I have had the privilege of working with Kari Lyn as a colleague in ministry for twenty plus years.  I have witnessed first-hand her ability to connect with youth and adults in ways very few people can.  She combines solid theological witness with wise compassionate advice in down to earth ways that allow for entry points for all people. Each year we contract with Kari Lyn as a speaker for a parent night and each time we do parents ask for more.  We have also worked with her in a counseling capacity and have been truly blessed by her healing gift of wisdom.  Any organization that is blessed enough to work with Kari Lyn will richly benefit from her gifts."
Mike Carlson, Senior Pastor at St. Andrews Lutheran Church Mahtomedi, MN

​I have worked with other therapists in the past. What they had to offer me was helpful, but when I worked with Kari Lyn, I could tell she really cared about my wellbeing. She really wanted to see me get better and move beyond my pain.

"Kari Lyn is an excellent speaker, presenter and counselor. We have had Kari present on difficult topics with our youth and she has done great work. Our kids and parents were both highly engaged. The interactive presentation was excellent. Kari has also worked independently with youth and adults alike providing important, high quality mental/emotional health care. Kari is a wonderful warm faithful care provider."

We really liked how Kari Lyn  learned and listened to the group to see where we were at in our knowledge of single parent families by making the fact finding an interactive discussion. Once we had a chance to share she was masterful at meeting the groups needs. Then helping us better understand how to be supportive to  the single parents  needs."
