Relationships are the foundation of our lives. Family relationships, romantic relationships, parent/child relationships. These are the connections that make our lives joyful and full. At other times they can be stressful, unstable and uncertain. Navigating through valuable relationships can be confusing and scary at times. It is often hard to understand why the most important people in our lives are the people we struggle most to connect with.

Life is ever changing and evolving. At times change brings with it a sense of excitement and joy, and at other times a turn of events leaves us disappointed, overwhelmed, sad, or disconnected from others and ourselves. Although therapy cannot stop the ups and downs of living, it can help us develop new strategies, new perceptions, and new behaviors that transform feelings of self-doubt and despair into resilient feelings of inner strength and fulfillment. I provide a safe, confidential and caring environment, and bring a heartfelt and genuine approach to support you in finding joy and inner peace.

The journey through the ever-changing stages of life can at times be difficult and overwhelming. When we experience loneliness, depression, fear, or disconnection, our relationships to others and to our true selves can become closed off, leaving us feeling isolated and in pain. No one should have to navigate these challenges alone. By seeking new support, you can gain awareness and perspective on what is happening within and around you, and become better equipped to care for yourself and nourish your relationships.

Our subconscious mind holds the memories and perceptions of every experience from childhood to adulthood. And as we continue our journey, the unresolved past continues to negatively affect our bodies, influence our thoughts, behaviors and everyday life on an unconscious level. We may not understand why we feel or react as we do to certain situations or why the same patterns show up every time and unexplained symptoms and/or circumstances keep repeating themselves. Often this prevents us from moving forward with our lives, achieve clarity and authenticity.

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.
