She con-tinues to pursue further education for trauma, restoring secure attachment, PTSD, the burgeon-ing field of neuroscience, the somatic approach to healing trauma and self compassion.
Karen provides a safe and caring environment in which to honour your goals and how you choose to pursue them. Each individual has strengths they may not be in touch with and their own nature and ways of thinking, feeling and processing. The treatment plan takes into account the severity of the problem and the time available. Aspects from different therapies can be wo-ven together to create an individualized approach that most suits you and is most effective for you. As tackling problems that may have become overwhelming is so personal, Karen offers a ten minute or so phone conversation at no charge so you can evaluate the strength and com-fortability of the client-therapist match.
