About Kari

I am a Post-Doctoral resident with a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D) and Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology from Midwestern University. I am also a board certified music therapist and received my degree from the University of North Dakota. I have worked within the juvenile correction system, forensic state hospital, private practice, and community mental health. My experience has included individual and group therapy with adolescents and adults who suffer from serious mental illness, trauma, addictions, personality disorders, sexual offending behaviors, and criminal thinking.

I believe in collaborating and utilizing a person-centered approach to treatment while incorporating techniques from various modalities that resonate with you. I encourage the utilization of your creative mind while looking introspectively to bypass potential roadblocks that we put up for ourselves. I recognize that therapy can be difficult and I value being entrusted with the process.

When I’m not working I enjoy reading, spending time with family and friends, and traveling.

As a Post-Doctoral Resident, I am currently under the supervision of Marcus Earle, Ph.D., LMFT,
