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

The help and feedback that I am receiving from Christine is helping me stay sane when my world around me appears to be in chaos. She helps me see outside my box of beliefs and behavors and guides me to see the situation more clearly, while encouraging me to set my boundries and not accept responsibility for everything that others put on me. Without Christine's help, I would just continue to acquiesce and apologize to everyone, in order to keep the peace, and in so doing, feel a little more worthless and irrelevant. I am working to change my behavior and to stand up for myself. I must stress how important it is for me to have her as a sounding board and guide, during this very stressfull time in my life.

Christine is easy to talk to and a great listener. I enjoyed my time with her.
