Over the last 16 years, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. I have helped people with a wide range of problems, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, communication challenges, self-esteem, trauma, and abuse.

My counseling style is interactive, warm and compassionate. My approach combines cognitive behavioral and solution focused counseling. I really enjoy having conversations with my clients and hearing their stories while guiding them to where they want to be.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kelly Cole. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Written by E.L. on May 22, 2022 after therapy with Kelly for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, and self esteem

Kelly is a great therapist. She understands and listens to my expectations for each of our sessions, and applies everything I have explained I would like to cover over our sessions. I told her in the beginning I would just like someone to talk to and listen to me and she does just that and more. After just one session, I knew she was the right one for me!

Work with me!
