wendy. She is smart and intuitive and strong. She listens intently and without judgement. Her confidently compassionate manner evokes trust, which in turn allows a therapeutic journey of self reflection, correlations and discovery. With her help, I have found solutions and alternatives to grief, crippling self-doubt and pain. I feel Wendy is truly interested in the wellbeing of her clients.

Justin is very good at listening and figuring out the best way to treat his clients. When I switched to him, I immediately told him why I stopped working with my previous counsellor, and he was very understanding and promised he would not use the same tactics as them. He even utilizes things like music therapy, which is awesome for me, both as a musician and a person with severe ADHD. Would definitely recommend him.

I am going through a very dark time in my life currently, and I’m so very thankful to her for being there for me more than just a quick call once a week. She’s always messages me back when I am in the middle of a crisis. I think the longest a response ever took was 10 minutes. She brings me back down and has literally saved me. I highly recommend her! She’s great.
