Through somatic therapy one can learn how the mind-body forms and interacts with specific environments. It is from this place that a vast amount of untapped resources can be found and the innate wisdom of the body resides. Allow me to support you in connecting to this place within yourself and disentangling from your habits and barriers to live a fuller life. We will work together to analyze and change old patterns to form new habits. I am certified in animal-assisted therapy and work with a variety of furry co-therapists. I am kink-positive and work with consensual non-monogamy. I look forward to supporting your journey!

My focus and passion is sexual health and I work with people of all ages. Sexuality is an important source of identity, connection and pleasure, but I also recognize the ways in which shame, trauma, and limited/unhelpful learning about sex contributes to a lot of common sexual problems and conflict in relationships. I support clients with a variety of goals including improving your sex life, dealing with sexual pain, working through sexual “dysfunctions,” exploring sexual preferences, and dealing with out-of-control sexual behavior. I also work with parents, teens and families on issues related to sexuality.

Narrative therapy is committed to a relational and contextual view of people and their problems. It explores the social or cultural implications that may be responsible for problems taking control over a person's life. Narrative therapy seeks alternative avenues for people to stand up to their problems instead of being defined by them. Through skilled therapeutic questioning, rich dialogue flows throughout the therapy conversation, creating space for healing to begin. After each session of therapy, Karen writes a therapeutic letter to her clients. The letter continues the conversation and includes questions for further reflection.

My practice is based on the premise that any issue presented in therapy has deep emotional and psychological roots. At times these roots are recognized; mostly, not. The clients who achieve the highest degree of success in terms of resolution of presenting issues, personal growth, life satisfaction, and relationship enhancement are those who are willing to overcome resistance and emotional discomfort in order to root out the painful, dysfunctional origins of their presented issues, The courage, persistence, and resilience displayed during their therapeutic journey serve them well.

Have you ever had that moment when suddenly you see a situation in a new light and your perspective changes for the better? My aim with therapy is to facilitate that "a-ha" moment for yourself within the struggle that is bringing you into therapy. By providing a validating and trusting space we can be curious about emotions without shaming or shutting them down. We can explore the story we tell ourselves and the meaning we give our lives. Sometimes we can't break out of certain behaviors/anxieties and need an outside, non-judgmental observer to help us see our patterns because we are "in it" and too close to see the big picture.
