I am Coral Haynes, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, licensed in Kentucky, with 29 years of professional experience in the mental health and wellness field. This means over the years, I have gained a wide variety of experience - but I do not claim to be an expert in everything!
I have a special interest in empowering women. (Just to clarify - this is not an anti-male approach!) It has been my experience that women are often so focused on relationships, that they neglect their own desires and needs. So my focus is helping women figure out who they are, what they want, and how they can continue to nurture their relationships, while also building a life that is genuine and personally satisfying.
I also have significant experience working with men, who often seek help to improve relationship skills, deal with career issues or changes, or to learn to better deal with - and communicate about - their emotions.
(All kinds of) Relationships are complicated - and messy! This is another area that I have experience in - with a focus on communication skills, seeing things from each other's perspectives, and finding ways to love each other better.
In addition, I really enjoy helping people with:
Personal growth and wellness
Executive and Professional coaching
Self esteem /Confidence
Coping with life changes
Stress and Anxiety
I also have experience with a variety of other clinical diagnoses and populations that I don't currently serve, but which helps round out my overall understanding of people and of the field of mental health.
My counseling techniques are tailored to each individual client and their particular issue(s), as well as their personality and communication style.
My goal is to meet each client where they are and help them gain the life tools they need to move forward in a positive and lasting way.
Some therapeutic models I often utilize are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Therapy, Reality Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy. For more information on these models, please just ask. I am happy to provide additional information.
I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. I look forward to partnering with you!
*Please note that I currently only have weekday, daytime availability. If you need evening or weekend time slots, you may want to try a different therapist that can better accommodate you.
**Also, please note that since I also have in-person appointments for my private practice that can not be blocked out on my BetterHelp Calendar, I am unable to show many open time slots without fear of double booking. Therefore, the BetterHelp calendar is NOT an accurate portrayal of my availability.
Please reach out to me to schedule appointments, so that I can better prevent double booking.
Thanks and I look forward to working with you!

I am so grateful that I have Coral as a therapist. This has helped me to change my life. Coral has helped me with my job, my family dynamics, parenting and my self esteem. The best part is it feels like talking to a friend. Coral has given me some things to try like reading a book with my spouse, tips to try to reduce stress, strategies to help process how I am feeling and more. This is the best money I have spent on myself ever. I would 100% recommend Coral.

Coral helped me through a very stressful time balancing work, relationships, and school. She was very supportive and always easy to talk to. She always ensured she was understanding my issue in order to better help me move forward.
