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

Shelly has been wonderful to talk with. I was anxious when considering therapy, I thought I would end each session feeling emotionally exhausted. Talking with Shelly feels like talking with an old friend who helps dig a little deeper into situations affecting my life, and I end our sessions feeling upbeat and positive.

Shelly is an amazing therapist. She checks in on me frequently if we haven’t had time to speak in a while and she’s very flexible if I need to cancel or schedule a different time. She helps me navigate my mental illnesses, identify my strengths and weaknesses, as well as every day challenges that we all struggle with. I am a strong believer that every person could benefit from therapy of some form. No matter your issue, Shelly is definitely a person that will try to help you to the best of her ability.

Shelly is a very positive and up beat therapist she’s great at questioning the important topics to make you look at a situation from all viewpoints while having some fun and jokes in there so your therapy expo is not all about the problems in life and you can have some fun while helping your mental health. She’s very supportive and inspirational Shelly has shown me a great first time experience in therapy!

Shellys attention and care has been a support I have leaned on heavily in the past few weeks/months. I relate to her and find it easy to discuss any and all topics of struggle or triumph, this transparency has given me a dependable platform for her advice/encouragement/wisdom as well as my own reflection/self-understanding/growth. My substance abuse past and other issues aligned with her experience as a therapist and I emplor you to give Shelly a chance to better help your honest growth.
