    Are you and your spouse struggling with communication issues? Is your marriage giving you a lot of heartaches instead of love and comfort? Or perhaps you even think that your marriage is quickly moving toward a separation? Marriage is not easy. It’s hard work and becomes more challenging and a source of distress when you feel disconnected from your partner. You feel alone, confused, stuck, rejected, angry, frustrated, and hopeless.

    Kartika’s education, training, experience, skills, and personality have allowed her to understand the dynamics between partners. She uses the Emotionally Focused Therapy model to work with clients. Together, she and her clients identify the negative cycle that makes them feel stuck. Kartika will help her clients create a safe space to build an intimate, emotional connection, where they can provide comfort to each other and meet emotional needs.

    Kartika is originally from Indonesia and has been happily married to her husband for more than 27 years. She and her husband have three children (including one in heaven) and a sweet Goldendoodle. Kartika is actively involved with her parish, the Indonesian Catholic Community, and Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat.

    Kartika received a master’s degree in Pastoral Theology from Madonna Catholic University and a master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Dallas Baptist University. She is trained extensively in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy and Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy. Kartika is continuing to pursue training in EFT and is pursuing certification as a Sexual Addiction Therapy Provider.
