About Me

Hello and welcome to my profile. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with the state of Missouri. I have over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist, life coach, hypnotherapist, Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy and inner child work. I have experience working with clients with a wide range of concerns including, but not limited to; depression, anxiety, relationship issues, addictions, PTSD, trauma, and physical, sexual and emotional abuse, eating disorders and substance abuse. In addition to my formal education, I have over a decade in study and practice with meditation, spiritual direction and what is commonly referred to as the "Law of Attraction."

My counseling style is non-judgmental and accepting. One of my greatest gifts to you as a therapist is deep listening. I promise you will feel safe and comfortable to explore the issues and concerns that you are currently facing. My counseling approach combines Transpersonal and Humanistic theories with Inner Child work, Mindfulness/Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Neuro Linguistic Programming and Hypnosis . Because your situation is unique to you, I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs . I am here to listen to you and your story; to support you through whatever it is that you are going through right now. You are not alone.

It takes courage and determination to seek a more fulfilling and happier life. If not now, when? If you are ready to take that first step, I am here to walk alongside you, to support you and empower you. I look forward to meeting you.

Karen helped me see a lot of positives within myself when I didn't before. She is so understanding and I felt like I could really talk to her and share things without being judged. She always responded so quickly to my thoughts and questions, giving me so much to think about and tools to help myself. Being listened to and understood helped so much, and I am so thankful to have Karen as my counsellor.

Karen has been such an amazing help in my life. I came to her unsure and broken emotionally and she’s kindly but firmly (sometimes you need some real talk) lead me back to having confidence and feeling full of life. Our time together has been amazing. Not only would I recommend her, I HAVE recommended BetterHelp and Karen on my public social media pages.

I'm really enjoying working with Karen. She is challenging me to dig deep for answers and learn about what is going on and how best to deal with everything.
Her support is invaluable and I would not hesitate to encourage others to work with her.

I am enjoying being able to use the service of BetterHelp. Karen has been very helpful and I am feeling more comfortable about talking about less comfortable things.

Written by R.O. on Nov 19, 2018 after counseling with Karen for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, grief, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

I've only worked with Karen for a few weeks due to some breakup issue and grief I was having. She was extremely responsive and always made herself available. We sometimes exchanged messages multiple times a day. We also had a video conference which was very helpful, too. I really liked that she listened very carefully and always tried to understand my concerns and fears before suggesting anything. I liked working with Karen and I can only recommend her to anyone who's going through a tough time right now.

Written by S.A. on Nov 14, 2018 after counseling with Karen for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

I've been working with Karen for about a month and already feel that I've benefitted a lot from her counselling expertise. She listens without judgement and offers a kind of 'advice' that is more about encouraging me to explore my thoughts and patterns. I have been looking for ways to improve my sense of mindfulness, and working with Karen, I feel I'm well on my way to achieving this goal.

Karen is very professional in her approach and is fantastic at making you feel comfortable to open up. She is very relatable and is able to relay her advise on a matter directly and with an understanding. I highly recommend her services to anyone needing someone to talk too and seeking professional advice.
