Written by B.R. on Aug 03, 2020 after counseling with Torchessa for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and compassion fatigue



Torchessa is a angel sent from God. After working on the frontlines in NYC for 6 weeks and having to be alone for a 2 week quarantine, I was in much need of therapy. I was overwhelmed with life and Torchessa gave me the tools I needed to properly process my feelings in a healthy way. She is kind, supportive, compassionate and a great listener. Having her as my therapist was definitely a blessing and helped me through very tough times! I am so thankful for her.

I've been working with Torchessa for about a month and so far she has been an excellent counselor. The assignments she provides really help me to have an objective view of myself, and help me to see areas where I'm strong and areas where I need improvement. Our weekly meetings are always made better by her kindness and humor.

Torchessa has been such a great help for me. It had been a while since I’ve last been in therapy and I really like how I can have the professional help that I need right at my fingertips. Torchessa is always a message or phone call away! She provides excellent worksheets to help you reflect and think deeply about your concerns with great feedback and discussion. She also takes the time to research outside resources for support and these include techniques that you can incorporate into your daily life. She is such a great therapist and is very knowledgeable on several topics. Thank you Torchessa!

Written by S.A. on Jun 12, 2020 after counseling with Torchessa for 3 weeks on issues concerning career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I am thankful for my time with Torchessa. Torchessa gave me the tools that I needed to get through a tough time in my career. She listens attentively, and gives thoughtful, positive, and often humourous, feedback. It is clear that Torchessa is passionate about helping others. It is evident in her compassionate communication and willingness to go above what is expected.
I have received therapy a few times in my life prior to Better Help, and this is honestly the first time that I have felt that the counselor had genuinely cared. Thank you Torchessa. I hope to work again with you in the future!
