“Karen’s life coaching was invaluable to me as I transitioned from full-time tech CEO to board advisor, consultant, and versatile mentor to others. Karen helped me accept and embrace my new professional status, which was initially very difficult for me. Using the tools she provided, I now have achieved a much better work/life balance, and thoroughly enjoy my favorite activities—travel, books, and most of all, my close friends.”

Bathsheba M., Consultant

Welcome to my website. Maybe you know you want coaching or maybe you know you want counseling/therapy. Maybe you don’t know the difference between the two (and you’re not alone if you don’t). My goal with this website is to give you an idea of who I am, how therapy and coaching work, and how I work so that you have the information you need to decide if I might be a good match for you and your needs.

Anti-Racism Statement and Related Coaching Offer

I recognize that racism affects everyone, especially those who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). I am committed to lifelong learning about white privilege, injustices towards BIPOC, and my own implicit biases. I seek to address inequities, confront racism, and promote the voices of people who are frequently silenced.

As one way of  living this commitment, I am accepting a free-will offering from BIPOC for 30-minute coaching sessions. Availability subject to scheduling constraints
