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 started therapy a few months ago and I wish I had started it a lot sooner. It's affordable, it's convenient, and it really does help. At first I was wary about talking to someone about my problems and all the personal things in my life. Nathan was very welcoming and kind and he's helped me through some really low times. He checks up on me when he is able, he's taught me techniques to cope with my depression and anxiety, he will take the time to read my really long journal entries and we'll talk about it until I feel a resolve. Because of Nathan and Betterhelp I feel safe to open up about my feelings which is something that I feel many people are afraid to do, I certainly was. I am very grateful that I found Betterhelp and I'm glad that I have a therapist who's in my corner and who genuinely cares about me and my well being. Thank you Nathan!

Nathan is truly a universal blessing. I am so grateful to have been connected with such a wise, compassionate, attentive, concerned, funny therapist. I appreciate how he sees and understands the world. I feel safe, heard, and respected with his care. I already feel like I am growing and attaining the tools I need to proceed through life with a smile on my face. A million out of ten I would recommend.

Nathan is compassionate and incredibly knowledgeable. He takes his time to really understand and helps me with coping skills and has shown me different prospectives I didn't even think about. Been in therapy for years and never explored this kind of trauma therapy. In short, he's amazing.

Best of the best!!!!!!!!!! I love him . I have never had a better therapist and I’ve been trying for 20 years

Nov 07, 2022


My experience with Nathan has been nothing but positive and beneficial to my healing and personal growth. Nathan always takes the time to reach out to me between our sessions and is willing to provide guidance whenever necessary. I look forward to my weekly sessions with Nathan.

Nathan is more than my therapist he is always there for me. He is my champion.

Nov 02, 2022


Nathan has been my therapist for almost one and a half years now. I had never done therapy before and was nervous. Nathan managed to make me feel comfortable and was really easy to trust right from the beginning. He gave me time to really warm up to him before we addressed the deeper and more personal issues though. He is openminded, always respectful and never judgmental and therefore was able to make these sessions a safe space for me. He also has a huge knowledge and a lot of experience. He provided me with transformative input, challenging but necessary questions to reflect upon, new perspectives and a lot of resources to deal with e.g. anxiety. Nathan has been able to help me with anxiety and panic attacks, end a toxic and traumatic relationship and heal from it, deal with occupational trauma(as a surgical resident), change family relationships and engage actively in self care. I continue to benefit from our sessions every week by tackling problems as they come up in the present. I cannot thank him enough for all his help!

Nathan is an incredible therapist. Always actively listening, positive and encouraging, he also is direct and challenging when needed. I've worked with several therapists before, and I am making the most meaningful change with Nathan.

Nathan is easy to talk to. He listens and guides you so that you are able to find the tools within yourself so that you achieve your goals. Thanks to Nathan, I gained a better understanding of myself and my environment. I’m truly grateful for his help, his support, and his positive energy.

Always good listener and has good advice

Back in January, after a tough break up. I became hopeless and helpless. The pain was unbearable and I felt like the whole world was caving in on me. Few weeks of therapy with Nathan has helped me identify my strength and weakness. I've worked on it and continue to work on it everyday. I'm proud to say that I am becoming a better version of me under Nathan's guidance and coaching. I'm extremely impressed with the service.

Aug 25, 2022


What can I say about Nathan. He is wonderful to talk with and understanding. We really clicked during the last year and my self-confidence, self-worth, relationship with my family and spouse is so much better. It takes work, but if you put in the effort with Nathan, he will provide you tools or ideas to help you learn the skills and confidence you didn't know you had in you. Thank you so much Nathan. It has been a true pleasure doing therapy with your guidance.

Nathan is fantastic. There are not enough great things I can say about him. He is wonderful in sharing wisdom and guidance without judgement and my life has improved significantly with his care.

Nathan is great. Best therapist ever.

J.O.·Jul 17, 2022


Working with Nathan Aish has allowed me to truly tap into the root of my behavior and my u resolved childhood trauma. I have been able to learn new skills to live a more fulfilling and happier life. I’m very grateful to have been connected with Nathan. Thank you!

E.F.·Jul 15, 2022


Nathan is the absolute best. Truly I have never had a better or more loyal therapist in my life

B.R.·Jun 30, 2022


My experience with Nathan has been great. He has been real with me, he has set realistic expectations from the start, he is easy to trust, and he genuinely seems to enjoy what he’s doing. Working with him has helped me create immediate improvements in my life with simple techniques that are easy to sneak into day-to-day life.

