Karen is currently working to complete her Master’s degree in Counselling with Monash University and is providing counselling services under the supervision of Dr Scarlett Mattoli.
With a background in financial and professional services, Karen has spent over 20 years collaborating with leaders and stakeholders on business strategies to deliver impactful performance. A people-first leader herself, she has recently turned her focus to helping build individual and organizational resilience and well-being.
As a certified coach, Karen works with clients to shape their careers, develop meaningful relationships and realize their potential. Her interest in mental health and helping people in a more holistic way led her to pursue higher education in counselling and psychotherapy.
Karen’s goal as counsellor is to support and guide clients as they navigate challenging times and make meaningful changes in their lives, and promote optimal mental health and wellbeing. She takes a client-centered, strength-based approach and is committed to providing a non-judgemental and trusting space. She appreciates individual specific needs and works in a collaborative and flexible way.
Karen is available for in-person and online counselling in English and Mandarin.
