In the few times I’ve met with Sonia, I am so much more encouraged and relaxed. I can sleep 7-8 hours now whereas before I was only averaging 3-5 hours of sleep. Sonia patiently listens and helps me understand my own feelings so I can make better choices for myself. I am so grateful to her.

I've been using BetterHelp for a couple of months now and have been paired with other wonderful therapists before but I believe Sonia is the perfect fit for me. She has the expertise to help me with my sleeping problems and her insights have helped me a great deal.
I find my situation to have improved a great deal since I started my sessions with her. She offers practical and useful solutions to my problems, which I appreciate very much.
