I feel so fortunate to be working with Anita. Her experience and professionalism shows in how she responds in a steady, nonjudgmental way to the various topics and issues we discuss in our sessions. She is very attentive and asks questions which help me open up and process what I'm going through and makes recommendations around what materials and best practices I can use to work through situations. She is incredibly kind, empathetic, and a role model for strength, compassion, and self-care. I highly recommend working with Anita

I'm so grateful to have Anita as my therapist! She is kind, respectful and has really opened my eyes to the benefits of having a therapist. Thank you so much! I can't recommend Anita or the Better Help service enough!

Anita was wonderful. I had tried therapy before and was hesitant to try it again because my experience with my therapist was not very pleasant. But that all changed with Anita, she listened so well, she did not make me feel invalid and she said things in ways that got through to me. Would 10/10 recommend her to anyone I know. Thank you Anita

I've only had one session with Anita so far but she's wonderful! She allowed me to talk through my issues and just dump information on her. She has been a great support over the past few weeks and she is a genuinely kind soul.
