Written on Nov 30, 2022 after therapy with Venecia for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, bipolar disorder, and compassion fatigue

Venecia is the best therapist I have ever had. I didn’t have a good experience with therapy so I was a little hesitant, but I decided to give it another shot. She has helped me SO much within the last 4 months. She is so positive and gives the best advice. I always look forward to our weekly calls. I am so lucky to have connected with her. I have seen such an improvement in my life since starting therapy with her and I would 1000% recommend her to anyone who needs therapy.

Though I've only had a single session with Venecia, I feel confident that working with her will be a great experience. She is knowledgeable while also empathetic. During that first call, she offered both food for thought and constructive criticism, and some of the things she suggested during that session are still ringing in my ears.

As I sought out a therapist during the pandemic through BetterHelp. I was very specific about my intention, what kind of therapist I desired and the results I had hoped to accomplish. Mrs. Venecia Ebneof exceeded my expectations from the start and has earned my trust and confidence to guide me through very tough times in my life and has acknowledged and celebrated my wins and progress as well.

From the start Venecia was a great match to help me with everything I was going through in my life. She was patient, kind, and displayed so much empathy. I had previously done in-person therapy and never was completely comfortable opening up to a stranger, but I knew I could open up entirely with Venecia. I learned so much about myself and mental health during our weekly sessions. I enjoyed all the various tools I could use to help me on my journey and I continue to apply most of them to this day. I'm forever grateful I had Venecia as my counselor and that BetterHelp introduced me to an amazing human being!
