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

Where I live, we have very few options if you rely on the medical card. I have never had consistent therapy- and every therapist I have had has come from one local agency; and has been a rotating door of temporary practitioners soon to move on to private practice. Many were both overbooked and also unqualified for the extension of my trauma. It’s also impossible to make progress when you see your counselor once every 3 months.

Teretha and I have only had 3 sessions, but we have covered more ground than I ever have in therapy before already. She is very methodical, a great listener, and is reassuring of all this by asking thought-provoking questions that challenge me to dig deeper into the conversations we have. I am optimistic for the first time about the theraputic process and Teretha has reassured me that she is supportive and optimistic, too.

As someone who was extremely hesitant to begin therapy, I am SO happy I was given Theresa as my therapist. I have only been to a few sessions but I am way more comfortable talking with her than I thought I would be. While I know it may be difficult, I am excited to continue my therapy journey with her.

Teretha is wonderful! She understands my concerns, my issues and she listens. She understands my struggles and reassures me that I’ m going to be ok. Taking time for myself is ok. She is helping me working to my ultimate goal of peace.
