These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Tolana Murphy. 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've had a few therapists in the last decade, but Tolana is by far the best therapist I've ever had. She is so empathetic and non-judgmental. I feel listened to and understood by her and that, in turn, encourages me to completely open up and be honest with her. I have never felt so comfortable talking with someone about all my thoughts, opinions, and issues. I highly recommend Tolana - she's definitely a light in this world.
