Helping Teen Boys, Adult Men, and Their Loved Ones
Karen Arthur, MA, LPCA
Karen Arthur is a licensed therapist who works with teens and adults who feel stuck and who may be struggling with anxiety, grief and loss, and chronic health condition management, as well as other issues. Karen helps clients develop strong coping skills for life’s problems. She welcomes individuals of any religious background (and those who are non-religious), sexual orientation, and gender identity. I believe strongly that our natural tendency as humans is toward healing and I will encourage you to lead us, whenever possible. I use a mix of CBT, mindfulness counseling, reality therapy, and expressive arts therapy (there is no experience or skill necessary).
