I am licensed as a mental health professional in Nebraska and New Mexico (living in New Mexico) with seven years of experience. I have worked with clients on the gender spectrum, individually and in groups, with a wide range of concerns, including: trauma, PTSD, domestic violence, sexual trauma, LGBTQ+, depression, coping strategies, grief, anxiety and relationship issues. My BA in Psychology and Russian is from the University of Oregon and my MA in Counseling is from the University of New Mexico. My counseling approach is integrative and begins with the core of person centered therapy in addition to aspects of solution focused therapy and at times elements of cognitive behavioral therapy. I believe that counseling is an opportunity for me to join you in the process of finding what is and isn't working for you and supporting you in creating change to help you navigate life with confidence. I see my role as helping you identify and work on your goals for counseling, increase your self awareness, self understanding and self compassion.

Hello and Welcome to BetterHelp! I am so glad you've taken this step to seek out support for whatever you are going through. My name is Karla Burgess. I am a licensed independent mental health practitioner (LIMHP) in the great state of Nebraska. My 19 years of experience have taken place in either a hospital setting or in my private practice in a rural community. Being the only mental health practitioner in my area has given me experience with a wide range of mental health concerns such as anxiety/depression, behavioral concerns, parenting, relationship issues, and grief. My experience as a school counselor also makes me very comfortable working with kids, teens, and adults. My treatment approach includes creating a strong relationship with the person that I work with. I'm trained in many theories of counseling but typically use ideas and techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and a Client-Centered approach. I definitely believe in goal-directed work and make sure that the steps we are taking together are getting you closer to your counseling goals. Former and current clients describe me as kind, compassionate, caring, supportive, and empathetic. Creating a genuine connection with my clients is key to our success. I consider this opportunity to insert myself into your life a privilege and a huge responsibility. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you through whatever is hindering your growth and happiness.

I am currently licensed as an LMHC in the state of Iowa and as an LMHP in the state of Nebraska. For the last 5 years, I have been serving clients ranging in age from 3 to 80, with primary focus on individuals aged 13-40. I look to offer a therapeutic approach that is inclusive, non-judgmental, and welcoming. I do this through use of various techniques in an eclectic approach using CBT, DBT, Narrative therapy, CPT, Mindfulness, & EFT skills, that seek to meet a client where they are with their individual concerns. I have previous experience with children, adolescents, individuals, couples, and families ,and treatment experience with depression, anxiety, ADHD, ASD, Body Dysmorphia, LGBTQ+ concerns, perfectionism, HSPs, PTSD, & grief or loss. I have also recently become EMDR trained & am in the process of becoming EMDR certified. I believe everyone comes to therapy for various reasons, but with the same goal in mind: to find peace, balance, acceptance, or healing. As a therapist, I believe it is my job to work together with clients to find their individual path to that goal, by sharing in their struggles and celebrating in their successes. I have found that making that first appointment is often one of the areas a client will feel the most anxious, so I congratulate you in taking that step! I hope that together we can meet your goals and work toward creating a meaningful and valuable experience that aids you in your life's purpose. I look forward to hearing from you!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Cornlea area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Cornlea therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Cornlea due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Cornlea may not take health insurance, some in the state of Nebraska may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of Nebraska you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Cornlea, Nebraska working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Cornlea above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets.

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Cornlea therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Cornlea therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words.

With a lot of people in NE, providers may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours.

No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Cornlea counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, 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 feedback and advice. A Cornlea licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Cornlea, Nebraska can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Cornlea has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
