Karen is a grief counselor and Reiki Master Teacher. She brings her experience and education to the bereaved as they experience their grief journey.  As a spiritual care and bereavement counselor with hospice, Karen has worked with many patients and families experiencing changes, transitions, death and grief. As a support group leader in community settings, she has worked with many bereaved individuals experiencing various losses. She considers it a privilege to be present to the dying and bereaved as their share their journey.

Having experienced many deaths, losses and much grief in her own life, Karen knows the need for and value of grief support. Once her children were all in school full time, Karen worked to receive her Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling in order to become a grief counselor. As she began her career as a hospice bereavement counselor, she also earned a certificate in thanatology and degrees in Reiki.  She believes that she can best serve her clients by continuing to learn and broaden her knowledge. Currently, she is studying for her next certificate.

Karen has  been involved in animal rescue for more than 20 years, as a foster mom to rescued dogs and cats. She and her family share their lives with many beloved pets of their own.  She believes very strongly that those grieving the loss of their pet need to be supported in their grief and she welcomes those grieving the loss of their beloved pets to her practice, Grief & Healing Connections.

Karen would like to emphasize that grief support is available at Grief & Healing Connections for all grief and loss. She believes that we experience grief when we experience a loss, a change, a transition, an unrealized hope. Too often, people feel isolated in their grief when they cannot share their story, when their loss is not recognized or supported by others. Many bereaved individuals begin to feel some relief by sharing their story and learning more about the grief process.
