Kara Jakubec

(M.Ed., LPC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with ten years experience in a variety of roles helping families through parenting issues, and three years of dedicated counseling experience specifically focusing on clinical issues. I received my M.Ed. in Human Development Counseling from Vanderbilt University in 2016, and made a career change to become a counselor. While I have spent time as an administrator and consultant in mental health facilities, my clinical counseling focus is anxiety/ depression, parenting struggles, trauma and PTSD, family issues, and substance abuse and recovery. Within my experience as a substance abuse counselor, I have worked with couples and families to understand, approach, and maintain a life of recovery. Having provided therapy and administrative services in the world of adolescent mental health, I have significant experience helping couples understand and empower their child through disagreements and difficult times.

My approach combines a person-centered approach with cognitive and reality therapy in order to let you be the expert about your life as a couple. My goal is to understand where you feel "stuck," help you to envision what you want for your life together, collaborate with you to develop the necessary steps, and provide the counseling along the way to help you achieve your vision.
