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!!

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.
