Karen Hemsteger M.S., L.L.P.

Greetings!
I am excited to be moving into a new place in my career. I was first introduced to Hands On about 18 years ago when my daughter started working for Karen as a receptionist at the practice. Isn’t it fun to see where life takes us? I worked many years in the public mental health sector and have always tried to balance my life with meditation, spiritual practice and exercise. Having decided to leave my long time career, I’m very excited to delve further into my life long practices.
Now at Hands On, I offer Reiki sessions, meditation groups, groups on exploring spirituality and counseling. I find that to balance our busy lives we need to find our calm core, our connection to spirit, be mindful and have fun! It is so important to find that balance, and with practice, be able to be mindful even in the midst of chaos.
I was so fortunate to have wonderful mentors in the field of alternative arts, and now look forward to sharing with others at this wonderful wellness center. I have been a Reiki Master for 16 years, and have studied and taught many forms of spiritual practice. My therapeutic training includes cognitive behavioral therapy, diagnostics, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, guided meditation, and hypnosis. I feel it is important to assist people in identifying their strengths and learn and practice skills to cope and to prosper in mind, body and spirit. I look forward to meeting you for groups, Reiki sessions, or counseling as we work together toward good health and joyful lives!
