About Karlie


Change can be hard and confusing. With guidance and support, you can find healing and growth amongst the uncertainty. My hope is that my office is a safe place where my clients feel heard, understood, and comforted while they gain awareness, heal from their past, and create a life they love!

Karlie Butterworth is a Licensed Professional Counselor who earned both her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and her Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Over the last ten years, she has worked with a diverse group of clients in a variety of settings such as college campuses, non-profit organizations, military installations, and clinical group practices. In 2019, she moved from Louisiana to Texas where she began working as a Career Counselor for the SFL-TAP soldier transition program at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas. After serving soldiers and their families at Fort Hood, Karlie began her work as a Licensed Counselor at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor where she has been able to counsel and mentor students in order to help them to reach their personal and professional goals.

Karlie utilizes CBT, ACT, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy, among other therapy modalities to provide her clients with ethical, evidence-based, individualized care. She believes in meeting a client where they are, and that therapy is a collaborative process where the client and therapist work together to figure out their own unique path to healing and freedom. She values being authentic and genuine and provides a judgment free space for her clients to do the same. Karlie has experience working with clients struggling with PTSD, depression, grief, trauma, attachment issues, relationship conflicts, life transitions, faith, and career challenges.

As a military spouse and first-generation college student, Karlie has a passion for helping individuals overcome adversity. She believes that everyone has their own unique talents and gifts and loves working with clients to enable them to discover these gifts in order to facilitate hope and healing within their lives. Her clients can expect to leave her office feeling empowered, cared for, and validated.

Karlie is a Louisiana native that enjoys traveling, trying new food, and connecting with nature. She has been married for 13 years and they have 5 children. Going on adventures as a family, volunteering in the nursery at church, and being near the water are ways she recharges and finds balance within her life.

I truly love what I do and would love to connect with you to help you heal, grow, and thrive!
