Headshots for Psychotherapists, Healers, and Other  Professionals

Karen is an Associate Professional Clinical Counselor (#3801) and a professional wedding and portrait photographer for the last 20 years. As such, she is uniquely suited to provide headshots to the mental health and healing community of the East Bay and beyond. Karen has an easygoing, positive, and fun approach to her sessions that makes it a painless (maybe even enjoyable!) experience to have your photo taken. Therapists often warn Karen, in a very grave tone, that they are not photogenic, only to later rave about how much they love their photos.


Headshot sessions are one hour at your location of choice in or near Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda and include an online, password-protected gallery of all your images and up to 53of your favorites retouched and delivered both as high-resolution, print-ready files and web-optimized files.


Session fee is $275. Payment can be made with cash, check, Paypal, or Square. Please contact Karen using the contact link or email her directly at karenscape (at) gmail (dot) com to book your session now.



I have always considered myself unphotogenic and thus was quite anxious about getting a headshot. Karen was the perfect person for me to work with as she was calm, reassuring, positive and made me feel beautiful. When I saw the final photos I was so pleased, as they were better than any pictures I’ve ever seen of myself. She somehow captured my essence with both accuracy and artistry. I am so grateful to her!   – Courtney Breed, LCSW

Karen is a wonderful photographer to work with!  Her knowledge of using sunlight and natural environments is exceptional and she creates beautiful, warm photos.  She is great with her “models,” creating a fun, easy environment for the people she photographs, even if modeling couldn’t possibly feel farther from one’s natural talents.   – Jenifer Goss, MA, LMFT #99800

I really enjoyed my shoot with Karen and I love my photos! She is hilarious, down-to-earth, and had an exceptional understanding of what I was looking for. I highly recommend her for your portrait session!  -Dr. Asya Grigorieva, Licensed Psychologist, PSY29111

Karen has a grounded quality that made me feel very at ease. Her confidence that she’s going to get the shot allowed me to just relax and enjoy the experience. When I looked at the photos she took of me, and of others, I can see that she possesses a particularly skilled eye for the quality of light. She is the kind of photographer who can capture the true essence of a person. – Davida Taurek, MS, PCCI #3220
