The more I get to work with Shara the more I appreciate her and my time on BetterHelp. She really is helping me process a lot of things in my life not only the main trauma that brought me here but work, moving to a new state, and much more.

Shara is an amazing therapist. She helps you to understand what can be the root causes of your behaviors, and gives you resources to confront them in a healthy constructive way.

Although I've only known Shara for two weeks, I do feel like I have a pretty good sense of her as a professional and as a person. She has a way of opening up about herself while also learning about you. I have no prior experience with therapy but I feel like I've lucked out with Shara! Excited to continue to grow with her.
