Hi! I'm Karen and I'm so happy that you've gained the courage to ask for help! I've been a counselor for 18 years, and have worked with a broad range of clients. My style is casual, but I really like to focus on problem solving. My hope is that you'll come out of your first session with a couple of tools that, if you apply them, will help relieve the problem. During every session, we build onto the foundation we've laid, increasing your tools and addressing any new issues. I'm a great listener, and am able to tease out things that might guide you to relief. Counseling is a great tool, but its a two way street - you'll have some homework and activities to do between sessions, and it's important that you fully engage in your healing. I have expertise with Military - active duty or veterans and have worked with Regular and SOF troops, spouses and families. I believe in empowerment for my clients, and my hope is that through our work together, you can heal and move through your problems with strength, integrity and grace.

Karen really understands my needs and has helped me come over many challenges in just a few weeks. I like her approach, I am usually flooded and overwhelmed with emotions. She has helped me address and work some ways I can release negative thought patterns. I've started with her for about 3 weeks now, since working with her I've seen many improvements in how I feel. I've been feeling much more confident about myself and, I'm finding myself returning to enjoying my hobbies again whereas for a couple past years I wasn't able to. I still have much work to do, I know with her continued support I will be to achieve my personal my goals to managing my emotions more effectively.
I feel so fortunate to have Karen on my side. She is top-notch and exactly the personality I need to help keep me moving forward and making progress. She listens attentively and offers advice and concern in a warm and caring manner. I look forward to our sessions and I'm truly grateful to have her expertise and care.
Karen is wonderful! I feel like she really takes the time to understand what it is I'm working through and gives really thoughtful, insightful responses. She has a lot of life experiences that make her a very relatable counselor. I've really enjoyed working with her.
Thank goodness for this program and for Karen. She was there when I needed someone.
Thanks a lot, Karen.
I appreciate Karen's expertise in counseling I am receiving. She has helped me get through the hardest time in my life with real solid advise and direction.
Working with Karen House has helped me through my recovery process. I have overcome many obstacles because of the way Karen is as a therapist. I never felt that a problem I was battling would lead to judgment. As she is very transparent and honest she maintains compassion through that. I recommend Karen House to anyone that struggles with mental health and substance abuse issues.
Karen is.... just amazing. I made progress I never thought possible with her help!! Thank you Karen!!
Karen House is absolutely wonderful. She has been extremely helpful and came up with very effective ways to deal with my issues. Unlike some therapists I have had, I really feel like she listens to me and helps me understand what's going on.
I was only able to use Betterhelp for a few weeks, but I had Karen House for the entirety of the duration, and I'm really thankful I was matched with her. She is very kind and was able to give me advice and solutions for all the problems I voiced with her, and recommended great resources that aid me beyond the counseling. It felt as though I was talking to a friend, and that I could trust her wholly with my struggles.
Karen, is a wonderful, warm lady. I am enjoying working with her and crushing all those goals.
With straightforward and effective tools and ideas, Karen has been helping me to make sense of my life and of who I am.
Through new ideas and even readings and other complementary material shared per my request, our written correspondence, twice or three times a week, is when I can put order on my thoughts and feelings, share it with someone and receive useful feedback and orientation.
Thank you, Karen, for being there!
Karen is thoughtful, funny and compassionate. She's also direct in a way that is never overbearing just straight laced and i've been so happy to work with her. She gives me space to think things through but never lets me become overwrought.
Karen is fantastic!
It's been great working with Karen.
Karen is very sweet and caring and full of good advice
Extremely proactive in trying to find solutions and in messaging me on a regular basis. I find Karen really tries to understand my issues and reads everything I write in detail (which must take a while!). Very understanding and helpful.
Karen is a real professional, we're a very good team. Thanks for helping me overcome all of this. It was a very good choice.
Karen is incredibly easy to talk to and very concise and lovely. Even through a few message conversations she was able to help me see where I needed to change my thinking, and has made a big impact on my life. Thank you, Karen.
Karen is great. She is responsive and insightful. It is a joy going through this process with her.
Karen is great! She goes out of her way to find information she doesn't know, and will tell me information she does know, as many times as I need her to.
I am excited to get to work with Karen I think she will be very helpful to me in this tough time I'm facing.
I love this form of therapy. I've had many sessions over the years with counselors face to face. By far this has been my best experience. Karen is objective and understands my needs because of her experience, therefore her help has been very insightful and focused. I'm so pleased she was assigned to me. I have a lot of work ahead of me but motivated to take the journey with Karen.
Karen listened to me and gave me options and I really appreciate it, definitely recommend her :)
Karen is very caring and understanding. She gives practical suggestions that really help. Thank you!
Going through the most difficult time in my life and Karen is making such a difference. To have access to leave her a message whenever I need to is making all the difference in the world and she's really prompt about leaving them too.
I love working with Karen House! She has been helping me so much. I am finally starting to get my anxiety under control and I feel like this was the best method for the money I have spent. I get more interaction with Karen more frequently then if I would was going into a therapists office. She is always responds back with in a day and has amazing advice which has helped me tremendously.
Thank you so much Karen and I look forward to working with you more!
