Kari Lyn has been advocating for healing and well being for over 30 years. She is an experienced Therapist and Life Coach and has worked for many years in both secular and spiritual settings. She loves to see her clients release ties that have kept them stuck or in pain; this is why she does this work. Clients say she is easy to talk to and authentic, compassionate yet challenging. She believes that life is a journey and along our path we have opportunities for growth or stagnation, wholeheartedly believing growth is what makes the journey worthwhile . She helps her clients to feel accepted and supported as they gain insight and tools so they can move on to live a life that excites them. When she's not working or learning, Kari Lyn's favorite thing to do is laugh, not sure how people get through life without it. She also enjoys traveling, yoga, meditation, singing, nature and being with members of my tribe (close friends and family). Her favorite thing of all is spending time with mher two beautiful girls, Lucy and Georgia.
Kari Lyn loves to encourage others toward a path of wellness and discovery
and she would love to work with you.
I have worked with other therapists in the past. What they had to offer me was helpful, but when I worked with Kari Lyn, I could tell she really cared about my wellbeing. She really wanted to see me get better and move beyond my pain. Former Client of Kari Lyn
"Kari Lyn takes an approach that gets to the heart of the situation and provides direction toward real solutions. She keeps goals front and center and maintains attention on those goals. She is a highly skilled professional who brings her heart and spirit to her work." Former Client of Kari Lyn
I have had the privilege of working with Kari Lyn as a colleague in ministry for twenty plus years. I have witnessed first-hand her ability to connect with youth and adults in ways very few people can. She combines solid theological witness with wise compassionate advice in down to earth ways that allow for entry points for all people. Each year we contract with Kari Lyn as a speaker for a parent night and each time we do parents ask for more. We have also worked with her in a counseling capacity and have been truly blessed by her healing gift of wisdom. Any organization that is blessed enough to work with Kari Lyn will richly benefit from her gifts." Mike Carlson, Senior Pastor at St. Andrews Lutheran Church Mahtomedi, MN
"Kari Lyn is an excellent speaker, presenter and counselor. We have had Kari present on difficult topics with our youth and she has done great work. Our kids and parents were both highly engaged. The interactive presentation was excellent. Kari has also worked independently with youth and adults alike providing important, high quality mental/emotional health care. Kari is a wonderful warm faithful care provider."
Scott Searl, Senior Pastor at Shepard of the Hills Lutheran Church

I highly recommend her to your group." Cindy Wiste, Children Youth and Family Ministry Director at Trinity Lutheran Church "One of the most heart-felt, life filled people I know!" Lyle Griner, National Peer Ministry Director
“We really liked how Kari Lyn learned and listened to the group to see where we were at in our knowledge of single parent families by making the fact finding an interactive discussion. Once we had a chance to share she was masterful at meeting the groups needs. Then helping us better understand how to be supportive to the single parents needs."
