"Hi Karen, Just a quick follow up note after your session …immediate viewpoint after the session was stunningly optimistic and hopeful. The purpose of this note is to simply express my sincere thanks. I am very grateful. Hopefully I will learn to be as effective as you getting to communicate. I cannot thank you enough."
"Hi Karen, This is really random but I was just thinking about our session last night and how I am so grateful that you’re my therapist. I genuinely appreciate our sessions and they have immensely helped me. Just wanted to share this with you!"
"Karen Conkey is doing a wonderful job with my Grandson, and I am very pleased, especially given the difficult situation he has at home. I have referred several people here to the Behavioral Wellness Group in general. Thanks"
