My name is Karina Mora and I am a licensed Social Worker in the state of New Mexico. I received my Bachelor degree in Psychology and Spanish with a minor in Criminology from the University of New Mexico in 2016. In 2019 I completed my Masters degree in Social Work with a clinical concentration from New Mexico Highlands University.

Most of my clinical experience has been working as an MST therapist with at risk youth and their families as well as doing individual outpatient therapy with individuals with severe mental health disorders. The majority of my training has been in treating mood disorders as well as trauma. I am a bilingual therapist, fluent in both English and Spanish.

In therapy, I use a combination of modalities such as CBT to help clients understand the ways in which our thoughts affect our emotions and our behaviors. I then work to help clients modify thoughts that are negatively affecting their life. I also use talk therapy to allow clients to process emotions, trauma and thoughts. I often focus on using a strength based approach where we can together identify client’s strengths and use them to foster change.

I am most passionate about working with adolescents and adults who are experiencing anxiety and depression symptoms.

My hope is that I can provide a safe and empathetic therapeutic environment for all clients in which they can feel validated and listened to. I believe that healing is possible, but it takes time, work, and support.
