About Karen Mehringer

If you’ve ever had your heart broken, you know what it is like to experience disappointment and loss. Perhaps a loved one died or a relationship ended. It can be debilitating. You may feel depressed, drained or unmotivated to engage fully in your life.

It is normal to withdraw our energy and to isolate while we go through the initial grieving process. But, oftentimes we become stuck in this pattern of self-preservation which only cuts off our vital energy and intensifies our feelings of dissatisfaction. Further, we hold back from living up to our fullest potential.

As the founder of Creative Transformations, an author, speaker, psychotherapist and grief counselor with over fifteen years of experience in the personal development field including a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy, here is what I can help you with:

• Healing your painful feelings like anger, regret, guilt, resentment and sadness
• Transforming your limiting thought patterns and beliefs that keep you stuck
• Creating purpose and meaning from your loss
• Re-inventing how you see yourself and the world
• Restoring your inspiration, passion and vitality for life
• Overcoming your fears and obstacles that keep you from living the life of your dreams

I offer a FREE 30-minute no obligation phone consultation to help us determine if my services are a good fit for you. Call 831-359-2441 or e-mail CreativeTransformations@yahoo.com to schedule your appointment. I also offer a FREE report on How to Heal Your Grief and Move on with Your Life, inspiring articles and a blog. I look forward to connecting with you and helping you to realize your dreams!
