Karen Waugh's bio

This content was provided by Karen Waugh "I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker-SUPV (LISW-S) and Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor-Clinical Supervisor (LICDC-CS), specializing in working with adult individuals and couples. I have been in private practice in Columbus for over 12 years. A native of Columbus, I completed both the Bachelor's and Master's degrees at The Ohio State University. In addition to private practice work, my professional experience includes practice as an administrator, educator and workshop facilitator within public, private, academic and corrections settings. I also served as an adjunct faculty member for five years with Columbus State Community College's, Mental Health/Addiction Studies/Developmental Disabilities program."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Karen Waugh "Because I believe it is important to examine issues from a holistic perspective, I discuss the integration of strengths as they relate to the five life domains: emotional, mental, physical, relational and spiritual.  Having stated that...it is also very important that clients feel a connection with their therapist. My desire is to provide an environment in which clients feel comfortable, and confident that their needs are being addressed.   Once we've had an opportunity to speak over the phone or face-to-face, if either of us believes that your needs would be better served by another therapist or a therapist with a specialty of which I am unfamiliar, I will do whatever I can to provide you with an appropriate referral.  My goal is to help you."
