About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Pennsylvania with over 15 years of experience in the mental health field. I have worked with clients to address numerous issues, including anxiety, depression, autism, life coaching, relationship issues and parenting challenges. I have also worked, briefly, with substance addiction.

I am proud that you have taken the first step to making positive changes and seeking the support you need. Together, we can work to achieve your goals.

I look forward to working with you!

Kari Morales is a wonderful therapist. I can message any time and she responds in a timely manner. I feel like I am talking to a friend more than a therapist. It makes it easier to open up and she really listens. Her insight is always helpful and I have great confidence in her.

I have a really hard time opening up to people and Kari has really made me feel so comfortable. I’m always nervous while I wait for her response wondering if it will be to hard to hear or I’ll feel judged. When I do see her responses , I feel like she’s not out to get me and she really wants to help. It’s always a response that I can understand and it helps me through my process. Even if I repeat things, she just try’s a different way to clarify the issue I have. I am so grateful for the help I’m getting and I would recommend her to anyone I know!

She's really helped me get a better sense of who I am and helped me with my anxiety

Kari is super kind and understanding! She is easy to work with and not pushy about anything. She provides useful insight and multiple options to deal with different things

Kari is a great listener and offers constructive solutions. I really appreciate her input. I highly recommend her!

So far all of the responses from Kari are both warm, but also presented in a way that I can tell she's actually read what I wrote and is listening. I appreciate her tone (which isn't easy to present in the online setting) but I can feel the care and desire to help in her tone. She's very inviting and I feel comfortable sharing with her. Even though I didn't respond for a while, she was able to understand where I'm coming from and pick right back up.

Overall, I'm very thankful I was placed with her.

While we have not spoken yet (I actually prefer messaging more) Kari is helping me get beyond the top level issue and focus on underlying issues.

I really enjoy talking to her and she helps (makes) me look more inward than outward.

Kari is amazing and always makes me feel comfortable and listened to!

Written by M.A. on Mar 02, 2021 after counseling with Kari for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and bipolar disorder

Kari is very caring for sure ! She focuses on what you are wanting to discuss and gives you a lot of outside feedback ! First time talking to a professional and I cannot be more grateful I landed with Kari ! Zeros in on exactly what I’m trying to figure out about myself and knows what to say and when !

Written by C.O. on Feb 05, 2021 after counseling with Kari for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, career difficulties, coaching, and adhd

Kari has been phenomenal in understanding my needs. First and foremost, she has been super available. I can't stress enough how that alone was a huge help initially. I was struggling so much with constantly being overwhelmed with many things, and trying to get help, and she made it easy. Second, she gave me some gentle reminders about tools I can use in the meantime, which helped. She also checks in from time to time to just make sure everything is ok, which to me is going above and beyond. Kari has been a lifesaver and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Kari is an excellent and empathetic counselor who offers both a safe and open space for processing and practical, actions based solutions and takeaways. She has a very comforting presence and is an outstanding support.

I was assigned to Kari Morales and in just our first few sessions and messages I felt (and feel) so supported. Not only does Kari respond in a timely manner, but she also does her best to give me guidance/prompts to help me better understand myself and my feelings each time I message her. Knowing that I can leave a message for her when I remember an event or a feeling and she will respond as soon as she can is exactly what I needed. Thank you, Kari!
