Karen Luise, PhD
Dr. Karin Luise is a sought-after psychotherapist, writer, motivational speaker and co-founder of The Fatherless Daughter Project. True to her hometown, Dr. Karin was born, raised and resides in Atlanta. Not being raised by her biological father, and having been abused by her stepfather, Dr. Karin never had a space of safety in the life of a man as she matured. Growing up in fear, distrust, and unaware of how to relate to men, Dr. Karin has transformed and rebooted her life, and now lives by her ultimate goal: to uncover your authentic truth and stand inside it in strength, peace and purpose.
Dr. Karin received her Early Childhood Education degree from Wesleyan College, her Master’s degree in Counseling from Argosy University, and her PhD in Counselor Education and Practice from Georgia State University. After college, Dr. Karin taught elementary and middle school before setting out on her journey as a therapist and educator. Back in the 90’s, Dr. Karin had a year of writing and producing her own live television segment, “Karin’s Korner,” on the local NBC affiliate in Atlanta.
A humanitarian at heart, Dr. Karin is deeply committed to the mission of the Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities for over a decade, as well as Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Dr. Karin is happiest when she is entertaining, cooking, practicing photography, stretching in Pilates and playing with her three children and family dog.
