AUTHENTICITY

At its core, therapy is a healing process in the context of a relationship. We believe authenticity is a key component of that relationship. Many traditional therapies incorporate a style that is intended to be neutral but can sometimes feel detached. At Karom and Associates, we embrace the idea that a therapeutic relationship is real. Our clients can significantly benefit from us bringing our personalities and our caring hearts more fully into the room.

COMMUNITY

Connection and social support are essential in cultivating mental and emotional health. At Karom and Associates, we value our community and strive to bring help and opportunities for connection to the community we serve. We offer webinars and workshops, collaborate with other wellness providers, and hold specialized group therapy.

COMPASSION

So much of the pain and hurt in the world occurs in situations where compassion is missing. And, for many people, a lack of self-compassion lies beneath issues with self-esteem, communication, and intimacy. As therapists, we have a unique opportunity to bring a compassionate view to situations and struggles that have been lacking – and compassion is contagious! So we often see how offering compassion can prompt our clients to bring their compassion to themselves and others.

INCLUSIVITY

No two people encounter life in the same way. Our experiences, how others perceive us, and the issues we struggle with are profoundly influenced by the various facets of our identities. Race, sexuality, gender, dis/ability, body size, socioeconomic history, ethnicity, & cultural background are all factors that intersect uniquely for each person. As therapists, it is imperative that we work to understand each individual’s experience of the world and how this informs what experiences they bring to therapy. Our practice is dedicated to holding training & other learning opportunities to educate our therapists about issues related to inclusivity. In doing so, our goal is to provide a safe space for all, not just for some.

LEARNING

Learning is a lifelong process. As therapists, it is essential for us to continually engage with learning experiences for us to stay aware and responsive in our ever-changing world. Competence in our work requires ongoing training and exposure to new ideas. We also strive to bring learning experiences to our community through webinars and workshops.

TRANSFORMATION

At its best, psychotherapy helps people to transform into a stronger and more connected version of themselves. But change doesn’t happen through an exchange of words alone. We believe that tending to our emotions in connection with others leads to experiences that foster transformation. We also see a secure therapeutic relationship as a bond that can help to correct the damage done in other relationships. This is why many of our psychotherapists are drawn to experiential and relational approaches to therapy.

Our Therapists

Our therapists utilize an eclectic approach to therapy. We draw on various theoretical models, including Relational, Interpersonal, Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Person-Centered, Strength-Based, Trauma-Focused, and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies. That’s a lot of clinical jargon, but the point is that we tailor our methods to find the tools, strategies, and processes that will be most effective for you.

Finally — and maybe this goes without saying — we are all from various walks of life and work with people from all backgrounds. We offer confidential online therapy sessions. We use HIPAA-compliant, secure systems to connect to you for teletherapy sessions readily.
