Karen Finch, LPC

Karen Finch has been a Licensed Professional Counselor and a K-12 School Counselor for the past 25 years. An outdoor educator, Ropes Course Instructor, author, and avid adventurer, Karen has successfully integrated experiential education into her counseling practice.

Specializing in Trauma Informed Care and behavior management strategies, Karen has facilitated over 100 trainings to local and state agencies on a variety of topics. 

Recently retired from the schools, Karen has trained with the Natural Lifemanship Institute on delivering trauma informed equine-assisted therapy. She has been using this lifetime of experience helping local youth and agencies at Medicine Horse Center since December 2018.

“What inspires me about Medicine Horse is the connections clients make with the horses, and themselves, in such a short time. I think that saying is true that the best therapist has fur and four legs.”

Fun fact: Karen used to have a therapy dog, Stickeen, that went to school with her.
