Meet our Community of Therapists
PLPCHey! I’m Karissa – a creative-turned-counselor who helps other creatives with the unique mental and emotional issues they face. I’m committed to doing bottom-up therapy with my clients – meaning I want to help you find the reasons behind the day-to-day struggles you experience and help you find deep and lasting healing.
I work best with individuals who have insight and self-awareness but have struggled to convert that knowledge into healing and lasting change, because I’ve struggled with the same thing and I’ve done the work to find my way out of that head-and-heart tension. I can’t say your path will be the same as mine, and I can’t do your work for you – but I’m a great person to have along your way.

Life is messy. It requires work that sometimes feels impossible. It is my goal to help clients identify the aspects of their life that they wish to celebrate, and those that they wish to change. Through compassion, understanding, and humor, we will work together in a judgment-free space to help you become your healthiest and happiest self. If you are feeling depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, confused, unmotivated, or just plain tired of the day-to-day, please know that you are not alone in your feelings. You can find a better path, and I will be there to help.
PLPCI began my journey into the mental health field at the University of Missouri – St. Louis with a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology. Afterwards, I completed my Masters of Arts in Counseling degree at Lindenwood University. During that time, I was an intern at CCCA – which led to me to being a private practice clinician there upon graduating.
There are so many reasons people choose to see a counselor. Whether it be stress, relationship struggles, depression, or grief – there is always something that one might be struggling with. My goal is to be the person to help you navigate through all of life’s transitions in a supportive, trusting, and non-judgmental way.
