About  Kathy Pardue

In 2001, I founded Karis Counseling to restore healthy relationships and help clients heal from failure, abuse, anxiety, depression, grief, loss, and other hurtful life events.  Karis means grace, the acceptance we need to risk change.  Our relationship is based on compassion, encouragement, and confidentiality to allow a safe atmosphere for healing. 

Marriage Counseling has been a specialty for more than 20 years, and continues to challenge me in helping couples renew their love and connection.  I love seeing couples let go of resentment after years of chronic conflict and detachment.  We can work together toward healing concerns of anger, abuse, infidelity, parenting, addiction, and other areas of stress.  Marriage Therapy helps change the cycle of poor communication which leads to hopelessness.  We can help you reverse the pattern thru learning to validate and understand before giving a defense in any conflict.  I see couples develop empathy as they change the blame game into a less explosive dialogue.  It can seem that love is dead, but Couples Therapy can actually can actually help revive love as old wounds are healed thru forgiveness and healthy communication.  

Couples Counseling helps clients resolve recurring conflicts, establish healthy boundaries, blend families, and get past infidelity and extended family problems.  Sessions are never about sides, and both partners are validated for their thoughts and feelings.  We have relaxed, interactive, and solution-focused conversations to help you share without fear of judgment.  Clients need compassion from Family Therapy sessions to feel encouraged and see change.

Clients return over the last 20 yrs. as life presents new challenges, and I work to restore new perspective and hope when life gets hurtful and disorienting.  I am committed to the restoration of people in an integrative approach of spiritual life, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-focused, and Emotionally-focused Therapy for couples.  

All faiths or none are welcome.  My husband, Lee, and I have been married 38 yrs. and have 7 grandchildren.  "My life passion is helping people heal and live happier, more  peaceful lives, even in unavoidable circumstances.”   My clients see new hope and perspective as we generate options together and discuss simple tools for feeling better.  I connect quickly with people to understand their goals, personality, and unique needs.  Referrals may also be made to other healthcare professionals to help discern medical needs affecting our Couples Therapy or Marriage Counseling.

I have experience in group counseling, hospital setting, homeless shelter, speaking on ADHD, eating disorders, grief, and hope in disasters.  BA- Business, 1978.   MA- Counseling, 1998.  Certified Critical Stress Debriefing Counselor, Certified EFT (Emotionally-focused Therapy).  Post graduate work: Dallas Theological Seminary and St. Mary's Seminary at St. Thomas University.  Member:  HAMFT, Houston Assoc. of Marriage and Family Therapists;  CPA, Catholic Psychotherapy Association.  Founded JoyFull Women Ministry, St. Vincent de Paul and St. John Vianney Catholic Churches.  Background in liturgical dance in ecumenical settings.  Glory to God!
