Hi! My name is Skyler Dorsey and I am a licensed mental health therapist in the States of Washington and Oregon. I have been working in the field of social work for over 20 years and mental health for over 10 years. I received my master's degree in social work in 2006 from Eastern Washington University. I have experience with depression, anxiety, trauma, and life transitions. I primarily use cognitive behavioral and strengths based therapeutic methods to help people identify what isn't working in their lives and how to make changes that will lead to greater life satisfaction. I began as a part-time therapist with Betterhelp in August of 2018 and transitioned to make it my full-time job in December of 2019. Together, we can work to help move you along the path to happiness and contentment.
I look forward to working with you!
Additional areas of focus: LGBT, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy

My therapist is awesome but does not offer all the options for help that are available through better help… however she is so awesome that I won’t switch therapists because of this!
