About Karen & Lexi

Hi there, I'm Karen!

My approach to providing therapy is taking a look at the whole picture, including the client's childhood, worldview, and current problem areas, and clearing out anything that could be holding them back from happiness and peace. I use EMDR, CBT, DBT, Psychoanalysis, and more, to uncover what led to the current undesirable thoughts and behaviors.

My priority is to provide a warm and empathetic space for my clients to be seen and heard, free from judgment. Many experiences led me to my career as a therapist, including needing my own hero. I absolutely love my job! :) Goal setting is a collaborative experience. It is important to set reasonable expectations and start small if needed.

During the first session, we will discuss topics that will help me get to know them better. My goal is to help clients feel as comfortable as possible in session.

Lexi (middle name Rose), was found wandering the streets of San Diego with her dog mom, who refused to feed her, and brought to a foster home. One day, I was lucky enough to have come across her cute photo on the rescue foundation's website. When I picked her up, it was love at first sight. We have been inseparable ever since! Her favorite toys are her bear, pizza, and skunk. She loves to eat, give kisses, and act sassy any chance she gets.
