NYCC therapist Karsyn Bartruff, MHC-I

Karsyn Bartruff


As a teen fan at a pop concert, Karsyn’s All-American childhood was forever changed by a modeling scout. Living in New York City and traveling the globe for over a decade, she is a unique blend of Southern Charm and worldly sophistication. As with many precocious professions, Karsyn learned that modeling comes with many pressures and proclivities including eating disorders and addictions. Although Karsyn’s enviable genetics gained her entrée into the fast-paced world of glamor, glitterati, and globe-trotting, her down-to-earth self followed the calling to a more meaningful professional path.

Supporting herself as a model through high school and an undergraduate degree in Crisis Counseling, Karsyn took a break from the industry to work at The Campaign to End Addiction. Inspired to dive more deeply into clinical work, Karsyn pursued a graduate degree in Mental Health Counseling. To subsidize another academic degree, she returned to modeling with a healthier perspective.
