I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, fully licensed by the state of Michigan, with over 18 years of experience working as a clinical therapist. I have worked with clients of all ages and stages of life with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, stress, life transitions, grief, relationships, career challenges, trauma, conflict resolution, health and wellness, LGBTQ issues, and more.
My counseling style is positive, warm, and interactive. I believe in treating all clients with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, without judgement, creating a safe place for you to work on your challenges and struggles. My approach is cognitive-behavioral and solution focused, while also incorporating other techniques such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I also have training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Above all I customize counseling and treatment based on the individual needs of the client.
Change takes courage! If you are ready to take that step, I can help! I am here to support and empower you towards the change you desire.
I am looking forward to working with you!

Karen is an exceptional counselor and her years of experience show. She is supportive, gentle, kind, and caring while also allowing for her client the room to come to conclusions and resolve. She validates and is consistent
Karen is the best therapist i’ve had. in only a few weeks, i’ve already seen an improvement in my mental health and we’ve been making important progress with my traumas. i could not be happier :)
Karen is a calm and respectful therapist, who listens attentively and encourages me to discuss my issues for the week... I enjoy our discussions and the guided realisations I have reached.
I started working with Karen back in May and the sessions have been really helpful. She is listens well and talks things through in a no nonsense, pragmatic way. I was in the depths of despair when we started and now I can see my issues much more clearly, I know whats best for ME and life is much, much better. I would definitely return to her if I needed more counselling.
I have only been with Karen Mueller a couple of weeks but she is so supportive.
Over the 5-6 months I worked with Karen, I saw a huge difference in the way I lead my life and in my overall happiness and quality of life.. She was a great help in my journey and I am very happy to have worked with her..
Karen has been great! I started counseling due to a personal crisis that came out of a large and ambiguous set of concerns that I felt I need to work on . Karen has been very helpful as I try better understand how to move past self-perceptions and behaviours that I feel are making me unhappy in my relationships and less effective in my career. She offers a clear set of strategies and perspectives to work though confusing perceptions and emotions and the inadvertently self-sabotaging behaviours that come out of that. I am making great progress in living more purposefully and acting more effectively with her help.
Karen is an incredibly warm, patient and considerate counselor who listens closely to everything you say and addresses all of your concerns individually. I would love to have Karen as a regular face to face counsellor and have appreciated all the help, advice and time she's given me during our sessions.
Karen has been an awesome help and I have found that I was able to open up to her and talk about everything I needed to.
Karen is awesome and has helped a lot.
Karen is helpful without enforcing advice. She is timely in her responses. I've been impressed.
I think Karen does a great job of understanding what my concerns are, and she is really good about finding ways to make me think about things, meaning I do the mental work necessary. I'm very happy to have her as a counselor.
I find Karen very helpful and professional. Her manner is calm and comforting resulting in successful sessions.
Karen has helped me work through some very difficult issues involving gender identity and fear. I have only worked with her for two weeks and it astonishes me how far I have come in that time. The support she has given me has been fantastic in terms of helping me to achieve my goals!
Karen provides a listening ear and a very rationale voice. I’ve enjoyed my sessions with her so far, feel like my concerns are respected and addressed in a manner that is incredibly beneficial. I’m glad to have Karen available to help me through my anxieties and struggles with life’s challenges.
