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

I have tried many a therapist and Ms. bao is the only one I have resonated with long term. She is very empathetic, a great listener, and is very patient. She guides the conversations quite well and even takes notes and remembers all the characters from my stories (even the non major ones).
Wonderful 10/10 would recommend

Written on Feb 06, 2024 after therapy with Sixuan for 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I won the lottery with Sixuan! She is a skilled therapist who listens & prompts at just the right time, and challenges me in all the best ways. She is always on time, never cancels, and is engaged in our discussions. I have thoroughly enjoyed our sessions and am looking forward to many, many more!

Sixuan Bao is very patient and encouraging. I am able to be open and honest about how I feel about a variety things in my life and she is able to help point me in the right direction in helping me design a plan towards my goals. I like that the goals are realistic and achievable. I also like that she checks in to see how I’m doing with my goals during the week. It helps me stay on track because of the accountability.
