My name is Kara Pederson, LICSW.

"My path to becoming a therapist began with my own mental health struggles as an adolescent paired with an intense curiosity to understand human behavior and “why we do the things we do.” My life, education, and work experiences led to me developing a personal passion for mental health support and education. Since 2019, I have been providing tele-therapy helping individuals struggling with various mental health difficulties with a special focus on ADHD, mood disorders, anxiety, and trauma related disorders. My own experiences have given me a unique perspective and a passion for helping others in similar situations"

Hello! I'm Kara Pederson, LICSW. I am a licensed therapist providing online psychotherapy services to adolescents and adults. I specialize in working with clients struggling with ADHD, trauma related disorders, and anxiety/depression. I am currently completing the requirements to obtain my ADHD-CCSP (ADHD Specialist Certification) and hope to use this additional knowledge to provide a unique approach to clients using a combination of therapeutic approaches and daily life management skills. I understand that seeking therapy can be a difficult decision, and I want to make this process as comfortable and supportive as possible for you. I believe in a collaborative approach to therapy, where we work together to explore your unique experiences and develop personalized strategies to help you overcome challenges and achieve your goals. In our sessions, we will work together to explore your concerns, identify patterns and obstacles, and develop practical strategies to help you move forward. Various approaches I typically utilize include cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and trauma informed practices. I strive to provide additional resources and content to clients for further practice of skills outside of session time. I believe that therapy is a powerful tool for healing and personal growth, and I hope to provide a safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore your inner world and work towards your goals. If you are seeking a therapist who is compassionate, skilled, and committed to your well-being, I would be honored to work with you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a consultation. I look forward to hearing from you and supporting you on your journey.
