Katie Husted

(LCSW)

About Me

Hello and welcome to BetterHelp; I am glad that you are looking for a safe place to talk about what you are going through--you have taken a positive first step! My name is Mary Husted (but you can call me Katie!) and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of Florida and North Carolina. I have 9 years of experience working with children and adults in both an outpatient setting and inpatient crisis stabilization. I also have several years of experience in Hospice and medical social work. Throughout the last 9 years, I have worked with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, grief, and life changes (especially with aging adults). I would be honored for you to trust me with whatever it is you are going through, whether it's daily life stress, major life changes, or something in between. I offer a non-judgmental approach to therapy and understand that each individual has their own story and own set of circumstances. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing, which can be helpful in changing thinking patterns and offer a new perspective. Therapy can be a great opportunity for self-discovery and growth and I would be happy to guide you in whatever way I can. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Katie was excellent. However, she is in the middle of a move to a different state. So, she has not been available. We need to find another counselor.

I feel so comfortable opening up to Katie and she helps make communicating tough emotions really easy. She's open and supportive and provides a safe space to share anything and everything I might be dealing with.

Katie is very responsive and shows that she cares by actively-listening and pinpointing the root of the issues I am experiencing. She has a wonderful way of approaching our correspondence and has helped to direct our conversations in a productive manner.

Written by A.L. on Nov 30, 2020 after counseling with Katie for 4 months on issues concerning intimacy-related issues, self esteem, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Katie has been wonderful over the past couple of months. She’s really helped me through some confusing moments in my life, and help guide me into finding my own answers. She provides me unlimited support, and offers a safe space to share my thoughts. I’ve walked away on numerous occasions with action steps to apply in my life. Next thing I knew, many of the goals I came into counseling with had been reached. I love working with her!

Katie has truly been amazing to me through an extremely difficult time in my life. She has helped me gain control of my own thoughts and well being. I look forward to our weekly sessions and always walk away feeling supported and more prepared for the week ahead.

I think Katie is a great! She listens, understands and gives the kind of advice that you can only get from someone who cares!

Written by A.D. on Sep 08, 2020 after counseling with Katie for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

I have only worked with Katie for a few weeks, but she has been so wonderful in walking with me through the mental health and circumstantial issues that I am currently dealing with. She is kind, compassionate, understanding, and works hard to help me become a better person, to break patterns that i’ve been stuck in with my mental health/disordered eating, and to just be more kind and compassionate towards myself.

Kate been helpful so far I mean we just started and I feel like she can help me she always answers when I need her

Written by K.A. on Jun 25, 2020 after counseling with Katie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and grief

Katie Husted is a very knowledgeable and compassionate. Weve only had a few sessions so far, but already I am looking forward to seeing her in my next session, and it's 4 days away. She brings out something special in me that I'm not sure I knew existed. She reminds me how important it is for me to get rest, a good nights sleep, and continue my hobbies and exercise. I would recommend her to any one of my friends or family. She encouraged me to perhaps stop walking on egg shells around my daughter..... and it worked. Thank you BetterHelp. :)

Katie has been very helpful in a difficult time where traditional counseling is hard to do.
I appreciate her quick responses and the multiple ways we can connect.

Written by B.E. on May 09, 2020 after counseling with Katie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and parenting issues

Katie is very compassionate, takes a lot of time to listen and think before she responds and finds ways to relate with things I'm going through I think she's a great counselor and I have recommended this service to friends and family.

Written by K.A. on May 09, 2020 after counseling with Katie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and parenting issues

I truly feel supported by her. Even if she can't give me the response she wants right away she will let me know that she has received my messages and will get back to me soon. I like that I can talk about things as they happen instead of having to wait a week for the next session. I have already recommended BetterHelp to a friend and have been very happy with the help and feedback Katie has been able to provide.

Katie takes the time to understand my concerns and offers helpful tips that help me to learn better coping skills. I’ve found myself being more mindful throughout my days when dealing with stress and anxiety triggers.
