Karissa Roy, M.A., LCDC, LPC
Hello there. Be proud of yourself for making it this far and taking the steps to find a safe place to express yourself and to find a counselor that is a good fit for you. I am a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC) and a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern. I have a wide range of experience since 2014 of working with individuals who struggle with grief, trauma, sexual identity, PTSD, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, depression, substance abuse, relapse prevention, and much more. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming and am EMDR trained.
I utilize a person-centered therapeutic style that focuses on your needs and utilizes a variety of techniques to meet you where you are at. I value listening to you and learning from you because you are the expert about yourself! I tend to focus on identifying negative patterns or thought processes (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy lens), finding realistic coping skills, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness techniques. My drive is to help you discover your strengths and things you did not realize about yourself while providing a safe, non-judgmental, and supportive environment.
