Holistic Counselor and Somatic Psychotherapist

What's it like to work with me?

I take a whole person approach-mind, body, emotions, behavior, and experiences are taken into consideration.

I’m Kaijah Bjorklund, a seasoned therapist committed to guiding you on a healing journey. With extensive training, skills, and expertise, I’m your dedicated partner every step of the way. It’s important that you understand what to expect when working with me.

If you’re seeking empowerment, support, and authenticity in your path to self-discovery, then we’re an ideal match. I believe in nurturing your inner wisdom, fostering honesty, and helping you become your true self. However, if you’re looking for a therapist to dictate your life or provide one-size-fits-all solutions, I may not be the right fit.

Together, we’ll delve into deep healing work encompassing your body, mind, behavior, and emotions, creating profound and lasting change. I bring my genuine self to our sessions – approachable, empathetic, honest, and grounded. I want you to feel secure in revealing your authentic self, knowing I’m here to support you every step of the way.

I show up as my genuine self. I’m approachable, empathetic, honest, grounded, and present with you. I want you to feel safe to show me who you really are. I’m not easily shaken or shocked. I’ve heard it all, and I can help you hold it. We may laugh together, cry together, or share our real felt experiences in the moment. All our work together supports you in deepening into the healing process. 

On a Personal Note

My family and loved ones are my top priority. Through my own journey, I’ve discovered the importance of self-care to be present for others. Regular support from mentors and counseling is part of my wellness routine, ensuring I bring my best to our work together. Outside of therapy, I find grounding in activities I love, like spending time outdoors, tending to gardens, and connecting with the wisdom of nature.

In our sessions, you may meet my therapy dog, Arlo, who often joins our virtual meetings and adds a touch of joy and comfort to our work together. He’s a source of endless joy and fun and we share many adventures together.

Background & Education

My academic journey began with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology from Northern Arizona University, where my passion for psychology ignited. From a young age, I aspired to work in wilderness therapy, a dream I realized after graduating. I embarked on a fulfilling career as an Outward-Bound wilderness instructor and counselor, dedicating three years to guiding adjudicated youth and their families toward healing and growth.

Seeking to expand my holistic health knowledge, I enrolled at The Heartwood Institute, where I studied massage and holistic health. This led to the establishment of my private practice as a Holistic Health Practitioner and Bodyworker, where I gained invaluable experience in supporting individuals in the healing process. My dedication to understanding the intricate workings of the nervous system led me to extensive training.

Driven by a desire to deepen my ability to support people in their healing process, I pursued a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health from Prescott College. During my graduate studies, I focused on a mind-body approach rooted in neuroscience, incorporating modalities such as Hakomi, Gestalt, and EMDR. My master’s thesis centered on complex trauma and PTSD, reflecting my commitment to helping individuals overcome these challenges.

My educational journey is an ongoing one, as I believe in continually learning and growing. With this rich background, I am dedicated to supporting you on your path to transformation and well-being.
