Karen holds a Master of Arts in Psychology with Honors from Regis University, Master of Science in Business Management and Organization from the University of Colorado, Master of Science Minor in Finance from the University of Colorado, and Bachelor of Science in Management from San Diego State University. She also has many certifications in psychological, behavioral and organizational assessments, training, and human performance improvement technologies.
Having a father who was a highly intuitive M.D. and surgeon, and mother who studied metaphysics, Karen grew-up with a strong foundation in science and spirituality.
She began her career consulting to Fortune 500 corporations in the area of human performance improvement. As President and founder of Performance By Design, LLC, a Company dedicated to individual and organizational brilliance, Karen has developed visionary leaders, successful companies, several universities, and has educated thousands of individuals in the areas of leadership, intuitive, human and organizational development. She continues to be a trusted
adviser to some of the most well respected executives in the world, has been
recognized by several Fortune 500 companies for developing a best practice
approach to human performance, consults to higher education, and has helped
numerous organizations increase productivity by over 195%.
In response to several personal losses, as well as desire to come
"out of the closet" with her intuitive and medium abilities and assist
people more profoundly, Storsteen started another business as a
transpersonal psychotherapist and psychic.
"It was a risk as the world of psychic and Corporate America had been
kept separate, at least overtly. I knew however, that tapping our intuition
leads to exponential intelligence and peace of mind. It is what is needed
to combat stress which diminishes higher brain functioning. I decided to
jump off the cliff and normalize the intuitive and psychic sciences in everyday
life. I am so happy that I did! Thank goodness for findings in neuroscience
and quantum physics! What once was considered science fiction is now
proven as scientific fact!"
In her private practice, people from all walks of life (law enforcement
officials, executives, engineers, mental health professionals, etc.) seek
Karen's counsel and teachings to find clarity in love, work and
life. She also helps those who are experiencing grief, anxiety and/or
depression and who are ready to let go of the past to experience the miraculous.
One of her greatest talents is connecting the living to loved ones on the other side. Her clients find that this helps them get to the root of emotional, physical, and spiritual issues quickly, uncover and express their life's purpose, and heal and celebrate relationships with deceased loved ones.
"My life is miraculous and daily experiences extraordinary. By the age of fourteen, I was clear that if I could help others uncover and express their Divine Spirit, that I too would be fulfilling my purpose. I am so blessed that my life's work continues to be an expression of my passion and that I can contribute in a meaningful way."
