Testimonials

Periodically I request anonymous feedback from my clients to make sure I'm on track and providing good service.  These are some of the things clients have said over the years about working with me.  

Client Feedback About Couples Counseling

"Karen is the sole reason I am still married, and SO happy in my marriage. She is a completely neutral sounding board, but gently guided me into seeing what I could do better in my marriage, and what my triggers and insecurities are. She is a gentle, calming presence, and I feel like she truly cares about mine and my husband's well-being. I always feel less stressed and happier when I leave my sessions with her. I can not say enough good things about her, and recommend her without hesitation!!!"

"Karen was great to work with. She listened to us and helped us talk through things. When we told her we didn't want kids, she believed us - unlike every other person we've ever talked to. She was sweet and frank." 

"Karen is wonderful. She has, essentially, saved our relationship. My boyfriend was hesitant about engaging in counseling at all, and even he likes her! She has a great sense of humor, while maintaining her professionalism. Karen really knows her stuff, and I especially appreciate when she is straightforward and honest. She is also warm and kind. I would recommend Karen (and have!)." 

"My wife and I worked very closely with Karen for more than a year. During that time we resolved a variety of issues that had eroded our relationship to the point we could hardly hold on to the goodness between us. Karen fostered our communication and helped us to regain the trust we had lost. We both consider her a good friend and look forward to working with her in the future." 

"She gave us all the tools to save our relationship. We wouldn't be together if it wasn't for Karen." 

"Karen is great! She is easy to talk to and has fantastic people skills. She makes it easy to step outside of your comfort zone, open up to new ideas and to take the first step in trying something new..." 

"I am no longer afraid of seeing a counselor. You have made this a great experience and helped us save our relationship!" 

"We were referred to Karen by a friend and I would absolutely refer her to another friend."

"Relationship problems? Talk to someone who is current and articulate. Talk to Karen first! She can help you."

"My wife and I both feel extremely comfortable talking with Karen. There was an instant rapport and sense of ease. Karen seems to know exactly how to process our rambling into something constructive and present it back in a helpful manner."

"Karen has saved my relationship with my husband during some really difficult times - and we are so lucky to have her as a guide!"



On Premarital Counseling

"We both agree that it was the best money spent on the wedding! You gave us so much to think and talk about, that we hadn't considered, and we have continued to use the tools you offered us. Our time with you, and the "homework", really feel like an investment in our life together, and provided us areas we can continue to talk about, learn, and grow. Thank you for that!"

"Karen was super helpful in our pre-marital counseling. She worked efficiently with us to cover all the bases necessary for us to feel great about this next step in our lives. Even though my (now) husband and I had been together for 5 years when we saw Karen, she was able to ask questions of us that we shared with each other, that was both news to us. Thanks again."

"In premarital counseling Karen helped us to not only recognize the things that are exceptional about our relationship, but also face the hard topics that can easily be brushed under the carpet and cause problems later. Our meetings really prepared a foundation of understanding for us to build our trust in each other over the years. Thanks, Karen!" 



On Individual Counseling and Personal Growth

"Karen is one in a million! The time I spent with Karen was truly life changing for me. The support and guidance I received is something that I will never forget." 

"Karen is a very qualified and caring professional. She has helped me through a very difficult time in my life. She was always caring and compassionate and provided me with the tools to help myself find my way back. I will be eternally grateful for the love and support she has shown me."

"Karen offers a patient and supportive ear.  She guides you to find solutions on your own. I never felt judged regardless of the intimate details I shared with her.  She allowed me to explore my relationship and offered insight I couldn't have found on my own." 

"I met with Karen during a very difficult break-up. Karen was vital in giving me an outsider's professional perspective while being supportive and encouraging of my progress. She was realistic and had a positive and gentle way of "giving it to you straight."

"Karen was not only a therapist to me, but a friend. I looked forward to my sessions with her - it was similar to talking to friend, in the compassion and sense of openness she exuded. Yet she was extremely insightful and really was able to hone in on the underlying issues, in order to make a change. I would recommend Karen to anyone. She helped turn my life around. I am very grateful to Karen."

"I do not believe that my personal growth would be at its existing level without Karen's guidance. Books help, but there is nothing like the insights that Karen provides. She has been instrumental with helping me to find those pathways that have not only greatly improved my relationships, but also my career to. Looking into my own issues and working through these has been one of the best things I have done from myself"

"I'd just like to personally thank her for all the growth over the year of intensive work we did together. Thank her for holding that space for me and for guiding me through that chapter of my life. I'm forever grateful."

"Many "professionals" charge an arm and a leg and boast educational backgrounds, training that may rival or prove superior to Karen's, ok....that's nice, but results, sincerity, and a relationship that fosters openness and thriving is what measures therapy success. She makes sense. She can deal with anything thrown her way, no matter how personal, embarrassing, shameful....I'd HIGHLY recommend Karen and I have......"

"Karen is the best! Always able to meet when needed, open to new ideas, easy to communicate with."

"She rocks!" 

"Karen was extremely calm and intuitive with a knack at getting to the issue and great strategies for growth."

"As a busy professional woman, dating after divorce felt more difficult to navigate than graduate school. I am thankful for Karen's guidance, wisdom and healing with a compassionate heart. I have been able to recognize and work on dysfunction patterns that were in my behavior and belief system. If you are in a relationship transition, learning how to be single again, or trying to take your relationship to a deeper level, I strongly recommend working with Karen." 

"Karen is empathetic, compassionate, insightful, and not to mention, a great listener. Her ability to focus on what tools may help me, individually, overcome my challenges allow for progress every week."

"Karen was the most down to earth counselor I've been to and I've been struggling with issues since I was a teenager. She helped me to feel inspired and cared about. I felt she truly cared about me as a person and not just a client. She even gave me her email address to counsel me when I didn't have an appointment as part of the process. This was so helpful since I could free flow my feelings and process things when they came to the surface and not have to wait for the appointment. I strongly recommend Karen and have to several of my close friends."
