About me

Hello and Welcome to BetterHelp! I am so glad you've taken this step to seek out support for whatever you are going through. My name is Karla Burgess. I am a licensed independent mental health practitioner (LIMHP) in the great state of Nebraska. My 19 years of experience have taken place in either a hospital setting or in my private practice in a rural community. Being the only mental health practitioner in my area has given me experience with a wide range of mental health concerns such as anxiety/depression, behavioral concerns, parenting, relationship issues, and grief. My experience as a school counselor also makes me very comfortable working with kids, teens, and adults.
My treatment approach includes creating a strong relationship with the person that I work with. I'm trained in many theories of counseling but typically use ideas and techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and a Client-Centered approach. I definitely believe in goal-directed work and make sure that the steps we are taking together are getting you closer to your counseling goals. Former and current clients describe me as kind, compassionate, caring, supportive, and empathetic. Creating a genuine connection with my clients is key to our success. I consider this opportunity to insert myself into your life a privilege and a huge responsibility. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you through whatever is hindering your growth and happiness.

I look forward to our sessions each week. She is a very good match for me and is easy to talk to. She listens, is compassionate and gives me ideas on how to approach a difficult situation. A bright spot in my week!

Karla is wonderful!! She listens to me thoroughly & helps me to fix the problems that I am having in my life that I need help with.

I've only had a few sessions with Karla but; She's a great listener, offers amazing input, and really makes me looks inside myself. After each session I've had with her I've just felt lighter. I always look forward to our next session; she's like talking to friend.
