About Karen Colvin's service

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with Supervision privilege licensed in the state of Louisiana with over 10 years experience as a licensed counselor. I work with individuals struggling with various life challenges to include: anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationships, and grief/loss. I also have experience helping individuals with ADD navigate school or work situations. I can also help individuals, such as college students or non-traditional students returning to school, with academic concerns such as adjustment issues, how to study for college setting, and time management. I believe the relationship between the therapist and the client is the most important element of therapy. I consider building rapport and trust with the individual as essential in the therapeutic process. I help individuals identify and establish their goals for therapy and work with individual toward accomplishing those goals. I use client- centered therapy along with Solution Focus Brief Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) to help individuals. I design each individual’s therapy to the unique and specific goals of the individual. I also have experience with social anxiety, religion/spiritual concerns, addiction, forgiveness, communication, compassion fatigue, academic concerns, and career issues. I look forward to working with you.
