About Johanna Karasik
Does it seem like you’re worried, sad, or anxious more days than not lately? Your thoughts keep you up at night, or you feel nervous energy. You feel disconnected from yourself or others. You just want to feel happy again - or at least not so lonely, sad, anxious, or irritated.
Perhaps you replay situations over and over in your head. Or worry - about yourself, a loved one, a difficult boss or toxic co-worker, or “the state of the world.”
Maybe you’re unfulfilled or burned out at work. You’re wondering if there’s a more meaningful career for you and/or how to manage a job you hate in the meantime.
You carry stress with family, work, & other responsibilities and want to cope in healthier ways.
You want relief, hope, connection, joy. You’re ready for change. You’re wondering what’s next. I can help.
I will listen, hold your stories, collaborate with you in defining your path, and support you along the way. Our work together may include space to process and experience catharsis, building stress management and coping skills, capitalizing on your strengths and interests, developing additional healthy habits, healing pain and traumas, determining specific goals, exploring values and passions, and considering new ideas. I will collaborate with you to understand your struggles, challenges, strengths, and values to help you make the positive changes in your life that you desire.
I am honored to work with a diverse client caseload and welcome clients of all identities including genders, races, ethnicities, sexual or romantic orientations, and religions.
Finding the right therapist is important. Check out definingpathcounseling.com for more information including fees, and contact me for a free confidential phone consultation to see if we would be a good match. I look forward to speaking with you!
