These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Vicki Budd-Darby. 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.

Very kind and compassionate person. Listens well and asks good questions to get you to think about your answer. Definitely someone who makes it pretty easy to talk ; even coming from someone who gets awkward of FaceTime with anyone .
