Karen Rutter, LCSW

Karen received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Waynesburg College and Master of Social Work degree from the University of Pittsburgh.  She also holds a certificate from her Master of Social Work program in Labor and Industry.  Karen joined PERSOMA P.C. in 2004 where she works with individuals, couples, families, older adolescents, and young adults. Many of the issues she addresses include helping people who are struggling with life transitions, relationship problems, depression, anxiety, women’s issues or work stress.



“After working in a number of social services positions, it became clear that doing psychotherapy is my gift.  I strive to present a calm and accepting presences where people feel heard. We all have strengths, capabilities, and capacities that we at times lose sight of.  I work to help people reclaim those and explore options to get their life back on track.”
