My specialities include: grief/loss, anxiety, pregnancy loss, relationship issues, communication, loss of relationship, codependency concerns, self esteem issues, women's issues , trauma, depression, career concerns, and mood disorders.
I believe healing and hope is for everyone. We all get stuck and need someone to listen and help us navigate the challenges life inevitably throws our way. We hold the answers to our problems, but having a caring and honoring presence can help us become unstuck. I see counseling as an important part of our journey to becoming the best version of ourselves in all areas of our lives. I approach clients with compassion, empathy, and kindness to work collaboratively on whatever you are going through.

I utilize a variety of tool sets, including positive psychology, cognitive behavioral techniques, relaxation/meditation, strengths coaching, personality analysis, and as I consult on women's issues , utilize gender specific research.
Those who come to me are typically looking to become more confident and self assured, feel happier, communicate clearly and confidently, ease anxiety stemming from public speaking or interpersonal interaction, and/or find a fulfilling relationship or recover from a bad one. I am an action oriented coach, and use exercises and tangible tools to increase "stickiness," and forming of new neural pathways. I want to be clear that I am a coach, not a psychologist, therefore if you are experiencing any significant psychological difficulties, I suggest www.drhelenekarlin.com.

I believe my purpose is to connect with women, men, and young people in such a way that the trauma they have experienced no longer has a hold on them physically, emotionally, or spiritually. I support my clients through the process of defining who they are and who they want to become in healthy relationships with themselves and others. I am a partner with my clients as they embrace opportunities to be transformed. I help illuminate the intersection among race, class, gender, and trauma, and how this intersection shapes who we all are as evolving human beings.

Let’s be honest and talk about why you’re here… On the outside, everything is in its place and yet, something still feels off. Maybe you’re emotionally exhausted from constantly pouring into others and struggling to maintain healthy boundaries or asserting your needs. Or perhaps you’re mentally exhausted from overthinking and trying to balance all the moving pieces in your life.
