About me

Welcome! I am so glad that you have made this very important step in seeking therapy through BetterHelp! My name is Karen Kluchin-Song. I hold a Masters Degree in Social Work (MSW) from Tulane University School of Social Work, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) within the state of Louisiana with over 18 years of experience providing therapy. My areas of expertise include: trauma, grief, women’s issues, blended families, LGBTQIA, stress and military. I also have experience in working on relationship issues, depression, anxiety, anger management, polyamory/ non monogamous relationships, young adult, first responders, control issues, family of origin, life purpose, dissociation, self love, workplace issues, combat issues, PTSD, addictions, parenting issues, guilt and shame, spirituality, sexuality, identity development, major life transitions, and isolation.

This experience was conducted at Military Installations, at Schools, at Domestic Violence Programs, Rape Crisis Programs, at Children Advocacy Centers (CAC's) and within Private Practice (among others).

My approach is eclectic- incorporating Trauma Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, Strengths Based Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy. I believe strongly that my clients are the experts on their own lives. I wish to co-create goals for therapy with you as I walk with you along in your journey of self discovery. I wish to provide a safe place for you to process issues you wish to bring to therapy.

Karen is amazing, she listens when I need her to, she asks questions and guides the session when I need her to, she calls me out on my bs in a loving way, and she makes me laugh. Great therapist!
