Hi, my name is Karen. Welcome to my site!
So, a little bit about me. I’m a wife, and a mom to 3 kids and 3 dogs. I’m trained as a mental health counselor and a play therapist. I’ve been working in the mental health field for about 15 years. I love to create, travel, and learn. I am also an entrepreneur, and I love to start and build new ventures. On personality quizzes, I tend to show up as an introvert most of the time, but I really love a sense of community and group when it flows well.
What is my story?
I am passionate about life, have strong feelings, and care deeply about people. I love nature, healthy living, animals, adventure and action and, if I’m honest, I struggle with stillness. From an early age, I have always had an interest in understanding people and behavior and figuring out problems and offering solutions. Perhaps this is because my own path has not always been an easy one, facing struggles with anxiety, family issues, health issues, career, and always questions about my purpose in the universe. But I’m blessed with an indomitable spirit (I never give up!), a deep personal faith, people in my corner, and a sense of humor and playfulness that has kept me going.
My purpose for writing this blog is to connect with people, share my struggles, my insights, my knowledge, some science, and my experiences that hopefully can be helpful for others. As human beings, we all function within story. I have always enjoyed hearing people’s stories! I will do my best to provide you with current and accurate information. Feel free to leave any comments or questions, as I welcome feedback. I only ask that you be kind. Treat others as you would like to be treated. I’m so glad you are here!
