Come as you are.
All of you is welcome here.
WELCOME! I am glad you are here.
Each of us is on a unique and fascinating soul journey. Marked by constant change, our lives present us with gateways and cycles that can feel challenging. Navigating initiations, integrating life experience and changing patterns requires skill to do successfully. I am here to explore with you the entire constellation of your journey.
You may be asking yourself questions like these:
How can I change my relationship patterns and attract a healthy partnership?
What can I do to create lucrative work that truly inspires me?
How can I release my self-sabotaging tendencies and move forward in life?
I’m so confused – what is the current story of my life?
How can I show up as a more authentic version of myself?
I have trauma from my past or my families’ past – how can I resolve it and live more freely?
You are not broken
Rather than viewing symptoms and suffering as something to be “fixed”, I view them as a creative expression of something that wants to be known.
Life can be traumatic and complicated. The very act of being born is traumatic. Many of us live daily with the effects of past trauma, oblivious to the origins of our present-day pain.
Even without these experiences, it is human nature to suppress our authentic self to meet the expectations of family, friends, teachers, and the pressures of society. Desperate to belong, we disassociate ourselves to fit in. We suppress the wisdom within. Some people can exist for decades on autopilot; numb, foggy, and distracted.
UNTIL ONE DAY, WE REALIZE…
There must be something more to life.
Healing is a process of exploration, observation and integration in relationship with oneself and a trusted other. A counselor creates and holds healing space for the whole you; the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual you. This powerful holistic approach is designed for you to feel seen, heard, and understood as never before. This opens the door to healing and leaps in personal and spiritual growth.
Transformational Spiritual Counseling will help you:
complete and release the past.
discover your authentic voice.
be empowered, courageous and inspired.
fulfill your potential.
lead & transform.
Unlike goal-oriented coaching – transformational spiritual counseling does not focus on a list of things to do to make life work better. It uniquely focuses on emotional and spiritual growth, holding space while you move through areas of pain and fear and reintegrate your parts of Self. When you are ready to choose a new path, your counselor will hold the guiding light.

True healing aims to seek out not what is broken, but what is hidden

What our clients have to say…
I chose Dr. Karina because she has profound understanding of the connection between the emotional body, spiritual body, mental and physical body. Her sessions offer a sacred space allowing deep healing, inviting my bodies to let go of layers of tension. I walk away with more clarity, feeling calm and centered, and connected to my spiritual self. She has a gift to heal at a soul level.

I highly recommend Dr Karina as her unique understanding of the human soul define her as the greatest doctor in acupuncture I have ever crossed path with. It is a privilege to be in her care and I highly recommend her services.

Frequently Asked Question
What is Transformational Spiritual Counseling?
Transformational Spiritual Counseling is a one-on-one engagement that guides you through the process of deep healing and spiritual growth.
A qualified practitioner creates a safe healing space and is deeply attuned to you as you explore your inner landscape.
The result is completion of unresolved trauma, release of self-limiting beliefs, discovery of your gifts and resources and their implementation in various aspects of your life
What is it like to experience deep healing?
The experience of deep healing is one of completing parts of the past, which can be powerful and life changing.
Some may be past events that you are not even aware of in the day to day, yet they may cause chronic suffering, anxiety and impact relationships to yourself and others.
In the process of transformation, clients report feeling:
- emotions that they have never felt before, such as pure joy
- liberated of emotional chains held for years or even decades
- like they have been realigned
- a renewed sense of purpose
- that they have a deeper understanding and trust of self
How many sessions of spiritual counselling do I need to see results?
This work is customized to each unique individual, so the short answer is “it depends”. Some people come for a handful of sessions and get what they need. Other people come regularly and do ongoing work to continue discovering and reaching new levels. I don’t prescribe sessions and there is no one-size-fits-all protocol. I offer co-creation and invite you to feel what is right for you.

What is a session like with Dr. Karina?
There are infinite ways that a session can unfold. You come as you are, and I meet you, as you are, in that moment.
Sessions may include talking, guided somatic processes, ceremonial rituals, role play, parts work, yoga, or reiki. I also use tools from plants, plant medicines and essential oils.
During a session, you may experience a profound insight and a deeper understanding of self. You may experience healing around core issues that are present in the moment.
You may experience feeling inspired and a deep sense of validation in honoring your journey. It is about discovery of the wisdom within, reconnection to self, and feeling a sense of belonging to a greater community as you live with a deeper sense of purpose.
I work with people online and in person. Both are very effective.
How does spiritual counseling differ from traditional coaching, counseling, or therapy?
Transformational spiritual counseling includes some elements of traditional coaching, counselling, and therapy, but the approach is more expansive and without a prescribed agenda.
As well as holding space for you to discover what lies within, a lot of the work is embodied; we work with body awareness, mindfulness practices, interoception, and proprioception.
We may include integrative medicine, plant medicine, herbs, and supplements to support your physiology. We may look at lifestyle and support you with spiritual practices and tools. It is a truly holistic process, guided by your needs in your journey.
There is also an energy work component – I bring the gift of intuition to create a space and opportunity for deeper and broader terrain to be traversed.
All of you is welcome here. You can be your complete self in this space. Every person has many inner characters, or archetypes that comprise our inner worlds – and sometimes they are not in alignment. Sometimes there is arguing between the parts, so we may do parts work to reconcile internal conflict.
Is a Zoom session as powerful as in-person?
Occasionally, I hear a concern about whether new clients will be able to feel connected and get benefit for Transformational Spiritual Counseling via video sessions.
The answer is yes, you can!
Even for my more technologically challenged or highly sensitive clients.
The space for this work can exist powerfully using modern communication technology. The connection we create will transcend geographical locations. We can connect wholly. In addition, you can experience the benefits of guided self-acupressure, meditation, breathwork, yoga therapy, and somatic-emotional processing to access your inner wisdom and activate an innate healing response.
As a holistic therapy, you can also optimize your health using natural medicine and wellness practices, from the comfort of your own home. AND for US residents, functional medicine, nutritional and oriental medicine, test kits, herbs and supplements can be shipped when needed.
