About Kari

Hi, I’m Kari Gundersen.

Are you looking for deeper meaning in your work or relationships? Trying to create change in your life but feel stuck? Unsure of your next steps? Not even sure where to begin? It’s ok, sometimes we all need someone to talk to.

Everyone needs a safe space where we can put down our armor and be our true selves. To say how we’re really feeling. Without that opportunity, our batteries wear down pretty fast. 

I help people of all genders improve emotional & relational intelligence, heal from stress or trauma, and live smoother, deeper, more meaningful lives. My method is a holistic blend of Transpersonal Psychology, Family Systems, Compassionate Inquiry, Inner Child Work, Polyvagal Theory, and Post Traumatic Growth. Private counselling sessions for adults, students, and couples. (Ask me about my student discount)

A typical session with me includes compassionate conversation with a dash of critical thinking and philosophical theory. Deeper work may include some inspired breathwork or guided meditation. I might encourage you to try an art therapy exercise as homework between meetings. My aim is that you will gain some therapeutic "correction" from every single session.

YES, I am currently accepting new clients and I would love to hear from you.
