Kara Gooch

Have you ever felt stuck? Have you ever felt that nothing can or will change? Everyone has a unique story. Everyone’s story begins when they are young and continues throughout their lifetime. There are experiences that can flood your story with mayhem and catch you off guard. No one should feel like they are trapped in these situations. Life can come with so many obstacles, and it is important to be able to work through those difficulties and continue to grow into the person you want to be.

Hi. My name is Kara Gooch. I am a Marriage and Family Therapy intern here at Mathews Counseling, and I am passionate about walking on this journey with you to navigate some of the hardships that life may have thrown your way. My goal is to support you in becoming the best version of yourself, while also providing strategies to improve your self-worth and overall happiness. It is so important to have a healthy, respectful, and trustworthy relationship with your therapist, and I strive to provide a safe and welcoming space for us to collaborate and work together.

I work with a diverse population of children, teens, and adults. I most enjoy working with clients who are seeking help to rebuild their confidence and inner strength or those in need of support around a variety of life stressors that may be taking place.

A little bit about me: I was born and raised in Apex, North Carolina, and I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Lenoir-Rhyne University. I am currently pursuing my Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at National University and am specializing in Child and Adolescent Family Therapy. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my two dogs, surround myself with family, and enjoy time outdoors.

I am currently taking new clients for both in-person and telehealth appointments on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. I am practicing as a clinical intern under the supervision of Dr. Adaria Warner, LMFT. If I seem like a good fit for you, give our office a call at 919-587-8018 or request an appointment with me online at mathewscounseling.net.

I look forward to working together.

What our clients are saying about Mathews Counseling therapists

“Therapy was tough, but in a good way. It challenged both my husband and me to think about how each of us interacts in the marriage.”

“After seeing several counselors elsewhere, this was the first time I felt genuinely heard and understood.”

“My husband was worried about the therapist “taking sides”, which doesn’t happen.  It’s a collaborative conversation and we are delving into other issues that were not readily on the surface.”
