“Karyn is my go to resource in the local community. She is the first counselor that I refer my students to because I know that she instantly puts them at ease and creates a sense of comfort. Karyn works well with people of all ages, but I have personally referred students with heightened anxiety and/or students that need an open ear, a helpful listener, and or a solution focused individual. When you meet Karyn you will see that her calming nature, her intelligent demeanor, her high regard for confidentiality an professionalism can be scene within the first 5 minutes of your interactions. Additionally, as a school counselor Karyn is my go to resource whenever we need a professional from the community to share resources, talk with large groups on varying issues (especially loss and grief), work with smaller groups, or individuals. I feel really lucky both personally and professionally to have connected with Karyn. She is an amazing person and valuable resource to our community.”
