Therapy looks different for every person and Karmella will work with you to determine what it needs to look like for you in order for you to accomplish your goals.
Menatal Health concerns that we treat include:
Suicidal Ideation and Self Harm
And other concerns as well. We also offer the T.O.V.A. (The Test of Variables of Attention). The T.O.V.A aids in the assessment, evaluation, and treatment for attention-deficits including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). We also offer Brainspotting. Brainspotting locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma. Brainspotting is effective for a wide variety of conditions and is particularly effective with trauma-based situations, helping to identify and heal underlying trauma that contributes to anxiety, depression, and other behavioral conditions.
I have been a therapist for almost 19 years and all of that time has been working here in the River Valley Area. Wanting to help others has always been a huge part of who I am and I want my clients to understand that we are on this journey together. In 2019 a door opened up for me to be a part of the wonderful organization here at STEPS. Walking through those doors for the first time I felt right at home and knew it was where I was supposed to be without a doubt. Since that time the counseling program was started and I am now the Executive Director which has been a great honor. We are here to provide that "hand up" to the clients that we work with and I strive to be better and do better for my clients and my staff each and every day.
