My sessions with Katheryn have given me the clarity and encouragement that I didn’t know I needed. Within a few sessions I realized that I wasn’t stuck and I had the ability to change and make my world into the beautiful place that I once envisioned for myself. She was patient, kind and provided a safe space for me to be transparent without feeling ashamed or embarrassed, and that’s exactly what I needed to get through this dark place that I was in. Thanks to her sessions, I now feel refreshed, hopeful and I look forward to becoming a better, stronger version of myself.

Katheryn Mathews has been more than helpful in the short period of time I’ve been seeing her. I look forward to engaging in more conversations and utilizing her tools to build a better me, as she has shown me that she can give me my own tools through understanding my anxiety underneath the surface.

Ms. Katheryn is an amazing therapist! Any issues I have had, she has helped me work through. She has given me different methods to help my anxiety and I always look forward to our meetings. I have learned new coping skills and have been able to problem solve easier with the recommended approaches she has shown me. I appreciate her and would recommend her to all of my friends!

Written by K.I. on Mar 26, 2021 after counseling with Katheryn for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and family conflicts

I had been battling family issues for years and I finally decided to take the leap to talk to someone about them.
Katheryn helped me see my short comings but also that the familial drama I was dealing was in fact unhealthy and gave me the tools I needed to set boundaries and protect my peace.
I highly recommend Katheryn because:
She is a great listener.
She is empathetic.
But above all else, she’s so encouraging. She pushes you to think and talk about the hard stuff!

Katheryn is great. Very professional but relatable. My husband was nervous about couples counseling but she started off by asking him football questions and making him feel valued and involved. We appreciate her and her hard work.

Katheryn' has helped me in sessions restore my sense of self worth. There have been valuable thought provoking conversations that helped me process trauma. I have discussed issues with Katheryn that I have never been able to work through in years of therapy before. She made me feel very comfortable with any topic discussed, encouraged me through my process and offered support!

Katheryn' is very warm and I felt comfortable with her right away. I can tell that she cares about my personal development. Caring, kind and offers very good insight and reflections during our sessions. I'm so glad to have found her!

Once our session began, it took only moments before I was completely comfortable speaking with Katheryn and just as quickly I had complete confidence in her experience, knowledge and skills. She is an attentive, empathetic listener that encouraged me to address all issues, assets, and changes that make up who I am, where I am, and where I want to be. Her feedback is honest and goal orientated, breaking down what seemed as overwhelming life problems into manageable and achievable steps. This tailored care not only addressed the logistics of the troubles I was experiencing but also by accomplishing these steps I was able to rebuild my confidence and self esteem. Without judgment or preconceived expectations, Katheryn will meet her clients where they are, with openness and with an unwavering sense of hope. She is easily reached, reaches out, and is vested into her client's well being. Being a professional in the mental health field myself for over two decades, words alone can not explain how blessed I have felt having her as my therapist. As she has for me, Katheryn's compassion will continue to help guide people to their personal mental health and life goals. She has been a blessing to me and she is a credit to her profession.

The help I have been given is real. I didn’t know BetterHelp and Katheryn' would help me so much but I can’t believe how much I have grown in such a small time. Everyone should use BetterHelp for help.
