Kari Holmes, MA


Kari believes as people, we are enriched by the connections we have in our lives. At times, when circumstances intervene, our ability to hold these connections can become impaired and diminish our joy. Using a combination of therapies such as CBT, narrative, Relational Cultural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Kari helps her clients holistically explore their lives in a search for meaning and fulfillment. For those who have lived trauma, Kari can be a trusted partner for clients learning to live alongside instead of within their experience. Kari offers a judgement free space to explore spirituality and growth.

Kari is a doctoral student at the University of St. Thomas, and is currently writing her dissertation on the impact of malnutrition on mental health.

When not at Ellie, you will find Kari adventuring outside exploring all things nature, or doing volunteer work on one of the North Shore’s miles of trails. She loves spending time with friends and family, relishing the time she has to enjoy good food and conversation with them.
