Karen S Van Acker, MA, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Salem
Counseling and therapy for motivated, high functioning men and women, ready to make change. If you want to take steps to improve your life, but feel held back by trauma, I can help. My clients are often high profile, intellectual, energetic and artistic, but dealing with difficult and complex issues that they want to resolve. I specialize in transgender issues as well.
My mission is to help my clients stop scrambling and numbing out so that they start waking up excited and ready to fulfill the purpose they were born for. I've long been a follower of C.G. Jung and believe we are all connected.
I use multiple methods to support changes necessary to reach personal goals.
