About

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. We go our whole lives acting like everything’s fine, but you don’t have to look very far beneath the surface to see there’s more going on behind our brave faces.
My method is a holistic blend of Transpersonal Psychology, Bowen Family Systems, Polyvagal Theory, Compassionate Inquiry, Inner Child Work, and Post Traumatic Growth. My practice is progressive, intersectionally feminist, Pro-Choice, Anti-Racist, Queer- Trans- and Sex Worker-friendly. I'm a creative, visual thinker and sometimes I communicate in pictures.
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.

Kari Gundersen's Groups

Revision Writer's Group

Reclaim your voice. Creative writing is one of the most powerful ways to process our emotions because it allows us to gain authority over how our story is told. Emotional experiences often elude verbal language. We may recall time shifts, metaphorical imagery or fragmented information; which lend themselves beautifully to the poetic form. Instead of reliving a painful experience, let’s make something out of it. Group therapy is also 40% less expensive than individual sessions.
