I have found Joy easy to communicate with and her approach and techniques to deal with my challenging situations effective and now feel like I'm more in control.

Joy picked up on some things that I needed to address very quickly. I looked at my issue from one perspective, but she rapidly helped me to re-think that one. I haven't really been seeing her for very long, but I feel like I am making progress. The anonymity of the Better Help experience has made it easier (for me) to open up with Joy. She has been extremely caring and conscientious throughout my counseling. I would recommend her as a counselor for anyone who needs a little TLC and insight.

Thank you for being so patient with me, listening to me when no one else seemed to listen.

Joy has been fabulous! She IS a joy to work with. I feel accepted by her; I feel listened to; and it gives me hope to know I have her to text my worries and issues I want to work on in order to, hopefully, improve my awareness of why I repeat certain behaviors, so that I can stop repeating them and improve my life.
