Meet Your Therapist
As a former athlete who has endured many serious injuries, I understand firsthand how difficult it is to struggle with chronic pain. As the Phoenix rises from its ashes and transforms, I am here to guide you through your own transformation by facilitating your body’s inner wisdom for self-healing and recovery. I will connect with you through gentle touch or by distance, following the path of your body’s physical signals to support your process.
Since 1996 I have served the DMV area, helping many people dealing with serious health challenges to recover and thrive. I recognize the holistic and complex nature of healing and gently hold a grounded steady therapeutic presence for you. I welcome all peoples to my clinic with kindness, acceptance, and compassion. My hope is that your experience will bring you closer to wholeness.

Your Treatment Experience
What Patients Say
"Working with Karen is an absolute delight. I have been seeing her for craniosacral sessions on and off for around five years, and each time I see her I end up having important physical and emotional shifts.
Most recently, Karen supported me through the recovery of buried traumatic
memories, helping me to stay present in my body without being overwhelmed by the feelings and sensations.
Karen’s ability to sit with pain (physical, mental, emotional, etc.) and help her clients heal themselves is so special. I cannot recommend her enough."
