About me

My name is Kari Perez and I am a licensed clinical professional counselor in Maryland. I graduated from Loyola University with my Master's in Science - Counseling Psychology in 2011. I started out working for four years in a long term residential facility for adults struggling with co-occurring addiction and mental health diagnosis. In this role, I have experience with addiction, anxiety, depression, trauma, and helping work on life skills. After this, I moved to working with children and their families in home settings for several years. In this setting I developed the skills to work with the family unit as a whole. In family situations, I believe that whoever is being identified as the client with diagnosis is often just a piece in a larger dynamic. My goal is to try to support and address the family as a whole to help change the dynamic creating problematic symptoms.

I utilize a multi-modal approach, being able to pull from multiple theories to find the strategies that best fit the person and situation. My strongest belief in a therapeutic relationship is that the client is the expert in their experience and I am there as a partner to try to understand as best I can and provide support. I use my experience to help clients create and meet the goals they desire. I enjoy working with kids through adults who are looking for help becoming their best self.
