Kari Whatley


About Me

My name is Kari Whatley, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Alabama. I currently operate a private counseling practice that serves a wide range of clients struggling with depression, anger management, anxiety, relationship/couples issues, and other life challenges. I have a bachelors in Religion and believe that each person was created with a special purpose and plan for their lives.

My approach is to help clients find the tools they need to live the life they are looking for and to heal from hurts and wounds. I believe in concrete, practical solutions for dealing with life’s challenges and difficult seasons. I focus on action-oriented therapies that provide measurable improvement and increased self-awareness. I will be systematic and intentional in equipping you with the tools you need to lead a more fulfilling life.

It takes courage to seek out changes or support in difficult times, and I applaud each person willing to take those important steps. I believe that each client is the expert on their own life and has the personal insights that they need to make important changes.

I have an encouraging counseling style rooted in behavior and reality therapies. My hope is to help equip you with the tools needed to find hope and reach your goals.

You can do this! You have already started by making the decision to ask for help. I look forward to working with you and creating a personalized plan for your specific and unique needs.

Kari is a very understanding lady who listens attentively and keenly. She's helped get some perspective into matters that weren't very clear to me and has inspired me to rethink my life and my history and understand myself better. I highly appreciate the time she's given me so far.

I appreciate Kari's listening ear and wisdom. She lets me talk, repeats back to me what she hears me say and offers good advice. I would recommend her to anyone.

Kari is very helpful in attending my needs. I felt like I was about to breakdown when I downloaded this app. Her responses, materials, and our calls assist me in facing my anxiety and finding ways to cope. I feel like I’m being coached. I would recommend her to anyone who seeks assistance.

Kari has a deep understanding of human struggles and relational problems on all areas off spiritual, emotional, physical. She is also prayerful and has an evident deeply rooted faith, which makes all the difference to me.

I’m new to this therapy idea, and I haven’t been involved in a lot of different therapists ... but I would highly recommend Kari Wheatley to anyone who needs another person to talk to. She is a very caring person and she’s easy to talk to. She also will try her best to help you if she can. Thankfully, she prayed with me at the end of our first telephone session. I’m very happy to have her for my counselor.
