    Studio Karen Rigatti - Professional Counseling in Milan: Couples counseling

    in Education

    In this episode, Karen Rigatti discusses how self-esteem is an important part of the expat experience. Often couples have conflicts when the stay-at-home partner feels isolated while the other has the regular routine provided by a job and colleagues. Overwhelm is a common problem for a non-Italian spouse who has to rely on the Italian partner for large parts of her life that she previously managed herself.


    In her English-speaking counseling practice in Milan, Italy, Karen Rigatti helps couples with relationship issues, parenting of a new baby and culture shock and other challenges faced by expats. As a certified professional counselor,she specializes in working with clients on stress management, anxiety, life transitions (marriage, divorce, new parenthood), work-related conflicts, couples therapy, and cross cultural issues. Her office is centrally located in the Bocconi University area, overlooking Parco Ravizza.


    Karen has made Milan her home since 2008. Originally from the US, she specializes in helping other English-speakers improve their quality of life through professional counseling.


    Originally from Arlington, Virginia, Karen graduated with a degree in Psychology from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She transferred to San Francisco and then London, before moving to Milan where she lives with her two daughters who were born here.


    Prior to opening her counseling practice, she led the European Recruiting team at the London office of international law firm Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe and she began her career in mental health as Admissions Director of Behavioral Health at Northern Virginia Doctor’s Hospital.


    Karen is a member of both the American Counseling Association and AssoCounseling in Italy, holding a Master’s degree in Counseling from the Centro Berne in Milan.

    "The Perils of Christian Counseling!"

    in Family

    We just completed an exhaustive series on "Marriage, Adultery & Divorce" last month (see the Adam & Eve archived shows). One of the perils we have noticed is that Christians  have not exceeded the divorce rate of the modern culture, but we are catching up!
    The failure of many Pastors to present viable, QUALIFIED Counselors as options for their troubled married or engaged couples is beyond me. Don't get me wrong, Counseling (or wise counsel) is critical for anyone, but when it comes to marriage or divorce, the individuals providing the service should be certifed and trained.
    Not every Pastor should be counseling folks just because he or she is the Pastor. Given their known limitations, they should defer to someone else UNLESS they themselves are qualified to administer proper counsel. Many Pastors offer excellent wisdom and healhy choices to their congregation, however, there are those we need to steer clear of as well.
    Tonight on "UNCUT" we are going to discuss the perils associated with unqualified counseling and propose several remedies to help you, your spouse and family to get back on the right path to victorious living!
