Welcome to BetterHelp!
Many people come to therapy looking for a place where they can share their innermost thoughts and feelings openly, without fear of judgment and receive unconditional support. I have been providing this kind of open, caring, therapeutic environment to my clients throughout my career.
My name is Kimberley Haley and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Massachusetts. I received my Bachelorâ€™s degree in Clinical Psychology from McGill University in Montreal, Canada in 1993, and my Masterâ€™s Degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Massachusetts, Boston in 2001.
I have over 20 years of experience working with individuals who have experienced abuse and trauma, and as a result, my specialties include the treatment of anxiety, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and depression. I also have experience in assisting my clients to manage issues related to grief and loss, low self-esteem, the stress that accompanies divorce or separation and co-parenting as well as relationship and marital issues. I have experience as a behaviorist and have done a lot of work with clients who have a family member with intellectual or other disabilities. As such, I would be a great match for someone who is a caregiver for someone with a disability.
In my work, I feel it is crucial that I be able to get to know my clients and the environments that they are living in so that I can have a full understanding of what they are facing on a daily basis. My therapeutic approach is primarily Cognitive Behavioral in nature. I believe that the most successful treatment focuses on identifying problems, and providing guidance and a clear plan to address the negative issues that my clients are experiencing, so that they can have a sense of relief, and experience an improvement in their quality of life. I provide a non-judgmental and supportive environment so that the focus can remain on my clients and the work they are willing to do so that they may lead happier, healthier, more purposeful lives.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read my profile and I hope that I have the opportunity to work with you!
- Stress, Anxiety
I also have experience in Family, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related, Anger, Self esteem, Career, Bipolar

Since starting my counselling, I have really appreciated the feeling that I am 'really being heard' and that anything I have said, will be treated respectively and accepted as my own personal issues.
Kim has helped me talk through the issues I've been having and is really good at offering gentle guidance in a non judgemental way. She has also offered several useful techniques in dealing with anxiety that have really began to help me.
Kimberley is excellent and understanding.
Kim is by far the best counselor I have ever had. She is so kind, genuine, caring and professional. She knows exactly the right questions to ask to explore my problems and she has helped me understand my situation and condition so much. I felt like she came into my life at just the right time to help me get the guidance and support I needed. She has made such a big difference in my life in just 3 weeks. Her responses are timely and she made sure to address every concern I had. Thanks so much Kim!
Kimberley has been so helpful. She has been able to identify the underlying foundations of some of the problems I've been having and really work with me to find solutions to them. It has been such a great joy to work with her!
Kimberly is compassionate and very precise. She is able to discern through my ramble just where the help is needed and points me in the direction I need to go. Thank you!
Kimberley Haley offered wonderful support and a patient audience when I really needed it. She also encouraged me to develop and lean on my own support network without minimizing the discomfort I felt at doing so when I felt really low.
Kimberley's been very personal and helpful. I enjoy talking to her, and she's provided a lot of exercises that help me understand what I'm dealing with.

Kimberly is very insightful and has been great help in everything I'm dealing with. It's been great to have someone to share my thoughts with, it's so nice to know she's there if I need her.
Kimberly was very warm and understanding while also being practical and solution-oriented. She was able to understand the complexity of different situations and provide helpful ideas and resources for handling my own emotions and behaviors in productive ways.
After only a few conversations Kim has helped me sort out some feelings already and put things in perspective with my problem. Having someone who cares and follows up just to ask how I'm doing is so reassuring so I can only thank Kim for her great help!
It has been about 2 weeks I started counseling with Kimberley. I am glad to have her as my counselor as she is understanding and prompt in her replies. She helps me see things from another perspective. She helps me understand why I think, behave and feel in certain ways. Most importantly, she gives me hope about healing.
Very patient and careful person
She follows up on me, even on my worst days. When I can't even reach out for help, I got a message from her, and that changed my day. I am so grateful for what she has done for me, the time she spent, and the energy I received. She simply gave me a better insight into my situation and helped me to have realizations about myself.
Kimberley is very knowledgeable. She helped me through a difficult time.

She's very nice, reads between the lines and asks opportune questions that help get you on track.
Kimberley is a very good listener which is very important to provide a right counseling and definitely helped me to support effectively to resolve my on-going for years dilemma that causes me suffering. After interaction with Kimberley, I have a peace of mind and can focus on what matters the most to me. Thank you.
Kimberley is very honest with her opinions and lets you know that you're not alone. She also lets you know that theres other options for you. You can tell her about yourself and she won't judge or claim to understand the entirety of the situations you're explaining, however she will ask the questions to help her understand.
Kim is extremely passionate about what she does. She is extremely insightful and gives good perspective. She provides excellent advice and is an outstanding person to work with.
I went to many counselors in person before.. however, Kim is by far the best counselor I've ever had.. she is practical, to the point and really understands me.
Kimberley is great! She tells you things how they are, but not in a demanding or offensive type of way, she has a way with words that I will never understand. Love her!!!
Thanks for your help Kim! ðŸ˜Š
Kim has been extremely helpful in posing constructive questions and suggestions to help me reflect on my situation which I find extremely beneficial to therapy!! Thank you Kim!

Kimberely has helped me in many ways. She's non judgmental and caring and understands how I'm feeling.
Kimberly is amazing. She always makes things make sense in a way I couldn't ever see on my own. She made me see things in small pieces rather than the big picture and it has changed my life dramatically. I am setting and meeting goals I honestly never thought I would be able to do. She is easy to talk to and she really cares. I am very lucky to have found her.
Kimberley has been great so far! She is kind and non-judgemental. She is there when I need her and does not pressure me to stay in touch when I am not feeling up to contacting her. It is so good to have an objective 'shoulder to cry on' when you are working through difficult life circumstances and changes. :)
Kimberley Haley has been a great blessing to me - very responsive and insightful. She has helped to pull me out of a dark place, and I have a ways to go, but it amazes me how positive and hopeful I feel. I would wholeheartedly recommend this sort of therapy. There are obvious disadvantages with not being face-to-face, but there are also advantages that face-to-face therapy can't provide easily. I don't have to schedule commute time or get off work. I'm not tempted to cancel if I'm having trouble getting out of bed. I can say a little or a lot, and I can say it immediately as I feel it. All of that makes a big difference.
Kimberley is great at asking questions to try to get to the bottom of my problems and frustrations. She does a great job at using my answers to try to connect the dots and help me figure out my issues. She is very attentive and quick to respond. I definitely recommend her!
