About Karen Crowe, MA

From a clinical graduate degree program to play therapy with children who were abused and neglected to crisis intervention counseling to working with teenagers to developing programming for young children to finally (the most rewarding) raising my own three kids, my passion for understanding how to help children grow and thrive in an ever-changing world continues to grow. Pursuing knowledge and expertise in the world of human development since 1995 has given me incredible life experiences.I have been asked to share the knowledge and insight I have gained from these experiences on this platform. I hope it inspires, informs and comforts those who read it.
