Meet Your Counselor
Hi, my name is Karen Allen and I am a Christian and a licensed mental health counselor. As a Christian, I understand the importance of faith and personal beliefs in the healing process. Counseling is not my job but my calling and I am but a vessel through whom God works to heal lives. My formal education provided me with techniques, theories, and counseling skills but my informal education – the lessons of life – have taught me insight and to have compassion for others. I am a graduate of the University of Florida and Capella University, and I have invested in other specialized trainings to benefit my clients.
On a personal note, I am married, have two adult children who are both married, one grandchild, and one cat. My leisure time is spent giving back to the community through my church, fishing, camping, and solving puzzles.
