"Dr. Karg is a scientist-practitioner who offers evidence-based consultations and treatments in a nurturing, supportive, and warm therapeutic environment." -- Client testamony

I believe in the power of vulnerability and clients' ability to heal themselves with the help of a skillful therapist who is walking on the journey with them. I encourage clients to embrace personal responsibility and tap into your natural tendency to heal. My authenticity, deep respect and compassion for my clients shines through in my work. This commitment to caring offers an ideal environment for creating a strong therapeutic alliance, which is the best predictor of therapeutic outcomes.

I thoroughly enjoy going deep with my clients, and am incredibly grateful to bear witness to my clients' miracles of growth and recovery each day.

More Info About My Practice

I specialize in brief, solution-focused treatment of psychological, emotional, and behavioral difficulties among adults and adolescents.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Have you struggled with anxiety, depression, trauma, or substance use and are ready to start working on it?
Does worrying about things keep you up at night or distract you during the day?
Is some event from your past causing you problems in your present life?
Do you or does anyone else have a problem with your substance use?
Are you going through a difficult time and need some help with this transition?
Have you tried therapy but are feeling "stuck" in your recovery?
Are you committed to your personal growth and ready to be vulnerable and go deeper?

I specialize in brief, solution-focused treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma, and substance abuse. I'm also highly adept at helping clients navigate transitions such as divorce, uncoupling, career changes, and bereavement, as well as adjustments to environmental stressors such as trauma, illness, interpersonal conflict, and job pressure. I work with individuals, couples, families, and groups.

Dr. Karg uses cutting-edge techniques that can help you quickly make progress or move beyond some problems that are not getting better in your current situation.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

My practice is solution-focused: Therapy sessions and homework assignments are focused on developing and practicing new and different skills to help patients gain knowledge and skills for how to think, feel, and respond in difficult situations, how to let go of the past, and how to maintain effective relationships. Psychotherapy actually modifies your neural pathways by weakening the pathways of old habits and strengthening the pathways of your new ways of being.
