Klarissa Garcia, M.A.

Klarissa Garcia

I pride myself in bringing genuineness and authenticity to therapy, finding empathy by putting myself in my clients’ shoes while at the same time pushing them toward change. I enjoy working with individuals struggling with anxiety and OCD as I believe that with effective treatment, they get better and find themselves living a more valued life!

I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from The George Washington University in Washington, DC. I completed my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Denver, and I am currently in my fourth-year of graduate training towards earning my doctorate in clinical psychology at the Graduate School of Professional Psychology at University of Denver. I have completed clinical rotations at a variety of settings, including hospitals (National Jewish Health, Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center, Children’s Hospital), community mental health centers (Aurora Mental Health Center), private practice (Kimel Psychological Services, LLC), and residential facilities (Denver Children’s Home). 

I am fluent in Spanish and am happy to provide therapy for Spanish-speaking clients.

I was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela and moved to the United States to pursue my studies. I love dancing to every type of music, skiing, doing triathlons, going to concerts, exploring new restaurants, watching TV shows, and visiting family and friends back home.
