I have over 20 years experience in counseling and have worked with a diverse range of people and problems. I have a laid back, empathetic approach and will listen - not judge.

I'm experienced in working with depression, anxiety, bipolar, grief, addictions, aging & disability issues, LGBTQIA+ , work & relationship issues. My undergraduate degree is in sociology & psychology, and I have a master's in social work. I will listen and give support, and if you need some honest, constructive feedback about your issues, I'm ready.

As a social worker I am trained to look at the big picture: how we all affect each other, including our friends & family., our workplace & our community, & even the larger world. I understand the need for social justice and diversity. We need to work together to solve problems. But before we can fully do that, we need to work on ourselves.

Hello! My name is Kori and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 13 years of experience providing therapy services. I have worked in a wide range of therapeutic settings including military bases, outpatient settings, private practice, and teletherapy. I work with clients affected by depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, and relationship challenges. Originally from Long Island New York, I moved to Japan in 2010, then Guam in 2017. In 2020 I lived briefly in Spain. I currently live in Virginia Beach, Virginia. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the City University of New York Hunter College and my Masters degree at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. My approach to therapy is client-centered: clients are the experts on their lives and determine the direction and depth of therapy. One of the first questions that I will ask a client is, " Do you learn best through touch, hearing, or sight. We then work together to create a treatment plan that meets the expectation that the client has for their time in therapy with me. I meet the client where they are in life and utilize different types of treatment modalities that include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Brief Solution Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT,) to decrease behaviors or thoughts that cause stress or conflict. I also assist the client in developing skills that are desired , as well as provide a supportive and safe space to help the client begin their journey to obtain peace and joy . Outside of my work as a therapist, I teach Zumbini to children and parents to add joy to the world. I also enjoy reading, cooking, watching Netflix, and traveling to new places.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some commonly asked questions can be found below.

How much does a therapist cost?

Mental health professionals can differ in price. Forbes found that the average cost of in-person therapy in the US is around $100 to $200 per hour. Pricing can also vary based on your location. 

BetterHelp offers payment plans of $60 to $90 per session, charged monthly in a lump sum. You can also take advantage of this pricing on one of BetterHelp's sister platforms, like ReGain for couples or TeenCounseling for teens aged 13 to 19.

Many therapists may be upfront about their pricing and whether or not they take health insurance from the beginning. Additionally, some in your area may offer a sliding scale plan to allow those with lower incomes to pay less for therapy. However, services online can often save individuals a few hundred dollars per month.

How do I know if I should get a therapist?

Mental health services and mental health providers may help you navigate various concerns. You do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy; You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general advice. A counselor may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Mental health issues don't always present as a crisis. Many professionals provide talk therapy and support for life transitions, skills learning, relationship problems, or life coaching. Online therapy sessions in Delaware can allow clients seeking therapy to experience professional help through video, phone, or live chat sessions without commuting to an office.

Does insurance cover therapy?

Different counseling services can vary in cost. Therapists must apply to accept insurance through insurance companies, which may take time and money, so not every therapist offers services through insurance. If you cannot find a therapist that accepts your plan, BetterHelp may be cheaper than visiting an in-person therapist.

Is online therapy safe?

Online therapy through BetterHelp and its sister platforms is safe. Therapists are licensed, experienced, and vetted before being contracted with the platform. If you experience any concerns with your therapist, you change your counselor through the platform or app at any time.
