These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Rodney Collins. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
He’s absolutely great I always look forward to our sessions!
My first session with Rodney was great. I left feeling encouraged and was given some tools to help me navigate some things. Thank you sir!
Since I’ve been working with Rodney, my life has improved. I’m learning a lot about myself and taking some new paths in my thinking patterns. Trying to ditch some old bad habits that he’s helped point out in a chill way. Also supporting my recovery work. Overall a great person who cares.
This dude is awesome. Like, really awesome.
Rodney does a great job listening to my concerns and offers feedback that relieves a lot of my stress. His advise has helped me grow without feeling pressured. I have also learned a lot of helpful reframing techniques from him, on how to get out of a negative spiral.
He is a fantastic listener and is great with the little details. He helps me look at problems through a different perspective and visualize different approaches to a healthier mindset.
Rodney helps to guide me in my journey and challenge my thinking and under his help my trauma reactions get better.
I feel so heard and he is offering incredible useful advice!
I would highly recommend Rodney Collins as a therapist. He has a calming demeanor and listens to his clients fully with respect and integrity. He has been personally, very patient with me on trying to find solutions to my problems even when I've repeatedly said similar things in order to fully understand. He gives incredibly effective advice that is simple but a way to change your way of thinking toward your needs. Thank you Rodney
Mr. Collins has been great in helping me through a tough time in my life. He has been instrumental in helping me slowly heal.
What a truly wonderful first experience with counseling. Rodney Collins is a terrific help. Calm, polite, informative and educational experiences with this counselor have led me to resolve many of my life's struggles. I now look forward to handling the tough situations life throws at me. I feel I can better process them now. What a joy! Thank you!
He is a great active listener and counsels me right where I am at.
Rodney is great! He has helped me to make great strides in my mental health!! Thank you!!!
Rodney is great. Very helpful.
Rodney has been a very large part of my recent growth and I always look forward to my sessions with him!
Rodney is wonderful. Dealing with Covid-time issues as well as a host of other concerns, I felt like anxiety was starting to rear its ugly head. I connected with Rodney, who was able to be the ear I needed and offer support and guidance. I don't really enjoy talking to counselors, but Rodney made it easy and comfortable.
Rodney is wonderful. He is patient, and insightful and has really helped me. Unfortunately I wasn't able to keep seeing him as long as I would have liked due to financial changes, but he is very good at what he does.
So happy I’ve been able to connect with Mr. Collins, such a great alternative to regular in person counseling. Mr. Collins has provided exceptional service to my needs and has really changed my outlook on things, in a very short time. Thank you to him and this amazing app.
Dr. Collins has helped me a ton with processing the emotional turmoil of my divorce. Men’s mental health is often overlooked, he listens attentively and has been great to work with.
i'm enjoying our talks!! i really feel Rodney is helping me overcome my issues with men and gives me great ideas and different ways to think of things
I have been very reluctant to talk to Rodney because I'm dealing with issues I'm not ready to disclose. He has been extremely patient and kind. I recommend him to anyone struggling with finally reaching out.
Thank you. You are very helpful and it has been a pleasure working with you. I hope to work with you again when my budget allows.
I really like my therapist and feel he will be able to help me
He gives advice in a way that makes sense logically
I was incredibly nervous starting the session. Rodney could tell and helped me through it. I enjoyed talking to him. I cried several times in our first session and never felt judged. Only felt sympathy through a screen; which is hard to do. I appreciated the tools he gave me. I wished the hour was longer!
He gives me the space to talk and tries not to interrupt me, which can be hard to do over the phone. He handles the long distance communication like a champ. Hes also very kind, positive, and upbeat but knows how to be calm when talking about harder topics. Hes also very professional but knows how to take a joke. Overall I have no complaints and always look forward to our talks.
