Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Karen is a very compassionate and competent counselor. She is reassuring and nonjudgmental , which is key when fragile feelings are involved, yet she is not hesitant to gently guide you toward the changes you may need to make to feel better. Karen used a variety of approaches in counseling, dependent on the problem we were dealing with, and was always open to and supportive of any ideas I wanted to try or input I had. She is extremely client focused, flexible, and available.Helped me immensely.

She is very old school and does not possess the ability to treat complex situations. She does not have the ability to treat patients as often as they need and will leave you high and dry once things get tough

Karen has helped me work through intense feelings and memories in a safe and therapeutic way. Because of our work together, she knows when it is safe to deal with these feelings or memories and when it is not. I have appreciated the use of diverse strategies and approaches when addressing issues. Karen is a dedicated and caring therapist.
