About Me

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 10 years of experience working as therapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems. I have worked with many couples for relationship repair, communication skills, and pre-marital counseling.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, without judgment. My approach combines person centered, solution focused counseling styles. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I highly recommend Karen as she is very understanding of my issues and needs and has been really helpful to confirm some items I have been struggling with as well as shed light on how to better my self-esteem and confidence.

She listens and gives great advice/ feedback.

Written by A.L. on Jul 21, 2022 after therapy with Karen for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I just finished up about eight months of therapy with Karen, and I cannot recommend her any more highly. She is kind, caring, real, funny, non-judgmental, understanding... the list goes on, but most of all, she is exactly the kind of therapist I needed. I started working with Karen to address issues with self esteem. I felt that I was living to please other people, and I did not like myself much at all. She helped me to understand who I was, what I valued, what I wanted to bring to the world, and who I wanted to be inside of it. She helped me realize that I have value, and how to respect, acknowledge, and nurture that value (and, by extension, myself). My confidence in my ability to handle new situations has increased exponentially. She helped me navigate friendships, understand my relationships with my family, move away from home, and transition into a new job. I am a better family member, colleague, friend to others, and friend to myself because I have worked with her. If you are thinking about starting therapy with Karen, do it! I cannot thank her enough - she has changed my life :)

Written by P.E. on Jan 01, 2022 after therapy with Karen for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and grief

Karen has been a big help to me over the last few months. She has helped me sort out a lot of issues that are happening simultaneously, so I can break things down into smaller pieces that are easier to handle. I feel like I still have a lot of sorting out to do, but I’m confident that by continuing to talk things through with Karen, things are going to continue to improve. I think back to where I was when I first started with Karen, and realize that there were a few really pivotal things she said or asked me that really changed my approach for the better.

Through simple questions to make me think about the bigger picture of a breakup I went through, Karen helped me gain closure on it. The questions she asked have helped me, and will continue to, when self-reflecting on situations. She’s a great active listener and I’m glad to have had her as my therapist.
