Watch a short video about our Therapy Services


Professional psychotherapy is offered to bereaved adults, teens, children, couples, and families whose loss is complicated by higher degrees of trauma, and/or additional relational or emotional circumstances. 


While our peer support model is appropriate for many, some individuals have circumstances that complicate their grief work, such as multiple losses, complex family relationships, depression, anxiety, or stress reactions due to traumatic circumstances. These individuals may benefit from therapy rather than or in addition to Kara's peer support services. The therapy services are also unique as couples and families can be seen together on an on-going basis. Additionally, Kara makes referrals to other community resources and private therapists when appropriate for the individual or family.


The clinical team providing therapy to Kara's clients consist of Associate Marriage & Family Therapists, Associate Clinical Social Workers, and Marriage & Family Therapist Trainees who are completing their supervised clinical service hours in preparation for the licensure exam. The team has a depth of knowledge and experience dealing with the complex issues of grief and loss in addition to excellent clinical training. Their areas of interest include working with clients suffering from depression, anxiety, trauma, suicide, neglect, spousal loss, terminal illness, and end of life issues. Members of the team work with children, teens, adults, couples, and families. In addition, individual members of the team have received specialized training in Child Development, Interpersonal Neurobiology, DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), Critical Incident Stress Management, and MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction). This combination of experience and training makes Kara's psychotherapy services a unique resource for our community.
