About Me

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.

Written by R.I. on Aug 04, 2020 after counseling with Karen for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

My wife and I really enjoy working with Karen. Her educational background is credible, and she is an expert in two fields that apply to our specific situation. She mediates fairly and always has manageable activities and assignments that seem to be helping my wife and I communicate better. We have a lot of work to do, but we plan on sticking with Karen, as we feel she is the right fit for us. Thank You!

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!
