Karen Welker

(LPC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), licensed by the state of Texas. I have mostly worked with survivors of physical, emotional, and/or sexual abuse in multiple settings, including residential, partial-hospitalization programs, and domestic violence shelters. I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I use warm, individualized, empowering, person-first, and trauma-informed methods to help my clients with multiple conditions and diagnoses, including depression, anxiety, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, substance use, Adjustment Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and Oppositional Defiant Disorder.

I believe that our brains are powerful and fascinating. I love helping individuals understand more about their brain, how to harness the power of our mind and body, and provide proactive help to find hope and healing. I find it an honor and a privilege to join life-changing journeys to discover ways of “retraining the brain.” Taking that first step on this journey is a big one. Let’s make it together.

Karen is an amazing resource and I'm so thankful I have her in my corner. Having been in traditional therapy previously, I have to say having someone that you can message 24/7 and talk to via phone makes it so much easier to be consistent in my therapy. She has given me great tools and insight to manage my depression.

Karen is kind and compassionate. I feel that she is very good at meeting me where I'm at, letting my feelings and needs direct conversation. She is super knowledgeable and but still very human and real.

It’s only been 3 weeks and Karen has helped me make progress that I’ve put off for years! She’s very warm and insightful. It’s easy to share my struggles in a nonjudgmental environment. I would highly recommend Karen to my closest family and friends!
