Hi, welcome to my website I hope the information answers questions you might have. My name is Karen Stevensen, and I am licensed as an independent clinical social worker, LICSW, and I have a MSW and a  MDiv degree. My practice is a limited liability company, LLC.

I grew up in a suburb of Los Angeles, completed my BA at Augustana University in Sioux Falls, SD and went to the University of Illinois in Urbana, IL for graduate school. After completing my master’s degree in social work I came to Minneapolis and worked for Lutheran Social Services for ten years. Through this work I decided to attend seminary for a theological education. I received my Masters of Divinity degree from Luther Seminary in 1999. I was ordained as a Lutheran Pastor and served from 1999 to 2005 as a half-time associate pastor at St. Luke’s in Bloomington, MN and continued my counseling practice half-time. In March 2005 I returned to counseling full-time and I opened my present office in St. Paul.

In my free time I like taking motorcycle rides with my husband Grant and going to the north woods. I enjoy photography, pottery and reading. We have five sons and an amazing grand daughter and we enjoy time together with our family. and friends.
