Kara Burr specializes in play and art therapy in her work with children and adolescents dealing with abuse, neglect, body image, mood disorders, anger/rage, negative self-concept, problematic school behavior, and grief issues. She also works with adopted children and their families to facilitate the bonding process and help them form trust-based attachments.
She has a BS in Psychology from Texas Christian University, and a Masters in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. Kara volunteered with Texas Christian University’s Hope Connection, assisting adoptive families in forming trust-based attachments with their adopted children. In addition to individual counseling, her clinical experience includes leading process and skills groups with children and adolescents.
Kara’s chief desire in counseling is to walk graciously alongside her clients, gently challenge them, help them restore a positive sense of self, and build authentic relationships with family and others.
