These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Sara Gardner. 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.
Honestly I was so surprised at how engaging she is, I’ve never had a therapist in the past lead me to my conclusions so easily, but also guide me in the direction I want to go in. Strongly recommend Sara!
