About Me

I am a licensed counselor in Texas with over 6 years of experience working as a school mental health counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and humanistic counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Karissa is an amazing therapist. She makes me feel great about myself and holds me accountable for working on my mental health. Her techniques have helped me to decrease anxiety and feel overall better. I love being able to talk and laugh with her.

Karissa has been really helpful. She is helping me make some changes in my thinking. She has given me tips to help me challenge my thoughts. I enjoy our sessions and can see changes already.
