Yvonne is an asset to BetterHelp. She is fantastic at what she does. Always on hand, she’s punctual, helpful, supportive and such a lovely person. I feel very comfortable in talking to her, she is always encouraging. She’s very analytical when giving advice and always explains everything. I would highly recommend Yvonne.

Yvonne has been so helpful in my short time I’ve been in counseling. She’s compassionate and really listens. She’s also helped me realize that I need to be kinder to myself and that eventually I will be ok.
