These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Susan Gallenz. 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 never had a better therapist. Dealing with chronic health concerns is exhausting and it is hard to ever feel like I have progress, but Susan is the first one to change that for me. She actually gives me things to work on that actually help in my day to day life. I highly, highly recommend her.

Susan is a very kind and approachable therapist. I feel no judgment from her and I enjoy her folksy kindness. Her dogs are cute too!

She is a great match for me. I can truly be authentic during my sessions which matters so much to me. To be able to be transparent and vulnerable in a safe setting where my feelings are validated speaks volumes.
