Professional statement

Kara Kihm is an embodiment therapist and practices holistic therapy and energy work virtually in the state of North Carolina. Kara specializes in working with highly sensitive people, empaths and intuitivities helping them navigate the challenges that come with being sensitive in such a stimulating world. She focuses on nervous system regulation for women who are anxious, exhausted, experiencing burnout and are functioning off of adrenaline and cortisol to make it through the day. She helps her clients find balance in their life, their body, and with their emotions.

Her credentials as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Reiki Master (RMT) and author allow her to use an integrative approach focusing on the mind, body, and spirit. In her practice she uses Somatic work as well as meditative practices, breathing techniques, imagery work and a practice called Mana Gardening. She believes that Reiki/energy work is incredibly beneficial in the healing process and she integrates therapy with energy work during sessions.

Kara has written a book, Discovering My Wings, which depicts how her life radically transformed when she discovered that she is a highly sensitive person and began to live a life in alignment with her soul. She hopes her story can be an inspiration to you.

Message to clients

HSPs/Empaths Heroines Journey

Are you anxious and depleted by life?

Are you ready to thrive instead of just survive?

Do you feel constantly stressed as though you are on the hamster wheel and consumed by the grind of life?

Do you experience frequent emotional overwhelm?

Then this course may be for you.....

Believe me I've lived that life and I refuse to ever go back.

For the majority of my life I thought something was wrong with me and it wasn’t until I learned that I’m an HSP, an empath and intuitive that I started to discover the unique needs of my nervous system. Yes it’s true, being sensitive, can be challenging in this over stimulating world, but we can also make magic.

This program is based on the 8 sections of my book, Discovering My Wings. During this 8-week course we will build a nourishing life that supports your nervous system, access the voice of your intuition, step into your power, and embark on your own Heroine's journey as an HSP.

In this Program, we will take a deep dive into:

Week 1  The Heroine's Journey

Week 2   The Obstacle IS The Way

Week 3   FEAR

Week 4  Mindfulness

Week 5  Intuition

Week 6  Consciously Co-creating Our Life

Week 7  Self Compassion

Week 8  Trust

Investment is 2,222.00 and includes, 8 one-on-one 1 hour sessions, a copy of my book, weekly resources and a one hour astrology reading with Laura Tadd, a psychological astrologer. Payment plans are available.

Highly Sensitive People - Is the world overstimulating? Do you often feel misunderstood? Do you have a rich complex inner world? Are you sensitive to lights, noise, fabrics, and chaos? If these questions resonate then you might be an HSP. Your sensitivity is actually your super power but it requires consistent nervous system regulation. Reach out for a free consult

Mystics, Empaths, Intuitives - Let's dive into the unique and very special gifts that come with being sensitive to energy and having spiritual experiences in the modern day world. Somehow we have not embraced mysticism as our culture has evolved, but mystics and empaths have been around since the beginning of time. We were the medicine women, the priestesses, the witches and the healers of the village. AND we are still around and powerful. Lean to hone your spiritual gifts and navigate challenges in the human world
