Karen Faust

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor Karen provides Christian Counseling in Adams, Brown, Clinton, Fayette and Highland Counties. She is based at the Pricetown Church Christ in Highland County which is her home church.  She graduated from Cincinnati Christian University with a Master of Arts Degree in Counseling. She practices from a Christian perspective.  This means that she uses biblical principles such as forgiveness, integrity, respect, love, etc. as standards for behavior.   While at CCU she learned that counseling is not about knowing what to say or do but about knowing how to listen.  When we have problems we often have the same issue – we do things on our own instead of listening to what God is telling us. 

She is married to Jim Faust who is an elder at the Pricetown Church.  They live on the home farm.  They have 2 sons who also live on the home farm with their families.  They have 6 grandsons.  She is also on the Board of Directors of the Southern Ohio Pregnancy Center.
 
Karen does not have set office hours.  She can be contacted to set up an appointment on Thursdays.
