About Karen Wall

HELLO! I'm Dr. Karen Wall, EdD, MA, LMFT, RN-BC, OFS

I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with an extensive background as a Psychiatric and Geriatric Registered Nurse. My education & training includes an AA in Pre-Med, a BS in Biology, BS in Nursing, PD/MA in Education, and a MA and EdD in Counseling Psychology/Marriage and Family Therapy. I'm committed to helping YOU learn how to develop new ways of dealing with stress, burnout, illness, and relationships with yourself and others. My work focuses on exploring strengths and loveable qualities that can be called upon to help you be more unconditionally loving toward yourself and others. I believe in hearing your story, in your words, and having a collaborative relationship to find the answers you need for lasting wellness and recovery. I possess knowledge and skills from the medical world that have allowed me to be a source of added education information. I am also a Veteran, highly experienced with the unique behavioral health needs of Veterans of all eras (PTSD, Moral Injury, etc). Geriatric and dementia care, including Caregiver support, are additional specialties and passions of mine. I also have an active faith life as a Professed Secular Franciscan, and look forward to sharing with those who are interested.

There are times when you will feel as if there is no way out of whatever it is you're dealing with, or that no one can relate to your experience and therefore have nothing to offer you. One of the greatest gifts I can give you is a genuine, unbiased interest in who you have been in life and, even more, a shared experience (or willingness to learn about yours) and ability to talk to you in ways you can connect with and feel understood. That's who I am. I'm so excited to share what I know and do with you and hope to be able to endance your life skills and self-esteem.
