Karen is incredibly in-tune to my needs and how therapy can best help me. Although I pride myself on my self-awareness, she challenges me to be insightful in ways I’ve never thought of before. She is incredibly welcoming and doesn’t waste a minute of time in our sessions. I can’t recommend her enough!
