Kara Werner, LPC-Temp, MA, NCC
(Accepting self-pay and Cigna)
My name is Kara Werner and I am a temporary licensed counselor working toward licensure as an LPC-MHSP in TN. I am eclectic in my approach to therapy. I practice being client-centered and meet clients where they are. I believe the therapeutic relationship is the foundation and ultimate predictor of how effective therapy will be. I will work diligently to build rapport with my clients. I can work with you on a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, OCD, trauma, and grief. I’m comfortable working with ages 16 and up. I will meet with and provide couples and family therapy if that need should arise. As a counselor, I don’t pretend to have everything together, but I will walk alongside you during your time of need to support, cheer you on, challenge you, comfort you, and listen to you.
Approaches to therapy I use include EMDR therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Narrative Therapy. I consider myself skilled in helping clients identify where they need to have better boundaries and struggle-predicting around implementation of those necessary boundaries. If you have negative life events that have impacted your self-worth, increased symptoms that have made it difficult to function day-to-day, or need support, please consider booking an appointment with me.
