Welcome! My name is Kara Bates. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC)and Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) who has had experience in a variety of counseling settings. I offer individual, child, and family counseling.
I provide a holistic approach to counseling by addressing your physical, mental, emotional, and social needs. I approach therapy in an integrative, client-centered way in which my clients are seen as the expert in their lives to ensure the highest quality care is provided. I assist and guide you through interpersonal changes and healing. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques including solution-focused, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, and more. We will begin where you are and tailor your treatment to your needs from there. I promote growth by offering a safe, accepting atmosphere so that you feel heard, validated, and empowered.
It takes courage to reach out and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
