About Me

Welcome! I am a Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner and Provisional Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor with 10 years of experience providing individual, group, and family therapy. My goal is to help my clients address their emotional and psychological concerns. Some of the areas that I am experienced with include depression, anxiety, stress, and severe and persistent mental illness. I also have experience in the areas of drug and alcohol addiction and trauma. I have worked with a wide range of populations in my career as a mental health professional. This ranges from adults with severe mental illness in a community setting, to teens and adolescents in a residential treatment center. I have also worked with teens and adults struggling with substance use and addiction in residential and outpatient settings.

I believe that therapy is a collaborative process and my role is to help you find the tools to reach your goals! My style of counseling focuses on emphasizing a person's strengths in order to develop achievable goals. I believe that using motivational interviewing and encouragement are important techniques to help a person reach their full potential. My personal therapy techniques are centered around Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy.

I’ve had a wonderful experience working with Karlee. She is very patient, and helps me unpack and navigate the issues bothering me in a caring and understanding manner. Despite our time zone differences, I don’t have to wait long until she responds to my messages and we have no problems setting up live calls/chats.

Written by B.R. on Nov 13, 2019 after counseling with Karlee for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and anger management

I only recently started up with the counseling so I will see how it goes when we have our first appointment but I have been nothing but pleased so far. I have told her what my problems are and what I need help with, we just have not sat down and had an appointment yet due to me being busy. She seems very attentive, sending me worksheets to do and replying extremely fast when I complete a worksheet or when I just simply need advice.

Written by M.O. on Oct 08, 2019 after counseling with Karlee for 6 months on issues concerning depression, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

I am glad Karlee exists, and I am even more glad that I kept up therapy instead of giving up on the process. She doesn't waste time as her comments and skillful redirection show she was definitely listening. She has patiently listened and respectfully helped untangle a lot of problems. She doesn't impose or push, yet the intelligent, measured influence improves my pattern of thinking. You can tell she is not just an educated person but a person of understanding/discernment/reflection as well.
