Reviews

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

I'm going through a really difficult time right now. At my advanced age I've never been a big believer in "talk therapy" but Sergio has completely changed my point of view on this. He has been interactive, professional, recommended varied points of view to tackle the ongoing problems, and didn't just sit and say "so, how does that make you feel?" Thanks Sergio and thanks BetterHelp for this platform which is so much easier for me than driving in to someone's office and getting all dolled up just to have a discussion.

Sergio has been very helpful in giving me insights and things to consider when making decisions in this difficult time of my life. His perspectives on why things might have happened helped me to better understand my situation and how to proceed from there. I’m looking forward for more sessions with him. Highly recommended, he’s really an awesome therapist, thanks so much, Sergio!

Excellent therapist who really cares for his clients. Listened very well and always has really good advice. I would recommend to anybody that had the same problems as me, and I’m sure he can help others with different problems as well.
