She’s super understanding and can put my feelings into words that I can’t quite figure out for myself. I really like talking to her!

Kara is easy to talk with, she makes me comfort to share my feelings and experiences. She is supportive . She provides direction, uses different means in her therapy. I would strongly recommend her as therapist.

Work with me!
