Editorial review from Citysearch 10/27/2013

I have traveled from West University to Kathy’s office on the Katy freeway over the last year and wouldn't consider going anywhere else. Kathy is wonderful. She is real, honest, easy to talk to and very effective in her approach. I recently brought my husband for couples counseling and we could not believe the progress we made in just one session. We had gone elsewhere previously and accomplished more in one session with Kathy than all previous sessions combined. My experience with Kathy over the last year has been incredibly positive and I couldn't recommend her more! Her online scheduling site is great too! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/9/2013

Highest Respect and gratitude for Kathy and her gifts of empathy, wisdom, and honesty.\r \r Kathy listens with a caring heart and an intent to meet me where I am in that moment. Helping to bring the whole vision of my heart into focus. She has gently lead me and my husband into conversations and exercises to get to the most crucial areas our relationship with each other, with ourselves and with our Lord.\r \r Kathy is able to quickly see and discern where the pain and hurt resides in my life. By using straightforward communication with me, she allows me to trust her with my thoughts and feelings. To then heal and move past those things keeping me from having the Joy I so desire in my life.\r \r I believe Kathy has a passion for the people in her care to live in the freedom and purpose they were created to live in. more

Highly recommended 8/6/2011

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. more

Wonderful counselor 6/7/2010

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. Pros: Knowledgeable, caring, patient more

Professional Caring Counselor 6/4/2010

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. more

Assesses needs, works with you, patient 6/1/2010

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. Pros: Provides specific guidance in achieving your goals more

Great Counselor! 5/28/2010

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. Pros: Professional, knowledgeable, friendly more

Knowledgeable and Comforting 5/27/2010

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. Pros: Knowledgeable, sympathetic, professional Cons: The drive more

Wonderful experience 5/27/2010

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. Pros: very knowledgeable, comforting, honest Cons: none! :) more

Great Experience 5/27/2010

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. Pros: comforting, positive, helpful more

Dr. Pardue Saved Me a Lot of Pain and Heartache 5/27/2010

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. Pros: Honest, Motivated by Scripture, Direct more

Transforming! 5/26/2010

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. Pros: Offers solutions, not just talk. Cons: None. more

**WARNING** This is not the counselor for you!! 5/26/2010

My Husband and I had decided to go to Kathy Pardue based on the fact that she considered herself to be a ""Christian"" counselor and seemed to be well credentialed. Kathy Pardue has a very abrasive and confrontational style that my Husband and I found to be very bizarre. She knows no boundaries as she verbally attacked to two of us. We found her unprofessional and bizarre and filed complaints with the Texas State licensing board and other professional associations that she is apart of. My husband and I would not recommend her to anyone. We have learned to be more prudent in our search for a counselor and have found one that suited the both of us. I would warn anyone on using Kathy Pardue as a family or marriage counselor. Pros: None. Cons: Abrassive,Confrontational,Unprofessional more

The Unprofessional laughing ""Counselor"" 5/24/2010

Upon two visits to Kathy my Wife and I had enough. The first visit she proceeded to attack my Wife, with a very aggressive and direct approach. The next visit, I guess in her way of tipping the scale, she decided to reverse the attack and focus on me. She very unprofessionally laughed at several attempts at the two of us attempting to explain ourselves, worsening the tension between us. Then lastly, we abruptly ended the session and paid to go on our way and find another counselor. Kathy, ever the professional, called me a half hour later to question what exactly went wrong with the session. I explained to her what happened and even apologized for the abrupt ending. She proceeded to, unprofessionally might I add, hysterically laugh at me explaining myself. I ended the conversation by saying that you got what you wanted, an explanation for the abrupt ending and an apology that I wish that I never gave, and I promptly told her to never call me again. My Wife and I were extremely disappointed in her behavior and we wouldn't recommend her to anyone. Pros: Direct Cons: Not comforting, unprofessional, questionable problem solving more

Look No Further for a Counselor 4/19/2010

Our society has fallen into the two traps of narcacissm and humanism and nowhere can you find them better represented than in a therapists office. This is not the case with Kathy Pardue. Many non Christian therapists offer that there is no right or wrong, no shame, no guilt, no wrongness; instead you should focus on your own needs and desires no matter the consequences. If you are looking for someone to affirm your selfish ways, then you should not see Kathy. She transforms worldly views with Biblically based truths and cognitive therapy. Pros: Christian counseling w/ strong cognitive behavioral therapy Cons: Alas...insurance more

Kathy Pardue - Life Coach and Mentor ***** (5 STARS)!!! 3/27/2010

I have been so blessed to have been led to Kathy for mentoring and Christian counseling. Kathy teaches with LIFE empowering tools that strengthen the SOUL! The LIFE empowering tools granted from Kathy during a session never cease to yield returns. I highly recommend a session with Kathy!! Kathy Pardue has been the best medicine for my journey in this life. God has blessed Kathy with the MIND and WISDOM to console and heal while rendering service to the greater glory of the Father! May GOD bless her and her family as she continues to bless me and my family with her wisdom!! Pros: Kathy personalizes Christian precepts PRICELESS! more

A great christian counselor 3/14/2010

Kathy has been a wonderful and compassionate counselor who has helped guide me through some difficult life issues. She provides you with her direct viewpoint and assists you in seeing past your current troubles to what the future can be. I am truly grateful for her guidance! Pros: compassionate, helpful Cons: None! more

The Best With Teens 3/10/2010

We have a blended family with several teens. Kathy has seen three of our kids and we have seen amazing results with each. Keep in mind that it can be quite difficult to get teens to go to counseling. Her ability to connect and validate each individual child instantly disarms them and makes them actually WANT to do counseling. Each child has come away from the experience with a better understanding of themselves and how their behavior affects others. Also, she has reminded us as parents how we can be more affective with our teens. I would recommend her to anyone. And more than that, my kids would do the same. Pros: Connects & Validates Teens - as well as adults more

Wonderful Christian Counselor 7/12/2009

Kathy is a very caring and very professional counselor. Her counseling is biblically based, but also she has great strategies for making the relationship grow and become more solid. She has a great way about her that puts you at ease and helps you open up about the problems. I am so grateful that God led us to her. PWG Pros: No judgments just very helpful strategies more

Amazing Counselor- The BEst 6/15/2009

I am a 26 year old female that had an all time low in my life this past year. I have been to counselors before but noone has ever made me feel empowered or accepted the way Kathy has. She is a Christian counselor which really helps with my faith in god as well, and I believe that god-along with her are the only two things that have gotten me through this tough year. more
