Kari is a great therapist. She responds to me quickly and I feel like she really understands and/or can empathize with what I am going through. She provides me with honest and helpful feedback. I look forward to her responses knowing that I will have the support I need waiting for me in her reply. I would highly recommend Kari to anyone who is in need of a support and caring therapist.
Kari Morales is the only therapist that actually listens not just hears what I have to say. That in itself is helping me to get to where I want/need to get to.
Kari is very kind and insightful. She does a very good job in responding to my messages and does so in a very thoughtful manner.
Kari is a great listener and very perseptive. In my mind, my thoughts are pretty confused and jumbled, but Kari is able to pin point specifics and help to make sense out of them.
Kari and I are still getting to know each others styles so far it seems like she is very knowledgeable and understanding.
Confidently she is an amazing listener
Best counselor ever
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!
Kari is kind and compassionate, she has a deep level of understanding and is so supportive.
She is an amazing person. She’s very supportive and respectful. She’s always on your side and things always try your ways.
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.
Amazing and so supportive!
Kari is amazing and always makes me feel comfortable and listened to!
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 !
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 awesome. She is a great counselor, listens attentively, is very responsive, and has a great approach. Highly recommend.
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!
