Wisdom tells me I am nothing. Love tells me I am everything. And between the two my life flows.

Not Accepting Clients Until Spring 2020 - Please let us know if you’d like to be placed on Karen’s waiting list!

My style is warm, interactive, and creative.

I blend expertise and intuition, drawing from a varied toolkit to creatively meet each client’s personality, interest, and goals. This includes working with cognition and behavior, emotions and anxiety, dreams and images, somatic experiences, spirituality, and our responses to the socio-political climate in which we live.

I am especially effective at helping people sort out complicated jumbles of thoughts and feelings, thus becoming clear on what values are in conflict and what one really wants.

I become my clients’ trusted ally, offering exercises and practical tools when appropriate, and listening with compassion and acceptance when a caring presence is what they need most.

I’ve explored art, activism, and parenting. I’ve worked in corporations, start-ups, non-profits, and small businesses. I am multilingual and multicultural. I have a lot of life experience to draw from, to join you in making sense of yours.
