Karin blends her interest of teaching and fostering personal growth by teaching group psychotherapy, leading yoga teacher trainings and offering psychotherapy services to individuals and groups.  Her approach to therapy acknowledges the client’s inherent wisdom to both identify and resolve on-going challenges while recognizing the benefits of walking the path of learning together.  Her theoretical orientation is informed by the rich tradition of non-dual philosophies arising from the East, like Buddhism and Yoga, which emphasis mindfulness and compassion.



Students at Naropa are eager to learn.  Their enthusiasm and willingness to engage is contagious and keeps me curious about my own edges and what else I might learn about relationship.
