Hello, I am Karen A Finn, LMHC, LCDP, QMHP. Thank you for viewing my bio at Sheehan Psychotherapy Associates. I am a Licensed Mental Health Therapist who has training in Couples Counseling, Anger Management, Anxiety, Depression, Substance Abuse, Bi-Polar and other Mood Disorders. I use techniques like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Anger Management Therapy, Trauma Intervention, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, to name a few. I am a Humanistic Counselor who is inclined toward the teachings of Carl Rogers, the Godfather of Therapy, who believed that a counselor should treat all clients with unconditional positive regard and help each client discover that the answers to their problems are within them. I endorse Positive Psychology that states that all clients have the answers to their problems within them and that a counselor’s job is to help them unpack these answers and also positively endorse and edify the client.
My focus is to provide a safe, peaceful, and positive environment where my client feels calm, safe, in a trusting therapeutic relationship, and then can explore their life’s issues as we together work on the answers.
“What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Let me help you to explore your inner world of the mind and emotions and help you to meet life’s challenges as you discover how strong you really are.
