About Karla:

Karla received her undergraduate degree from University of Wyoming in Social Work. While earning her degree, she worked for a local group home for troubled youth and later worked at the local Boys & Girls Club.

Karla enjoys working with people of all ages but has a special fondness for the geriatric population and members of the LGBTQ+ community. She has also worked with clients from a variety of religious and sexual backgrounds and will meet clients where they are and help them on their journey. She utilizes person-centered techniques with her clients, empowering them to discover their strengths and how to use them effectively.
When she is not working or completing homework she enjoys spending time with her children and dogs.
