However you came to this platform I am glad you are here. Together we can make this experience helpful. I have worked with many kinds of people in different jobs, careers and settings. My experience as a counselor, a Mother, and former foster Mother helps me to understand a variety of different problems. I approach each person and situation as unique and work with you to quickly identify what decision or skills will provide quick relief to the presenting problem. We will set short and long term goals and YOU will tell me how we are progressing along the way. We will review and reset our goals often.

The setting I have worked in have included youth, adults, serious mental illness, Depression, Anxiety, Substance Use Disorder and a variety of other concerns, I am a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor also giving me a particular background in working with career issues as they relate to various disabilities.

Karen’s ability to create an atmosphere that is comfortable, helpful, and allows for self-examining is exceptional. She always helps, always has a calm and reasonable way to work things through. I find her solutions appropriate and applicable to my needs. We have conversations that run from tears to laughs and are cathartic. I’m really happy to have found someone who fits so well.
Karen is insightful, extremely competent, compassionate, empathetic. Grateful for her support and expertise.
I love Karen, she literally saved my life by helping coordinate a hospital trip with me for what turned out to be a kidney infection. I was freaking out about being sick, and she helped me make a plan and stay safe.
Karen is great
Karen is great!
Karen is truly caring and loving when connecting, either telephonic, over computer or via messaging. I have a heartfelt gratitude for her sharing of her insight...just wish I had more time to reach out and take more advantage of this valuable service or experience with a chance to self explore, for inner growth.
Karen is such a down to earth lady. She is calm, listens well, checks in often, and is invested in my success. I appreciate her sense of humor and how she has helped me explore a variety of options for each issue I am dealing with. I always feel I can reach out to her when I need support.
Karen has been great - we have tried a couple of therapists before and she has been the most helpful by far.
She is the best. The absolute best. I never feel like I’m “talking to my therapist”, I always feel like I’m talking to friend who is just trying to be there for me and listen.
Karen is just the right therapist for me. I feel so light after speaking with her, i can completely empty my heart out to her without being judged. Because of her help i feel like this is the best money I have spent on myself.
Excellent, anything less would be a understatement.
She is awesome!
I have only been working with Karen for a short time, but I feel that our sessions are helpful and she is making sure to address all the issues I have presented her with. So far so good!
Kren seems very knowledgeable on what therapy works best for each scenario and is receptive and responsive. I have had a great experience thus far!
Karen is great and helpful. I feel supported when I talk to her.
