More about Karen Tucker
As a Type 9, and always struggling to understand myself, my talents and passions, or if I even had any (Type 9s, and 6s – for different reasons, struggle the most in their “identity”), the Enneagram has been a game changer for me. Even as a Type 9 I have finally been able to put understanding to what has always seemed like being lost and living in a fog. The Enneagram is an invaluable tool that can be used to unlock so much in fully understanding oneself.
I have long been intrigued by the little details of people (i.e. personality, why they do what they do, Love Languages, etc – people’s whys). During the years of my counseling education I was further intrigued with personality, attachment styles, impact of one’s family of origin on who they are, etc. I learned numerous theories, philosophies/ideas, etc. toward understanding these whys. Although these theories do shed light on these whys nothing informs these questions, or with the clarity and perspective, the way that the Enneagram does.
Now in midlife, married 36 years, and with two adult children, my life experience has been varied and a bit atypical: 20 years as a homemaker and homeschool mom; church nursery director; co-lead Women’s Ministry; and church sound system. I have also managed a small homeschool book store, taught elementary school, and even been a school principal. I also have degrees in counseling (biblical and clinical mental health). Even though I am not a licensed counselor God is bringing my education, teaching, and leadership experiences together in my coaching. While I am still a work in progress I am excited for the opportunity to come alongside of you to help guide you toward personal and relational change.

The Enneagram has helped me to better understand not only my own personality and motivations but also more of my husband’s.
Working with Karen was very helpful. Her kind and caring approach is exactly what I needed. She gave me different and helpful perspectives on things that I am struggling with. And the additional homework that she gave me helped me to stay focused and have defined things to work on to help me process and move forward. Paula (Type 9)
Karen is a compassionate and attentive listener. Even though I had a fairly good grasp of the enneagram before meeting Karen, talking it out with her helped me to better understand myself. Karen guided me through exploring my enneagram type with thought-provoking questions that were fitted for me. I appreciated her timely responses to every communication, her warmth and sincerity, her heart, and her wisdom. -Stephanie (Type 1)
