Meet Kaaren

Licensed Professional Counselor

Registered Art Therapist, Certified Brainspotting

Internal Family Systems Informed Therapist

I am a person-centered therapist grounded in the 'Unconditional Positive Regard' of Carl Rogers ~  providing support and intervention without judgement. 

We are not defined by our past or our current behaviors, nor are we destined to relive destructive or unhelpful patterns. 


All people contain remarkable capacity for growth. 

My approach is integrative ~ we are a unified mind/body/spirit that is profoundly influenced by our relationships and environment. 


We possess innate ability to heal. 


When not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, time in nature, and expanding my learning. My husband and I are passionate land stewards and have recently returned 30 acres of farmland to native prairie and pollinator habitat. 

Please reach out, I would be happy to help.
