I work with a wide variety of disorders and conditions such as depression and anxiety. My practice specializes in trauma, PTSD, and addictions counseling with a focus on treatment for adults. I have worked in community counseling, crisis counseling, and currently specialize in work with Veterans and Military Service Members.
My Counseling Philosophy: I believe counseling is an interactive relationship between the individual and the counselor. This relationship is collaborative, nurturing, supportive, and holistic. My approach to counseling is to discover the underlying causes for outward behaviors and symptoms, and to heal those causes using a wide variety of therapeutic modalities and interventions. A person much first have hope that healing is possible and then have the best possible relationship with a supportive counselor to move towards the goals that will make your life complete.

Karen gets it! She understands my concerns and guides me towards resolving them. She has helped me regain my voice and my happiness and I am eternally grateful for that.
Karen has been a godsend. I can't think of a time where I have felt simultaneously this safe and empowered to make positive changes and look inwards. She has provided me with unparalleled support and empathy whilst being honest and forthright about some of my thinking patterns and behaviors. I'm very happy we crossed paths we hopeful for a healthier future.
Amazing! She has a gift for muddling through the details and getting to the core of how I'm feeling. She listens, she has great incite. She knows how to gently push to dig a little deeper. I've learned so much about myself in this short span of time.
I truly feel Karen is helping me sort through my mountain of issues and I really enjoy our sessions because I really feel it is helping.
Feel that I made a great choice. So thankful for her experience in the needs that I have and being so open with the different types of counseling that will be best. Grateful to have her for this journey
