Karen Hurley

Registered Social Worker and Marriage and Family Therapist

For the past 20 years, Karen has been honoured to bear witness to the ever-changing learning of people’s personal and relationship journeys. Karen began her therapy practice in 1997 in order to join people in their quest for enriched and more fulfilling lives.

After earning her Master of Social Work degree at the University of Toronto, Karen completed post-graduate training, including studies in couples therapy at Harvard Medical School, emotionally focused therapy, insight oriented analytical psychotherapy and addictions studies.

It is Karen’s belief that psychotherapy is an exploratory process of understanding our unique life stories and where loss, pain, growth and joy are experienced. Therapeutic conversations are intimate journeys into the inner landscape of our being. They provide space for new understandings of events of our lives, and offer us new territories of awareness we could not otherwise gain.

Karen is a Registered Social Worker (RSW), a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist (RMFT) and a Clinical Member of the Ontario Association for Marriage and Family Therapy
