Karen Leah Krulevitch, MA, Marriage & Family Therapist in Santa Barbara
I have been a psychotherapist in Santa Barbara, CA since 1974. My style is varied, incorporating Gestalt therapy, active listening, inner child work, assertiveness training, and guided imagery. Licensed since 1980 as a Marriage and Family Therapist, I enjoy working with couples, regarding issues of healthy sexuality, intimacy, and communication. Individual women and men,working on their sexual self esteem, are some of my favorite clients. For over fifteen years, I have also been leading groups for Adults Molested as Children, as well as their partners. Focus on breath and body is integral to my way of working in session.
Issues which interest me in guiding my clients include exploring a more healthy sexuality, growing intimacy, and building communication skills. Support in learning to nurture oneself is also part of our therapeutic hour. Clients report that I am gentle, but directive if necessary.
I generally do not give a lot of advice but let people work things out for themselves, with questioning and information-sharing on my part as needed. A brief consultation on the phone is available to see if we might work well together.
