My Approach to Helping
"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.

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.
