As a therapist for over 30 years Karen watched people go through many different situations and noticed communication is the key issue, regardless of the type of relationship.
In 2006 Karen created Center for Individual and Group Counseling, CIGC, to share her expertise in counseling individuals, couples and families of all ages, as well as her experience being one of the leading chronic pain specialists.
As a therapist, Karen witnessed not only the financial and emotional stress imposed on families going through divorce but also the pain inflicted on the kids involved. Wanting to minimize the difficulty of this transition, Karen’s passion to help led her to create Center for Rational Solutions, CRS, in 2011 to provide a better alternative for conflict resolution than ugly court battles. Just like with chronic pain, the pain experienced during divorce affects the whole family.
In order to maximize these services, the former CIGC and CRS were combined to create Center for Counseling and Rational Solutions, CRS, which provides people with alternatives to contentious and painful situations in all aspects of life. For those going through the process of uncoupling, there are other options to ugly court battles: divorce mediation, elder mediation, parent coordination, collaborative, or pro se divorce (without attorneys). We are committed to helping people maximize control over their family’s outcome by staying out of the court system. For those experiencing difficulty in other areas of life’s challenges and transitions, whether they be physical or emotional pain, we offer a highly specialized network of professionals and resources. We found that by combining CIGC and CRS, we can give people one place to come to help them with any of life’s challenges and transitions from childhood through old age.
