Hey! You've come to the right place, because counseling is for everyone.
We all need to check in with ourselves from time to time, and get feedback so that we aren’t just running on auto pilot. Opportunity is all around us, but taking some time and slowing down is essential to seeing that opportunity.
My approach is simple: Work with what you have and try to focus your energy on your own development. This requires we make consistent steps each day, and engage in tracking, planning and organizing, as well as learning new ways of thinking. To find wellness we must stop focusing on other people and how they’ve harmed us, because we can't force other people to change.....or to give us validation. We can only find true peace from within.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, an Approved Clinical Supervisor, and a Nationally Certified Counselor. I received a Master's degree in 2012 and was fortunate enough to work closely with many counseling educators who were at the top of their field. My experience in graduate school helped prepare me for working with diverse issues, and I’m confident in my cultural and clinical competency. After earning the hours, supervision, and experience necessary I gained clinical licensure, which means I can supervise students, other mental health professionals and clinics.
With this platform, we’re not limited to weekly sessions-- you can write everyday which gives you a place to express yourself, and I'll be here to listen and provide valuable feedback. I'd love to learn more about what you've been struggling with as well as your goals, and how you would like life to change for the better.
Be well! :)

I appreciate Katherine reaching out when I've been incommunicado for a few days.. she checks in and lets me know that she's there to listen and help. Because I process things over a couple of days, and am able to communicate my feelings well through the written word, I've found Better Help and Katherine a great fit for my mental health needs.
She has helped me cope and get a better understanding of my self, but mostly how to work on myself.
Katharine is incredible! We're still working through things, but from the first few days of talking with her, I feel lighter. She gives me determination, hope that I will be able to work through things, and is just a relief to hear someone supporting me and being on my team with her warm demeanor. I highly recommend!
I think I've gotten a lot out of chatting with Katharine over the past few months. I appreciate the kindness that permeates all of our conversations.
Katharine is an amazing counselor. She is also an awesome listener. I love that she asks questions to make sure she gets a better understanding of where I’m coming from. Thanks so much Katharine.
I feel so lucky that my first experience in counseling has been with Katharine. I always feel like a priority, checked in on and supported. I felt totally comfortable sharing anything with Katharine and always received insightful feedback and suggestions.
Katharine has been very understanding, and I feel like I can talk to her about absolutely anything without judgment. It’s refreshing to find someone who praises you and reminds you that you’re doing your best and give advice on helping you continue to be your best.
Katherine has been able to help me work through trauma that two local counselors struggled with. She is understanding and able to validate how I'm feeling, giving me a safe space to talk about any of my struggles.
It always makes my day knowing that Katharine responded back. She's great to communicate with and definetly helps out with any struggle you are dealing with. C:
I love how Katharine is supportive without ever giving you advice or judgment. She constantly points out the positive and good while holding space for the harder things.
I appreciate the homework Katharine provides, she is very supportive and gives me the tools, but she makes sure I really think about things and put those tools to work. I feel like I have learned so much about myself with her help in a short period of time. Thanks a million Katharine!
Katherine has been very timely in responding to my messages. She has the questions to get me think of ways to better manage myself and look back at things I could have done differently. Katherine has been a great outlet for me and would recommend her to anyone.
Katherine is great at recognizing the things you need help with most and really focusing on tactics that help you improve. She is a good listener and understands where you are coming from. Just a great person!
I appreciate Katharine's patience when listening to my concerns and responding with empathy. She has a balanced point-of-view that helps me be accountable, while also being understanding.
Ms. Jamison listens and is positive... having a sounding board is really helpful. I don't regret this experience at all.
I cannot say enough great things about Katharine! She really does care about her patients and wants to work with them. She not only listens but she also works with you at every angle to find a solution to what you want to resolve for yourself. Highly recomend, she has helped me so much with managing my anxiety!
I was nervous to try this app, but Katharine has really helped me come out of my shell and makes me feel very comfortable in such weird times. I definitely recommend her and Better Help.
