Karen Gwaltney, MS, MA, Marriage & Family Therapist in Pasadena
Are you experiencing pain in your relationships? Overwhelmed by family tension? Do you simply need to process an upsetting event? Therapy provides a space to find clarity about your circumstances without fear of judgment. The comfort you have with your therapist is of vital importance for the process. When you invest with the right therapist, you'll not only discover how to connect in more satisfying ways with the people around you, you'll gain a greater sense of agency overall.
I'll help you identify truths about yourself that lay the foundation for the kind of life you desire. The clearer you are on who you are and what you want, the less anxiety you'll experience on your journey. I enjoy working with individuals facing decisions and life transitions.
I also work with couples of all stages, and 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.
