Welcome to Counseling by Kara

I am Here to Listen

    Who I am

    Kara Palasz, MA, LPC, CSAC


    Compassionate, intuitive, and empathetic licensed professional counselor specializing in treating mental health and/or substance use disorders; grief; trauma; relationship struggles; LGBTQIA+ related concerns including gender identity; and getting people “unstuck”.  

    Treatment focus


    My focus is to help individuals heal and grow in self awareness and acceptance.  I achieve this by providing a neutral safe space; listening to your concerns; and customizing a plan for treatment that helps you reach your goals.


    Depression & Anxiety


    Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, I am able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. 


    Trauma & PTSD


    Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. 




    Relationship counseling can be beneficial to those who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions provide a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.  I welcome all types of relationships (family, friends, couples, closed and/or open poly groups) and strive to maintain a positive, inclusive, non-heteronormative atmosphere at all times.
