Karen Gray, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Karen is a licensed professional counselor and holds a certification as an advanced alcohol and drug counselor. She received her master’s in mental health counseling from Lancaster Bible College’s Graduate School, and she has experience in outpatient substance-use groups and individual counseling for dual-diagnosis clients. Karen’s passion is helping clients become more intentional in improving their overall quality of life by assisting them in addressing areas of possible concern. She works with individuals to help them recognize and address their inner critic and perfectionistic thinking, as well as recognize and process their emotions. Karen also assists clients in understanding and establishing boundaries, including addressing codependency concerns. She is especially passionate about helping individuals recognize patterns of behavior that are no longer effective so they can transition to new coping skills. Karen also enjoys working with clients who are struggling with depression and anxiety. In her sessions, she uses both behavioral and insight-oriented techniques, and she places an emphasis on collaboration in the therapeutic process, as well as respect for clients’ unique life experiences.
