Karen is great! She listens, responds and is very professional.
Karen is wonderful! Woking hard to get to the root of my situation;asking questions and assessing what my issue is. She offers advice on how to proceed.
Karen is responsive, understanding, and just texting her reduces my anxiety.
I HIGHLY recommend Karen!!
Very understanding from both perspectives and helps with negotiations well!
She is caring and always checks in on us. She gives us suggestions and paperwork to help.
She is patient, calm, actively listens and has appropriate responses for my partner and me.
I appreciate Karen being my therapist.
Thanks, Karen you helped with suggestions to help with our long-distance relationship times by face time breakfast together and planning our next get together in advance. You also helped us realize sometimes we don't need to solve a discussion right then and there especially if someone is tired we need to respect others energy levels and we might be in a better mood the next day to provide a better answer vs trying to win an argument at the moment.
Karen has helped my relationship so much! She’s very understanding and compassionate.
Amazing, absolutely phenomenal, kind caring listens to each party. I’m leaving to soon and need more time with her, if I return I will be requesting her. Thank you for your help Karen.
Awesome experience. Gets back to you quickly and checks on you.
Karen has been very helpful in strategized ideas that improved our situation. I am very happy that Karen's expertise was used all the way until a solution was reached.
We have not had our first session with Karen yet but already she has followed up and made us feel supported. Her desire to provide assistance is conveyed through her messages so far. We are really looking forward not working with her.
Karen was helpful, very responsive and offered great suggestions to help with our issues. I would recommend her.
Karen has been amazing. She always reiterates whatever I say back to me to make sure she understands exactly what I am saying, so I know she is understanding me. She is a great communicator during sessions and through messaging. I HIGHLY recommend her.
Karen is a very responsive counselor. She listens and repeats for clarification which is really helpful. She responds in a timely manner with texts and really aims to help with better communication.
Karen is very supportive and responds to my texts in a timely fashion. She is very professional and knowledgeable and I am very happy to have matched with her who cares about me as a person and offers advices that relate with my concerns. She seems to look out for me as I express my complicated situation with her. Will definitely recommend! Thank you, Karen! I appreciate you so much!
