About me

Hi! My name is Karlee, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been practicing counseling for over seven years and came to BetterHelp with the hope of extending the power and benefit of counseling to others.

I came to counseling with a strong passion to help others and be part of the solution for so many of the barriers we face in our lives. I hold a master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from California University of Pennsylvania. After school, I entered the addictions field where I worked with adults and adolescents through the full spectrum of substance use issues, including coping with family substance use. As I transitioned to working as a grief counselor, I came to find that my work with others remained similar: I was helping people to navigate change and restore a sense of control and peace in their lives. Recognizing this connection, and the impact that change, in all its forms, has in our lives, has become the foundation of my career.

I work through change with others with the use of a person-centered approach that relies heavily on empathy, trust, and honesty. I truly believe that each person can come to know their healthiest self through a trusting therapeutic relationship. I often utilize cognitive-behavioral interventions, as well as motivational interviewing. I will encourage and support you to come to know your own thoughts, feelings, and beliefs in order for you to find the solutions that will work best for you. I believe in a holistic approach that takes into account the many parts and perspectives of a complex and beautiful life, including our emotional, physical, and social health.

I am open to answering further questions that you may have about my experience and approaches. Whether with me, or another clinician, I hope you can come to find exactly what you are looking for and deserve.

Karlee is an incredible, compassionate and intelligent professional. Even though English was not my first language, Karlee helped me to express myself and made me understand my anxieties and fears. She helped me find a healing path by guiding me on my own ideas, she is extremely supportive and receiving her feedback was also and is being very important for understanding myself and my behavior with myself and with others.

Karlee is the best counselor I have ever had! I feel seen and heard and valued because of her. With her help, support, and guidance I have been able to put my life back together after immense emotional trauma. Her kindness and expertise is amazing. She put me at ease and I knew I could trust her immediately. She has helped me find myself again and for that, I am forever grateful.

Karlee was great! She has a lot of patience, respect for me and also profound expertise to help me solve problems. She was very smart! She could understand what I want to express very quickly and accurately and always made sure she got my feelings right before she proceeded to help me. Karlee really solved most of the problems on me and I was very motivated now to care for myself as suggested by her. I highly recommend Karlee. I received a lot of understanding, support and valuable suggestions from her!
