"Well structured and balanced training, combining videos, tools and decks. In-depth and thorough, without being overwhelming. Evidenced-based. Very relational and grounded in compassion and understanding. I highly recommend this training." –Karen Hlady
INTENTA GRADUATE 2020
Karen has over 25 years experience working with youth and families, from addictions to foster care to alternative education. She understands the fragility of mental health and precariousness of social acceptance with our young folks today.
Many youth and young adults lack the skills to navigate the physical world but find comfort and collegiality in the virtual world. By spending time daily walking her dogs in the woods, playing hockey when she can, Karen allows herself the time and space required to dedicate herself to supporting young people in developing the skills, confidence, and resilience they need to navigate today’s complex world.
Holding a master’s degree in leadership, and soon to be accredited with an International Gaming Disorder Certification, Karen is committed to helping people find balance between the virtual and physical worlds.
