Karen Keen is founder and primary provider at The Redwood Center for Spiritual Care in Durham, North Carolina. More than anything, she loves seeing people come alive as they experience meaningful connection with God and others. Karen first honed her listening and helping skills while earning degrees in psychology and counseling (B.S., Corban University; M.S., Western Oregon University).
Working as a mental health therapist she became convinced that spiritual wellness forms the foundation for all other well-being. Karen earned her certificate in spiritual direction from the Training Program for the Ministry of Spiritual Direction under the auspices of the Faithful Companions of Jesus, a congregation of Catholic Sisters in the Ignatian tradition. She has also enjoyed pondering questions of faith through advanced biblical and theological studies (M.A., Western Seminary; Th.M., Duke Divinity School). Karen loves listening to people from all walks of life.
