Kari Keller Becker Bio

Assistant Director
Personal Statement:
Kari KellerIt is an honor for me to be a part of the Texas A&M community! College is an exciting time that often comes with a special set of challenges, and I find it very rewarding to accompany students on this part of their journey. I strive to empower each student with whom I work and value the creation of a strong, collaborative working relationship. I consider safety and trust to be paramount to counseling, and I recognize the courage it takes for clients to be vulnerable in therapy. I encourage students to try to be honest and compassionate with themselves – something I also practice personally.  When I’m not at work, I enjoy traveling, attending music festivals and concerts, working on puzzles, rooting for the Green Bay Packers, and spending time with friends, family, and my dog!
