I am a licensed mental health counselor working in the state of Florida with over 8 years of experience. I have worked in populations of all ages, particularly adolescents, young adults and middle-aged adults with a wide range of issues relating to depression, anxiety, anger, grief & loss, trauma, abuse, addiction, relationships, parenting, family conflict, blended/foster family, work/career, school, life changes, self-harm, suicidal ideation, self-esteem, felony/probation, LGBTQ, gender identity... and so much more.
My counseling style is unique, because I focus on the relationship with my client. I believe that once a genuine connection is established trust can then take place, and the sky is the limit on what can be accomplished at that point. Without a connection, there is no foundation to stand on. My clients have described me as "very easy to talk to." My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, solution-focused, mindfulness and motivational interviewing therapies tailored to meet my client's needs.
I became a counselor, because I truly care about people. I meet my clients where they are at and without judgement. I am a survivor of my own traumas, and am solid proof that it does not matter where you came from and what you've been through in life, you can still have the life you so desire. All that matters is where you go from here. I whole-heartedly believe that there's a better life out there for everyone if 1) you truly want it , and 2) you are willing to put forth the commitment and effort it takes in order to achieve it.
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." - Lao Tzu
I look forward to working with you! :)

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kelly Coronel. 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.
Kelly has been such an incredible therapist, right from the beginning she has graced me with compassion, care and attentiveness to my needs and struggles. My previous experiance of therapy had me sceptical but Kelly completely change my view and fears within the first session, I have never been so confident or at peace with myself with my my anxieties. Kelly's attention to detail and her ability to listen and work with you through every problem has been a more than I could have ever asked for, the foundation of building therapy as a friendship has helped immensely with opening up and feeling comfortable and confident.
Kelly is truly a great therapist and has so much knowledge and wisdom. I can't thank her enough for her support and work.

Kelly has been very helpful at helping me refocus my grief into more constructive and positive emotions. When I started therapy, I was floundering, drowning in sorrow. Talking with her helped me take control of my responses to that grief. She was easy to talk to, supportive, and understanding. This was my first time experiencing therapy, and it's definitely been a positive one. Thank you, Kelly!

Thank you for your advice and positive energy, it would be so hard for me to express myself towards my problem, but Kelly did an amazing thing was to create a cosy, warm atmosphere so that I could open myself to share more, and to move from my past trauma.

I like how Kelly always encourages me to speak my heart out. She is the reason why I feel so good about the person I am and I genuinely think that she can literally help anyone get closer to their true authentic voice, the one filtered by the external noise
