I never thought I would need therapy before but after coming to some realizations and accepting my faults I came to BetterHelp and Shanita was able to transform me into a better person. Shanita was very compatible and easy going in the beginning which helped get my mind right. From there we were able to work together to tackle my mental state. She guided me in the right direction and was able to meet consistently to keep me on the right path. I’m now in a great place in life and I couldn’t thank Shanita enough for everything! I highly recommend her sessions!!!

Shanita has helped me so much! She is a great listener and gives me different perspectives that help me to look at things in a better way. She has excellent recall of what we’ve discussed in previous sessions and always gives me something to work on that is beneficial. I appreciate her so much!
