Holistic Services

Experiencing loneliness in your intimate relationship?

Feeling disconnected to your life partner, your family, or yourself?

Therapy can help.

Using the PLISSIT model, taught to me many years ago by sex therapist Lonnie Barbach, I offer my clients, as needed, a combination of:

PERMISSION, to try new things, to be who they are, to speak their truth

LIMITED INFORMATION, such as how the sexual response cycle works, for example, or how the aging process may affect desire.

SPECIFIC SUGGESTIONS, such as using "I statements" to talk about our feelings in a more effective manner and

INTENSIVE THERAPY, using such techniques as Gestalt empty chair work, or guided relaxation, to delve into family of origin issues.

I offer both BRIEF THERAPY, which usually lasts several sessions or several months, while we focus on one or two particular issues, and also LONG TERM COUNSELING, which may last a year or more, when assistance and support with deeper, ongoing healing is needed.

Call for a brief complimentary telephone consultation to see if we are a good match for working together. If it appears that you need a therapist with a different style, I am a good source of referrals for other professionals in the field.

About Karen

Karen Leah Krulevitch, M.A. is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who has been living in Santa Barbara County since 1972. She has been in the counseling field for over 30 years and has held California M.F.T. licensure since August 1980.

Working out of her rustic cottage offices in an historic part of downtown Santa Barbara on charming Brinkerhoff Avenue, Karen specializes in the issues of healthy sexuality for women and heterosexual and same sex couples. Clients report that they feel safe and relaxed here, and lots of good emotional work gets done. She has many years' experience in helping Adults Molested as Children (A.M.A.C.), as well as the male and female partners of sexual abuse survivors.

In her long career as a mental health professional, Karen has also helped her many clients address such issues as improving communication skills, gaining assertiveness, building self-esteem, and dealing with depression and anxiety, as well as coping with loss and the grieving process. Most recently, Karen has developed a special interest in guiding men and women with chronic illness, especially Rheumatoid Arthritis, to new ways of healing their physical and emotional pain.

Karen's fee is $150 per therapeutic hour (and will accept sliding scale fee for clients in need). She currently accepts Blue Cross insurance, h.m.o and p.p.o. She is an excellent community resource for support/therapy groups, as well as individual psychotherapy and couples' counseling. While many of her clients think of her as their "feelings doctor" and return periodically for ' emotional tune ups', she also offers short-term therapy as well.

Karen's approach is warm and empathetic, yet gently confrontive or directive when needed. Her style is eclectic, having been trained in Gestalt therapy, Rogerian active listening, and client-centered techniques.

Please call Karen Krulevitch for a brief (ten minutes) free-of-charge consultation, and to make an appointment. Some evening and Saturday sessions are available.
