I’ve found Valerie McFarland to be very beneficial to my therapeutic process and journey of self discovery. She has provided a kind ear to my concerns and valuable insights into my situation. I feel that her personal and professional experiences, distilled through her approach to therapy, gives her a unique perspective amongst the therapist I’ve encountered. She has helped me to address my responsibilities and my productivity has increased in a healthy manner. She has helped me find my ability to express some of my feelings and ideas that I previously couldn’t articulate. Regardless of any other services from BetterHelp, my therapeutic sessions with Valerie are worth the subscription cost.
