Hello and welcome to my profile. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with the state of Missouri. I have over 15 years of experience working as a psychotherapist, life coach, hypnotherapist, Equine Facilitated Psychotherapist, Spiritual Director and inner child work. I have experience working with clients with a wide range of concerns including, but not limited to; depression, anxiety, relationship issues, addictions, PTSD, trauma, and physical, sexual and emotional abuse, eating disorders and substance abuse. In addition to my formal education, I have over a decade in study and practice with meditation, mindfulness and spiritual direction.
My counseling style is non-judgmental and accepting. One of my greatest gifts to you as a therapist is deep listening. I promise you will feel safe and comfortable to explore the issues and concerns that you are currently facing. My counseling approach combines many modalities which include: Transpersonal and Humanistic theories with Inner Child work, Mindfulness/Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Neuro Linguistic Programming, Internal Family Systems and Hypnosis . I like to ask lots of questions as I am always pointing you back to yourself and what will inspire growth and awareness from within. Because your situation is unique to you, I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs . I am here to listen to you and your story; to support you through whatever it is that you are going through right now. You are not alone.
It takes courage and determination to seek a more fulfilling and happier life. If not now, when? If you are ready to take that first step, I am here to walk alongside you, to support you and empower you. I look forward to meeting you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Karen Will. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Karen is amazing. She is calming, wise and intuitive. She has a way of simmering down life to the important things.
I came to therapy 5 months ago when going through a turbulent time in my life. Working with Karen has helped improve my self-esteem , my communication skills and has improved my understanding of myself and others around me. I now feel happier and more confident to navigate my way though lifes ups and downs. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone who wants to change and improve their life.
Although I had been interested in pursuing help from a counselor for the past couple of months, I was hesitant to start that journey because I had a poor experience with counseling in the past. However, deciding to work with Karen has been the best experience I have ever had in regard to my mental health. In just a few sessions with Karen, I have noticed drastic improvements to my emotional stability and general thought patterns. Not only is Karen friendly and professional, but she has also made me feel heard in a way that I never imagined I could be heard. Karen truly listens to the things I say as well as pointing out the things that I don't even have to voice. I now look forward to my counseling experience each time, and I am excited for the progress that I have made and will continue to make over time. Karen is a true professional and I encourage anyone who is on the fence about counseling to give Better Help a try--and if you're lucky enough--to work with Karen Will. :)
Karen is brilliant and I very helpful.
Karen Will is highly intelligent, respectful, caring, kind and supportive. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with her and have always appreciated her responses to my questions, concerns, thoughts and feelings. Thanks for being so wonderful Karen!
Karen has been great. She's offered kind understanding and a reality check without judgement. She's super responsive and she's gentle while still managing to prod me forward. So glad to be paired with her!
Karen has helped me change the way I perceive things, which reduced the stress and pressure I felt for a long time. She not only understands and provides a new look to things, but gives advice and tips that will help me last a lifetime.
Signing up to BetterHelp was the smartest and most rewarding thing I have done in my life, and having Karen walk me through my issues is definitely not short of that either. She is a blessing! She truly helped me in such a limited time, only 3 months! She is incredibly patient, and kind and not in the least judgmental. She keeps in touch with you, she wants to make sure you’re doing well and is incredibly supportive. I have had my fair share of therapists and Karen is by far one of the most caring and calming presence I have interacted with. Thank you for all you have done for me!
I am very pleased with her and lucky to have found the right counselor for me.
I really think she is going to help me through this.
My counseling sessions with Karen have helped me in my personal and professional life. Many of the situations I struggle with personally have carried over into work and I wasn’t really aware of that until I started to review my patterns of responses in relationships. Karen is informal and I feel like I can express myself honestly with her. She offers approaches to situations that are helpful and realistic. I feel like she gets me and I appreciate that!
Karen has been exceptionally kind and has offered some very sensible advice. She had reached out to me more than once when I was struggling to reach out myself, and I really appreciate this.
Karen has really helped me since I started with Betterhelp. She listens to my concerns, understands them and offers no judgment. She directs me where needed and at other times just lets me vent. The difference it has made in only a few weeks has been amazing.
I tried for years to get better on my own, but I never knew where I needed to be putting my energy. Thanks to Karen, I've grown more in the past 2 months than in the 7 years prior.
Karen has been an exceptional counselor, when I first started talking to Karen I was depressed and grieving the loss of my mom. Karen has really helped me, I really appreciate the time with her.
Karen is extremely respectful and caring. She always listens to my concerns, she is very keen to pick up on things I am not aware about and I appreciate her feedback and mentality.
Karen is great. She is completely understanding and receptive. Copious amounts of valuable knowledge and advice.
After two weeks, this has already been very helpful and beneficial. Karen's quick responses and specific feedback make me feel like I've got somebody in my corner. She asks great questions of me and gives doable tasks.
