Karen Grayson, PhD, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Kirkwood
Do you want to live a more awake, socially aware, and spiritually-vibrant life? You can. It doesn't matter whether you describe yourself as troubled or stable; mentally ill or emotionally well. If you seek growth and renewal, come see me. I offer a combination of compassionate gentle listening and reflective clarifying dialogue to facilitate deep inner work for healing and transformation. Our sessions will help you gain insight into your own unique internal and abundant wisdom. It's in you. We just have to help you find it and listen in more carefully.
My clients are not taken in by the external conditions of life; they seek inward change. If you want to face negative beliefs, fears and confusions inside yourself, let's get started. I use powerful and elegant tools of Philosophy, Spirituality, and Psychotherapy in support of our work.
My clients desire spiritual renewal beyond the worst trappings of organized religion. Some have a dedicated faith community; others don't. Christians, Buddhists, Inter-Spiritual Seekers and SBNRs feel at home in my office and in group workshops. Teachers I love include: Pema Chodron, Rob Bell, Eckhart Tolle, Ken Wilber, and Brene Brown.
