Welcome to Better Help. I hope together we can work to improve your life!
My name is Caryn Kelley. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with many years of experience in different settings. I have a Masters of Social Work from Arizona State University and have been certified as a LCSW since 1988. In my practice I have seen clients struggling with self-esteem issues, family conflict, depression, anxiety, bipolar, addiction and multiple medical issues. My approach utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Techniques, Client Centered, Empathetic Listening, Motivational Interviewing and Supportive allow my client's the space to explore life issues, gain much needed clarity and foster confidence to make changes. Our time together will be a safe place to vent, allow yourself to experience true emotions and gain insight and ability to trust your own thoughts, decisions and plans.
My counseling style will include time to get to know you, hear about your strengths and struggles, things that make you happy and areas that upset you. Then with a warm, caring style, we will further explore your challenges and concerns, perhaps offering a new viewpoint or path for you to follow to make changes. Sometimes having a kind, supportive person in your corner will be enough, other times some motivational conversation will be the flash point for change. I believe you have the inner strength in you, and with a positive, therapeutic relationship, can feel better.
I am looking forward to working with you to support you in taking the first steps toward a happier, more fulfilling life.

Caryn is a thoughtful and nurturing counselor. She is easy to talk to and makes herself available for her clients when she is needed. I would highly recommend her!
Caryn is great to work with. She understands my issues, gives me great advice and is kind and supportive!
After 2 sessions with Caryn, I already feel like she understands my situation better than other past counselors. Caryn is empathetic and adaptive. I know this because, for me, she can be more chat-friendly. Personally, it is hard to monologue about myself but she asks me questions and is engaged in a way that is really helpful. Caryn will never overstep in a way where it comes off like she knows better about my situation. She clarifies and asks if I'd like to talk about certain things more and responds like a normal, supportive human. It is obvious she cares and is rooting for her clients.
Caryn was great and extremely caring and helpful. Would highly recommend Caryn for counseling.
I saw Caryn for few short weeks for counseling, and I was happy to say she was very responsive, warm, and compassionate towards my issues I was dealing with in my family and my mental health. Caryn was understanding and was very encouraging and uplifting when I discussed difficulties in areas of my life. My overall depressed mood improved the last few weeks, which gave me the confidence to be more positive and uplifting in my own life.
Caryn is a great listener and asks questions to help understand the situation. She is careful not to offer suggestions until she fully understands what’s going on first. Caryn personalizes the conversation to help find positive connections between Client and Counselor.
