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.

Sherry is so perfect for me. She understands where I am, and helps me understand ways to address various situations and to be aware of my feelings. She has helped me get through a very tumultuous year, and I am forever grateful to her.

I have been seeing Sherie for close to 2 1/2 years now and she has truly helped me in many aspects of life.. The times that we talk I am able to reevaluate my negative thinking process. She is truly a life saver when I am having anxious episodes.

Sherie is a kind, compassionate therapist who listens and understands my problems. She always has some insight and suggestions that I find to be very helpful in dealing with my anxiety and panic disorders. I am so glad that I found her on Better Help and would recommend her to anyone who is seeking therapy for anxiety/panic or depression.

Sherie is a wonderful, empathetic therapist who also has a lot of insight. She has a way of listening and making observations that get past what you think you are saying to what you are really feeling.

I’ve only had a couple of sessions with Dr. Sherie and I’m loving it! I had never been to therapy before and from our first session she made me feel understood & safe. Dr. Sherie was recommended to me by a friend and now I can see why. She’s wonderful! I’m truly grateful to have her as my therapist.

Sherie is professional, understanding and helping me to see that I need to make changes in my life that will help me move forward. She is patient, kind and experienced in her field.

I’ve been talking with Sherie for a while now and from the beginning she has always been so patient. Even when I have a lot to unpack, we take it slow and work through it all at whatever pace I’m comfortable. At first, it just felt like I was venting, but over time I noticed the things she would tell me were popping up into the back of my head in between sessions. I’ve really started to see a big difference in myself & my mindset!

C.A.·May 04, 2021


I feel heard, understood and acknowledged. Sheri lets me steer the session while simultaneously inquiring about my thought process or suggesting a different way to perceive a challenging personal interaction or a situation I’m feeling upset about. Her style really works for me.

Sherie is professional, supportive and understanding. I never feel rushed or pressured and am able to express myself comfortably. She provides advice and tools to help me in between sessions.

Sherie is an amazing therapist. I've had recurring depression and anxiety since I was young, with numerous attempts at seeing therapists for help. Due to switching insurance or not feeling like I was getting much out of my sessions, I was never able to stick to therapy. Sherie has been my therapist for ~9 months. I come out of every single session with something new to reflect on, a new perspective or awareness of something I did not notice before; I feel more positive and capable of handling tough things in life than ever. It always feels like she cares, without any judgment. Her "About Me" summary describes her perfectly! I am so grateful to her and truly impressed. I am also so grateful for the option of online therapy and that I gave it a chance.
