As a licensed marriage and family therapist we will work together
on resolving conflicts, and learning new coping skills for the stressors you are experiencing.

I am creative in helping clients find their strengths in challenging situations by applying effective therapeutic and inter-personal skills. I use an eclectic approach embracing CBT, solution focused therapy and EFT and Gottman method for couples. I have a

I am South African; I have lived and worked in many multicultural settings which has equipped me with compassion and understanding for differences in culture and beliefs. My life experience as a wife, mother, grandmother and educator, has been beneficial in broadening my understanding as a professional in my career as a licensed therapist.
Remember : whatever the problem, there is always hope, a new day and a new beginning....

Karin Wiese is a good listener that do have the compassion to help but do not rush the process. Out of the two secessions I had, it appears that she rather seek for a permanent and correct solution than a quick fix. In other words a personal growth.
