Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Karli, a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. I feel honored to support those navigating traumatic stress, anxiety, mood dysregulation, women’s issues, perinatal mental health, food & body related stress, life transition, and interpersonal concerns.
I approach therapy with roots in holistic mental health, feminist and relational therapies, as well as attachment and trauma theories. My time with clients prioritizes their identified needs, goals, and strengths; focuses on collaboration to take next steps toward growth, change, and acceptance; and bolsters the mind-body connection along with a sense of community. It is my belief that storytelling, meaning making, and mindful awareness enhance personal reflection and growth. In sessions, I emphasize our shared humanity with kindness, authenticity, and humor to foster a supportive therapeutic connection. I teach skills to cope with daily life and incorporate neuroscience, mindfulness, yoga, CBT/DBT skills, and related media (books, podcasts, etc.) into sessions.
I graduated from Portland State University with a Master’s Degree in Social Work and from University of Wisconsin- La Crosse with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Spanish. I have experience in a variety of settings- from an outpatient mental health clinic and crisis clinic to schools and non-profits. My education and experience has emphasized the necessary integration of trauma-informed care and social justice into mental healthcare.
I invite you to reach out if you feel we may be a good fit. It would be my privilege to connect and discuss how therapy could help. I look forward to meeting you!
