Jonathan Karber, M.S., L.M.F.T., L.P.C.-S.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Licensed Professional Counselor.
I received a Master's of Science degree in family therapy from Texas Woman's University. I've been in private practice sice 2005.
I provide counseling services to individuals, couples, and families. Areas of focus include marriage and family therapy, mood disorders such as anxiety and depression, pornography and sex addiction, and working with individuals with unwanted, same-sex attraction.
My counseling style draws from a variety of therapy models such as Cognitive Behavioral, Sytemic, and Solution-Focused therapies.
I offer faith-based counseling services for clients who desire this approach. I realize not everyone desires faith-based services and will adjust my approach to meet you at your point of need.
However, please understand that my faith will still influence the direction that therapy will take because I cannot separate myself from my beliefs.
My faith is the foundation of my ethics and practice as a mental health professional. Christianity is my personal frame of reference and it influences how I define morality and view relationships.
Since June of 2007, I have been associated with Stonegate Behavioral Health, serving children and teens, that are victims of abuse or neglect and have been placed into foster care.
Prior experience included working with Mental Health and Mental Retardation of Tarrant County for five years, where I served adult clients with mental illness.
I also completed hundreds of hours of practicum work at Irving Family Advocacy Center where I counseled adolescents, families, couples, and individuals with a variety of concerns including parenting issues, marital conflict, step-family adjustment, self-esteem issues, substance abuse, divorce recovery, grief recovery, and sexuality.
In addition, I completed a practicum at Mansfield Independent School District where I worked with adolescents and families.
