Kara Mireles

Practitioner Outpatient Services

Professional Philosophy

I believe in attending to the whole person: body, mind/soul, and spirit. This body belongs to a system and that system impacts the individual. The balance that an individual maintains greatly impacts their life and the systems that they are a part of. The therapeutic process should attend to the whole person, and the woundedness that we can carry. My goal for clients in the therapeutic process is to balance being in the present, attending to the past, and making goals for the future.

Specialty Areas

I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, working with ages 11-17. I have a firm grasp on how to integrate spirituality into the therapeutic process, due to my education.
