Image Cara Eilertsen, MA, LPC

While pursuing her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Texas A&M University, Cara served as a member of the Teach Corps, providing opportunities to orphaned, abandoned, and disadvantaged children in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. She also worked as a mentor and volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Cara’s passion for helping others led her to pursue her Master’s Degree in Counseling from St. Edward’s University. As a graduate student, Cara began working as an Intake Coordinator for Starry, a non-profit agency providing counseling services to children, adolescents, and families. Upon graduation, Cara began working at Starry as a full time Therapist. Her motivated desire to help those in need led her to her current role as the Regional Director over Starry’s Counseling Program in the North Texas area.

Cara enjoys working with children, adolescents, and young adults. Her love for music and pop culture helps her relate to clients and provide an unconventional model for success. Cara’s therapeutic style is influenced by training in evidence based treatment modalities including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.

Cara and her husband live in Dallas and spend their time enjoying the outdoors, cooking, and traveling.
