Tameka is heaven sent! I started seeing her about a year and a half ago and honestly I don’t think I could’ve made it this far without her. She is an amazing listener and provides genuine feedback with tools to help you do the work it takes to make the changes you want or need for a better life. Tameka exemplifies her expertise through her down to earth personality and empathic skills, while providing a safe space for you to freely express yourself. I recommend her for anyone on the journey of self-discovery and finding their self worth or building self love, healing from traumas, dealing with narcissistic relationships, anxiety/depression, and CPTSD. I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for Tameka. SO grateful for her ❤️

She is such an amazing therapist. Instantly when I spoke with her I just knew she was a great fit for me. I am not naturally a vulnerable person, so the fact that I was able to open up to her so easily really says a lot. She is an amazing listener. Also she recommends books and tools to use outside of therapy that helps keep me on the straight and narrow. When I first met with her, I was in such a low place in my life, but investing in therapy has truly been the BEST one yet. I am excited for my future and I'm happy to implement what I have learned. I am truly thankful for Tameka. She has changed my life. I would highly recommend betterhelp, especially because of her.
