About My Clients

Do you feel overwhelmed? Are you looking for a safe space to talk about your challenges on your journey? Let me be a guide for you. I understand the unique challenges that OCD presents to your life. I am also experienced with working with people with Anxiety, Depression and Trauma. We can work together to make goals and learn skills to get you back on track.

My Background and Approach

I have been working 12 years in the Mental Health Field working at Family Agencies. I have experience working with people with OCD, Depression, Anxiety, and Trauma. I use evidence based practices for therapy including CBT, TF-CBT, DBT, Solution-Focus Therapy, EMDR and Mindfulness. My approach is warm, accepting, inclusive and practical . Additionally, I place a high value on careful listening, empathy, professional ethics and accountability. I also use Self Compassion as a basis for my therapy work. I have attended many trainings using Acceptance Commitment Therapy and feel it is effective along with ERP in giving clients with OCD tools to manage their exhausting intrusive thoughts. When I am not at my office I am looking for a good hiking trail or hanging out with my 6 boys and husband. I like to paint, make jewelry and think about the next travelling destination I can go on once things get back to normal.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Hello there. My name is Karmen and I am the owner and a therapist at Magnolia Tree Counseling. I also write a blog about mental heath issues under the name "The Compassionate Therapist." I find that when we add some self compassion into therapy and are kind to ourselves through life's challenges, there can be a sense of peace and healing. I use a strength based approach and I believe that each person I work with has the ability within themselves to heal, grown and find purpose by looking what they value most. I am a genuine listener and I will walk along your journey with you. I am a genuine listener. I will give suggestions, use my specific training to point out how to use coping skills to assist you in overcoming your challenges. Together we can work through your pain towards healing and acceptance. I offer a free 15 minute consultation, which you and I can decide if we are a good fit. Give me a call and let's chat!
