Welcome to therapy! Whether you’re here for the first time or you’re returning for a check-up you have made the decision to care for yourself. Therapy is about you and what change you want to see for yourself so when you engage with Karin for therapy you won’t be talked AT but an equal partner in the process to reach your goals. You will be involved in all stages from goal setting to problem solving. Karin’s ultimate goal in therapy is for you feel confident in your own abilities to confront and deal with the obstacles ahead of you. Karin takes a conversational approach to identify and explore assumptions that may be holding you back and challenge you to use your strengths to grow into who you know you are.
