Professional statement

Karen Bisignano is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Savannah, GA. Karen takes a multi-modality approach to helping clients who struggle to get through daily life. Often, Karen’s clients suffer from anxiety, depression, or another mood disorder. These mental health conditions make it difficult to feel motivated at work, to connect with others, and to find fulfillment with everyday routines. Karen is passionate about working with single mothers, those with chronic illnesses, and the LGBT community.

Karen provides clients with the tools they need to grow their self-awareness and to practice effective self-care. By using a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) approach as well as Existential Psychotherapy, Karen teaches clients how to identify negative thought patterns, including cognitive distortions. These cognitive distortions may interfere with a positive mood or healthy behaviors. Karen also encourages clients to set goals for their mental health and focuses each session towards reaching those goals.

Karen earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from Fordham University. She creates a compassionate atmosphere in session that does not place any pressure on the client yet gives them the empowerment they need to take control of their lives.


Message to clients

I come to practice as clinical therapist through many life experiences which were, at times anxiety provoking, heart wrenching, and overwhelming. By reaching out for my own personal therapy I was I able to learn many wonderful tools that have helped me navigate all of my life struggles. As I therapist, I want to help you learn how to navigate life's challenges and to learn to live your best life. I commend you for taking the first step toward therapy, The best therapist, is someone you can relate to, feel comfortable with and whom you will trust. Once we start working together, you will learn I am there for you and ready to help learn how to work through your struggles too. I look forward to hearing from you.
