Working with Shon was wonderful. Dhe was extremely supportive, asked great questions, and helped me collect some tools that I'll use going forward.

Sharmekia, or Shon, has helped me so much during the past couple of months. She listens to me intently and provides helpful feedback. Working with her has been productive and beneficial to my mental health. I also enjoy talking about college football with her. Talking with her is a nice balance between therapy and talking about everyday life. I am so grateful to have found her on BetterHelp.

Shon is amazing! we clicked from the first day we met and I knew I wasn't going anywhere. She has been there for me through some tough times giving me words of encouragement and showing me how to self love. I feel much more calm and free since going to her. I enjoy all our laughs together and I love when she reminds me of everything I have accomplished in my life. Definitely and amazing therapist and I would recommend her to anyone!
