Located in south Kitchener in a private residence within walking distance of the #10 Conestoga College bus route; street parking is also available.

Clients requiring day-time availability are also welcome to book with me through Bliss Counselling in uptown Waterloo. I’m there four days a week and one Saturday a month. Please be aware that Bliss has a different billing and fee structure than I do; I cannot apply my rates to clients meeting me there.

If for some reason it seems like I might not be the best fit for you and the work you’re interested in doing, or if for some reason we can’t find scheduling that works for both of us, please consider contacting one of my colleagues in my referral network. This is an informal, loose collective of therapists with similar values, covering different niches and specializations. I receive no financial kickback for any clients I refer to them, I just think they’re wonderful therapists who might work for you if I’m not the right fit:

    Hi Karen, I would love to have you help me work with my parents to understand more about my polyamorous nature.

    My wife wants to support the poly but has had incredible trauma and health issues.

    My main goal at this point would be to have you help me show my parents who I am.
