“Kathy is friendly, perceptive and makes workable suggestions that help.”
Highly recommended. Kathy makes you feel comfortable from the beginning, and is easy to talk to. She is understanding and gives you tools to use to help with your situation. I like that she is a Christian and will incorporate those values into the discussion if you want. She really helps you to understand what is going on and how to fix it.
When my wife and I decided to seek professional help, we chose Kathy based on her stellar reviews and her own personal history. Having never seen a counselor before and being afflicted with that XY disorder, I was pleasantly surprised when my skepticism was dispelled during our first visit. Kathy created a warm and caring environment where both my wife and I felt comfortable discussing all of our concerns. She quickly homed in on the causes of our unhealthy dynamics and patiently taught us techniques to bring us closer together. I have learned so much about myself over the course of our visits.
Kathy's passion is to teach others love and improve the quality of their lives, and at this she excels. Couples in need of guidance and individuals seeking answers should look no further.
Professional Caring Counselor. I recently started visiting Kathy for her to help me through the end of my marriage. When I started, I was having trouble understanding my life and could not cope with many of my feelings. Within one visit, Kathy helped me process my feelings, understand where my life was going, and encouraged me to improve myself. I felt instantly at ease with Kathy and felt her experience allowed her to fully understand the issues I was facing. As a male who has never been to counseling before, I was somewhat skeptical if seeing a counselor would be worth my time and expense. I now know that speaking to a professional who actually cares about her clients and can offer objective, personal advice on how to deal with my problems has been invaluable to my healing process. I would highly recommend Kathy Pardue to anyone facing marriage or other issues who feel that their personal problems may be too overwhelming or difficult to understand.
Assesses needs, works with you, patient. My husband and I had come to an impasse and were in desperate need of help. I chose Kathy primarily because of her years counseling. We needed someone, who over the years, would have dealt with many different types of personalities, including very difficult ones. Although we have seen Kathy just a few times and those few sessions have been a roller coaster ride, the sessions have been extremely helpful. Kathy has provided us with very specific guidance. We've noticed subtle changes, at home, in our behavior. Changes that make things better between us. The guidance Kathy gives us makes sense, intellectually and emotionally. It translates at home. She's patient, She works with you. She's helpful.
My husband and I have been looking for a marriage counselor and selected Karis Counseling based on great reviews. During our initial visit I was pleasantly surprised with Kathy's professionalism, knowledge and positive energy. She did not take sides, but helped to identify the issues that needed to be addressed, demonstrated high emotional intelligence and logical ways in conflict resolution.
Both, my husband and I felt very comfortable talking to Kathy during group sessions as well as on an individual basis. She has a very positive approach, provides honest and helpful feedback and comprehensive suggestions on how to resolve our problems. I would highly recommend seeing Kathy if you are facing difficulties and unresolved conflicts in your marriage.
Knowledgeable and Comforting. I have been going to Kathy Pardue for about three months for cognitive therapy for OCD. She is very knowledgeable and experienced in the treatment of OCD. She has helped me understand that there are other people who suffer with OCD, and that this is something I can and will overcome. She is very sympathetic when I discuss the dificulties and frustrations of this disorder. She has helped me fight the lies that I fear with the truth of God's word and love. I feel she is very professional because she understands the balance of cognitive, medical, and spiritual therapy that is needed to treat OCD. I have seen notable steps in my recovery. My anxiety and depression have drastically decreesed and continue to do so everyday. I have recomended her to my own family, and would recomend her to anyone who needs any form of psychological therapy.
Kathy is a GREATcounselor, she put me at ease right from the start. She seems to completley understand everything I am going through and has compassion for those feelings. She is very direct and honest, which is something I have been searching for! I really appreciate all her insight and advice on what steps to take towards happiness again. I also felt like she was able to read me and understand my values, and never pushed anything on me.
I am very disappointed in two of the negative reviews on her website - they don't paint an accurate picture of her at all.
I highly highly recommend her to anyone.
Kathy Pardue is a wonderful counselor. She made me feel comfortable right away and was very open. She is a great listener and asked great questions that helped me open up and helped me to successfully confront the issues that needed to be addressed without feeling stupid or scared. Her Christian values make her counseling even that much more powerful and effective. She is very soft spoken, kind, and pleasant.
It is always hard to talk about your weaknesses or problems, but with the guidance of a positive counselor you can make positive changes in your attitude and in your life. I would recommend Kathy Pardue for men and women who are ready to have a real conversation with real helpful feedback in a positive and helpful atmosphere.
Dr. Pardue Saved Me a Lot of Pain and Heartache.
I'd been working to save my marriage for 15 months with no help from my wife. When we finally decided to go to counseling, we chose Dr. Pardue because she had great reviews and she was a Christian counselor. The sessions were rough sometimes but Dr. Pardue always mediated fairly and she always based her guidance in scripture. She tried to understand both our points of view and helped us to better understand how men and women process words, emotions, and actions.
Dr. Pardue's recommendations were always very direct and honest. I appreciated that because my life was in shambles and I didn't need anything sugar coated. I needed brutal honesty. In the end, her guidance helped me get my life back on track and I'm very thankful for her.
Kathy has proven to be incredibly helpful to me. She listens when you need to get something out and she responds with very helpful, pertinent thoughts and Christian-based solutions. Rather than just telling you what you should be doing and/or modifying, she also offers Christian-based strategies for accomplishing it.
I used to think counseling was something for weak-minded people who weren't strong enough to deal with whatever issues they had. Kathy has proven to me that it can be an incredibly helpful tool in recognizing issues, accepting them, understanding their impact, and addressing them. I am a better person for having gone through this process and Kathy has played a big role in my personal transformation. I would highly recommend her services.
