Meet Karen Covy

Karen Covy works with busy professionals and business people who are stuck in marriages that aren't working, and are living lives they don't love. She use sa structured coaching process to help her clients get clear about what they truly want in their marriage and their life, move past their fears, and make decisions with confidence.

Karen's coaching combines both head and heart. At the same time it's grounded in the principles of neuroscience, psychology, and the science of decision-making. 

As a speaker, Karen motivates and inspires people to work WITH their brains to unlock their ability to make better decisions - even tough, emotional decisions where the stakes are high and the outcome is uncertain. While marriage and divorce are certainly one area where knowing how to make tough decisions matters, the ability to make difficult decisions applies to almost every area of life.
