"Deciding to seek therapy is a courageous step in the direction of growth." Karen

If you decide to seek therapy with me, you will find that I am thoughtful, candid, and supportive. I am a professional who does my job with a deep sense of compassion and expertise.

Therapeutic Approach

Meeting new clients, hearing their life stories, and witnessing their growth and change is a privilege and honor for me. In my practice, I provide clients a place to work through the issues that interfere with their ability to live a more purposeful and content life.

Therapeutic Specialties

I offer individual therapy to women dealing with:
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • life/work balance
  • relationship issues
  • recovery from childhood trauma
  • childrearing concerns

I have a special interest in working with women of all ages

  • helping the younger ones navigate the trials and tribulations of adulthood
  • helping the moms cope with the demands of parenthood
  • walking with the older women as they step fully into their own lives.



About Karen

I grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia and graduated with a B.S. in Special Education from the University of Virginia in 1977. I have 33 years of experience working with families and children as a counselor and family advocate. In 2001, I obtained my Master's in Psychology from Antioch University Seattle.

I truly enjoy my job. I love working with women of any age who are interested in living their best lives and finding the courage to push through life's hard moments. I believe in the resiliency of the human spirit and in one's capacity to grow and heal.

When not working, I garden, quilt, read, cook, travel, and create and admire beauty. I have a fantastic sense of humor and a wonderful family that sustain me through life's ups and downs.
