Karuna’s therapists are committed to holistic therapeutic approaches that respect and empower our clients. Our goal is to help each client discover and develop her or his own inner resources and capacity for healing and growth.
Karuna is committed to ensuring sensitivity to our clients on issues of cultural, racial, and sexual diversity. All of Karuna’s therapists, regardless of theoretical orientation, share a deep awareness of the personal impact of culture, class, race, gender, physical ability, sexual orientation and spirituality.
As holistic practitioners we work with the entire person, honoring the mind, body, and soul. We use a respectful and collaborative approach and utilize a variety of treatment methods. These may include active listening, humor, writing, reading, role-play, and visualization. At times we may also use body-centered techniques, breathing, movement, yoga, mindfulness, meditation, EMDR (Eye Movement, Desensitization and Reprocessing), and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques).
Karuna Counseling began in 1974 and may well be one of the oldest counseling collectives in the United States. Our initial mission was to provide high quality, compassionate care for women. Over the years we have grown, developed and expanded our focus. We now provide services to men, women, adolescents, families, couples, businesses, and organizations.
Karuna Counseling is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing compassionate and affordable counseling services to the Atlanta area community.
