More about Dr. Karjala

Dr. Karjala is known for her model of the “critical voice,” a near-universal inner protective “part” that hinders growth and development.

As well, she uses and teaches both conventional and innovative treatment modalities, and advocates combining the two as an efficient and effective treatment approach to major trauma as well as “everyday” traumas.

Dr. Karjala held the office of President of the Association for Energy Psychology (ACEP) and served on its board of directors for 13 years. She headed ACEP's training and certification committee for the Comprehensive Energy Psychology clinician training program, and she was instrumental in program development and delivery. Numerous clinicians mentored under her to obtain their certification.
