“Through coaching with Karen  I have more clarity about my values that drive my choices.  I am also more aware of my behaviors and realize that I do have choices and am now making choices that fit with my values.”

Testimonial by Will Fassett Program Director of Adventure Risk Challenge

Coaching with Karen has allowed me to confront head on the everyday stressors that, in the past I had circled around or not addressed.  I have greatly improved my work life balance and feel more energized and ready to confront the challenges of the day.


Testimonial by Jane Flavin Executive Director of Live Violence Free

My biggest take away, truly, was the awareness piece and giving myself permission to NOT try and accomplish everything I felt I needed to do right this minute. Giving myself permission to hold back on working as much helped me to recognize what my true values are. Karen’s guidance has fostered a new way to live my life.