She is awesome, and is helping me work thru alot of things that will help me get back to being centered.
This has been my first counseling experience and Katherine has been great to work with. She brings a great outside perspective to my life and issues and identifies areas where I can improve and work on in a respectful and professional manner. She's been completely flexible with my schedule which can be difficult and responds as often as I've needed. I would recommend her to anyone.
Katharine is amazing, and I feel so lucky to be matched with her. She understands me sometimes better than I understand myself. Her insight comes from her excellent listening skills, and her ability to perfectly capture what it is I'm dealing with. When I feel at loss of words, Katharine helps me find my voice. When I feel as though life is getting heavy again, she helps ease the load and steer me in a more nurturing direction. Thank you so much, Katharine.
so far i have found very comforting speaking and communicating with Katharine, she is actively trying to get me to open up and she has given me already tools to help improve my mental state and wellbeing. i am looking forward to continuing working with her!
Katharine is a wonderful counsellor - warm, engaging, and supportive. She actively works with me to help my mental health and responds quickly. I would highly recommend her!
Katharine's expertise is helping me tremendously. She is very insightful and deliberate. She listens well and adapts her approach so that I get the most benefit from her counseling. I appreciate the supportive and collaborative approach.
Katharine has been (and continues to be) a huge help for me. She has helped me work on my own emotional hang-ups, my mood disorder, my relationship issues and my substance abuse. After almost 10 years of therapy, I’ve finally found someone I want to talk with.
Really helpful and very carefully listens to your problems.
Katharine has been great at listening and reflecting on my issues.
Katharine has been very prompt and thorough in her replies. She always restates what I have expressed, to ensure we are on the same page, and she isn't afraid to challenge me. It has been very helpful.
Katharine is attentive, kind, and helpful. She helped me vocalize my concerns in a way that can be understood and tackled. I felt supported through her prompt messages as well as her phone call. I'm really glad that I was matched with her on this platform.
When I first joined better help I was very skeptical. In the past I’ve only known any kind of mental help to be physical one on one, sharing thoughts and working towards figuring out what happened TO me. With an open mind and willingness to try anything that will help, Katharine has been there with me helping to break through my emotional walls more than any other person I’ve known. I’m learning so much about what it means to be healthy and to move forward instead of focusing on past traumas. If I could rate her help with my life: 20/10!
Katharine is patient and uplifting. I enjoy that she challenges me with work and checks in with me often.
I am usually not a very open person when it comes to talking about, well, pretty much anything. But Katharine has been really great at asking questions that get me thinking and she is really friendly and easy to talk to. I am super glad I was connected with her through betterhelp.
I feel that I am in a safe space here, like I can talk about what's on my mind without being judged. I really like the method that Katharine uses, she doesn't try to solve anything for me, I feel like she just directs my thoughts, by giving me questions to think about. I think she believes that people have the power over their own thoughts, and by thinking positively, as cliche as that sounds, we can influence a lot. Even though I was doing very good without therapy, the sessions so far made me think about and process certain things, as well as feel more confident in some of my own ideas, which turned out to be really helpful.
I have had a great experience with Katharine! She helped me discover mindfulness and fight through lots of internal insecurities around my professional life and general negative thinking. The progress I have made is immense and it is thanks to her guidance and support. Highly recommended!
Katharine quickly became my guiding light after just a few conversations. Her positivity and ability to communicate is outstanding. I couldn't have asked for a better match. Thanks Katharine!
Katharine shares uplifting texts every so many days which has helped me in my journey. She explores my concerns with deeper questions and ties in what we talked about via text for me to reflect later. If you are looking for someone who is strong on their messaging and phone calls, she is great to work with.
So far so good! I am enjoying speaking with her. I look forward to speaking with her more
She is spectacular!
I love Katharine! I've been with many therapists and she is by far my favorite. She always responds much faster than I anticipate and she's amazing at what she does. I'm glad to have her on this journey with me.
