About Dr. Karin Lawson

I am a licensed clinical psychologist, an adjunct professor and a psychoanalytic candidate. First licensed as a psychologist in the state of California (PSY23438), I then became a Florida licensed psychologist in 2011 (PY 8275). Speaking at over 15 professional conferences and workshops around the country has been a highlight of my professional life. In addition, I have presented webinars and have been interviewed on international podcasts. I teach and supervise in the clinical psychology doctoral program at Nova Southeastern University, which feels full-circle. Nova was my doctoral program back in the early 2000s. 

For many years I was considered a certified eating disorder specialist and approved supervisor through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP). While I let that credential go in summer of 2021 to focus on new endeavors, I know that supporting the healing work of eating disorder patients will always be a part of my practice.

I truly feel honored when someone decides to take up this work with me. To me, it is interesting and meaningful. I don’t take it lightly. I want to dive in with you, understanding what you need more of . . . or less of . . . to be more alive and more you.

Adventures & Associations

Professional Adventures

My current adventure in my professional life is contemporary psychoanalytic training in NYC with a group of therapists from around the United States. This will be a ongoing endeavor until 2025 and includes supervision with a psychoanalytic psychologist, my own psychoanalysis, seminars …and traveling to New York City. 

To say I have a dedication and love for the field of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis is an understatement. My work is a large part of my life. I am invested in learning, exploring and being curious about life with others. I find my work with patients enlivening, intellectually stimulating and personally meaningful.
