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

This therapist is by far one of the best! She has excellent personal interest, skill, depth, and precision in delivering therapeutic techniques for great results. She followed me as I hopped around from one subject to another and still smoothly provided care and help to me. Her empathy is out of this world. From the very first session, I have felt understood, a sense of relief from my grief, and confident to manage my mental health in a positive manner. Of course, I would strongly recommend her but the quality of work she delivers, quite frankly, recommends itself! You will not be disappointed if you choose her.
