Professional statement

Karen Levine is a Licensed Professional Counselor based in Denver, Colorado. She focuses her private practice on working with early to mid-career professionals and young adults. Many of Karen’s clients come in with struggles adjusting to transitions in their lives, navigating work struggles, or problems with relationships. Karen is particularly passionate about helping women and working parents navigate the challenges of life stress. She also has advanced training in mental health first aid and healthcare compliance.

Karen is trained in several therapeutic approaches which have a basis in cognitive behavioral therapy. These approaches use emotions and thoughts to help identify specific behavior changes. In sessions, Karen focuses on listening carefully to help create a safe space, offers observations and feedback to help gain insight and teaches skills to help alleviate distress. This approach supports clients to feel more confident, find hope in the future, and increase courage to reach for their dream life.

Karen’s style is nurturing, supportive, and thoughtful. When a client first comes in the focus is on creating a safe and inviting environment to begin the work together. Karen is dedicated to providing a relationship that is honest and caring. And she is not afraid to offer a gentle nudge when needed.

Karen received her Master of Arts degree in Professional Counseling from Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri. She gained experience in counseling at Aurora Mental Health Center in Aurora, Colorado which enables her to understand very difficult and complex problems. Outside of her private practice, she loves exploring new places, trying out new fashion trends, grabbing coffee with friends, and sharing time with her family.


Message to clients

It takes courage to start therapy and taking that first step can be the hardest. My goal is to make it as easy as possible to start the process. Once our sessions begin, I offer my expertise in navigating difficult life changes, coping with the stress of daily life, and overcoming obstacles, whatever they may be. I listen and help you explore your ideas while we discover your unique strengths along the way. I view you as the expert of your own life, but act as a guide to help you reflect on where you want to go and how you can get there. Once your counseling goals are clear, I help hold you accountable to meeting those goals and creating the life you want to live.
