These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Whitney Thompson. 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.

Whitney Thompson is such a relatable and compassionate therapist who offers fantastic insights. She also fully understands my ADHD brain and my need for external processing (lots and lots of chatting and seemingly unrelated tangents that DO relate somehow LOL!). I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an expert teammate in navigating mental health issues!!

Whitney and I have had one video session so far and have been messaging back and forth since, she is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I’ve been in and out of therapy for about six years, although we’ve only had one session, I’ve clicked with her better than any other therapist I’ve had. She makes exploring new tools and coping mechanisms less intimidating and offers relatable perspective on issues! Highly recommend!

Here’s the thing: I’ve had bad experiences with therapy in the past. Whitney has changed my view of therapy completely. I feel heard, understood, pushed but not judged and most of all she is just a joy to talk to. I am generally the therapist for all my friends and family so it’s nice to have the roles reversed for a change. Whitney is the second therapist I’ve tried through BetterHelp. The first was not a good fit for me. It was so easy to switch and immediately things clicked with me and Whitney. If you are looking for an open-minded, supportive therapist who is ready to figure out your needs and be by your side as you reach your emotional or mental goals, she’s your gal!

In my short time with Whitney, she’s been amazingly compassionate, caring, and laid-back (in a professional, but open way). I appreciate how accessible and accommodating she is and I suggest her to anyone looking to start therapy.

I've only had two sessions with Whitney Thompson, but so far I'm really enjoying meeting with her every week. The first appointment she asked what works best for me and I could tell she took the into account at our next session. Overall great experience so far.
