About me

I am licensed in Texas with 29 years of professional social work experience. I help clients with stress and anxiety, family conflicts, parenting, trauma and abuse, workplace issues, and more. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I am very client-centered and outgoing.

It takes immense courage when taking the first step to heal and discuss blocks that interfere with life fulfillment. I am here to support you and guide you towards your self-determined goal. Niche populations include: healthcare workers, first responders, lawyers, other counselors, military, parents, caregivers, men, and postpartum women.

I am warm, enthusiastic, caring and friendly. I have a great sense of humor. I love working with people. I am also a huge animal lover. Every once in a while, my dog Golden Wizard May offer a supportive bark; my hope is that you do not have to hear him cite a neighborhood violation (his arch nemesis is the department of sanitation).

My greatest interest is learning about you and helping you with whatever you want to achieve.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Karen Possessky. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Karen combines the best attributes of being a seasoned professional with that of being an honest and experienced human being. She listens intently, she processes deeply, and she makes correlations and connections that benefit and improve quality of life.
If you are honest and open and can communicate with Karen, she will bring answers to the table and make solutions available to you. I recommend Karen for anyone trying to improve themselves and find another level of happiness in their life.

She’s very attentive and helpful. I’ve only just begun this journey but she’s already started changing my way of thinking.

Karen is amazing person/healer she understands me and rephrased everything where I can understand. She is by far an amazing therapist I wish I could have met her along time ago. Thank you for everything

Karen is absolutely amazing. She responds in a timely manner, will always get back to you that day at a reasonable hour, and will always make sure you feel heard. I never have liked therapy but I always look forward to our sessions.

Karen Possessky is THE BEST! She’s the best therapist I’ve gone to out of the 3 I’ve seen prior to her. She listens, provides tools & resources, and helps clearly define what I want to accomplish and practical ways to cope & be successful.
