About Me

Kory Wilson: LCMHC, MCOUN, Idaho State University

Personal Approach:
I enjoy helping people reach their potential by using an integrative therapy approach: Client-Centered, Gestalt and Cognitive therapy to help people heal, take personal responsibility and overcome thinking errors. I work to build a relationship with clients so they will be more receptive to learning better coping skills. I believe all people have innate and developed strengths. They only need help to uncover and focus their strengths in a positive direction. I encourage people to quiet their thoughts, focus on their strengths and become more aware of their maladaptive thoughts and behaviors. My favorite quote is “You can do hard things.” Each one of us is capable of doing hard things and overcoming obstacles in our lives.

Personal Interests:
I enjoy reading. I find it rejuvenating, introspective and meaningful. My two favorite books are “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success” by Carol S. Dweck and “The Happiness Advantage” by Shawn Achor. These books have helped me move past challenges, find continued personal growth and live a happier and more meaningful life.

I enjoy exercising and spending time outdoors. I believe we need to take care of our physical health in order to maintain our mental health. My approach to exercise is very simple, “be consistent”. It is the steady tortoise that wins the race. I find a simple 20 to 30 minute exercise is a great way for me to boost my energy and create a healthier me.

I love to spend time with my family. I have one girl and two boys. They have endless energy and keep me active. We enjoy spending time at the park, going camping and taking trips to the beach. We have two dogs. Tilly Bug is a chihuahua and Gucci is a chihuahua mix. They don’t play fetch, but they are fun to take on walks!

Kory is incredibly kind and a great listener. I really appreciate the client led approach as he allows me to explore my own thoughts and feelings-while also providing feedback and framework. Kory provides the encouragement I need, as I am learning to trust myself. Highly recommend Kory, especially to anyone who may be nervous about starting therapy or needs someone who is highly approachable.

Kory is a highly engaged listener who offers real tools and skills to deal with issues.

Kory has never made me feel judged, only supported. I can’t recommend BetterHelp or Kory enough.
