About Karen
I have 15 years of experience as a clinical social worker and psychotherapist.  
During this time, I have worked with adults and children in a variety of
settings such as
private practice, outpatient clinics, early intervention (birth-3),
and schools. Prior to entering the social work field I practiced law.

My
professional work is also informed by my experience as a parent.  When I
became a mother,
I struggled with postpartum depression and had difficulty
coping with one of my children's
medical issues.  With support, I gradually
overcame these challenges and gained a deeper appreciation for our family's
strengths.  
Through this process I became increasingly drawn to helping others
during the transition to parenthood.
