Karen is passionate about trauma! She feels that she can help people find the method to their madness – within the trauma – and some kind of a resolution. Dr. Vertti uses cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy (TFCBT), insight-oriented therapy, and motivational therapy (MT). She also specializes in providing sex offender therapy.

My clinician was quite a surprise. Though she was very professional, she genuinely was interested in me and made me feel like I was the only person that matters. That’s a first for me. She is extremely intelligent, and I know I am getting the best treatment for my needs.
