About Karen Phillips, LCSW

After getting a B.S. in Foods and Nutrition and then deciding on a Masters Degree, Karen realized that what she was really passionate about was helping others through mental health and wellbeing services.

Karen holds a B.S. from the University of Arkansas and an MSW from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is trained in Trauma-Focused cognitive behavioral therapy, is currently taking training to work with youth who have intellectual or developmental disabilities.
