About Me

I was a student trainee and then became an intern. During this period of time, I counseled a few couples. I have been at BetterHelp for over a year and have been counseling couples, I think, for the entire year.

I was a student at California State University, Dominguez Hills. I went into the Masters Program and now am licensed, with my master's degree. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

If I do not know something, I will tell you that and then go to my sources. I have friends who are licensed therapists and my
past supervisor, who are more than willing to answer my questions. I also will look something up on the internet or perhaps look something up in a book. I have also posted questions on the BetterHelp Forum and have received information that I share with my clients.
And if I can't find an answer, I will tell you that.

I learned a way of communicating in my graduate program. I share this method with couples who are having communication problems. It is called, Non-Violent Communication by Marshall Rosenberg, Ph.D. I tell you the steps, I give you an example, and then I have each person practice it. The worksheets that BetterHelp has for couples is something else I send to my clients.

I look forward to working with you.

Respectfully submitted,
Kathy Helgerson, LMFT
