As a psychologist Karen has worked in private practice, in organizational settings, and lectured extensively in the facilitation of personal growth groups. She is a mother, Huffington Post blogger and founder of www.heysigmund.com, the website she founded to bring the science of psychology to the art of being human. Her Honours degree in Psychology and Masters in Gestalt Therapy have come in handy at times.
Experience has taught her that psychology has something for everyone, jargon doesn’t, everyone has a story to tell, short bios are the longest to write, nobody has it all figured out and the best people to be around are the ones who already know this. She can be found here on Facebook, here on Pinterest and here on Twitter.
