Kara Purves
MA, MFT, EMDR-Trained Therapist

Kara is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Ohio.  She graduated with her master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Akron. She is also an EMDR-Trained Therapist.


In her own words:


I believe that the person is not the problem; the problem is the problem. When working with clients, I give a safe space free from judgment that allows for exploration, discovery, and open communication. My job is not to fix you; it is to empower you with practical skills that will be helpful in your life.


I work primarily with couples from all walks of life, as well as families and individuals. My areas of focus include trauma, depression, anxiety, communication, intimacy, parenting, addiction & recovery. I meet my clients where they are at in their journey, and then collaborate and construct a treatment plan that fits their individual needs. Just like a great suit or dress, therapy is not a one size fits all and needs customization. To tailor your therapy, I pull from multiple disciplines and approaches so that we can create the best fit for you.


I am welcoming new clients, and offer virtual and in-person sessions. Please reach out with any questions, and let me know if you would like to start transforming with me.
