Karel Chan, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

**Practice currently FULL and not accepting new clients** Love is powerful. Heartbreak in loss of love is equally powerful, and a unique yet universal experience of pain, anger, sadness, and grief. I help people heal from broken hearts and regain independence and a sense of self.

My Approach

I work exclusively with individuals to feel more empowered in relationships - I do not provide couples therapy. Using warmth, humor, and compassion, I guide you in empowering your sense of self and gaining confidence to have healthy relationships with significant others, family, and community. I help you wade through the sadness and grief of heartbreak and explore avenues for growth, independence, and healing. Together, we'll navigate the complexity of dating and relationship development, understand your dating habits and motivations, and practice clear and effective communication skills. I also offer seminars and workshops for online dating.

My Background

I have a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Portland State University and a Bachelors in English and Creative Writing from Haverford College in Haverford, PA. My pursuit of these fields stemmed from a longstanding passion for people's stories, relationships, and understanding what truly moves us. A common thread through all of my work in helping others has been love and relationships; meanwhile, I've had my own love and heartbreak healing journeys. The energy and vitality from my exploration of self and others drives me to help you do the same: find, refine, and trust your self-evaluation, identity, and secure place in your world. Once you decide to begin, wherever you are in your unique path, I will meet you there and hold your heart tenderly every step of the way.
