Coming from a traumatic background I've had to do a great deal of my own healing. Starting the healing journey was a very difficult process, however, in identifying a great support system and seeking therapeutic services on my own I was able to experience tremendous growth and change. You are not alone and it is possible to experience healthy change and heal old wounds. I am eclectic in my therapeutic approach and use a blend of Cognitive Behavioral, Motivational Interviewing, EMDR, Play Therapy Techniques, Integrative Gestalt Therapy, Trauma-Focused CBT, and psycho-education to individuals ages two and up.

I believe that finding the right therapist to assist you in your journey is often like finding a pair of shoes that has the right fit. This process can be arduous and can deter people from pursuing counseling. A key part of my clinical practice is to build rapport with my clients to assist them with feeling comfortable sharing what can be painful topics and issues. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is one of the most influential factors in assisting individuals to be successful in therapy and reach their goals. I especially enjoy working with members of the LGBTQIA+ community as I identify as an LGBTQIA+ individual.

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom" (Anais Nin). You know when it's time to make a change - whether the struggle is depression, anxiety, past trauma, or perhaps a painful relationship - there comes a tipping point when you are ready to make that first step toward hope.

Hi there! I am so glad you are here. I acknowledge that finding a therapist can feel like an overwhelming task, and therapy itself can feel intimidating. My desire is to offer you a safe space where you can begin your journey towards growth and where you feel comfortable navigating the big emotions that life can bring up. I completed my clinical internship at a behavioral health hospital working alongside children and teens in both residential and acute care settings. I have also spent time working in a school with youth on the spectrum.

Everyone experiences trauma at some point in their lives. Anxiety, anger, forgetfulness, fear, sadness, survivor’s guilt, a diminished sense of self and feelings of helplessness are just some of the emotions experienced after a disturbing life-altering event . Rather than trauma, maybe you’re just feeling overwhelmed and stifled. Perhaps the joy you once felt has diminished, and you feel like it’s a struggle to get through a day. Maybe you’ve tried to make changes but find yourself falling back into the same old patterns. Are you going through a challenging transition and needing emotional support and guidance?

Life can be hard. Don't struggle alone - I'm here to help! I have 13+ years of experience working with young children, parents, families, and those unsure of their parenting future. My specialty is supporting parents (or potential future parents) to process their own childhood and family dynamics, in order to help them make the best decisions they can for their families. I love working with parents before, during, and after pregnancy, as well as using dyadic therapy for parent/child to process trauma together. Regardless of your parenting status, I can support you to process relational dynamics and trauma from your family of origin.

Kara meets her clients where they are, in their journey, so they can have a positive and meaningful working relationship within the therapeutic realm.

Through this energy, we are able to grow and shift through self-awareness, in order to develop lasting changes. Kara enjoys working with teens and young adults, as well as adults who are working through a transitional period in their lives, be it divorce, a new job, welcoming a new baby or another new member to the family.

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by! Do you ever think to yourself "What's wrong with me?" or "How come I cannot snap out of it?" Let me tell you, there is nothing wrong with you and you simply cannot snap out of it. There is a lot of social stigmas when we have emotional struggles and believe or not, we internalize these beliefs. Sometimes we resist seeking treatment because it can be seen as weakness because of underlying trauma or experience. This worsens over time whether you are depressed, anxious, fearful, frustrated, resentful, or angry. I believe a lot of us want to have understanding, support, empathy, and new ways of coping.

What type of Colorado Springs mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Colorado Springs?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
