I appreciate that Karyn was able to so quickly perceive my needs and each session is able to guide me in meeting them. I wasn’t sure that I would be able to relate to a therapist I hadn’t met in person but I was immediately comfortable with Karyn.

I feel we are starting to connect after such a short time together. I was hesitant on opening up emotionally on our first appointment, but by our second appointment she got me to start connecting to my feelings and not just my inner observations.

Karyn has always been on time for appointments, and responds in a timely way to messages. I feel heard and understood by her. She was an excellent match for me.
