Are you feeling exhausted and overwhelmed while trying to hold everything together? You want a rewarding life; however, anxiety, depression and past traumatic experiences can make it difficult. Are you struggling with feelings of anxiety, stress, or worthlessness? Are you feeling helpless and not sure what to do? Do you wonder if things will ever get better? It is possible to find relief. We can work together to develop a unique plan to help you find hope, healing, and peace.
Do you struggle with relationships, regulating your emotions, feelings of shame and guilt, and setting healthy boundaries? Do you feel unsafe in relationships, settings, and/or situations and find yourself hypervigilant for threats? You may be experiencing the effects of Developmental/Complex Trauma which typically results from repeated or multiple traumas experienced in childhood. Usually, these are interpersonal traumas where the caregivers unintentionally or intentionally fail to provide secure attachment, safety, and validation which can wire the developing brain mainly for survival rather than for trust in relationships.
Hi, I am Karen Pace Poland, Texas Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been a counselor for 15 years in the Houston area and recently moved to San Marcos. I enjoy working with clients in the areas of trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. I also have interest in life transitions and how changes cause us to reevaluate areas such as relationships, faith, or personal boundaries.

I work with my clients to provide an individualized and compassionate plan that incorporates techniques and interventions from various theories. We work together to heal and process painful experiences while learning healthy skills to move forward, promote growth and positive changes. Together, we work to achieve optimal balance and wellness.

"We cannot be taught wisdom, we have to discover for ourselves by a journey which no one can undertake for us, and effort which no one can spare us," M. Proust.

Have you noticed that your child is isolated and withdrawn? Is your teenager struggling with self-esteem? Is your adolescent having difficulty communicating? Maybe you have noticed that your child has a decreased interest in activities that they once enjoyed? I can only imagine what this has been like for your child and you as you work to seek support for them.
I believe that each therapeutic relationship is unique and highly personal. My goal is to walk with you along the path of acknowledgement, compassion, growth, healing and change in a safe supportive environment. It is in these moments that we can explore, discover, and develop. We focus on self-awareness, emotions, relationships, coping, and setting goals for the present and future. Other areas of counseling may include focusing on responsibility, meaning of life, your strengths and limitations, self-concept, acceptance, and change. As we walk this journey understand, I can do no work for you, but you do not have to do it alone.

Come together, Overcome pain, Master fears, Focus on your future, Obtain new goals, Realize your worth, Tear down walls!" - Lauren Jones, CLC
I have worked with children and adults for 25+ years. In my practice, I provide an individualized written treatment plan to meet the client's needs. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). CBT focuses on changing an individual's thoughts in order to change his or her behavior and emotional state. It has been proven to be highly effective in many areas such as anxiety and depression. DBT is a modified form of CBT where clients are taught mindfulness (living in the moment), how to tolerate and cope with stress, regulate emotions and develop healthy interpersonal relationships.
I see individuals, couples and families. I have been a counselor since early 2000 and also began conducting psychological and neuropsychological assessments in 2005. My clients’ ages have ranged from 18 months of age all the way up to 82 years. I have worked extensively with a variety of population groups including sports athletes, law enforcement, domestic violence victims, sexual assault survivors, trauma victims, and traumatic brain injured clients as well. I provide many forms of court ordered evaluations for families in crisis. I am a certified trauma specialist. I also provide EMDR therapy. I hold BBA, Ph.D., CFMHE, & CCCE.
Let’s be honest, life is hard. From day to day, things move, shake, shift, and change in directions where everything seems out of control. One moment we feel on top of the world, and the next, we find ourselves spiraled to the bottom. But what if things were different? Would you regain focus? Could you finally do what is important while being stress-free? What would happen if you took the wheel of your life again? With you as the driver, forward is only one direction to change. You can decide the rest.
We are a group practice with diverse capabilities to assist you in transitioning into the life and happiness you deserve. Our job is to help you see what's "Right" about you and convert your strengths into the energy that already exists within you. There's no doubt in our minds that you can do this. If there's some doubt or hesitance in you we can help see you through that tiny, paper thin veil that holds you in a place you hope to move through. No two ways about this... you deserve to choose life. YOU CANNOT BE REPLACED!

Helping People Is A Gift To Others, But Also Myself. Being a Therapist is an honor. I love guiding people towards positive changes and watching them transform their lives. The most rewarding thing about being a therapist is seeing my clients use the skills I teach. I am committed to encouraging you to see healing and transformation are possible. Our Sessions Are Focused On You. Sessions will provide you with the space to explore your thoughts, feelings, and goals. In feeling safe and comfortable, you'll be able to figure things out. It's important to me to provide a non-judgmental space where you can be yourself and focus on goals.
We can’t seem to connect anymore. I’m so tired of fighting I don’t know if I can do it anymore. If I married the love of my life, why do I always feel so alone? We are basically just roommates these days. Do I really even love him/her anymore? We haven’t had sex in I don’t even know how long. If you have said or thought any of these things, I'm so sorry. You are not alone, and it doesn't have to be that way. I see you.
