Karen goren, LCSW
As a Certified Gestalt Psychotherapist, I believe in the power of relationships and am passionate about engaging people in a collaborative, creative process of healing. I am trained to listen for a client’s internal sense of knowing, believing that a person naturally wants to grow and heal in ways that we will discover together.
I earned a Masters degree in Social Work from Widener University in 2007 and have over a decade of wide ranging experience working with individuals, couples, families and groups. My background includes career counseling, community outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment.
While working at Mirmont Treatment Center in Lima, Pa., I provided counseling in detox and inpatient hospitalization units for individuals struggling with substance abuse and other underlying concerns. Additionally, I led mindfulness meditation, family and spirituality workshops.
Other certifications include Systems Family Therapy and Child Sexual Abuse Treatment. Areas of Specialization include Substance Abuse, Trauma, Spirituality, Sexual Abuse, Depression, Anxiety, Grief, and Adoption.
