Karen M. Umminger, LCSW, CHT
I am an interpersonal psychodynamic therapist who uses various approaches to assist clients in reaching their goals. I specialize in improving relaionships, family of origin work, trauma issues, depression and anxiety, grief and loss issues, life transitions, gay/lesbian issues and career/workplace concerns, self-esteem and recovery. I am certified in the Hakomi method of body centered psychotherapy and give attention to your whole person--body, mind, spirit, emotion. I often work in the "here and now" and take an interactive role in helping you to problem-solve. I encourage clients to experiment with new behaviors and attitudes and sometimes offer homework between sessions. I work with individuals and couples and create a safe, confidential environment where your concerns are heard and addressed.
