About

Selected "2017 South Haven Best Family Therapist" and with 30+ years experience, I help clients find solutions which enrich lives and heal wounded hearts and spirits. Working as a team and using techniques and exercises, you can reach your potential and find your emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. You are the director, script-writer and producer of your life. Using psychodynamic, family systems, and dream work analysis, I assist you in the process of making your life be what you want. If you do the work of therapy, you and your life will never be the same!
As a licensed clinical social worker, dream analyst, and trained mediator, I specialize in individual, family, and marriage therapy in both individual and group settings. Other specialties are substance abuse and sexual assault while treating other mental health conditions, including anxiety and depression. My clients range in age from 5 to adults.
With highest regard for confidentiality and integrity, I practice using the Adult/Parent/Child methodology of Transactional Analysis. Straightforward in my approach, I promote conflict resolution skills, and autonomy, responsibility, choices and consequences of choices. Together we will establish your goals and implement strategies for a healthier, happier YOU!

Karen Moore Tolen's Groups

Relationship Support Group

This casual, drop-in basis group meets to examine the principles of a healthy relationship -- what does a healthy relationship look like and what are the components. We are all involved in relationships: co-workers, family, friends, loved ones, etc.... With a focus on problem solving and analysis, the discussion is group-led. In this open-ended group, attendance varies from month-to-month, but participation is always lively!

More about this group

Grief Support Group

This casual group meets to discuss grief which stems from many sources: loss of a job, loss of health, loss of a loved one, loss of a pet, etc....The discussion is group led with some education, but mostly support and compassion, with tips from those with the grief experience.

More about this group

Sexual Survivors Support Group

This by-invitation-only, closed, confidential group meets weekly to process a very intense, emotionally laden topic using Christian based material in which the survivors learn about the damage of secrets, feelings, shame, blame, self-loathing, responsibility, forgiveness, control, and acceptance. Attendance must be a priority; homework, completed; and participants fully share and participate in the confidential discussion.
