About me

My name is Kara and I am so excited for the opportunity to work with you! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Tennessee. I have 7 years of experience working with a variety of individuals experiencing concerns such as substance abuse, depression, anxiety, self esteem, life changes and transitions, and relationship challenges. I have also worked with many people who have experienced domestic violence, trauma, and acute crisis.

I use a wide variety of approaches with clients, all of which come down to being client centered. I tailor my approach to each person I work with, using primarily a combination of elements of EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. I am always growing, learning, and adapting my approaches to be the best therapist that I can be.

It has taken so much courage to even get to this point in your journey of self improvement and discovery, applaud yourself for that! The idea of going to therapy can be scary and it keeps a lot of people away. I like to think of going to therapy as a scheduled time in your week to invest in yourself - it doesn't mean that something is wrong with you. Rather, coming to therapy means something is RIGHT with you. You are taking control of your life, admitting that things could be going better, and making steps to achieve your goals. It's okay if you don't know where to start - we can figure it out together. I hope to walk with you and empower you on your new journey.

I am looking forward to getting to know you!

I have been working with Kara for months now and have really enjoyed it. I was very nervous about starting therapy and she helped ease my concerns and made me feel comfortable and heard.

Kara is a fantastic therapist from every angle. She's a great listener and provides excellent feedback. She helps me brainstorm new ways to take care of myself and is always open and non-judgmental. My experience with Kara has been so amazing that I often recommend betterhelp to friends and colleagues.

I’ve never had a ‘therapist’ before and I was a bit nervous that I wouldn’t match up with anyone. It’s amazing that we crossed paths. So far so great.

She takes her time to listen and truly just help her clients with what they bring to her. Atleast, in my personal experience with her. She is awesome.
