More about me
Years in Practice: 5
Hi there! My name is Kara, and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in California.
I believe in taking an approach that is fluid and open to change based on what works best for my clients. Therefore, this is a safe, judgment-free space, and I value your feedback. I encourage you to come as you are and wherever that may be on your journey, I'm willing to meet you there and support you in reaching your desired goals.
I have a master's degree from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles where I have stayed and built my practice. My experience over the last five years includes working as a school-based therapist to children and adolescents, working with adults as individuals and couples at a private practice, and facilitating a group and individual therapy at an addiction treatment clinic. Prior to my work as a therapist, I was a personal trainer and I worked abroad teaching English; therefore, I have a lot of experience connecting and sharing information and skills with people of all ages and needs.
I use an eclectic approach to therapy, using various techniques including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, solution-focused therapy, person-centered therapy, rapid resolution therapy, psychodynamic informed, psychoeducation, and art and play therapy. I'm also a perinatal mood and anxiety disorder therapist and a strong proponent for incorporating mindfulness into treatment. I emphasize the importance of communication skills within all treatment models as a way to cultivate stronger relationships with the self and others.
Let me know if you have any questions or if I can clarify any information for you. I understand that finding the right therapist can take time, and I come from an understanding that not all dynamics will fit. As such, I will always be open to helping you find the right fit for you as my goal is to help you receive the best care possible.
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
