Karis Counseling LLC has served Houston Individuals and Couples since 2001. Quality care, proven success approach.
Considering Therapy... requires the courage to honestly assess the areas of your life that inhibit you and your loved ones from achieving a productive and happy home. For almost 15 years, Kathy Pardue of Karis Counseling in Houston, Texas has worked with couples and individuals to restore a healthy, constructive interpersonal dynamic by working closely with clients in order to understand the complex factors that affect our relationships, and gives them the tools to make healthy, productive decisions to help achieve your fullest potential.
True healing takes place within the relationship, not through insight alone. As we come to understand our own narrative, we begin to see not only ourselves, but also how others perceive us. Stress in a relationship can only be resolved through a partnership, and through a renewed understanding of others and ourselves, hope and encouragement quickly replace frustration and despair..
Integrative Approach. A Counseling Plan designed for your individual needs and personality...
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy addresses problems in terms of how we think and helps us to identify healthy emotions and behaviors. You may be unaware of some distorted thinking patterns contributing to anxiety and depression. Therapy helps identify these mental conclusions and discern if they are based on truth or misperception.
Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT, Johnson) is a successful approach for couples in restoring emotional intimacy. In order to safely express our vulnerabilities and emotional concerns, our relationship bonds must be strong enough to endure our insecurities in order to honestly and productively address the aggressive behaviors that threaten mutual understanding.
Solution-Focused Therapy are sessions dedicated to addressing specific conflicts that inhibit a productive relationship. Together, we identify our conflicts, and the root cause of the behaviors that exacerbate these challenges, and restore hope through personal responsibility and positive decision making. Acceptance of other’s behavior or setting boundaries comes naturally as we recognize what is beyond our control. Your overall well-being may include referrals to physicians for treatment of biochemical issues.

Trust and communication... are restored as resentment is healed. The endless cycle of defensiveness is replaced with validation, mutual respect, and forgiveness. As both partners confess & forgive, peace is restored. Suspicion falls away and freedom to be yourself with each other returns. Emotional honesty is addressed and critical.
Therapy helps unmarried couples... to focus on enjoying the relationship rather than power or insecurity from lack of commitment. Insecurities are normal, but demanding love destroys the gift of Love. We explore how and why you can live securely with or without your partner in the future. Then, you can love extravagantly without fear or extreme self-protection.
Continued Curiosity... in the relationship is critical in avoiding isolation, chronic conflict, and cheating. Asking questions rather than assuming is a habit encouraged and practiced in therapy sessions.
Emotional Intimacy can be restored... despite the past, if both partners choose to work on it. Infidelity, finances, parenting, extended family, and addiction do not have to be deal breakers. Your marriage is sacred and worth fighting for.
Disconnection and Isolation... are inevitable with responsibilities and schedules that compete for your time together. You can learn to date again.
Couples are helped to recreate their connection thru validation of thoughts and feelings. Each spouse is heard in a non-judgmental atmosphere and learns to listen with empathy. Both own more than a grain of truth, and both are validated in sessions. Therapy is not about sides, but surfacing truth...
As resentment is healed, forgiveness happens. The focus shifts to the qualities that attracted you, and passion returns. You can become best friends and lovers with your own spouse.
Life can be overwhelming. Stress and hurtful life events deplete us of energy and confidence. It takes courage to address the issues and seek help.
Therapy brings hope as options and goals are explored. Processing alone can lead to more isolation and further confusion. You can heal from abuse, addiction, anger, depression, divorce, unhealthy relationships, codependence, and eating disorders. Healing happens in safe relationship, not thru insight alone.