I was skeptical about whether online counseling would work for me, and it took me a minute to get the hang of it. But Katharine has done a great job of making me feel heard, while also gently pushing me to question my thinking - which is something I need as someone who has spent too much time getting lost in the same old tracks in my mind. Thank you, Katharine, I appreciate your help. :)
Katharine has made my first counseling session so easy. She is constantly sending me encouraging messages and checking in with me. She provides practical advice/tools to help me manage my emotions and responses in a productive way. Her compassionate and thoughtful perspective has helped me change the way I think about mental health.
Katharine has been very kind and supportive through a very tough time in my life. She has heard my concerns and responded with a variety of ways to work through each situation that may arise. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a compassionate, friendly, and wise counselor.
Katharine entered my life in a time when I really needed her, and spoke words that I felt like I had been waiting many years to hear. She responds to me with thoughtful and thorough answers that not only encourage me to reflect on what I've already said and thought, but she also always finds a way to move the conversation forward so I feel guided through the process in a gentle but effective way. She's shared invaluable resources, and I can't tell you how many "aha" moments I've already had in a few short weeks. And it's not just guidance for internal dialogue, it's also tactics I can use in my relationships, work, and interactions with others. She messages me to check in even when I haven't had time to write on my own, which makes me feel cared for and accountable in continuing this journey. I look forward to doing this work thanks to Katharine!
Katharine Jamison is a wonderful thoughtful and caring counselor.
Katharine is one of the best therapists I've worked with. She is understanding, listens to my concerns and always responds very quickly. She keeps checking in, making sure I'm doing alright and always has the right words or ideas to convert my negative thoughts to a positive. I can't recommend her enough.
Katharine has been a joy to work with. She is intelligent and kind. She is very insightful with a sensitive and skilful way of expressing herself which allows our exchanges to flow smoothly and productively. I have been with her for a month and I have seen significant improvements in my life. I highly recommend her.
Katharine is a wonderful, kind and patient counselor. I wrote to her almost daily (sometime a lot!) and she usually answered within 24 hours. She used a great combination of just listening to what I had to say, offering very insightful advice and asking the right questions that would help me find my answers myself. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a calm listener and some great advice!
Katharine is always prompt with her replies and is very engaging, I trust her expertise and look forward to the end result.
She has helped me a lot.
Katharine had been very supportive and responsive to my issues. It was a very interactive session where i was given assignments to practice CBT. I think those exercises were really helpful. I am more aware than before of how I function. I thank her for all the support.
Katharine has been extremely patient and accommodating as I've gone through the difficult work of addressing long-standing unaddressed difficulties. She is also extremely knowledgeable and attentive, with her suggestions and exercises regularly lining up perfectly with my needs and subsequent developments.
Katharine is world class at what she does. Very helpful and I recommend her to anyone seeking a counsellor. Thank you for your help Katharine :)
The best counselor I've had so far!! Great listener, great advice. She's also very responsive which I love! The counselors that were assigned to me in the past gave me doubt about this app. But thanks to Katharine, I'll be coming back when I need it. :)
I enjoyed working with Katherine and found her very attentive and helpful. Although I ultimately decided that online counseling wasn't for me, I'd recommend her to anyone looking for help.
Katharine has been a wonderful counselor who has helped me feel confident in dealing with my stress an anxiety to the extent that I've reached new personal and career heights as a result! I highly recommend!!!

Katherine is nothing but kind, understanding, patient, and encouraging. She gives great advice for small steps forward and she makes you feel like she always has you and your well-being on her mind.
I am so glad I found Katharine and decided to try talking to her. She caught on what my main concerns were right from the beginning and has been helping me working through them. Although instant message reply is not possible, Katharine always reply to my messages very quickly and in the same day, even on the weekend. She is very supportive and encouraging for me to share my concerns without feeling conscious about myself.
Compassionate individual who takes the time to check in. She is genuine and I look forward to continue counseling with her.
