Mrs. Karen has been wonderful from the beginning. She has created a sharing environment by consistently making adjustments to how the conversation is framed based upon my responses - she is speaking my language. While each session has a focus, the details are worked through even if they do not lead to the expected end. Eventually, everything is examined in the light and the issues become easier to identify - which is the hard part.
Mrs. Karen is someone who can relate to those who are weary from grinding it out each day in order to be successful. I highly recommend her for anyone who needs to work through the things they know about but don't have time to think about.
