Kari is awesome. She can take in what I share during sessions or in what I write in reply to journal prompts and she find nuggets for me to reflect on. She is easy to talk to about therapy topics as well as briefly conversing about life in general. Kari is well equipped with worksheets/exercises to help patients in their recovery. I tend to write a lot in my replies to journal prompts. I very much appreciate Kari talking time to read all that I write.

I appreciate our sessions because they feel safe and supportive. We generally laugh about something and it helps shift my perspective. I enjoy that she uses worksheets and does cbt with me to help me achieve a more balanced and centered life that feels aligned.
