About Me

I am an individual, couples and family therapist. I have tremendous respect for the courage it takes to reach out for help and believe that the relationship my clients and I develop is crucial for goals to be accomplished. My clients find me to be easy to talk to, non judgmental and empathetic. My goal is always to make sure my clients feel understood. I look forward to learning about everyone who reaches out to me. I make my own appointments and that’s why you won’t see open time slots in the schedule here, so feel free to reach out and message me.

She has been wonderful, parent and attentive. She has helped me in only a couple weeks to understand my situation and be accountable and progress. I look forward to more sessions with her.

Caren Nowak is amazing! She's really easy to talk to, is an excellent listener, and gives some of the best responses. She's really been able to open my eyes to things I hadn't realized before.

Caren was extremely helpful when I was at a very low point. She has followed up with me a few times since then. Thank you for referring me to her!
