I am here for you. Let's get started.
HELLO AND WELCOME
Therapy with Karmona Counseling can be a powerful way to achieving happiness, acceptance and greater life satisfaction. I approach each client and couple with compassion, empathy and value the unique life experience and vision of my clients. Sessions honor each person's needs and comforts, helps the individual understand, gain insight and develop a greater capacity. We will work together to discover areas of focus and what may need attention.
Allowing your truth and experience to be held and seen in a comforting space, can open the pathways to new found regulation, clarity and freedom from great discomfort.
I incorporate conventional and contemporary approaches to therapy. While valuing each unique narrative or story, blending talk therapy with aspects of somatic therapies can be powerful for regulation and integration. I draw from psychodynamic, attachment, and somatic modalities (the body can be used as a guide to offer further insight, release and organization) to address focus points, to heal that which causes dis-ease.
People come to me for help with:
Trauma (recent or with history)
Body Oriented Treatment/Somatic work
(either to compliment talk therapy or independent of)
(To form healthier relationships with themselves and/or others)
To increase self awareness and gain ability to better self regulate
Safe and Sound Protocol
Through a collaboration between therapist and client, sessions will help you explore the causes of emotional upset, validate normal responses to adverse experiences and integrate the past and present. Come and feel empowered in your connection to self and others.
Based on adult attachment theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) provides a system to identify underlying concerns, provide a safe connection, and create a path forward that builds a safe and secure connection.
Our physiology (tissues, muscles, fascia etc.) hold the story and memory of past experiences and developmental trauma. With the help of this model named "Transforming the Experienced Based Brain", referred to here as Transforming Touch, clients can organically repair natural and understandable ruptures and disconnects caused by trauma. This modality involves a therapy table and gentle touch from your provider.
Stephen Porges Poly Vagal theory comes alive in this passive auditor therapy. Here you can achieve relief from symptoms caused by nervous system activation.
