Karen is a Registered Nurse, Licensed Acupuncturist and Certified EFT Practitioner. Karen obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Maryland 28 years ago. She obtained a Masters of Acupuncture from Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly TAI Sophia) in 2003 and became a Certified EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Practitioner in 2020. Karen loves blending Western and Eastern medical thought as a way to help clients move towards greater health, vitality and freedom. Understanding the body from a trauma informed, psychophysiological (mind-body) lens bridges the gap between setting a goal and seeing it to fruition. EFT is instrumental in Karen’s life both personally and professionally. Her goal is for clients to be their best selves and to unleash their power to obtain what they desire.
In her free time, Karen enjoys hiking, kayaking and traveling with her husband and friends. She loves being in nature, gardening, will always be a life-long learner and is an active member of her church.
