With over thirty years of experience as a marriage and individual therapist Karen currently serves as a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of individual and corporate clients.

Natalie House


Natalie House has spent over twenty years in marketing at high-tech companies. Natalie was referred to Karen when she was going through her divorce and she likes to say that when she met Karen she couldn’t find her way out of a paper bag. Karen gave her the tools to know herself, love herself, transform herself and transform her relationships with friends, family, colleagues and her partner.

What Natalie loves about Karen’s methodology is that Karen has made mindfulness easier and more approachable. It’s practical, pragmatic, honest and focused on what can be done in the here and now that will change your life in the long run.

Natalie’s goal is to use her marketing experience to make Karen’s concepts accessible to as many people as possible. Natalie is living proof that if you do the work, you will change your life.

Natalie holds a Master of Business Administration and a bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Phoenix.
