I look forward to speaking with Ms. Shonda every week! After my sessions with her, I always leave feeling empowered and confident that I can get through all my situations. She helps me realize different things about myself and helps me to analyze things from different views. She is truly amazing and I am so thankful for her.

Shonda’s caring and honest approach during sessions helped me gain a healthy perspective on many things about myself that I didn’t fully understand.
The exercises and assignments also helped me get a grasp on how I could move forward and change the things I needed to change.

I find Shonda to be observant, thoughtful, respectful, honest, and kind as a counselor; varied in experience and also able to continuously learn through our conversations. My reason for seeking counseling is quite specific and unique, with multiple mental conditions and gymnastics at play, causing me to be hesitant to even seek counseling to begin with but BetterHelp matched me perfectly it seems and Shonda has showed up even above and beyond what feels like would suffice for the average seeker. I am extremely grateful for having found Shonda; I believe when we are going through a hard time, the way we walk through the hard time can either be medicine or poison for our future. In only a couple of sessions I already feel heard, felt, and seen by Shonda as well as on my way through this challenging moment where, with Shonda's help, this moment can be medicine that turns the grime into gold. Thank you Shonda and BetterHelp. I highly recommend Shonda.

Shonda is an excellent counselor. She's a great listener and gives great feedback. She's very relatable and has a calming spirit which makes it easy to talk about my problems.

I had bad experiences with other therapists before and I almost gave up. Shonda changed my mind and I feel very comfortable talking to her and I feel very cared. Therapy day is my favorite day of the week!

Shonda has been a blessing, she listened to my troubles with no judgement and always made sure to send me an actionable follow up (either through practices or worksheets) post session so the lessons discussed won't go to waste.

Talking with Shonda is like talking to a knowledgable and skilled sister. Remembering her counsel I think I will move forward in a more heartfelt way.
