    Very helpful and active in session.

  • Mark S.

    She did a wonderful job focusing our discussion on meaningful goals and results. We saw Karen to help us through an upcoming sticky family gathering and her counseling made the gathering a success. She turned a probable crisis into a happy experience!

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Couples - Typically we start together and identify areas to adress and develop a treatment plan.  If one or both members are "leaning out" and having commitment problems we use a short-term approach to identify a mutually agreeable path towards separation or time-limited full-out attempt to restore marriage (partnership) to health.

With children/teens we start with parent(s) individually to identify problem or with minor in the room to adress goals and privacy issues.

It is easy to set up an appointment by phone, email or text and I will send you intake paperwork
