Karen Ashton Justice, LCSW

Are you struggling a fertility issue, anxiety, or sadness? Are you having difficulty coping with medical testing and treatments, suffered a recent loss, or feel like your life has been put on hold? You have come to the right place. I offer a comfortable and confidential place where we can have very open discussions about these issues, and help you develop coping skills to deal with them. My extensive professional and personal experience in these areas makes me a unique choice, and greatly lends to my empathy and understanding. It would be my privilege to work with you.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 30 years of experience providing counseling to help individuals cope with the psychological effects of medical issues. I have degrees on the fields of Psychology and Social Work. I have worked in several major hospitals and medical facilities in South Florida, as well as several psychiatric hospitals in the Northeast. As a native Floridian, I also love to spend time volunteering in my local community.

You may choose to meet with me individually or as a couple. The option to meet as a couple is particularly useful when going through IVF In Vitro Fertilization. We can meet in my office or through Telehealth.

Contact me for a free 15-minute consultation. I look forward to working alongside you.