Karen has helped me challenge some long-held beliefs - stories I had been telling myself about my life’s experiences. Stories that had kept me stuck for decades. With her help, I’ve cleared the path and began to move forward with greater compassion for myself. I’m grateful to her for allowing me to see my lifelong experiences in a much more useful way and cannot recommend her highly enough!
Karen is great and even though my journey with her has just begun, I am already experiencing great progress.
Karen is very good to me because she always strives to make sure I'm getting what I want out of the therapy. She always asks me what my main concerns and goals are and she's very understanding when a particular method doesn't work for me. She is also very patient and makes me feel like I'm being heard when I feel stranded in my thoughts.
Karen is a great listener and she really tries to understand my problems and gives me good advice on how to fix them for myself. She gives excellent self help tips and worksheets and I'd like to thank her for her patience, kindness and understanding through all of my difficulties.
I feel extremely fortunate to have been matched with Karen as my therapist.
I have been to see a few therapists over the last 25 years and she is by far the best therapist I have had.
I love the fact that she doesn't just listen, but also always provides very valuable feedback.
She has a lovely way about her and seems to have an extensive background on various psychological approaches.
I have recommended her and this app to a few friends of mine.
It has helped me tremendously and I can see the improvements almost on a weekly basis.
Truly grateful to have her in my life, helping me to learn to love myself each day a little more and making life that bit more easier to navigate.
Karen is amazing. I am am so appreciative of her expertise and compassion. She has truly helped me more than I anticipated when going into counseling. I recommend her highly.
Karen helped me see a lot of positives within myself when I didn't before. She is so understanding and I felt like I could really talk to her and share things without being judged. She always responded so quickly to my thoughts and questions, giving me so much to think about and tools to help myself. Being listened to and understood helped so much, and I am so thankful to have Karen as my counsellor.
Karen is extremely helpful and insightful. Always asking the right questions and listening to understand.
Karen has been such an amazing help in my life. I came to her unsure and broken emotionally and she’s kindly but firmly (sometimes you need some real talk) lead me back to having confidence and feeling full of life. Our time together has been amazing. Not only would I recommend her, I HAVE recommended BetterHelp and Karen on my public social media pages.
I'm really enjoying working with Karen. She is challenging me to dig deep for answers and learn about what is going on and how best to deal with everything.
Her support is invaluable and I would not hesitate to encourage others to work with her.
Karen is an angel. She’s been extremely helpful, supportive and encouraging! She listens, she cares, and she’s always there for me. I’ve seen a big change in myself with her help. I’m feeling happier and stronger. I can’t say thank you enough.
Love it. Customer service is great too. Love my counselor!
I am enjoying being able to use the service of BetterHelp. Karen has been very helpful and I am feeling more comfortable about talking about less comfortable things.
I've only worked with Karen for a few weeks due to some breakup issue and grief I was having. She was extremely responsive and always made herself available. We sometimes exchanged messages multiple times a day. We also had a video conference which was very helpful, too. I really liked that she listened very carefully and always tried to understand my concerns and fears before suggesting anything. I liked working with Karen and I can only recommend her to anyone who's going through a tough time right now.
Karen Will is helping me see myself in a more positive manner. She gets me thinking and helps me see things from different perspectives. She is also very supportive and understanding. Thank you for helping me!
I've been working with Karen for about a month and already feel that I've benefitted a lot from her counselling expertise. She listens without judgement and offers a kind of 'advice' that is more about encouraging me to explore my thoughts and patterns. I have been looking for ways to improve my sense of mindfulness, and working with Karen, I feel I'm well on my way to achieving this goal.
Karen is very professional in her approach and is fantastic at making you feel comfortable to open up. She is very relatable and is able to relay her advise on a matter directly and with an understanding. I highly recommend her services to anyone needing someone to talk too and seeking professional advice.
Karen will is an angel sent to people In need of help- she make you feel easy and be on the same page as yours: very patient and knowledgeable, she respects and guides you through your issues no matter what. I thought my issues were tough and no one can understand me but here she heals everyone who gets in touch with her. Cannot recommend her enough
Thank you, Karen Will!
Karen has done a wonderful job. She is a great listener and is a great counselor. Karen is really helping me get to the root of my issues. I always recommend BetterHelp to those that need it.
Karen takes her time to address concerns and gets back quickly when you reach out. She is open to a variety of treatments of varying backgrounds, aiming for solutions that fit for your specific needs.
Karen is wonderful! She is super easy to talk to and she really listens. She won't judge you if you say something a little out of the box and she really seems to know what she is doing.
Karen is truly amazing at what she does. I feel her work with me is concise and straight to the point so I dont feel overwhelmed or confused during our sessions. I am learning so much from her and making progress.
