Psychotherapy for Individuals

You are wondering if it can get better.

It can.

Life and relationships can be hard.

We know.

Maybe you’ve never tried therapy. Maybe you did and it didn’t go so well.

Simply put, we believe therapy should be therapeutic.

Insight is not enough.

We use science, skills, and relationship to give you what you need to unlock your transformation.

Hi, I’m Karen!

I founded Avalon Psychotherapy Associates in 2015 in the belief that real transformation is possible.

Today we have science, theory, and practice that extend beyond insight-based talk therapy.

If we ask, “what’s wrong with you?” we’ve asked the wrong question.

Instead we ask, “what happened to you? How did you adapt? How is that adaptation no longer serving you?”

We can leverage how the brain works to unlock healing and create real change.

Our core values are social justice, excelptional clinical care, compassion, and lifelong learning.
