Karisa also has a certificate in traumatic stress studies and continue to look for new ways to gain knowledge she can share with her clients.  She specializes in trauma resolution in the areas of love addiction, attachment, substance abuse, sexual issues, and family of origin issues.

Her work is heavily influenced by her training with Pia Mellody (Post Induction Therapy) and Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing).

Pia Mellody

Pia Mellody’s Post Induction Therapy (PIT) training model is helpful with a wide range of clients. It helps treat developmental immaturity issues or co-dependence to help individuals heal relations trauma.

Peter Levine

Peter Levine has also greatly influenced my work as a practitioner. I am in year two of his three year Somatic Experience training. Somatic Experiencing is a body-oriented approach to healing trauma and stress disorders.
