About Me

Hi, I’m Kari Gundersen.

I’m a psychotherapist, a yoga instructor, a contemporary dancer, a beach jogger, and a rescue cat parent. I’ve had the same 12-speed bike since 1984. I’m a creative, visual thinker and sometimes I communicate in pictures.

I grew up in East Vancouver in the 70’s and 80’s. Born to a teenage mother, I was given up for adoption and raised by an established family with three brothers who are 10, 15, and 18 years older than me. I was reunited with my birth-mother at age 25 when I also met my half-brother and half-sister.

I am a divorced, European heritage settler, intersectional feminist, anti-racist, bi/omnisexual, sex trade survivor. I’m not vegan, but I have two vegan meals every day. I’m constantly trying to learn French and Spanish.

The subject I really can’t learn enough about is the central nervous system. My favourite author is Charles Eisenstein, he writes about social evolution. I’m obsessed with RuPaul’s Drag Race. Obsessed.
