Karen Gwaltney, MS, MA, Marriage & Family Therapist in Pasadena
Are you feeling disempowered in certain relationships? Did something happen that has shaken you and kept you distracted? Perhaps you regarded therapy as a last resort--a last resort you never thought you'd turn to. Therapy should offer a space to gain clarity about your life without fear of judgment. The comfort you have with your therapist is of vital importance for the process. To give you a chance to see if you're comfortable with me, your first session is free of charge.
While the process of talking about "you" can seem self-indulgent, therapy--with the right therapist--can liberate you to love the people in your life even more. I help you discover truths about yourself that increase your capacity to make well-informed decisions in your relationships with others.
For couples and families, I am certified in Restoration Therapy as well as Prepare/Enrich. If you don't receive a response from me, please ensure your contact information was entered correctly. I do my best to respond to contacts within 24 hours.
