About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I feel so fortunate to have found a therapist like Adrienne; she has truly changed my life. Through her expertise and warm personality, she has helped me to open up about painful past issues and work through them by enabling me to find a new perspective and love myself even if I’m not perfect. She can make me laugh through my tears during difficult moments, or quietly give me tender reassurance that sorrow and tears are perfectly okay. In the few months we have been working together she has already helped me reach some of my mental health goals, and I have every confidence that with her continued assistance I will be empowered to reach them all. If you are looking for a therapist that is an experienced and skilled professional, who can put you at ease and make you feel like you are talking with a trusted old friend, then you are looking for Adrienne!

Adrienne is an amazing therapist and she helped me deal with grief and overcome it. Our session was helpful to me because it allowed me to see some positivity in my grieving processes.

Adrienne is such a wonderful match for helping me. From the very first conversation I felt so listened to and "met" where I was, and helped, and not judged, that it felt like speaking to a best friend that really "gets me".

Best therapist. Really talks through your problems with you. Helps you identify short falls or patterns that keep you in that endless loop you desire to break. She really takes the time out to listen and really understand what it is your saying. She also gives the best solutions and can tell you based on factors occurring, things said, and the situation as a whole very accurately possible outcomes.

Insightful, resourceful, professional and sensible. You really have the impression that she cares and that she understands and knows what she is talking about. Knowledgeable and compassionate.

She is such awesome therapist. I couldn’t ask for a better one.

To say Adrienne's work has been life-saving and life-changing for me would be an understatement. I connected with her during the pandemic when I was struggling with deep depression and anxiety that I had no idea how to deal with or talk about with anyone. She taught me so many techniques about how to live and build a life I am proud of by combining her professional expertise as a counselor with her caring spirit. I was very skeptical about therapy in the past because of a few experiences where I felt like I wasn't being heard or understood and spending a lot of money but seeing no meaningful results. Adrienne's care and counseling, however, have been invaluable to me and shown me that there are truly good and talented people out there that can help you get better and heal, even when you don't even think that is possible.

Adrienne continues to be a lighthouse in the midst of the turbulent waters we are currently living in. So grateful that I discovered BetterHelp and even more grateful to have been paired with such a wonderful therapist!

Adrienne has been a light for me in a very dark time. She listens very well. You know she is a good therapist when she tells you things you don't want to hear but know you need to be the one listening. I could not have gotten through this past year without her. I'm so glad we were matched through

Great therapy sessions. Highly recommend.

R.A.·Aug 01, 2021


Just recently started working with Adrienne and loving it so far. Important to have a counselor that can relate to you on some aspects and challenge you as well , Adrienne does that well. Easy to talk to and very accommodating with scheduling. Very knowledgeable as well. I would highly recommend Adrienne to anyone!

Adrienne is exactly what I needed. God sent her to me, there is no other way around it. She has been a safe place for me to take things to someone that I have never been able to take anywhere else. She listens and responds with intentionality, she always makes sure that what she is saying is what needs to be heard. The conversation is always about you, and she is extremely kind and gentle.

Adrienne is phenomenal! We clicked on the first meeting and she’s been extremely supportive and understanding since. She really takes her time to listen and understand you personally. I feel seen by her and that by itself makes a significant impact in my mental health

Adrienne is very kind and a great listener. I feel like from the first session that she cared about me and genuinely wanted to help me. I wasn't sure what to expect but Adrienne has been a great help over the past couple weeks and it feels great to feel like someone not only wants to help but also is unbiased and not judging me.

D.A.·Oct 26, 2020
