Motherhood was the catalyst of change for Karen. In a great deal of emotional pain for most of her life – which stemmed from the rocky relationship with her own mother; she coped by engaging in multiple destructive behaviors. Realizing that she was destroying everything important to her, she knew something had to change. She was not the mom, wife or woman she wanted to be and she knew she was created to be so much more.
In addition to her formal training; Karen's most meaningful learning comes from her insatiable desire to figure out how to be the woman and mom she knows she is meant to be.
After working together, her clients have more time to devote to themselves. They has the confidence to follow their passions and have a renewed purpose to their lives. Their lives emulate what they want for their children. They are an inspiration to everyone around them.
Her clients are able to create lasting and sustainable changes.
Karen wants this for you.
