Kathleen Karigan, PhD, LPC

FullSizeRender (5)We all know that pain and suffering are a part of the journey of life, and that it is often in the relationships with those we love most that the deepest pain and suffering occurs. Through my own life’s journey, I have grown spiritually and been strengthened through the counseling process. I have deep compassion for adolescents, couples, and families that are in conflict, discord, and distress. I understand the pain and accept without judgment the shame people experience when relationships go awry. I also enjoy working with women experiencing times of transition, and those struggling with relational, or spiritual issues.

My love for this work is rooted in my own life’s journey of working with families. I have spent more than 30 years in education as a teacher, learning specialist, educational consultant, and counselor, and have worked in a variety of settings. The past twenty years of my career have been spent helping families understand their child who might be struggling academically, behaviorally, or emotionally and helping parents and families reduce conflict.
While Kathy takes great joy in her work, her greatest thrill is sharing life with her husband Steve. Steve and Kathy have three adult children – Megan, Brad, and Mallory, and one grandson, Jameson, who keeps them very busy! They also enjoy their five-pound Yorkie, Jack Bauer.
