My name is Karissa Roy. I was born in San Antonio, Texas but have also lived in other countries/states but Austin is the place to be! I am a certified drug and alcohol counselor and a post grad as of October with a Masters in Professional Counseling on the LPC track. I support and believe in what Capital Area Counseling does and hope to continue to be a liaison sharing and spreading the support that CAC offers. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Existential Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness techniques and compassion as my counseling style. I strongly believe in art therapy, recreational therapy and animal therapy and the benefits of these styles to be therapeutic and beneficial for most individuals.
