Karin earned her Bachelor of Applied Arts & Science in Psychology from Dallas Baptist University in 1995.

Karin has spent the past 14 years of her professional career providing services to emotionally disturbed children, and adults with severe and persistent mental illness. She has also worked extensively with survivors of abuse and traumatic events. It is Karin’s belief that individuals have within them the capacity and resources to heal themselves, learn new ways of thinking and responding and to ultimately become the person they truly want to be. She believes that within the counseling relationship and environment, the client is free from external demands, and is able to direct their energy towards healing, and developing and achieving their personal goals. Through the counseling process, clients begin learning and following through on personal desires, goals, and generally feeling more in control and at peace with their own life.
Karin believes that a strong faith and spiritual connection provides the foundation for mental health. She uses a faith-based approach, when appropriate, in combination with research proven counseling techniques to develop the most appropriate plan that addresses the needs of each individual person. In cases where a severe psychiatric disorder is present, she can provide the appropriate counseling and support as well as coordinate care with physicians.
