She is great, always listens throughly and very convenient on how to communicate with each other.

Sandra is the first therapist I matched on BetterHelp, and I have been having her sessions ever since. She’s like a big sister and she’s really supportive. I also believe in Sandra’s expertise because she gave me practical and useful tricks and insights to help me, and also offer worksheets and tools to help me. I really appreciate her help and I definitely would recommend her to my friend if anyone needs a professional therapist.
