I see my work as an art of transformation.

We take what hurts and find ways of being

with it, organically and gently. As we draw out the wisdom of your body and mind, healing, integration, clarity and other gifts emerge. Your path forward is being revealed.

We also build on innate and somatic resources,

to help you stay strong, open, and resilient during difficult times.

I have known Brigitta Karelis for over 25 years, first as a student, then as a colleague and fellow trainer for the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute.  Brigitta brings tremendous integrity, dedication, expertise and talent to her work as a clinician and trainer.  What makes her special as a therapist is not only her innate kindness and capacity to truly connect with her clients, but also her ability to draw upon the intelligence of the body and its movement to facilitate awareness and growth.  Brigitta’s passion for both Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and mindfulness meditation result in a clinical approach and a set of skills that are unique and deeply healing for her clients. 


Founding Trainer and Senior Faculty of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy

I have known Brigitta for 20 years as Buddhist mindfulness instructor, psychotherapist, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Trainer. She shines in all these roles because of her own mindfulness practice. She has expertise in trauma, developmental/ attachment injuries, and spiritual crises. I highly recommend her as a therapist.

Brigitta Karelis is a rare soul. As a therapist, she embodies gentleness, presence, and a great capacity for holding pain with a true heart-understanding of inner conflicts and struggles. I have witnessed her work in trainings and teachings, and I have marveled at the natural unfolding of the clients’ own healing powers under Brigitta’s guidance, a journey that feels almost magical. Her work is also nurtured with delight, a rare quality in these modern times, but so necessary to be closer to our core selves.
