Selena is an excellent counselor. She is so patient and really works with you to tear down your walls and grow as an individual. I've personally made great progress and am very content with her as my therapist.
If I could give Selena 100 stars I would! she's been extremely helpful and has given me a lot of good advice and has helped me more than I thought someone could in only 4 sessions!
She is very professional and knowledgeable. She is very punctual and always checked on me even when I wasn't responsive. I couldn't recommend her more!
Ms. Selena kept me focused on the issue to which brought me to connect Betterhelp. As a therapist, I learned a few new tools and felt comfortable to be a patient instead of therapist.
Selena has a very calming spirit and makes you feel at ease. This aspect of her personality really helped since this is my first time seeking any type of therapy. I appreciate her gentleness.
