“Compassion in action.”
That’s the Sanskrit meaning of our name. Karuna Counseling holds you with compassion, wherever you are in your healing journey.
We hear you. We’re here for you.
. . . That’s Who We Are.
We have a commitment to bringing Karuna’s intent of “compassion in action” into the therapy room. We believe that compassion – including self-compassion – is an essential component to healing and growth.
We are committed to holistic therapeutic approaches that respect and empower our clients. By looking at the “whole” of a person, we are able to observe how individual systems influence one another.
We share a deep awareness of the personal impact of culture, class, race, gender and gender identity, physical ability, sexual orientation, and spirituality.
You Might Be . . .
. . . Facing hard decisions. Ready to emerge. Dealing with trauma.
If you’re reading this right now, you’ve likely come here because things are just hard right now and you realize you could use some help cultivating new resources (both inside of you and maybe out in the world), healing recent or old relational or emotional wounds, shifting interpersonal patterns that are not serving or are even harmful to you, considering or already going through some major life transition or even just needing to talk with someone to help you understand for yourself – really hear yourself, maybe for the first time – what it is that you need right now.
We know that it might feel scary to be here right now. And we’re really glad you’re here.
Who We Work With
Our Areas of Focus
There is a broad range of challenges that bring people to therapy. Here we have included the most typical of these, however, this list is nowhere near exhaustive. If you do not relate to any of these areas of focus and are wondering if one of our therapists can help you to address your concerns, please feel free to send an inquiry through our Contact Us page.
How We Work
Traditional talk therapy forms the foundation of the work offered by each of our therapists. In addition, the following is a non-exhaustive list of additional or more specific approaches that may also be incorporated into the work you and your therapist create together.
On Our Minds
Taking a New Look at EMDR
A woman is walking in a park. As she walks, various thoughts – many of them upsetting – pop in and out of her mind. Later on, she notices that when she takes her mind back to these upsetting thoughts, they no longer feel as disturbing or intense. She feels lighter somehow . . .
