Karen Schaffer, CHt

Karen grew up in the Midwest and spent many wonderful summers at the lake. There, she developed a respect for the beauty of nature and the value of extended family.

A graduate of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Karen met her husband of 38 years, and graduated with a B.S. in Medical Technology. She has worked in hospital laboratories as well as physicians’ offices. Karen was a Clinical Instructor for hematology (blood studies) at St. Louis University and at Oakland Community College.

After raising three children she made a dramatic shift from the left brain scientific approach to thinking to the more intuitive and creative right brain approach. Through her on-going quest for greater understanding in her personal and spiritual potential, Karen has cultivated a balanced approach to her own life’s challenges and gifts.

Today, Karen is a hypnotherapist, certified by the NATH (National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapists), and has advanced education in past life regression and life between lives regression. Karen is certified in the Reiki method of natural healing and is certified in the Personal Prophesy method.  She lives in Virginia Beach in a peaceful setting on the river with her husband.

Her hobbies include reading, traveling, dream groups, the tarot, and yoga.
