Staci has been an enormous help to my life, if it wasn’t for her I’d probably have gone back to the bottle and not be where I’m at today. I am forever grateful for how much she’s done for me

Through the start of this journey I feel like I have gotten more out of the last couple of weeks than I got out of months with an in person therapist.

Staci Waites is very relatable and doesn’t talk over my head so that I can’t understand anything she is trying relay to me.

I am so happy to have found Staci Waites and Better Help. I don’t typically have time to be in an in office session. I am very happy with both Better Help and finding a therapist who understands my needs and concerns.
