About Me

I am a marriage and family therapist licensed in California. I have been working in the mental health field for many years now focusing on supporting individuals, couples, and families with overcoming various challenges and reclaiming quality of life. I have worked with clients with a wide range of challenges including addictions, anger, anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, parenting, and family conflict. I have also helped people with emotional and physical trauma.

My counseling style is warm, interactive, and empathetic. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, compassion, and being non-judgmental. My interactive approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution focused, and family therapy modalities with a focus on acceptance and unconditional positive regard. I will work with you to identify your strengths and tailor treatment to your specific needs.

It takes courage to acknowledge a need for change, and begin to work toward a more fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to take that first step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Karen is a lifesaver and a godsend! She’s so caring and understanding (and always super flexible about scheduling) she thoughtfully listens to everything you say, keeps track of how you got there, and supports you with helpful advice- I love her, she’s the best, I couldn’t recommend her highly enough :)

Karen is non- judgemental and thoughtful in her replies. She also naturally encourages that same behavior in you, towards yourself! it's obvious she has lots of experience and empathy. She really helped me!

Karen is fantastic. She is very professional but personable at the same time. I feel confident in her abilities to support me. She suggests weekly meetings and I feel like meeting more often would be helpful for my current situation, so I have been a little nervous to ask for more, even though the service is unlimited.

These counseling sessions have been tremendously beneficial for me. I find myself feeling better after every interaction with Karen.

Written by I.S. on May 01, 2017 after counseling with Karen for 2 days on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

Karen is absolutely incredible. She's insightful, empathetic, and intelligent. She really helped me reach a realization for which I've been in dire need. I had been struggling for months and couldn't talk to anybody, but Karen helped me wrestle my issue to the ground. I'm looking forward to life more than ever before after having spoken with Karen. If you're lucky enough to have her reach out to you, accept with no hesitation. You won't regret it.

Written by B.R on Aug 12, 2016 after counseling with Karen for 6 days on issues concerning relationship, and intimacy-related

This has been a really great counseling experience so far. I appreciate Karen's sensitivity to where I am at in the journey of sharing my concerns and ideas with her; she guides me but I am always in the lead. She's very supportive and caring, and uses a rich vocabulary and perceptiveness in her communication/feedback. Her comments and questions inspire a lot of deeper insight on my end, helping me to better explain my story to myself and also explore greater growth. Thanks, Karen!
