Dr. Owen has helped my learn about myself and grow in personal development. Starting counseling was a fearful experience for me and she makes me feel comfortable, heard, and makes sure I know I am in control of my inner dialogue. She has helped my so much over the past few months it is hard for me to find the words for how much I appreciate her and trust her expertise.

Dr. Owen Jimenez has treated with respect and understanding since the beginning of our counseling relationship. I appreciate the way encourages me to try new techniques for dealing with stress.

Written by C.H. on Sep 23, 2020 after counseling with Karen for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, parenting issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

In short she is amazing, very patient and easy to talk to. She tries to really understand and listen to the circumstances of her clients and creates more of a friendship relationship rather than Dr patient relationship. I felt she was very experienced and confident in her profession when working with her. Although we have a time slot, our time together never felt rushed. I would have no problem recommending her to someone else.

Dr. Jimenez changed my life. When I came to her months ago I was extremely depressed/cried 3x a day and now I am so beyond happy thanks to her incredible support and helpfulness. I never feel judged and she doesn't make our sessions awkward or uncomfortable. Never pushes me to talk about anything I don't want to. I am beyond lucky to have gotten her! 27995737274/10!!

Dr. Owen Jimenez was incredible. She always responded in a timely manner and checked in on me when she didn’t hear from me. She made me feel like my feelings were valid and it was understandable why I felt the way I felt. She allowed me to just vent without judgement. I highly recommend!

Written by E.L. on Mar 24, 2020 after counseling with Karen for 2 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

I came to Dr. Jimenez aware that I had things to work on, but not sure where to start. I also had a problem with accepting that my feelings and issues were completely valid. Dr. Jimenez has been an angel and has helped me immensely- I know that she is someone I can always depend on when times are rough. I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking to get help and counseling.

She is wonderful. Understanding, kind, non judgemental. And actually gives you feedback and advice not just listening. Very helpful.

Written by O.L. on Dec 01, 2019 after counseling with Karen for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

I came into this program with a myriad of concerns. Dr. Jimenez has helped me to prioritize my life goals and start to accomplish the necessary tasks to succeed in them. These goals are my primary focus right now and the Dr. has helped me through some really tough spots and continues to assist me through others. She has been an amazing support and I don't think I could be doing what I am doing without her help.
I have many other issues that I need to tackle with her and look forward to doing so as soon as possible. However, right now, the prioritization of these near-term goals is the only thing I care about.
When I have brought up some other things, she has been more than helpful. Returning my focus to the tasks at hand while helping me cope with the other things that are cropping up.

I could not ask for a Better experience and Dr. Jimenez has been perfect.

Written by A.S. on Nov 04, 2019 after counseling with Karen for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, and adhd

Dr. Owen is a good listener and takes the time to understand your situation. She would always ask questions to get to the core of the problem. She had gently nudged to challenge my thought process and my thoughts and validate it through a series of questions. Based on her recommendations, I have started writing a journal to capture my thoughts and this is certainly helping me a lot. She is amazing!!!
