Shermandra is a very good listener and gave me great advice and support. She gave me a different perspective of what I am going through, and helped me to see I was not alone. Highly recommend!

I am new to better help, maybe it was a technical issue or something on my end, but my session was cancelled 30mins beforehand?

I had really hoped it would work out. I logged on to the better help app ready to begin my appointment at 8pm, but I waited about 20 mins and even sent her a message about 5 mins in to see if she was available, and never got a response. It’s a little disappointed as I really hoped to begin my journey to better my mental health. I will be looking for a new therapist that can be punctual or at least, respond or message me if she is running late.

Shermanda so far had been Really great. She’s really relatable, and always seems to care and listen to what I have to say.

Excellently great at her job. Went straight for the point on things she thinks needs more attention first. Doesn't interrupt you or try to tell you "it's all in your head" or make you have her belief of things as most councilors and therapists have for me. She's very knowledgeable on the topics she covers for herself as described in her bio. She is very patient with you too.
