They are licensed, trained, experienced and accredited psychologists (PhD/PsyD), marriage and family therapists (MFT), clinical social workers (LCSW), licensed professional counselors (LPC), or similar credentials.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
You and your counselor will get your own secure “room”. This will be your private place to communicate day or night. You can access this room from any internet connected device, wherever you are.
You can write about yourself, the things going on in your life, ask questions and discuss the challenges you’re facing. Your counselor will login to the same room and respond with feedback, insights and guidance. This ongoing one-on-one dialogue is the foundation of your work with your counselor.
Together you’ll work towards making a positive change in your life, accomplishing your goals and overcoming your problems.
HOW MANY SESSIONS CAN I HAVE?
You aren’t limited to a certain number of messages (“sessions”). The frequency of your sessions depends on your availability and the interaction between you and your counselor. You may prefer to have 3-4 short interactions per week, or 1 very long and thorough session. You can use the service as much or as little as you like, depending on your needs. Your therapist will work to accommodate your changing needs in a timely manner.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Many people avoid getting professional help because it can become extremely expensive. We want to make BetterHelp easy and accessible to everyone, so we've created a plan which is simple, predictable, risk-free, and affordable.
Plans range from as low as $40 per week. With any plan you choose, you will pay a fraction of the cost of traditional counseling.
If you accomplished your goals or if you found it to be no longer helpful for any reason, you can simply cancel the subscription. Canceling is easy and done online - there are no hoops to jump through.

Accidentally Gave Bad Review to Counselor
I think I accidentally gave a “Not Useful” review after a live chat with my counselor. How I do change that review?
