Karen Klein, LCSW-C
The pressures of living in our fast-paced culture leave many of us feeling down, anxious, disconnected and lonely. We often try to alleviate our problems or change how we feel in ways that only provide momentary satisfaction — and sometimes in ways that can even exacerbate the problem. Rather than paying close attention to ourselves and taking the time to understand what we really need, we often become complacent or start to feel helpless in our lives.
Psychotherapy can be a very effective way to work through conflicts and disturbing thoughts and feelings. You can develop a freedom to really express yourself without the concern of being judged. It provides the opportunity to explore what you truly want and need in your life, find relief and healing, and learn how to create more love and intimacy in your relationships. You can also gain a greater understanding of family dynamics, learn healthier styles of communication and break patterns that may no longer serving you. Through the therapy process, you can begin to feel more alive, more present and able to develop a deep, connected and fulfilling relationship with yourself and the people in your life.
I have been in practice in Maryland for more than 20 years.
Over time, I find myself becoming more and more passionate about what I do. I am a warm, engaging and open person, and I gain tremendous satisfaction from developing strong therapeutic relationships and supporting people along their journeys in life.
As we begin, I will work toward building a relationship with you that feels safe and trusting. I will offer new, meaningful insights to help you get to the root of your current life conflicts. Our work together can help you better understand yourself and your experiences and discover more of what you want to bring into your life. I invite you to contact me for an initial phone consultation. I’m happy to answer any questions you have about the therapy process and my practice.
