Hi, I’m Kari

I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist who provides support and practical feedback to help patients move their lives forward.

I have a Doctorate of Social Work. I am the previous owner and clinical director of a private mental health group practice that had over 20,000 patient visits before transitioning from a group practice into Kari O’Neill Counseling in 2022. I am an affiliated medical staff member with Swedish Issaquah.

Voted an Issaquah Highlands Connections Newspaper fan favorite.

Ask Kari: How can I motivate my adult daughter to move out?

Ask Kari: How can I motivate my adult daughter to move out?

My adult daughter lives with us, but she is driving me crazy. She graduated from college but is not motivated to use her degree for a career. She works two part-time jobs (she only works 20-25 hours a week), but mostly watches Netflix all day. What can I do to motivate her to move on and start her life?

Ask Kari: How Can We Stop the Parental “Money Train”?

My daughter is married to a man who will not get a job. They have three children, she works full-time but for the past three years he has made no effort to find a job or keep one if and when he does get hired. During this time period, we have gotten a call at the end of each month asking us for money. At first, my husband and I offered our full support, but now we resent that we work and then pass on some of our income to them. What do you recommend we do to stop this situation?

How can I best help her?

“My goal is to help people see their worth”

 

–Kari O’Neill
What I want patients to know:

1. They matter

2. Their feelings are normal

3. They can move their life forward

4. Say the whole thing

5. Living well is a daily practice

"Dr. O’Neill provides a safe space to talk out concerns. She gives me actionable ideas to work through challenging issues."

“Kari’s support, experience, and expertise helped me directly to deal with a huge family problem. The jury isn’t in yet as far as the results of my actions, but at least I know I did the right thing for my family member. I am so grateful!”

"She is open, honest, caring, very easy to talk to."

"Always so thoughtful and kind!! And has helped me a lot with my issues!"

"Kari is like visiting with a friend, an honest friend. Someone who challenges you to see a situation or circumstance for what it really is and then helps you troubleshoot through it. Guiding you to healthy new boundaries and giving you the confidence to keep those boundaries in place."

"Kari is an excellent health care provider and I would recommend her services to anyone I know."

"Kari has been not only my therapist but good friend. Her help has given me a much more positive attitude about life problems. She always has the answers I need to hear. I highly recommend Kari!"
