I have worked with a wide variety of clients and look forward to getting to know you and the difficulties that you struggle with.  Many of my clients have been able to successfully manage:

- Generalized Anxiety

- Depression

-Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

- Bipolar Disorder

- Eating Disorders 

- Impulse Control Disorders

- Adjustment Disorders (difficulty adapting to life changes such as divorce, parenthood, illness, etc.)

- Stress management 

I encourage client's to attempt to manage their symptoms first without medication.  Depending on the severity of the symptoms and the life interference that is taking place, I do recommend seeking psychiatric help in addition to counseling, when necessary.  Hopefully, those of you looking into counseling recognize that medication alone cannot solve your problems.  There are often harmful behavior patterns and ways of thinking that keep us stuck in an unhappy/unhealthy place that can only beaddressed through counseling.  

My practice is not limited to those illnesses listed above.  Please contact me at karawilliamscounseling@gmail.com with any questions .
