About Karen

Karen uses a unique, heart centered and intuitive approach to help clients push past limiting beliefs, let go of long standing hurts, heal traumas,  surpass obstacles,  trounce debilitating negative thinking and actually see their lives transformed. With Karen’s methods, clients report they often experience a new level of peace and even joy in their personal lives and relationships.

Best of all, they walk away with options to work on towards a solution or at the very least, the next step.


Because her life has been dedicated to growth and learning, she has a large array of tools to draw from to help clients overcome their problems, issues, dilemmas and challenges. Using and combining those tools along with incorporating what she’s learned from her own personal experiences, she has successfully changed the lives of literally hundreds of people starting with her own first. Karen not only helps them heal but inspires and motivates them to continue on to find a purpose in life. Clients find all this hard to believe when they first come into therapy but her track record speaks for itself.
