Karen H. Whitehead, MS, LMSW, DCC

In today’s world of social media, it may seem that everyone has it all together. In truth, most people feel confused, overwhelmed, or lost at one time or another. It can be hard to reach out for help and connect with someone about the personal and intimate challenges of your life. My approach to therapy focuses on listening, developing trust, and creating a safe and non-judgmental space. Together, we will address your concerns and generate solutions that work for you, while honoring the beliefs, values, and experiences you bring to the therapeutic relationship.

I welcome clients ages 16 though adulthood. I have experience with a variety of issues including but not limited to: anxiety, depression, parenting, adoptee-birthparent relationships, trauma, chronic illness, grief/loss, family concerns, and life transitions with a special interest in individuals and families affected by cancer or other illnesses.

I am certified to provide distance counseling and to teach Mindfulness to individuals and groups. I also provide counseling services for TurningPoint Breast Care Rehabilitation in Roswell. My past experiences include teaching, school communications and fundraising, and hospice. I would be honored to discuss your needs and work together to create a personalized plan to address your areas of concern.

No feeling is final.
