Her approach to Therapy is Person-Centered and her couples work is heavily influenced by Imago couples work of Harville Hendrix.

Her goal in therapy is to assist her clients in gaining a greater understanding of themselves and offer tools to assist them with living more fully. She offers a trusting environment where her clients can feel safe to express their feelings and concerns. Karen focuses on each person’s unique concerns and experiences and assists them in accessing their own potential for growth and change.

In addition to counseling, Karen’s other passion is for the healing nature of the voice and she utilizes her own voice as an instrument for well-being through song, chant, and toning.
