I really appreciated Karen’s clear perspectives on issues that were harder for me to make sense of on my own. Karen’s input helped me feel more balanced and gave me some tangible insights into hard issues I was faced with. Karen is straightforward and experienced, and I very much valued her perspectives!

I found Karen Kelly while reaching out to Betterhelp for support to help get through the process of separation from my spouse. Karen has been great in terms of listening and providing a helpful perspective on my situation. She also had some great practical advice and insights that I found useful. I highly recommend Karen for her thoughtful and professional care as a therapist.
