About me

I am a therapist licensed to practice in Florida, Illinois, and Iowa. I have 15 + years of experience in issues from depression, anxiety, gender identity, same-sex relationships, alternative relationships, trauma and abuse, and family issues. My therapeutic style is warm and is taken from Humanistic /Client Centered Theory, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy; Trauma Focused Therapy; Mindfulness Theory, and Reality Therapy. I have 57+ hours post-masters in Gender Studies and believe all peoples should live their lives fully and understand how to make their unique style and relationships work for them.

Please note I am available during the workweek via appointment and messaging. I normally check messages three to five times per day during the week. I am not available from Thursday at 6 pm until Tuesday at 9 am.

Karyn is so kind, understanding and empathetic. I truly feel like she hears me, asks thought provoking questions and gives me actionable steps to work towards my goals. I am so glad I was paired with her!

Karyn is fantastic. Helped me learn a lot about myself. She used a very cognitive learning approach that allowed me to grow as a person and to recognize toxic behaviors and impulses in myself. Highly recommend.

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.
