"Normal is just a setting on the dryer."-Adair Lara
Life isn't easy sometimes and I understand. We all go through trials and tribulations in life even though some of these may not seem like they are ever going to end. Many people avoid therapy because they don't want to feel "crazy" or be labeled for reaching out for help however this isn't the case. We all need help getting through our problems at times. I suggest every single person engage in therapy sometime in their life, it's good for the soul!
I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor and an Internationally Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I have worked in a variety of settings to include both mental health and addiction treatment facilities. I have over 15 years experience in the counseling field addressing depression, anxiety, anger, trauma/abuse and addiction. I am also very comfortable providing crisis interventions to those that may be experiencing immediate distress. I also have an extensive history working with family members of clients that have been diagnosed with Schizophrenia and Bipolar disorder. I focus on how a person is feeling and functioning not on the label that may have been given to them. There is such a stigma attached to mental health symptoms so I believe that focusing on the present gets the best results. I'll work with you to find solutions to the problems you may be experiencing and explore how thought patterns may be contributing to them. I like to laugh and incorporate the use of humor in my sessions. I love animals and enjoy hearing stories from clients about how they can brighten ones day!
I have a very flexible schedule and am available on nights/weekends. I look forward to getting to know your story and helping you to feel better day by day!

Kassi Goodman is wonderful. I haven't been working with her long, we have only had one live session so far which helped me more than I imagined it could as my first time working with a counselor. We were scheduled for an hour and ended up going well beyond this, she didn't rush me and really allowed me to get all of my thoughts out while providing honest and professional feedback. Things that I really needed to hear. Otherwise, we have mostly communicated through messaging. She has sent me a few articles related to some of the hurdles I am facing that were thoughtful and relative to what I am going through. Additionally, she checks in if she hasn't heard from me in a while. I will definitely continue to work with her!
My experience with Kassi Goodman has been awesome. She responds to all my issues in a timely manner and has always offered very good, positive advice. She knows the right questions to ask to get you thinking.
Kassi has been amazing to me in these few weeks and I know getting back to the real me is going to take some time but I'm confident with Kassi by my side i will learn the proper skills on addressing issues in the future which is something I've never known, I'm very grateful and cant stress enough that she is in fact helping save my life!
Understanding, upbeat, super helpful
Kassi is great - she is really listening to my issues and helping me find a path to resolve them. She always provides supporting and helpful comments that really help me deal with emotional issues and help me handle them.
Kassi is great! Very responsive, supportive, and understanding. Would highly recommend!
Kassi has been a great counselor. She has helped me to over come a lot of issues and continues to help me work through things.
I have been working with Kassi on a variety of issues and I would highly recommend her to anyone! She has been amazing! She offers professional guidance, gives you worksheets to do, and offers various other resources to help you get through your struggles.
She has made a tremendous change in my life and how I look at situations. I am most grateful for being matched with her and that we connected.
Kassi is very empathetic and knowledgeable, and I'm glad to be able to rely on her wisdom while navigating the workplace. Thank you Kassi!
Kassi has been great. I have been working with her for about 3 weeks now and she has truly help me think through things. She gives me good advice and is honest about helping me reach the best conclusion. She is non-judgmental which is great and responds quickly. She gives me exercises to complete and articles to ready which help me a lot. I didn't know how online counseling would go, but Kassi has truly made the experience a good one. She's great!!
Very helpful...this doesn't feel fake or rehearsed at all. I had my doubts on how this could help but my counselor seems genuinely wanting to help and sometimes that is all you need.
Wonderful, couldn't have found a better counselor.
I've only just started therapy with Kassi, but so far I have found her friendly and easy to speak (type!) to. She seems to know the right questions to ask... I am looking forward to spending more time with her as I am optimitic she will be able to help
Kassi Goodman is beautiful inside and out. She listened to me carefully and attentively. She asked questions and let me open up to her in a natural and calm and safe space. I felt very much heard, and also felt her compassion and dedication to her work. She gave me a lot of important talks, which helped me to better understand what I've been through and how I can reach out for more help as well. Her concern and constant attention was so much appreciated. I thank you Kassi Goodman for your kindness, compassion and words of wisdom that touched my spirit. The spirit is really where the human being exists, and although our experiences in life are so uncertain and so primitive in nature as well, we as a species have evolved to be better able to cope with our fight and flight response and as well with coping with violence that naturally exists. Whether it be internal struggles, abuse, addiction, or learning to really love ourselves for who we are it is all a journey, and Kassi was a guide on mine. A genuine heart and a brilliant professional who I would highly recommend to anyone.
I rate Kassi with 5 stars.
Its great to have someone to talk to.
Kassi Goodman is a kind, caring individual. I may not always agree with what she says, but I always listen, and she always listens right back. No matter what I say, or what I want to talk about, she is non-judgmental. I think I made the right choice signing up for betterhelp.com and being assigned to Kassi. The only regret I have is I will probably never get to meet her in person in this lifetime to tell her "Thank You!" for her help.
Kassi is awesome! After just a few weeks I find I am learning things about myself that I have never realized for years. She knows how to find out whats really bothering you or messing up your life and how to find the best ways to go about fixing it. I would definitely recommend her if your going through problems and feel you need answers but don't know how to find them.
I love Kassi. She is kind, non-judgmental, and listens to me with love and caring.
Kassi is a very thoughtful and caring counsellor. She always responds quickly and gives really valuable recommendations. I have greatly benefitted from her insightful questions and useful advice. If you want a positive experience with counseling, I highly recommend her.
To say that Kassi Goodman was helpful would be an understatement. From the outset, she was very receptive to my needs. She gives good advice that works. Even when there were situations in which I couldn't do anything, just the fact that she is there to listen and to talk to is one of the best remedies to my feelings of helplessness. Kassi is honest, open and kind, and I would heartily recommend her.
Kassi is passionate at what she does. She has helped to me to deal with what I was going through at the moment as well as the topics that I brought up later on. I felt comfortable messaging her and opened up about a lot of things. She has a way of making you realize how irrational your thoughts may be at times and will use humor to get her point across. It truly works better than anything! She provided me with many guidelines, online sources and asked just the right questions. Always responds on time and I could not be more pleased with working with her. Definitely grateful for all the help.
Terrific listener. Providing great feedback and alternatives to conquer your life in a positive way.
I had traditional therapy sessions 20 years ago. When I learned of "on-line" therapy, naturally I was skeptical. The idea of being one of hundreds seem very impersonal for very personal issues. But I went ahead and tried it because it did seem convenient.
I can now tell you that my skepticism was quickly set aside. Not only because of the ability to write to your therapist at any time, instead of having to wait for that one hour per week that you have to interrupt your schedule to get to, but because of the surprising quality of care and professionalism that Kassi, my therapist, brought to the table.
Kassi's first impression was right on the mark with her comments. She is supportive, insightful, appropriately inquisitive and respectful. Her ideas, questions, and comments, along with use of other resources have been extremely helpful. I have made noticeable corrections in some of my responses to life's stresses and have already begun to feel the difference. From the first communication, Kassi has shown her value and has been able to help me make progress in areas that I have never before. I would highly recommend her and I consider myself very fortunate that I connected with her. She's making a great difference in my life.
