Karen O’Malley, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

My approach to a successful therapeutic relationship between client and myself is built on trust, honesty, and willingness to be open to change. I will meet you where you are at, so no matter what is happening in your life – you can begin to continue in your life’s journey. My calm nature and gentleness have been a source of empathy and comfort for many. I aid my clients in building new coping skills and tapping into their inner strength. Together we will create goals and a plan fitting your needs and desire for healing and lasting improvement in your everyday life.
