"The information is priceless and it just helps to motivate me to do better and be better as a clinician." - Kharyn, LMSW

"From above: Karen!!! Always learn so much always extremely engaging. Always great energy. Can see and feel she does the work herself, actually really does. Feels authentic. Feels a very knowledgeable peer never condescending seeming. Love her and her teaching Always so engaged could listen to her for days !!! I keep my membership for Karen and wish I knew exactly which courses she teaches. Her courses are envigorating and feel real and authentic unlike a person who researches and teaches but doesn't do the work. Love her teaching !!!!" - Kelly, LMHC

"Karen was great as always. She explained everything in a manner that was easy to understand and follow. She offered many skills and techniques that can I can put into practice immediately.
