Karen Colvin , LPC
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with Supervision privilege licensed in the state of Louisiana with over 10 years experience as a licensed counselor. I work with individuals struggling with various life challenges to include: anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationships, and grief/loss. I also have experience helping individuals with ADD navigate school or work situations. I can also help individuals, such as college students or non-traditional students returning to school, with academic concerns such as adjustment issues, how to study for college setting, and time management.
I believe the relationship between the therapist and the client is the most important element of therapy. I consider building rapport and trust with the individual as essential in the therapeutic process. I help individuals identify and establish their goals for therapy and work with individual toward accomplishing those goals. I use client- centered therapy along with Solution Focus Brief Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) to help individuals. I design each individual’s therapy to the unique and specific goals of the individual.
I also have experience with social anxiety, religion/spiritual concerns, addiction, forgiveness, communication, compassion fatigue, academic concerns, and career issues.
I look forward to working with you.

Karen has helped me learn numerous things about my issues and about myself which have helped me get through some things. We still have some work to do but we are heading in the right direction. I am grateful she has been honest and caring with me.

I was a little apprehensive as this was my first ever counseling experience and it would be virtual rather than in person. But Karen helped me to feel comfortable from the very start and throughout the few sessions I’ve had with her so far. She responds very quickly to messages and is just wonderful overall.

I was very skeptical of therapy before seeking it, but Karen has changed my mind on it. I really feel so relieved after talking to her. I will continue my therapy with her and keep opening up more as things progress. So far so good.
