Dr. Karen McDonald is the author of Racheal’s Rest’s BLOGS. Dr. Karen is a board-certified Christian Counselor through the Georgia Board of Examiners for Christian Counselors and Therapists and currently leads all Racheal’s Rest retreats. She is a trauma specialist that sees adult, teen and child clients ages 3 and up in her Kennesaw, Georgia location. Karen grew up with domestic violence and sexual abuse on a daily basis. She survived and developed a passion for helping others find restoration from abuse. Because she has struggled through her own journey of recovery, she knows how much courage and determination it takes to overcome the fears, shame and guilt, spiritual confusion, relationship issues, and parenting difficulties survivors face. Furthermore, she has wisdom, training and skills to pass along techniques to those who are ready to change their lives. You can look forward to Dr. Karen’s BLOGS at least once a month….if not more!
