Karen McGreer & Associates​

Our office is in the Delaware Valley, in  Medford, NJ, bordering the Pinelands Natural Reserve of Burlington County, New Jersey. We are located 30 minutes east of Philadelphia and 45 minutes from the Jersey Shore.   We offer a variety of counseling services such as Marriage and Family Therapy, Sex Therapy, and Marriage Seminars.  We also do an inspirational entertainment or performance art called What's So Funny about Love & Marriage?! 

The Cornerstone

The cornerstone of the family is the marriage. Even the best relationships need to be regularly refined and refocused. Relationships, like all living things, need routine maintenance and nurturing. Committed partners benefit from special opportunities to re-connect by taking a look at how things are currently and how things can be improved.

Karen's goal...

 … is  to point the way to healthier marriages by supporting life-long growth for married partners. She encourages participation in the Marriage Enrichment movement, and has dedicated her life to strengthening marriages. 


The aim of Karen McGreer & Associates is to offer opportunities for couples and individuals to build on their strengths, skills, and resources to develop more satisfying relationships and therefore happier and healthier lives and  families. 

Testimonial

 "Thank you for meeting with us today. After meeting with you, we both instantly remembered why we liked your help! We left feeling uplifted and we had a practical plan for how to help ourselves during the next two weeks. Perhaps my husband said it best.  As we were leaving, he said "She is so knowledgeable." So thank you for making us feel comfortable and helping us see that our 'problems' are not unusual. We look forward to working on our marriage with you."  - R & J.

Counseling Services

Individual & Couple Therapy

We offer therapeutic services customized to match the needs of the individual or couple.

Family Therapy

Many of life's challenges impact the entire family system. The solution to these problems are enhanced by partner and family participation in therapy. 

Marriage Enrichment

Marriage Enrichment is a worldwide movement that began four decades ago as a way to strengthen marriages, and thus families. It is a process where couples build on their strengths to make good marriages better. The seminar is co-sponsored by Better Marriages, which was founded in 1973. Better Marriages is a nonprofit, non-sectarian organization whose mission is to affirm marriages based on partnership and companionship. Seminars are scheduled every 2-3 months. Karen McGreer is available to travel to your organization  for marriage enrichment events lasting anywhere from 2-8 hours. 


Why enrich your marriage?

Every marriage can suffer the effects of complacency. The only obstacle to a great marriage is a good marriage. Since there are no perfect people or perfect marriages, there is always room to grow.  Marriage Enrichment seminars are designed to stimulate private sharing between partners on the most commonly needed growth themes: communication, intimacy, conflict resolution, time management, parenting, finances. etc. 

Group Therapy

Share support and encouragement.  Group therapy is designed to enhance personal development and strengthen relationships.  At different times, different groups are formed.



Sex Therapy

Karen McGreer is one of the most experienced and  fully certified sex therapists in the Delaware Valley.  She has had a full-time private practice since 1986.  Her certification is through AASECT (American Association for Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists), the only sex therapy credentialing body in the United States. The field of sex therapy has been undergoing a major paradigm shift thanks to the theory and practice being taught by Dr. David Schnarch, author of Constructing The Sexual Crucible: Integration of Sexual and Marital Therapy (1991), and Passionate Marriage: Sex, Love, and Intimacy in Emotionally Committed Relationships (1997) and Resurrecting Sex: Solving Sexual Problems and Revolutionizing Your Relationship (2003). The goal of sex therapy is to assist clients to heal their sexual frustrations and disappointments, and then guide them to reach their sexual potential.


Sex therapy consultations in person are easily achieved by those traveling to the Delaware Valley, but Karen is available for phone and video consultations for those that are at a greater distance.

Up Close with Karen McGreer

"We all falter in life and in relationships at times. That makes us human, not defective. As a Marriage and Family Therapist and Certified Sex Therapist, I specialize in building healthier relationships. My style is to work holistically with the Mind-Body connection. Typically, I work with people or partners in crisis and then help them to use the crisis to grow. Our work together is highly personal and confidential. 


I feel so privileged to practice the Healing Arts. My work with clients is based on mutual respect and teamwork. Because I am very frank, people always leave my office feeling clearer about how to grow beyond their current limitations. For those having difficulty living with trauma, I am exited to use powerful tools of energy psychology like Heart Assisted Therapy© because they work quickly to resolve trauma."
