Karlee Young

(M.S., LPC)

About Me

Hi there! My name is Karlee, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been practicing counseling for nearly seven years and have come 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.

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.

I think Karlee is very thoughtful and kind. She listens and provides some good perspective and is pretty funny. It is always harf when you have some tough things to work through, but it is nice when you have an ally to do that with.

She listens and helps set goals, but is not blunt or pushy about it.

Karlee is very good at helping me understand the reasons that cause the conflicts in me. Once I know the reason, I found it easier to solve the conflicts. Her way of speaking, such as the wording and the intonation, is very nice. The counceling with Karlee is very helpful to me!

I LOVE working with Karlee. I have never felt this comfortable with a therapist before which is a really huge thing for me. I’m super happy to have Karlee and BetterHelp.

Karlee is so easy to talk to and understanding. She always knows what I'm trying to say even if I don't come across clear. If only every therapist could be this great!

She is very very trust worthy and I felt I could open up to her. I never feel judged when talking with her.
