My Approach to Helping

My name is Karen Canfield I am an Idaho girl and grew up in the Boise area.  I have been married for 39 years and have 3 children and one granddaughter.  I went to Boise State University and graduated with my undergraduate degree as well as my Masters degree.

I have been a mental health counselor in the Treasure Valley for the last 22 years.  I enjoy working with people and helping sort out the various issues you may be experiencing.

I want you to feel comfortable to share with me anything that you feel is important to share.  You will find unconditional positive regard in my practice.

Specific Issues I'm Skilled at Helping With

  • Anxiety & Depression 
  • Cognitive Issues
  • Mood & Personality Disorders
  • Neurodevelopmental Disorders
  • Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Social & Emotional Disorders

“To try to be like everyone else, is to deny the specialness that is you.”

A Few Services I Provide

Services also known as modes or types of mental health care sessions can be given in a variety of formats, including:

  • Individual Therapy & Counseling: This therapy involves only the patient and the therapist. Sometimes called psychotherapy or talk therapy is a process through which a client works one-on-one with a trained mental health clinician in a safe, caring, and confidential environment.
  • Premarital Counseling: A type of therapy that helps couples take the next step in their relationship, resolve issues in their relationship before they commit to marriage, or set relationship goals.
  • Family Counseling: Because family is a key part of the team that helps people with mental illness get better, it is sometimes helpful for family members to understand what their loved one is going through, how they themselves can cope, and what they can do to help.
  • Relationship Counseling: Focuses on improving the relationship between individuals by helping them resolve interpersonal issues. The relationship may fall under the marital, couple or family groups or may be in-laws, friends, co-workers, or other acquaintances.
  • Group Counseling: Two or more patients may participate in therapy at the same time. Patients can share experiences and learn that others feel the same way and have had the same experiences.
  •  Telehealth: Also known as teletherapy, generally, refers to individual psychotherapy or talk therapy delivered through technology like video conferencing.

Types of Therapy

Psychotherapy, also referred to as talk therapy, psycho-social therapy, counseling, or, simply, therapy, is the primary method for treating mental health problems by talking with a mental health provider. The goal is the help an individual better understand their mental health and teach strategies and tools that manage unhealthy thoughts and behaviors.

While there are many approaches to psychotherapy, there is no single approach that works for everyone. A therapist may use a blended approach, sampling techniques from several different types of psychotherapy. The kind of psychotherapy a person receives depends on his or her own unique needs.

Below are some of the types of psychotherapy I utilize.

  • Adlerian Psychology / Psychotherapy
  • Anger Management
  • Bibliotherapy
  • Brief Solution Focused Therapy 
  • Client-Centered Therapy 
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • Existential Psychotherapy 
  • Family Constellations
  • Feminist Therapy 
  • Gestalt Therapy 
  • Gottman Method
  • Journal Therapy
  • Person-Centered Therapy (Rogerian Therapy)
  • Positive Psychology
  • Psychotherapy

Industries & Communities Served

Community can be defined in many ways, but when simplified down to its most important element, community is all about connection. Community is not just an entity or a group of people, it’s a feeling. It’s feeling connected to others, feeling accepted for who you are and feeling supported.

We’re social beings, and we are not meant to live in isolation. Community is critical for us to thrive, especially for someone with mental illness who is already experiencing the common symptoms of loneliness and isolation. Below are some of the communities I work with to help provide a sense of belonging, support and purpose.

  • LGBTQIA+
  • Gay Allied
  • Lesbian Allied
  • Non-Binary Allied
  • Open Relationships Non-Monogamy
  • Queer Allied
  • Sex-Positive, Kink Allied
  • Transgender Allied

Facility Accessibility

Morgan Health Centers and its Affiliates are outpatient centers and NOT an emergency care facility. In case of an emergency please contact a primary care physician or the local emergency room, police or 911.

Those with disabilities often face major barriers getting the health care services they need. Research shows that, compared to people with out disabilities, people with disabilities are less likely to receive comprehensive preventative care. Improving physical access to health care services is essential to achieving health equity. 

We recognize the needs of patients with disabilities, and make every effort to comply with state and federal accessibility regulations and accommodate these patients.

  • Accessible Parking
  • Gender Neutral Bathroom
  • Service Animals Welcome
  • Wheelchair Accessible Building
