Karen was great in helping me process past events in my life. I feel like my confidence has improved since meeting with her and my coping skills have greatly improved. My mindset has turned a bit more positive and while I'm not where I want to be yet, the skills she had taught me will really help in getting me there.

Karin is a very compassionate person who diligently works with me to reveal my true self and find my inner, unrealized desires. She gives me homework that inspires me to follow my dreams, be a better person, and take time for self-care. She is a safe place where I can bare my emotions but she also encourages me.

It's been great to talk to Karin - I feel she has the patience to allow me to express myself and I feel like I can be really honest with her and I trust her judgment/observations. This is really important to me.

Work with me!
