My name is Kara Savage and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Michigan. I was drawn to a career in counseling out of a passion to help others overcome the challenges of life and thrive despite their circumstances.
I earned a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Indiana Wesleyan University. I am certified in EMDR and I am currently pursuing certification in Focused Marital Therapy.

Working closely with clients to problem-solve enables them to explore solutions that help guide them to growth and positive change. For my clients, who want to incorporate their Christian beliefs, I walk alongside them pointing them to Christ. I will bring in Biblical principles that can give my clients space to open up their wounds to Christ for healing.
As a therapist I use a variety of evidence-based practices to serve the needs of my clients such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), person-centered therapy, solution-focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) just to name a few.

challenging season, those who are struggling with anxiety and/or depression, and clients who have
