Hello, I am Karen and I have over 20 years of experience as a marriage and family therapist (LMFT) and mental health counselor (LMHC). Helping people improve the quality of their relationships is my passion! To help with immediate relief, I work from Solution Focused Brief Therapy to empower you and get you moving in the direction you desire. I am also trained in Family Systems Theory which takes a comprehensive approach to addressing issues for the long term. I believe that both couples contribute to problems in a relationship. We can't change others but a change in you can change your relationships. I am happy to meet you where you are and go at your pace whether that is baby steps toward a goal or dealing with sudden, massive life changes. I can help you see things from a different perspective by asking thought provoking questions. I like to emphasize your strengths as a couple while supporting you learning new skills. Together, we will determine together what you want and need to achieve your goals.

I think Karen is an excellent counselor who cares about her clients. She really gets to know her clients and their needs. She consistently follows with my wife and I to see how we are doing. She has a lot of experience and it is evident. I recommend Karen to any couple who is having a difficult time in their marriage.
We have been speaking with Karen for a little bit now. She is quick to respond and seems very invested in helping us. I highly recommend her.
Very helpful and friendly. I feel like I can be honest and won't be judged which is important.
Feel confident that she had my best in mind at all times.
She’s extremely well at responding and addressing any concerns we have. She has been fantastic to work with!
Karen has helped me in many ways. She has helped me to take steps instead of jumps. She helps me to realize that I am worthy, & strong. I strongly agree with everything she has ever said. I highly recommend her. She is fast at replying. She checks up on me on a weekly basis & lets me know when she won’t be online. Karen is good at what she does & I hope she continues to stay on Regain!
