Karen believes that everyone wants to be heard and validated. In the genuinely warm, kind, caring, safe and empathetic environment that she creates, Karen will give you the time and space you need to figure out how to lead a more meaningful, creative and satisfying existence. Life transitions can be very scary for both the young and the old alike, and can seem confusing and overwhelming at times, often creating anxiety or depression. Once you begin to deal with difficult and often painful issues, the process of healing can begin, and you will be freer to become more fully present in your life and relationships.
Karen works with adults over 18, and uses a combination of psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, and mindfulness techniques.
Karen also has many years of experience in adolescent and adult education. She immigrated to the United States from South Africa almost 30 years ago, and is married with 2 daughters.
