Hi there! My name is Karyna Spence, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate (LCSWA). I received my undergraduate degree in Intercultural Studies & Family and Human Services from John Brown University and my master’s degree in Social Work from University of Nebraska Omaha. I have professional experience working with children, teens, and adults in a variety of different settings such as child welfare, post-adoption, primary care, and brief youth residential treatment. Through these experiences, my passion to help come alongside others in all stages and situations has led me to be here at Simply Thrive.

My goal in working with you is to cultivate an interactive safe space where you feel seen, heard, and encouraged to share struggles and narratives to work towards healing. Therapy is not always an easy process, but I hope that in our time together, we can work to help you achieve your goals, whatever that looks like for you.

While each session and client are different, the therapeutic modalities that I pull from are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and mindfulness strategies.

I am looking forward to meeting you and going on this journey together!
