About me

My name is Kelly Gesker and I'm a nationally licensed therapist. I currently live in Montana. You can take a look at my profile to learn a little bit more about my background and approach. Please also feel free to ask questions. Online counseling is fairly new and new to me. I felt a strong connection to what is troubling you and believe that I could help you work through these issues.

My counseling style is pretty laid back. I have been described as supportive, caring, and compassionate, with a pretty good sense of humor. I like to focus on identifying your strengths and helping you to maximize them to overcome your obstacles. I'm here to help you sort through the things that are difficult right now, and offer you a safe place to be open and honest without fear of judgment. You have taken the first and most important step by reaching out for help.

I have been working with individuals and families for over 25+ years. You can read more about my background, education, experience, and counseling approach by clicking on my name on this page. I generally check messages here a few times per day Mon-Sat and respond as quickly as I can. I do appreciate your patience when it takes a bit longer at times, as I may be tending to other clients or professional/personal responsibilities.

I'm sorry you are having a tough time right now, but I'm really glad you are reaching out. I'd like to help you work on the struggles you are facing; and offer you a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings. It sounds like you have a great deal going and that this might be impacting your mood and energy.

Once you respond to this message, I will send you some additional general information about how this online counseling process works, and then we can get started.

Should you feel in need of urgent help or that you are in crisis at any time during our work together; please call 1-800-273-TALK 24 hours a day; or 911. This forum does not provide any type of emergency services, so I want to be sure you know who to contact if you need immediate help.

You are not alone. Things can and will get better. I'm really looking forward to working with you!

Kelly is such an amazing therapist and person, I’ve really connected with her and she has given me many tools to manage my anxiety & depression. I couldn’t recommend her enough.

Good attitude, helpful advice.

Kelly is amazing in offering sound advice as well as listening to the root of my problems. She provides guidance on areas I didn’t realize I needed to seek support in. Each week I find a chip of my wall crumbling thanks to her sessions.

I’m newly working with Ms. Gesker but so far I’m very happy with the outcome. She listens to me, has responded with great advice and words when I’ve reached out beyond our video chats. She has me wanting to work on myself more and journal, join group therapy, do the worksheets, etc.