S.A.·Jun 22, 2022


I’m beyond happy working with Nathan. I’ve had other therapist (who have been incredible in their own way) and none have been able to put into words the way I’m feeling when I’m trying to explain how I’m feeling or what I’m going through. Nathan seems to get it and it really empowers me knowing I’m not alone and knowing I’m working with someone who understands.

L.E.·Jun 13, 2022


BH is my 1st experience using a therapist ever and Nathan has been wonderful to work with. He is non-judgmental, is empathetic and authentic in his communications. He shares the appropriate tools with grace and compassion. I am very grateful for Nathan and he gives me hope for humanity. I highly recommend Nathan for therapy.

E.M.·Apr 20, 2022


Nathan was very professional when needed and very down to earth when needed as well. I think that's very important in a counselor/therapist. No one wants to talk to a robot or someone that is very unprofessional. Anyway, I would recommend Nathan's services to any of my friends and family.

T.H.·Apr 18, 2022


Nathan is a very down to earth individual who immediately made me feel comfortable and has been a massive help in turning my mental health around. I would confidently recommend him to anyone looking for therapy.

M.A.·Apr 01, 2022


Nathan is great: not only is he an outstanding advocate for polyamory, but he is also extremely insightful about relationships and perceptive!

R.A.·Mar 18, 2022


Nathan is the most responsive and action oriented therapist I have ever worked with. There is no other therapist I trust more.

P.E.·Mar 11, 2022


Going in to therapy and joining better help I never anticipated finding someone like Nathan. I have tried therapy before and never felt like it fit me. Nathan has been one of the best things to ever happen to me. I was in one of the lowest spots in my life when I started with him and he has helped me every step of the way and celebrated all my wins. His flexibility and positive energy have made this over all experience amazing. I could not imagine a better therapist.

Z.A.·Feb 17, 2022


Nathan is an incredibly experienced, skillful, and compassionate and s therapist. He has helped me navigate through breakups, explore polyamory and my sexuality, come into my own as a creative and as an individual, and inspired me to develop my own roots. I genuinely look forward to our sessions doing work together. He makes me feel seen, held, validated, and encouraged to be better. He consistently reaches out outside of sessions and has taken time to schedule extra sessions with me in an emergency. Nathan is the most selfless person I have ever met. He is a gift and I am truly so grateful to know him. I love who I am becoming with his guidance.

P.I.·Feb 10, 2022


Nathan is great. Involved, committed and caring.

J.O.·Jan 14, 2022


Working with Nathan has been an incredible experience. I believe he has changed my life for the better in a short space of time. His experience and knowledge is phenomenal, our sessions are always fascinating discussions and I take away so much from them. His support over the last few months have been amazing and I feel better prepared to take on new challenges in life due to his excellent coaching. I would 100% recommend Nathan to anyone interested in working with a therapist.

G.E.·Dec 30, 2021


He’s incredible. He helped me to look at my life from new lenses, which is what I needed.

B.R.·Dec 29, 2021


Nathan has been a great help to me in so many ways. He helped me navigate self esteem issues, anxiety, depression, work trauma, and starting a new relationship. He was willing to divulge some of his shared experiences as well as expertise. I’m very grateful for him and all the work he has put in to make me do better in my day to day life.

J.O.·Dec 16, 2021


Nathan was always very helpful and supportive! The tools he provided me have helped with my anxiety, and he was always there to help when I needed extra support or reminders. I always felt better after speaking with him. Very grateful!

K.A.·Dec 06, 2021


Nathan combines expertise in polyamory with excellent communication skills, pyschological insight, and compassion. He is very good at listening, identifying areas for improvement, and providing constructive tailored exercises to improve. Nathan also checks in regularly. I wish that I could send all new poylamorous/non-monogamous people to Nathan!

R.A.·Nov 10, 2021


Nathan has been wonderful and so knowledgeable. Overall it has been an excellent experience. Nathan is friendly and creates such a comfortable environment. His way of listening is both kind and caring. The scheduling experience was great, too. To Nathan: thanks for always going the extra mile. You are professional, helpful and yet careful. You love what you do, and it shows. To future patients: If you are matched with Nathan, you are in great hands. I highly recommend him. He helped me figure out things that I never knew about myself, that helped me to grow.

I’ve only seen Nathan for a few sessions but I already feel really confident in what we will do together. He is very kind, caring, understanding, and knowledgeable. I feel comfortable with him and excited about my journey and all that is to come from working with him.
