    Karen is very personal and in tuned with actors she works with. She’s detailed and focused on bringing out the best with those she works with.

  • Jessica Kadish

    Karen is a wonderful coach. I always feel both safe with her and challenged by her. She doesn’t shy away from tackling an actor’s deepest fears or biggest roadblocks. As a result of her sessions I am more present and emotionally self-aware and able to bring myself to the material that I tackle. I’m very grateful to Karen!

  • Connor S.

    Karen was a fantastic instructor who stretched me in new ways and opened my eyes to the acting world. As somebody with no previous acting experience, I found her extremely patient and helpful. She spoke honestly without putting me down when and consistently encouraged me to dig deeper into different characters and find ways to project my own experiences into scenes. She's such an authenticate and compassionate person. I would highly recommend Karen!

  • Laurie Koel

    Karen is a wonderful acting teacher and coach. I've taken classes from her over the years and she continues to develop new exercises and techniques to help one grow as an actor. She is patient and very supportive. She is extremely clear in how she communicates her coaching instructions and why she suggests the exercises and instructions she gives. She is tremendously experienced as a coach, director and actor. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone at any level of acting experience!
