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.

Philosophy and Comments
When you recognize you want to change, a good relationship with a psychotherapist can be your powerful ally. Part of my work is about insight--assisting you to clarify what you want and to understand the roots of the beliefs and behaviors that you seek to change. The other part is about developing new actions, attitudes, and responses that help you reach your goals.
Work Hours and Fee Schedule
I offer morning, afternoon, and early evening hours Monday through Friday. My fee is $130 with some sliding fee options.
