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

Sonya has been amazing. She listens, she understands, she provides necessary knowledge and expertise during our discussions and she helps provide different perspectives to discuss. I love our sessions! It has helped me through painful, stressful times. You will find her very refreshing and easy to talk to.

I’ve had 1 session with Sonya and I feel incredibly heard and understood. I’m so glad I was paired with her!
