I’m Cara, a former social worker/healthcare administrator/interior stylist who always dreamed of becoming a counselor after graduating from Texas A&M. Still, life seemed to have a different path. Then COVID happened, and God opened the door and removed all the barriers.
Now in my 50s, I am a master’s level counseling student at Lamar University and currently completing my practicum and internship under the supervision and guidance of Christy Birgen. My goal is to become a licensed marriage and family therapist, and my passion is relationships, both with yourself and others.
I am proof positive that it is never too late to achieve your dreams when you are willing to put in the hard work and have God working through you.
Cara has completed her internship with us is graduating from her Counseling Program! She is currently on break as she takes her exam and pursues licensing as a post-graduate. We are happy to announce that she is returning to our practice in the New Year as an LMFT Associate and will be accepting new clients then. If you would like to be added to Cara’s waitlist, please include that in the message part of the contact form. Thank you!
