My name is Kara Grant and I am continuously inspired by the courage and vulnerability I sit across and witness each day when someone walks into my office. I know this is some of the hardest work out there – to journey into awareness, fight for yourself, and foster a connection back to Self.
I am a Trauma and Relational Therapist. A Licensed Professional Counselor, Board Approved Supervisor for LPC-Interns, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, and Certified Daring Way Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown). I have a deep respect for my clients’ journey and believe creativity, nature, relationships, the here and now experience, and stillness are some of the greatest teachers.
I infuse the gifts from Experience into my work to guide my clients to deeper awareness, connection and freedom – this can look like an experiential focus, expressive arts, undertones of psychodynamic, existential, relational-cultural, and system focused approaches, mindfulness, group therapy, movement and Somatic Experiencing.
We are cognitive story tellers, somatic story tellers, relational story tellers, collective story tellers, and creative story tellers. Many wise teachers, including my clients, taught me the different languages of pain, trauma, and healing. Our story is communicated through our words, creative expression, our body and nervous system, our connections and disconnections, and through our relationships.
Holding space for each of these to be acknowledged and known facilitates the healing of trauma so that there is a greater capacity for health, choice and peace.
It would be an honor to walk this journey of healing with you.
