These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Russ Sanders. 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.

Written on Jan 23, 2022 after therapy with Russ for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and intimacy-related issues

I was really nervous starting therapy after so many years, but Russ has been nothing short of a great listener and very supportive and helpful for me. If I would’ve known how comfortable it really is talking to somebody like him, I would’ve done this years ago!
