Reviews

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

After 13 years, I am glad to have made my way back to therapy. After putting some basic criteria for the type of therapist I was looking, I was "assigned" Shawn Beard". I've been extremely pleased. I'm very grateful for the wisdom and guidance that Shawn provides!
