Sandra is the best counselor I’ve had, ever! I came to better help with caution that I might not find someone I trusted enough to actually talk to. As soon as I started talking to Sandra I was surprised by how much I’ve grown to like her and take her advice. She is so caring and takes the time to listen and respects me.
Sandra know what she is doing. Excellent counseling and a very warm and emphatic person.
Sandra is very nice and really knows what she's doing. She takes the time to listen and respects what I say. I would definitely recommend her.
Sandra is a really great counselor, I couldn’t except for better advices, she really helped me. Thank you to her.
I am totally amazed at the trusting relationship I had developed with Sandra over the last six months. She is so attuned to what is going on with. For the first time in several years I am finally engaged with counseling again. She is truly accepting, insightful, helpful and amazing. Would highly recommend her to anyone.
She is very understanding and knowledgeable about anger and ways to deal with it.
Lovely person and good practical advice.
Sandra is a wonderful counselor and I’m very happy.
Helpful, responds to my issues, and gives me help and worksheets to work with.
Sandra is an absolute Godsend. She is very understanding and supportive and helped me deal with things. She genuinely cares about my well-being and makes herself always available when I need her. I have improved greatly and am fixing lifelong scars with her guidance. She is truly an asset to BetterHelp.
Sandra is supportive and caring, but will also be frank with you about what she observes from listening to you. I would recommend Sandra to others.
Sandra offers wise and heartfelt counceling, listens to my concerns, and provides me with new and more helpful ways of seeing and approaching situations.
I really like her. I can feel she is listening to me and takes me seriously which is so important. It helps me to think that I am not crazy but that I am just a girl who needs help. Thanks you Sandra!
Sandra is a very supportive, knowledgable and very caring counselor who is dedicated at what she does. She has been extremely helpful in guiding me through my troubles and worries that I have been having, especially regarding relationships, and it is very easy to tell that she is incredibly passionate about what she does, and does her best to do what she can to provide assistance. Sandra does her best to help in the best ways she can whether by providing advice, different perspective, or even just listening to what you have to say about what you may be struggling through. Although having been initially skeptical about online counseling, the service and help I have received from Sandra has proven to blow my initial skepticism out of the water completely. She is a lovely person to talk to about anything, and I would recommend her to anyone who feels they need a listening ear, or someone to talk you through anything you might be going through.
Sandra was able to help me during a time of high anxiety. She provided tools and practices that really helps ease my mind. I would highly recommend Sandra to anyone dealing with anxiety or stress.
I am thankful for Sandra's insights and all I've learned through my sessions with her. She is very caring and understanding even when I do not agree with her. Her acceptance and validation has made all the difference!
Sandra was able to identify the source of my struggle within the first 20 mins of my first live session.
I'm looking forward to continuing with her.
Sandra is extremely warm and kind. She approaches everything from a place of empathy and seems to genuinely care about her patients. I'm really enjoying working with her to help me through a tough time.
