Karen is great. She is incredibly patient, caring and kind. She provided me not only with great talk therapy but amazing resources to go to outside of therapy to further help me in my healing process. I highly recommend Karen!

Karen is great, she offers amazing feedback and really gets me thinking and connecting the dots. I like her style, she is straightforward and honest. I look forward to my conversations with her every week.
