At a particularly low time in my life, I felt lost and defeated and quite exhausted trying to stay afloat. Although I had seen other therapists before and thought I knew what to expect, it soon became clear to me that Karen’s Cognitive Behavioral method of treatment is different. Her attentiveness, and lack of judgment, combined with her spot on intuition and her ability to listen, hear, and see me for who I am, is extremely comforting. I always leave her office feeling more grounded and hopeful.
In my four years of working with Karen, she has been extremely helpful in all aspects of my life. With Karen’s compassion, knowledge, and support, I have been able to tackle very sensitive issues with many positive results. I would recommend Karen to anyone who wants a therapist.
Karen is a terrific clinical LCSW supervisor. She fostered a safe learning environment for group supervision, which she tailored well to meet the specific needs of our group. I found Karen to be incredibly knowledgeable and very generous in sharing knowledge and resources. She has been so supportive of me and my professional growth as a therapist, and I continue to utilize her as a resource. I strongly recommend Karen as a clinical supervisor.
The qualities I have enjoyed over many years of working with Karen are her patience, empathy, honesty, and sense of humor. I particular appreciate her down-to-earth quality and lack of pretense or dogma. As a result of our work together, I enjoy life more and feel increasingly more accepting of myself, more willing to try new things, and more confident in my abilities and decision-making.