I am so grateful that my first experience seeking counseling was with Katharine. She completely and truly understands and gave me valuable advice. She really helped me explore ways to control my anxiety. I cannot thank her enough for helping me through everything.
Katharine always makes it known that she’s there for you no matter how you’re feeling. She’s been so helpful to me in these hard times, and I couldn’t imagine working through this without her!
Katherine has been wonderful to work with. She always says the right thing and makes me believe in my self. She is very understanding and a great listener.

I love Katharine she's so nice and understanding and she always seems to say what I need to hear. She makes me look at myself and things differently which helps me a lot. I highly recommend her!
Katharine is the best counsellor I have ever worked with and I enjoy talking to her very much. She is thoughtful, encouraging and understands my concerns. Sometimes I even feel like she knows what is concerning me before I know myself.
Katharine has been amazing with her support and always tries to get to the bottom of my own issues. She has found many ways to get me out of my darkness and is a constant in my life.
She has been very helpful and encouraging to me.
Katherine has listened to all of my experiences good and bad and has been willing to give me a wide range of possible solutions to my problem.
I have nothing but great things to say about her. She was really patient and careful with her words, trying really hard each time to understand me and to make me feel better!
Katharine is a great counselor that is always there to listen and provides practical and down to earth feedback. She helped me realize things about myself that are hard to notice without that outside perspective, and has helped me find ways to improve my mental health. She is very kind and supportive, always has an open ear, and always reaches out to make sure I'm doing okay.
Katharine is a wonderful counselor. I was a little nervous about trying online counseling but it has been an amazing experience.

I find her to be extremely supportive and kind when she listens to your thoughts. She helps you understand what is going on and guides you to your own personal growth. You can find her to be very attentive of your feelings and thoughts and she will help you find your own solutions to the things that are troubling you. I really appreciated her help and got a lot better thanks to her insights.
Katharine is such a kind and compassionate person. Just from the small amount of time I’ve spent messaging her so far, I feel confident that she really tries to understand my issues, listens, and responds in a meaningful way.
She is very understanding and very kind. She's great at listening and I felt like she was able to give me constructive feedback without hurting my feelings. I was a little wary coming into this...but she always makes sure to respond to my messages, and after just a couple weeks I feel like I am making progress.
She seems to be really understanding of my problems and treats me as an individual. So far she really helped me work some things out and is teaching me how to cope with my fears on daily basis. Thanks to her I am on a good way of a better understanding of myself and channeling my energy in the direction that feel right for me.
Katherine Jamison is the best counselor I've had in a long time. She's easy to talk to, compassionate, and understanding. Everyone around me has noticed I have a more positive attitude, even on bad days. My boss has even commented on my improvement at work, improvements I've made with her help.
Katharine has been very helpful through my rough patch. I’m still on it now, but it’s very reassuring having her around. Somehow who shows empathy even if we’re just talking online. She encourages me to continue on this rough journey and tells me it’s gonna be okay.
Katharine has been very compassionate and understanding at all times. She has given excellent advice and lovely all around.
It's been a good experience, very helpful. It's been good. Still a bit to go but that's part of the process.

She listens and finds the areas that are trigger points for people and will bring a more positive solution or comment to the conversation. She has remained steady and fast to reply in her answers and has helped me feel confident that my feelings are being understood.
Katherine is very conscientious and very caring. She's an excellent counselor who is knowledgeable and respectful. She responds quickly, and is easy to talk with. I would highly recommend her.
I started taking Katharine's help when I was troubled with a lot of emotions and she soon helped me to put things in order. She has a lot of insight and could understand what I am going through and what I need to do and guided me accordingly. I feel much better within less than a week and will recommend her any day.
Katharine has spent time with me to help sort through my emotions at a time when life was starting to change and it became overwhelming. She has responded with courtesy and respect, offered excellent advice, and is very knowledgeable. I would highly, highly, highly, recommend her to a friend!
