About me

I am licensed in Maryland and Florida with 25 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, coping with grief and loss, motivation loss, lack of self-esteem issues and loss of confidence. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I use a Solution Focused approach mixed with Cognitive Behavior and Family Systems therapy strategies to help my clients move forward and gain awareness and insight to their current situation. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process!

Karen gets me. She is kind, thoughtful, encouraging, insightful, and helpful. Karen is helping me walk through a very difficult season and I value our weekly sessions more than I can put into words.
