I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist and marriage and family therapist supervisor in Texas with over 9 years of experience working in mental health. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges and life changes. My specialty is focused on severe trauma, whether it be from childhood, adolescence, or adulthood. I also help many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is supportive 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, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive behavior therapy. I will help adapt and mold our work and therapy goals to meet your unique and specific needs. I find that clients typically benefit the most from the messaging and live chat; also phone or video as needed. I am online frequently and look forward to accommodating your schedule as you see fit.
Seeking support out is already a change, right? So let's keep the ball rolling... I will encourage you to work at THIS and I will be with you every step. Change comes from working it, intentional movement, and trying new approaches!
I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Karla Caballero. 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.
She’s the best!
Highly recommend! Very caring and helpful!
Excellent therapist, even through chat, feel
Heard and understood on a deep level. She advice and suggestions are practical but keep you moving forward.
Dr. Caballero is fabulous! She makes you feel very comfortable and at ease right off the bat! She has an amazing ability to quickly digest what you share and identify where the stress/concern is rooted. She offers guidance and actions that are not intimidating and she’s so encouraging. I also love that she’ll check in even if I haven’t posted/journaled in a while. She really cares!
She is attentive and very encouraging, giving great advice all at the same time as listening to understand!
It’s going to be the 3rd session soon and I feel it’s already helped me so much to start having these sessions. I was pretty nervous at first but it’s definitely been worth it
She’s really flexible
Dr. Caballero is exactly the right person to work with me. She is kind and encouraging, but she also pushes me to do the work for myself and to reinforce the work we've done in our sessions. She helps me find my best self when I'm struggling to get there on my own.
You are very responsive and informative.
Dr. Cabellero is amazing. She listens and is very objective. Very responsive too and helps me get to know myself better.
I have been to other therapists before, but Dr. Caballero is the best I've ever had. She listens to me, offers valuable solutions, and answers any questions I may have for her about anything! I was a bit skeptical at first, but as time went on, I felt more comfortable and opened up more. I have seen improvements in my life and thought patterns that I owe the help of Dr. Caballero! I definitely recommend her if you have the opportunity to have her as your therapist!
Dr. Kay has been monumental in my recovery!! I needed way more tools and guidance and unbiased listening and challenging in order to grow towards my goals. Still getting progressively better at CBT, schemas, journaling.. so much!!
Dr. Caballero pushes me to be the best version of myself I can be. Since I started counseling with her I am better able to understand my triggers and live a more positive life. She meets me where I am at and I’m so grateful to her!
The conversations that Dr. Kay and I have helped control my anxiety. Definitely recommend her to those that need someone to talk to.
She's straight and real with you, but not in that unkind, unhelpful way. In a way that helps things click that you've probably heard or read many times. She's super sweet. I've only been with BetterHelp for a couple of weeks, but I would highly recommend it, and I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Caballero is the greatest. It feels like talking to a friend. Her answers to my questions make me reflect and go within myself to figure out some things, and I appreciate that about her. She's thorough and very understanding!
She is amazing. I can’t imagine life without her
I have really enjoyed my sessions with Kay. She tells me like it is and that's exactly what I need. She has given me a lot of tools to reach my goals and she is helping me tremendously. I have referred two people to her so far! I am very pleased!!
Went through a couple different counselors and was feeling very frustrated about all the wasted time. I finally found Kim by reading up on a couple counselors and choosing her. LOVE working with her. She helps me reflect so much and her observations are so insightful.
She’s done so much to help my perspective. Just went a few months without her and am looking forward to getting back into the swing of it.
Haven't been Kay long, but she is genuine and caring. Kay is a great communicator and stays engaged.
I've only been working with Kay for a few weeks and I am so happy I was matched with her. She is absolutely the person to talk to if you want tools to make changes. Looking forward to continuing to work with her.
I love Kay. I feel like I’m talking to someone who completely understands my situations and won’t bullshit when I need a straight answer.
Kay is so great! She really takes the time to understand! She offers really good advice and gives homework...which is awesome! She answers all private messages as if it’s a separate session. I would highly recommend her!
Kay was very understanding and helpful. She explained herself very well and was very approachable! I would recommend her.
I’ve only had one session but Kay really helps me!
She’s great! She gives great reflection and tough love when you need it.
She's seriously the best!
Kay does a wonderful job at getting to know her clients and personalizing her services for that individual. I would not be where I am today without her. She saved me and my sanity.
I love knowing that I have Kay as my psychologist. She helps me maneuver through my life and shows another way of thinking about a situation that I had not thought about, even if I don’t take her advice, she supports me!
Kay is wonderful and has given me the skills to deal with the issues I have.
She is great!
She is very kind and understanding. She has great ideas when it comes to dealing with emotions. Best therapist ive ever had.
I experienced quite a bit of childhood trauma growing up. In the past, I’ve done a lot of work to understand how that trauma influences my life. I typically try to use my experiences in the most positive way possible. I started working with Kay because I’ve recently had a lot of very big life changes, some were really amazing and some were very hard for me. For the first time in my life; I felt that I didn’t have the energy to work through my difficulties and find a positive solution to my problems. I felt hopeless, overwhelmed and beyond help. I felt like my problems were so big I didn’t know where to start or how to approach them. I’ve only had one session with Kay, but after my session that feeling of hopelessness went away. Kay didn’t try to fix my problems and all of my issues are still there, but she did ask questions that helped me change my perspective on several things and that made a very big difference for me right away. Kay’s session made me feel validated and more positive about my ability to handle my challenges. Kay listened with compassion and without judgement. Kay is very good at her job and I highly recommend her!
Kay is the best therapist I’ve ever had. Before Kay treated me, I had gone through a lot of counseling sessions with other therapists in the city and nothing’s changed nor improved in my life. Kay has an amazing approach and is very caring. Not only is she a good listener and a real professional but she goes beyond her role and schedule to help me understand the root of my problems so that I don’t leave any session feeling I’ve wasted my time. She asks very good questions that make me ponder about my current status and whether I’m making a good decision or not. She has a special way of lifting up my spirit when I hit rock bottom , and she never rushes my healing or recovery. For that I am forever grateful to have her as my therapist.
She is the most caring resin I’ve met. I love my sessions with her.
Kay is a fantastic person. She helps lift you when you are at your lowest, your own personal uplifter in your corner. No matter what is going on, she doesn't judge you, and always points out the positive moves you make.
