Karen is a trained Family Therapist and Mental Health Nurse with advanced specialist training in child and youth mental health.
Karen has worked in many different settings including public hospitals, out-patient departments and community mental health. Karen’s particular areas of interest are Autism, Aspergers Syndrome, Eating Disorders and problematic behaviours. Karen uses a family-based approach in working with young people as she believes that children exist within a family system. As such it is important to include the family system in treatment. Karen sees each family as unique and understands that there is no such thing as a ‘normal’ family. Client confidentiality is of the upmost importance and Karen sees it as a privilege to be invited into each family that she works with.
