About Me

& Creative Choice


Hi I'm Karla.

For as long as I can remember I have held a passion for health and wellness. After immersing and educating myself in the fields of yoga and holistic health, I wanted to share my understandings of different integrative approaches towards achieving life’s goals.


Having achieved a Masters in Holistic Counseling and being a certified yoga instructor for over 10 years, I believe I have the experience and mindset to work with individuals in discovering their optimal potential. 

I am also a wife, mother and friend to those who share kindness.

I currently reside in beautiful Aquidneck Island in RI.

Creative Choice Counseling was created to offer individuals choices in health and healing beyond talk therapy. Specializing in psychotherapy techniques, I am committed to empowering you to live a better and healthier life through a personalized program.  Have freedom to choose fun and insightful ways to achieve your goals!

Service Options

Holistic Counseling - Life Guidance

Connecting with each other, we will establish healthy strategies and coping mechanisms for optimal wellbeing that can be applied to various areas of life.


With an emphasis on communication psychotherapies, holistic counseling can leave you feeling supported and that you are moving forward in the right direction.

Walk-Talk  & Nature Based Counseling

Sometimes a little fresh air can do the body (and brain) some good. Consider a change of environment when wanting to share some thoughts. Many find being in nature brings relaxing and meditative qualities.


Research has shown that exercise can decrease anxiety and stress while increasing overall mood. A public park, your neighborhood, the beach, outdoor possibilities are endless! Please contact me for more and how we can personalize this experience in a safe and fun way. 

Expressive & Creative Arts

Go beyond talk therapy with exercises and activities that stimulate your brain. Using a range of artistic tools and styles, we can explore simple or complex issues while honoring your creative side and have a little fun while doing so!


Artistic expression can help improve cognitive and sensory motor function, self-esteem, awareness and much more. With as little as some paper and crayons (one example) you can achieve healthy personal goals and growth.

Yoga, Visual Imagery & Meditation

Honor the body and the rest will follow. Join me as I guide you through somatic movements and relaxation techniques to leave you feeling invigorated, refreshed and clear headed. 


 A session may involve breathwork, focused areas of discomfort, vigorous movement or deeply restful positions. 

Group Guidance/Mentorship

Career Counseling

If you ever find yourself unhappy with your current career or work choice, having a specified talk on career counseling may be right for you. It can often be a struggle to maintain a work-life balance, or finding purpose and meaning in what we do.


Let's work together to create solutions and get ahead on the right path for you.

"The secret of change is not to fight the old but to build the new" -Socrates. 


With my experience of working in public schools, teaching yoga and running after-school clubs, I can help be a valuable resource and leader for collectively moving a group forward towards achieving goals. 

Ethics, morals and values are standards that I strive to adhere to when working collaboratively. Please contact me for information to see if I may be the right fit for group guidance.
