Karen Booth, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

I am passionate about helping others learn to love and believe in themselves and help shift the patterns of behavior that are no longer serving them. My goal is to help clients learn to have a better relationship with themselves, their bodies and others in their life, in hopes of enriching their overall life experience.

I feel inspired by working with clients who are ready to make a change with behaviors that are no longer serving them, assisting people in finding a healthier relationship with food and their body, supporting more effective communication between family members/loved ones and providing helpful coping tools to better manage difficult emotions. I believe we are all worthy of love, overcoming our past traumas and that everyday is a new opportunity for growth and change. I pride myself on being authentic, non-judgmental and friendly in sessions. I want my clients to feel as comfortable as possible as we explore and discuss difficult topics.

I have worked in all levels of care residential, PHP/IOP and out-patient with eating disorders, addiction and mental health issues. I primarily work with adolescents, young adults and families. I tend to work from a client-centered, psychodynamic perspective incorporating DBT, CBT and TRM modalities. I'm in the process of getting TRM (Trauma Resiliency Model, somatic work) certified and am very excited to be offering this service to my clients to help unlock stuck traumas, memories or experiences that are not accessible via talk therapy. I aspire to be a refreshing conduit of support and growth, while assisting clients to find new ways to regulate their nervous system, emotional reactions and building new ways to cope.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): A form of talk therapy that trains clients to recognize
patterns of unproductive thinking and learn healthier responses to challenging situations.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): A subset of CBT that emphasizes a skills-based approach to personal development and tools for controlling one’s emotional responses to stimulus.

Intuitive Eating: Is a clinical orientation towards the treatment of eating disorders with the
approach that each client is a respective expert on the needs of their own body. Clients work with their therapists to understand the rhythm and intuition of their own body.

Trauma Resiliency Model: In this treatment module, trauma is approached in a somatic fashion based on its lasting legacy within the human body. Clients are directed to build resiliency towards the lasting effects of trauma in the body, interpersonally and psycho-socially.
