Evelyn Brown

I work with adolescents, adults and partners who are experiencing life changes, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, trauma, relationship problems, family issues, difficult medical diagnosis, and existential questions about life. I also enjoy working with my fellow healthcare workers experiencing grief, anxiety, and/or trauma, especially within the present Pandemic. My therapeutic focus is empowering my clients using a Positive Psychology approach that begins with uncovering and/or validating the client’s individual strengths. Then we collaborate together to work through those identified concerns. 
My hope for your therapy is your personal independence, strength and freedom so you may live the life you want and be the person you want to be!

Karen Moist

Karen Moist, M.A., L.P.C. is in private practice in the St Louis area as KRM Therapeutic Associates. KRM focuses on helping children who have experienced developmental trauma and the families who support these children. Trauma is the result of feeling helpless in a situation, so the mission of KRM is to help each child and their family move from surviving to thriving by helping the child heal from the trauma experiences, and interrupting the effects the trauma  continues to create in the way the individual views the world. The Deconstructing Anxiety method provides the child with a way to interrupt the cycle of fear and defense, allowing the
interruption of the effects of trauma. Additionally, Karen is trained in Gestalt Therapy, The Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT), Brainspotting, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Play Therapy, Rhythmic Movement Therapy (RMT), and Emotional Freedom Tapping (EFT).
