Reviews

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

The only thing I regret about working with Samuel is not finding him sooner. I have multiple issues and he has been able to help me start working through them all. I find the worksheets he sends super helpful. I was so scared of therapy because I knew I would have to feel my feelings ( I've avoided so many) but he has made it less intimidating/overwhelming
