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.

Deboraha Johnson was extremely helpful in assisting me with my relationship issues. I've never felt judged by her and I loved that she provided actionable steps for me to follow as I pursue new romantic relationships. Thank you Deboraha!

I have been in therapy with Deborah for a little over two months now and I can confidently say that it has had a significant impact on my overall mental health and wellbeing. She is a great listener, and challenges me in a healthy way. She asks the important questions and respects my thoughts and decisions. This is my first therapy experience and I am very grateful that it happened to be with Deborah.

She is an understanding person, warm and caring. She made me feel comfortable talking about the issues I am having and guiding me to approach that issues with my own capabilities. Assisting me establishing healthy boundaries between parents, myself and spouse. Great therapist!

Overall

Deboraha Johnson is an active listener, and accurately reflects back to me all the details & nuances of the issues I have brought to her in therapy. Meanwhile, she helps me keep in focus the big picture of my goals for this stage of my life. Her observations and advice are well thought out, based on extensive experience with therapy and with life, and given to me in an objective and compassionate way. Thank you Deboraha! And, I have already recommended Better Help to several people a) reasonable cost b) very convenient - video or phone or text c) ability to ask for another therapist if the chemistry or the match is not right for you d) reminders to write in Journal--VERY helpful e) reliable, timely service Thanks for this!

I've had therapy in the past and whilst it wasn't bad, it was never as great as with Deboraha. She provided you with feedback, doesn't just ask you questions but has actual conversations with you that lead you to think and question your thoughts. She is an intelligent woman with lots of experience and in depth knowledge in the field of therapy. Anyone who gets to work with her should consider themselves lucky.

Deboraha is a great therapist and my first experience with her was so profound and relaxing. I enjoyed talking to her and her hearing out my concerns and troubles. I am looking forward to working with her more.

Overall

Deboraha was my first experience with a licensed therapist, and she made this experience very positive for me. I felt heard and respected, and it did not take me long to feel that I could trust her with my problems. The past three months she has helped me figure out my emotions, given me tips on how to improve my relationship from within myself, and been there to guide me along the path of finding more of my true self. I am grateful to have had her by my side.

Professional, easy to communicate with and keeps me on track. I always feel well listened to and that I am making progress.

C.R.·Apr 14, 2022

Overall

Although I have only had two video sessions with Deboraha so far, I feel I have gotten so much more out of these two sessions with her than I have with any other therapist in my past. I feel comfortable sharing exactly how I am doing without sugar-coating and I feel very confident in the advice she is giving me. She responds to my messages very quickly and even sends me messages when she doesn't hear from me for a bit to check-in and to see how I am doing and remind me to write in my journal. She is patient, kind, excellent at listening to everything I have to say and then taking from it the deeper message/what I am really feeling. I am so glad I started Betterhelp and was matched with Deboraha.
