Services Provided at Karner Psychological Associates

No matter how smart, talented or good you are, sometimes life will throw you a problem that is just too big and complex to adequately handle on your own. Reading self-help books, or even by getting advice from friends and relatives are not always enough to maintain your mental health or personal health. These are the times that counseling, psychotherapy and coaching can be helpful. We have been providing timely, ethical, quality mental health services to kids, teen, parents, individuals, couples, groups and families throughout New York’s greater Capital District for over two decades.
