Hello and welcome! I understand that finding the right therapist can be a daunting task, but I'm here to help make the process easier for you. My name is Karin (She/Her/Ella), and I'm a bilingual (English/Spanish) Licensed Professional Counselor Associate, under the supervision of Jennifer Buffalo, MA, LPC-S, LMFT, NCC. With a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from A&M University-Central Texas, and a Bachelor's degree in Neuroscience from UT Austin, I specialize in helping adolescents and adults navigate life transitions, anxiety, self-esteem issues, depression, and stress.
As a first-generation Latina, I am committed to helping BIPOC individuals access therapy. I believe that by peeling back the layers of pressure from society, identity issues, relationship issues, and generational trauma, my clients can take steps towards healing and empowerment, while honoring their unique backgrounds.
My approach to therapy is integrative, utilizing Person-Centered, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy to help my clients achieve their personal goals. I also incorporate mindfulness, self-compassion, psychoeducation, and art to support my clients' well-being. My goal is to provide a safe, comfortable, and non-judgmental space where you can feel affirmed and heard while exploring the way you think and feel, understanding how you experience life, and nurturing your relationships.
When I am not wearing my therapist hat, you can find me engaging in my favorite form of self-care, drinking a cup of tea with my massive Great Pyrenees, my goofy Labrador, my sassy Shih Zu, and my fearless black cat.
I'm passionate about helping you address the barriers that are hindering your personal growth, and working collaboratively towards achieving a fulfilling life. If you think I could be a good fit for you, I invite you to contact me for a complimentary 30-minute consultation. Let's begin this journey of self-discovery together and work towards managing what feels unmanageable.
