Inkandescent Women magazine celebrates “Women Authors on an Adventure!” Meet our cover girl Kara Kihm

A Note from Hope Katz Gibbs, publisher, Inkandescent Women magazine — I am thrilled to introduce our audience to psychotherapist Kara Kihm, author of “Discovering My Wings.”


Faith guides the way to our healing

For years I have believed that for therapy to be fully effective we must take a mind, body, and spirit approach. For far too long we only focused on the mind and brain chemistry in the therapy world. Then we realized that trauma is stored in the body and we began to learn about trauma informed somatic approaches which has been wonderful for our discipline. And now I deeply believe that without faith we cannot fully come into our healing and wholeness.

I have been through some major losses and traumas in my life and if it weren’t for my faith I don’t think I would have overcome what I have. I went through a very challenging divorce which shook my faith to it’s core. I lost my only sibling in a shocking and sudden way. Then I lost my job and was left with no income. There were months I couldn’t pay my mortgage. In addition to therapy, Faith has been the light that has guided my way into healing during each of these dark times.

Hello, my name is Kara Kihm and I’m a faith based counselor with 18 years experience as a psychotherapist. I specialize in working with Highly Sensitive People and I have a special place in my heart for highly sensitive women, empaths and intuitives because I am all of those.

I work with people who are anxious, exhausted, burned out from life and are functioning off of adrenaline and cortisol to make it through the day. I provide nervous system regulation to help you find balance in your life, in your body, and with your emotions through a faith centered approach.

If you think you may be a Highly Sensitive Person and have a fried nervous system, take my QUIZ HERE to learn more.

I will help you:

  • Feel safe in the world through connecting with your faith
  • Learn to trust that God is always leading you even in the darkest of times
  • Feel centered and grounded in your life
  • Create a healthy relationship with your sensitivities
  • Listen to your inner wisdom and intuition which is the voice of God speaking through you.

I use an integrative approach focusing on the mind, body, and spirit. In my session, I incorporate prayer, DBT, somatic healing, meditative practices, breathing techniques, imagery, astrology and a practice called Mana Gardening.

When I learned work with my sensitivities, began to honor them, and found my faith as the pillar of my life, everything transformed. I believe that our intuition is how God communicates with us and I’ve written about my journey to finding my intuition, in my book Discovering My Wings. I hope it brings inspiration to your journey.
