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.

Ask Kari: My wife won’t let anyone babysit our kids — what can I do to get some alone time with her?

Ask Kari: My wife won’t let anyone babysit our kids — what can I do to get some alone time with her?

I am desperate for alone time with my wife. We have two children, ages 2 and 4, and she is a great mom but she will absolutely not let anyone babysit the kids so that we can have a date night. At first, I was understanding, but four years in, I have lost my patience. Help me, I am lonely in the marriage even though we are together all the time (but it’s with our kids 24/7). What do you suggest I do?

Ask Kari: My coworker has bad body odor — help!

Ask Kari: My coworker has bad body odor — help!

I need help with a very weird situation that is happening at work. My colleague is a nice guy, but he stinks! He has both personal body odor going on, and bad breath. How do I causally mention to him that his body odor is offensive and that’s why people avoid him? I have offered him a breath mint more than once, thinking that he would take the hint, but it did not work.

“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. Make living well 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!"
