“Counseling can be a scary next step for anyone, and it is my goal to create a safe and warm environment for you to express what you need, and be yourself freely. Problems that surface in our lives are many times symptoms of the hurt that we have faced, and I would love to relieve the loneliness in that hurt by walking through this healing journey with you.”


Karen Crow is a Licensed Professional Counselor- Intern supervised by Patty Doumany, MEd, LPC-S, RPT-S. She completed her Master’s of Arts in Professional Counseling in 2016 at Liberty University, and her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing in 2011 at Mary Hardin Baylor. Her therapeutic approach is eclectic and humanistic in nature and has roots in Gestalt therapy. She develops trust and safety through relationship with her clients, uses creative resources for artistic expression, and focuses on holistic treatment through addressing concerns of the mind, body, and spirit.

Karen has a history of partnering with trauma survivors in the counseling setting, and is a trauma survivor herself. She has worked with a range of people from children, teens, and adults, to child soldiers in Africa, domestic violence survivors, and sufferers of anxiety and depression. She partners with clients to lift undesired behaviors rooted in the past, enable living in the here and now, and unlock free emotional expression. Because children express themselves through play, Karen utilizes non-directive play therapy in her approach with children and plans to continue that training in pursuing her Registered Play Therapist License. Her areas of specialty include:

  • Physical and emotional abuse
  • Attachment
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Child behavior concerns
  • Cross-cultural counseling
  • Divorce
  • Depression
  • Disconnection/dissociation
  • Family conflict
  • Intimacy issues
