Welcome to Better Help! I'm sure you're wondering how this works and whether it's the right fit for you. I know I felt the same way when I first came to Better Help.
My name is Keli Reams, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Pennsylvania. I earned my Master of Social Work degree, specializing in Rural Social Work Practice, from California University of Pennsylvania in 2013. I've worked in many different settings with individuals and families who have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, family problems, trauma/abuse, addictions of all kinds, relationships/parenting and more. Over the past 6 years as a clinician, my experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counseling by far is the connection and comfort you feel with the person you choose to share your personal struggles, especially when that comes to opening up about relationships. All relationships are a two-way street and take a certain amount of effort to maintain and I believe I can assist those looking into improving their relationships with one another. It can be something small that both parties are overlooking or even those facing permanent separation. I believe we can all grow through challenging experiences by increasing our self-awareness. Sometimes another person, one who isn't in our immediate circle, can offer a perspective or additional support, that give us perspective on a difficult situation when we feel stuck. It would be my privilege to be that person for you. We all want to be able to share our personal truths and be accepted and understood. I believe it's very important to be open-minded and non-judgmental when someone shares their personal story or experiences with me. Our relationship with self and others has worth and is useful to explore and build upon in counseling.
You are welcome to message me anytime through Better Help. The frequency with which you can have access to a counselor to work through day to day emotions and problem solving is extremely beneficial for most and a nice change from traditional outpatient counseling. I usually check messages twice each day, seven days per week. I offer messaging, live chat and phone sessions with limited availability in the evenings and weekends. Please note that what you see in my calendar may not reflect my only availability so you always want to check that out with me through messaging first.
I look forward to working with you!
