Throughout the journey, she will value you as an unique combination of mind, body and spirit. Together with Kari, you will uncover negative beliefs, spiritual wounds, and shame from your past, and replace behaviors that no longer serve your needs. Kari utilizes a variety of integrative therapeutic approaches, including cognitive restructuring, narrative formulation, experiential breath/body work, motivational techniques, trauma-informed therapy, and EMDR in working with individuals, couples, and seniors. She specializes in challenges such as grief and loss, women’s Issues, sexual abuse, trauma, spiritual formation, identity and personal development, anxiety, anger, aging-related issues, relationships, and forgiveness and reconciliation. Kari’s gentle approach to therapy is enhanced by her rich life experiences traveling and living in Europe, Africa, Central and South America, and several states in the U.S., and caring for her children and parents.
