Karen Horneffer-Ginter

Psychologist & Author

Karen Horneffer-Ginter, Ph.D. is a psychologist and the author of “Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit: Nourishing the Soul When Life’s Just Too Much” (Hay House). She co-founded the Center for Psychotherapy and Wellness in Kalamazoo, Michigan, where she currently offers counseling, and served as the former Director of Western Michigan University's Integrative Holistic Health and Wellness Program. The aim of Karen's work is to reconnect people with the wisdom of their inner-life by reclaiming what gets lost amidst the busyness of day-to-day life: qualities such as stillness, self-care, creativity, joy, humor, gratitude, and compassion. Her intention is to support people in finding a sense of balance and sacredness in their lives. Her interests in this topic are based on an intersection of her professional and personal life, as a working mother of two children who knows, lives, and attempts to thrive within the busyness of daily life.
