Hi, I’m Kara!
Kara Nassour, LPC, NCC
I decided to become a therapist after experiencing anxiety and depression as a teenager. Being the only LGBTQ person I knew was challenging, too! But I found people fascinating, and when I grew up, I wanted to help others who were going through the same struggles I did.
My Approach as a Therapist
My form of therapy is collaborative yet practical:
- Listening. You need someone who will understand your feelings and take you seriously.
- Finding your strengths. By discovering what you’re doing right, you can lean into it and solve problems in a way that’s natural for you.
- Building your skills. You’ll get practical exercises and coping tools for everyday challenges.
- Respecting your identity. You deserve to be treated like a normal person, regardless of your race, gender, religion or orientation. And if social issues are weighing on you, you can bring them up in therapy, too.
- Feedback from you. We’ll review which tools are helping you and which ones aren’t. If a method isn’t working, or if you’re not comfortable trying it, we’ll do something else.
If this sounds like your kind of therapy, drop me a line!
