Karen Davis, LISW, has an MSW with 25 years of clinical experience, and is a Classical Homeopath, having graduated of Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy, a four-year school in Minneapolis. She has continued her studies with renowned homeopaths around the world. She offers a unique practice combining these two modalities.
Karen had been a therapist for many years when she realized some of the limitations of talk therapy. After trying desperately to change patterns within herself and assist her clients to shift patterns, she turned her attention to energy medicine. Homeopathy and flower essences began working immediately to shift emotional and mental patterns that were previously unchanged. With energy medicines, clients were able overcome their life long patterns, addictions, traumas and limiting beliefs; as well as many other health concerns.
She brings her years of experience as a psychotherapist and her deep understanding of health and disease to her homeopathic practice. She recommends homeopathic remedies, flower essences, gemmotherapy tonics, oligotherapy and many other natural products designed to support, drain and repair the systems in the body.
Karen’s expertise is in treating mental health and addiction issues without drugs. She is particularly interested in helping people resolve issues that have been unresponsive to medication and talk therapy. Many people come to Karen who are still depressed and anxious even though they are taking the highest doses of medications available. The medications are causing side effects but the person is afraid they will get worse if they stop the drugs; so they are caught in a vicious cycle. Other mental health issues that are responsive to homeopathy include fears and phobias, PTSD, OCD, Tourette’s, Mood Swings, Anger and Rages, Panic Attacks, and behavior problems in children. She has also been successful in helping people stop addictions such as alcohol and drugs, compulsive eating, bulimia, anorexia, co-dependency, sex, internet, and gambling.
She can work with clients in both modalities, or just one. Many therapists refer their clients for homeopathy, as the remedies help therapy go faster and offer support for facing painful material in the therapeutic process.

What is homeopathy and what can it do for me?
Homeopathy is a 200-year-old system of medicine that uses very dilute micro doses of a natural substance to stimulate the body’s own healing. It is the second most popular system of medicine in the world today.
Homeopathy is based on the idea of “like cures like” meaning the same substance that could cause symptoms, when diluted hundreds of times, actually cures the same symptoms. Because the substance is diluted so many times, there is nothing left in the remedy except an energetic imprint of the original substance. This is why we can use substances such as Belladonna, which would be poisonous in the material dose, but is perfectly safe when used as a remedy.
Homeopathic remedies are safe for everyone including infants, pregnant women, the elderly and pets. There are no side effects, and no suppression of symptoms; just a gentle stimulation of the body to heal itself.
Homeopathy offers a new perspective on health and disease. In the homeopathic system of medicine, we believe that health is a state of freedom; freedom from pain and restriction in the body and freedom from pain and restriction in the mind. These things seem pretty clear, and basically mean that you can forget about the body and the mind, and get on with creative and soulful living. But most of us don’t experience this freedom. Most of us feel aches and pains in the body, and mental/emotional symptoms such as anxiety or depression in the mind. These symptoms become front and center, and distract us from living wholeheartedly.
We have been “trained” by modern medicine and the pharmaceutical industry, to “remove” these uncomfortable symptoms by taking drugs. We have been told that the symptoms are the problem and need to be eliminated. While it is true that drugs can eliminate our awareness of symptoms, they don’t eliminate the disease process that is going on underneath.
What if we viewed our symptoms as information to consider? What is our headache about? What is our anxiety trying to tell us? Why do we feel such irritability and desire to drink? Why are we eating to excess every night in front of the TV? These symptoms are messages from our vital force that something is out of balance and desperately needs attention. These “energetic” imbalances (symptoms) are the beginning of a deeper disease process. This disease process can be slowed or stopped right here, at this level, before it progresses further. If we pay attention and heal these symptoms, with homeopathic energy medicines, we can prevent further illness.
If you understand that disease develops out of an imbalance in the vital force, then it is an easy choice to heal the smaller symptoms before they progress to deeper tissue changes in the body.
