Karen is always so kind and understanding. I feel like I could share anything with her and there would be no judgement, only grace and encouragement. She’s a wonderful Christian woman.

Karen is a lovely therapist who listens and even shares her own experiences, which calms any nerves and allows for a feeling of warmth and acceptance.

Karen is a special human. She has found her gift and made it her profession. She creates a safe place to "be". The loss of my mother was the biggest loss of my life. Karen was my first experience with therapy. Karen's gentle, calm, trusting nature and faith based style of practice, allowed me to be THE most vulnerable that I've been in my life. Her faith based style was not overbearing or brow beating, but just the right pace and level for me. She listens, advises and when appropriate adds just the right amount of humor and realness to a very difficult situation. I feel so fortunate to have had Karen as my introduction to therapy.

I highly recommend Karen.
