“After graduating college, I found myself struggling with where I was going with my life. Since this change was coupled with the dissolving of a long-term relationship, I was left with no motivation to improve my state and was progressively moving into a depression. When I met Karen all of that changed. Karen’s coaching in positive psychology allowed me to see my situation in a new light. It was so easy to talk to her that it didn’t feel like coaching, but more like a conversation with a very close friend. Karen is someone I can truly confide in and trust, which is rare to come by now a days and I am very grateful for her guidance and support. After receiving psychology coaching, I was not only able to see how what I was going through was natural, but I was able to turn it into a positive and productive experience. Now I have successfully applied to a competitive graduate program and am looking forward to what lies ahead.” – D’Ana M.
