About Me

I am so proud of you for taking the first step in reaching out to get some help. Welcome to Betterhelp!
My name is Kathleen Borgeson and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of California. I am passionate about people and helping others through difficult times. I have been a therapist for 25 years working with children, adolescents, adults and senior citizens. Most of my work has been around grief and loss issues; losing someone you loved, a job opportunity or home, a relationship or miscarriage.
Grief touches all of our lives whether it be from a loss of a parent, child, career, physical impairment or struggles with depression, anxiety and insecurities.
It is important to be able to express feelings around the losses we experience and have someone there who can provide support, tools and resources in order to get back to a stable level of functioning. You are not alone. With my caring and supportive demeanor, I am ready to help you, exactly where you are at.
By using a narrative approach, mindfulness and motivational interviewing, I work with all age ranges of individuals from teens to senior citizens. Cognitive-behavioral and Solution Focused therapy as well as being patient centered are very effective.
My passion is YOU, listening and providing support and tackling the struggles you are facing.

Reviews

Written by N.A. on Oct 22, 2020 after counseling with Kathleen for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

Kathleen is very refreshing to work with. She listens which is something I really needed and she responds when she it’s the right time. She’s very encouraging and honestly makes you feel good about yourself when you everything/one else isn’t. She is real with you when she talks and helps out ideas and emotions into perspective.
