It's not easy to reach out and ask for help. But what I want you to know is that everyone needs somebody to talk to at some point in their lives. It doesn't mean you're weak or sick or less than anyone else. It just helps to have a neutral third party you can say anything to. No matter what's coming up for you now, you can talk to me.

Treatment Approach

  • Existential/Humanistic
  • Family Systems
  • Feminist
  • Gottman Method
  • Hypnotherapy
  • Person-Centered
  • Psychoanalytic
  • Solution-Focused Brief Therapy
  • Transpersonal
Approach Description: A typical therapy session with me is a deep, compassionate conversation with a sprinkle of critical thinking, a dash of philosophical theory, and a meditation garnish. I like to fill my office chalkboard with diagrams or lists of helpful information as we talk so you can take a picture with your phone before you leave. Pocketful of resources, to go!

Creative Spirit Therapy by Kari Gundersen Practice Description
My therapeutic technique is a holistic blend of Transpersonal Psychology, Bowen Family Systems, Trauma-Informed, Compassionate Inquiry, Polyvagal Theory, Inner Child Work, and Post-Traumatic Growth. I use an intuitive approach to shine a light on any potential opportunities for healing. My practice is progressive, intersectionally feminist, Pro-Choice, Anti-Racist, Queer, Trans, and Sex Worker friendly. You are centered and considered in the therapeutic space. I come from a lifelong background in the Arts as a formally trained dancer, photographer, set designer, and gallery manager before my journey into the healing world. I'm an imaginative, visual thinker who will connect you to your own creative spirit. Creativity gives you control over your experience.
