Karen is always quick to respond to my messages and is willing to work with your schedule to an extent if they don’t completely align. She views this as a short term service and in doing so offers great resources to help you now and as you switch to a more regular therapist if you so choose.

So far I really like Karen. The only downfall is she can’t write prescriptions.
