Karen is passionate about coming alongside people, humbly helping them discover who they've been created to be. There is nothing quite like seeing the look in a person's eyes when the Spirt of God applies the Word of God to their heart, empowering them to embrace the transforming work of God's grace. Karen is familiar with a number of life's hardships, and firmly believes that the grace and comfort with which God has her blessed her is to be poured out for others.
In addition to her Fieldstone Counseling experience, Karen has also served in various roles of discipling, coaching and pastoral counseling while on staff at a large westside Cleveland church. Karen possesses an MA in counseling from Westminster Theological Seminary and has furthered her training with additional courses from The Global Trauma Recovery Institute. Additionally, Karen serves as a Recitation Instructor for CCEF in their School of Biblical Counseling.
Karen and husband Steve have been married for 32 years, are parents to Katie and, as empty-nesters, spend their free time enjoying cooking, traveling, hiking and any other outdoor activity.
