Having gone through a divorce with very young children, Karen is aware of the struggles that a newly separated family can be faced with. At that time struggling to raise two young children and cope with the stress and uncertainty of being a newly single mother seemed like a daunting task. Gaining strength from family, friends and a good therapist helped her move past being the stressed out, frightened single mother to a remarried, confident, capable and strong wife, mother and therapist.
Through her training, work experience and personal experience, Karen brings an empathetic and understanding approach to managing emotions and stress during these difficult times. Having a therapist that has been through the struggles of divorce, has co-parented with an ex-husband and has managed to blend a new step family encourages clients that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that the work that you put into your life, your new single life, is what you will get out of it in the end.
Karen is honest, easy to talk to and open up to. Therapy sessions can seem more like being with an old friend and sharing your feelings rather than a session with a practitioner.
