Kara Collins


I'm passionate about helping clients improve their closest relationships and their inner selves.

With couples: I'll help you identify and change the conflict cycles you can't seem to break out of, while also having you practice new, specific behaviors that will deepen your connection. With issues of infidelity and diminishing trust, we'll focus on accountability, each partner's role and responsibility, and the powerful road to healing and rebuilding trust.

With individuals exploring their relationships: We'll focus on what you bring to the relationship, how you can express your needs to your partner (in a way that actually works!), and how you can successfully ask your partner to change.

As an Experiential and Internal Family Systems therapist, my therapeutic style is based on compassion and sincere respect for the life struggles of others. I will place high importance on your desired outcomes for therapy, while also offering my expertise.
