I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. I have been working with a variety of client issues for over 7 years. I specialize in treating teens and adults who experience a variety of roadblocks in life. I take a collaborative approach to counseling and therapy, in that you and I will together determine your best treatment, and I have a deep respect for your choice in seeking help. Issues may include: anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, relationship concerns, substance abuse and other addiction issues, disordered eating and poor relationship with food, family of origin difficulties, attachment issues, low self-esteem, communication problems, life transition, personal growth, codependency, disordered personality traits, women's issues, grief, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, anger management, problems with work/career, sexuality concerns, low resilience, or concerns with intimacy.
I take a holistic view of problems in our lives and work with you as the expert of your own experience. I believe compassion, understanding, and the therapeutic relationship are valuable as the framework within which change will occur. I use a combination of approaches that will be catered to your individual needs, including cognitive-behavioral strategies, acceptance and commitment principles, mindfulness exercises, existential theory, a psychodynamic understanding of the development of problems, and other approaches that may be most useful.
Asking for help is difficult. Taking that first step to do so is courageous and strong.

Katherine Longley is very understanding and helps me to understand my focus.
Katherine has helped me through a lot in the short time I have known her. I have already recommended BetterHelp to a friend and do to anyone looking for flexible counseling options. I work a lot and there is no way I would be able to find an affordable counseling option in the conventional manner. Thank you BetterHelp and thank you Katherine for all your help!
Without hesitation I would recommend BetterHelp to anyone. Kate was able to ask all the right questions enabling me to find my own solutions through intentional actions and changing my thinking habits. This is how real life change happens. She was always there for me, said all the right things and helped me overcome many many issues. She is fiercely wonderful at her profession and I can’t thank her enough for changing my life.
She is great.
She's very understanding, and even though I've not been with her long, I feel she has helped me just by having a person to discuss difficult things with.
I've had a few therapy sessions with Katherine after a long time of trying to find the right therapist- I found the one I was needing in my life to guide me. When you think of an exceptional therapists attributes- Katherine has them all. She's patient, funny, friendly and most importantly she offered me ideas and her approach has been very unique in aspects of how to approach difficulties. Whenever I have a session with her- I feel empowered and ready to take on what life will throw at me. I also love that she's open minded and allows me to show emotions. I'd recommend her highly to anyone who is in need of guidance. In fact i speak so highly of her that my own family is willing to try her out. I love you Katherine- thank you so far for showing me so much.
I am thankful to be working with Katherine. She is professional and patient. She has put up with a lot of wild emotion from me, but she always remains calm and focused. She is a keen listener, and is able to pluck issues out of my remarks that need focus. We have been working together for quite some time, but she has patiently hung in and we are now identifying the problems that need solving.
Thank you so much for the help you have provided, with the counseling I received I managed to change my life around, I know see things in a very different light, and I have found a new enjoyment out of life that I had been missing for a very long time. I can't thank you enough :)
Katherine has been nothing short of amazing to talk to, and has helped me sort through some rather unusual life challenges. Hope you get her!
I was nervous to start using BetterHelp because I didn't know what to expect, but as soon as I was matched with Katherine all of my fears went away. She is very friendly and made me feel comfortable immediately. I can talk to her about whatever is on my mind and I can tell from her responses that she pays attention to every detail.
I enjoy my sessions with Katherine! She helps me look at situations in a different perspective. Now the way I think about issues have changed and I feel I'm becoming a better and a happier person.
Katherine always takes her time and replies in a prompt manner. I feel like she always read what I said and formulates a well-thought reply.
Dr. Longley has been phenomenal in her advice to me. I have no complaints and I will continue to consult with her on my issues.
Katherine saved my relationship and gave me the tools to be happy and confident again. When she responds I can tell that she really takes some time to read my messages carefully. This makes me feel important and cared for. I keep telling everyone that I have the best therapist!
