      My daughter worked with Karen as she dealt with chronic pain issues. She found a way to fight back and to take the driver's seat again. She is in charge of her life and the pain has to ride in the back seat. Pain continues, but attitude and coping skills where re-worked with Karen. She is caring and an awesome advocate! Thank you, Karen.
