My name is Karissa. I've been a therapist working with teenagers and adults since 2016. I have worked in multiple settings including outpatient therapy clinics, college campuses, middle and high school based mental health, and day treatment programs. I have worked with individuals experiencing a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, identity concerns, and relationship concerns. I love working with individuals of all ages. I enjoy getting to know different personalities and helping to identify and highlight each person's uniqueness and strengths. I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches including person-centered, strength based, solution focused, and cognitive behavioral therapy. I really believe that everyone is doing their best with what they have but sometimes struggle to identify their direction. I want to help you find that direction again. I want to help you eliminate the unhealthy things in your life to help you live a healthier lifestyle. I want to help you create a life for yourself that you are proud of and invested in. Most importantly, I want to hear what makes you who you are so we can use your strengths to help you do all of those things.

Karissa has been really supportive helping me through a tough breakup. She listens and never makes me feel like I'm being judged. The advice she has given me has helped me greatly and has given me a new perspective I might not have otherwise found.
Karissa is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. She has helped me through a really rough time in my life, she listens well and provides excellent solutions for long term mental health management.

Karissa has been wonderful. She's helped me to become aware of a lot of patterns that I wasn't seeing in my life and has given me concrete advice to deal with these.
Great listener and grasps my core ideas precisely. And great solutions too.
Karissa is wonderful! She responds in a timely fashion and always offers wonderful advice. Even within a couple weeks I've noticed an improvement in myself. I would recommend her to anyone in need!
