"When I arrived for my personal retreat at Karna's home, I was feeling out of control with my emotions. I felt like I didn't want to do anything, see anyone or even get out of bed most days. I had been living in a state of fear, depression and anxiety. I had lived through many years of rough times that included illness, loss, pain, betrayal and fear. I realized I had been just putting my head down and trudging through every day, year after year, not really feeling or enjoying or living life. Finally I couldn't do it anymore. I wanted to feel joy again. I wanted to trust and forgive and love and get back in touch with the parts of me that I had not been in touch with in many years. I wanted to feel joy and peace and love and humor and beauty and gratitude.
Working with Karna has given me all of these things. Foremost it has given me the ability to feel again. She methodically sorted through the years of emotion: pain, regret, fear, sadness, grief and anger, processing each negative emotion into positive powerful wholeness, restoring calm and peace back into my being, and into my life. Karna Sundby has a gift. Through my work with Karna I have regained myself and my life. I will be eternally grateful for the privilege to have worked with Karna. The work is lasting.... final..... amazing..... and so freeing!
Life evolves, I guess that's why it is called "the rollercoaster of life." Now however, it is comforting to know that there is nothing that life can dish out that I cannot handle with learned tools and access to Karna Sundby as my personal coach, spiritual guide, Kind Soul and NLP Rockstar! To top it all off, the accommodations were stellar, the setting in the foothills of Montana serene! The food was wonderful! ...........5+ star."

"A recent medical diagnosis, potentially life threatening, had left me in a state of mental confusion. Obsessive thoughts, difficulty sleeping, fear of the unknown. It felt like no way out. I booked a flight for a "retreat" with Karna and a week later I was sitting in her comfortable office in Missoula, Montana.
We got right to work by identifying the negative emotions that were beating me up. Karna helped me understand the positive intent behind each of those emotions. Fear can give way to joy, self-doubt to security, and anger to confidence. We used a process to step into the future to imagine where I wanted to be. And we created a physical "anchor" as a tangible reminder of what was possible, a positive emotional state I could feel.
The next day's work was in her home office, a beautiful setting in the woods of Montana. Karna asked questions to find the underlying beliefs that were standing in the way of my emotional and physical healing. She took me through a process to change the negative beliefs to positive ones. That was huge! I learned how to be aware of my emotional state and change it quickly, if needed. Finally, we worked on a manifestation model, a roadmap for drawing into your life whatever you desire. For me it was emotional and physical healing. I knew the emotional healing had to come first. The work I did with Karna was remarkable in that it brought me to a changed state of mind utterly different than the one I began with. I could see, feel and believe the outcome I wanted.
Soon after, circumstances gracefully fell into place. My medical support team quickly coalesced. Answers I was seeking appeared before me, and I knew that was the beginning of my physical healing. I am so grateful to have Karna in my life."

"I had experienced episodes of depression before, but this time nothing was helping and it had been 4 months. I avoided all social contact, was fearful of answering the phone and checking email, and my thoughts were out of control. I resorted to binge watching Netflix or kept my nose in a book to drown out all outside stimuli. My heart was heavy and I pinged between crying for hours and being emotionally numb. Life was unbearable and I was desperate for a change. Then I booked a Transformation Retreat with Karna.
Much of our initial work was through my subconscious, discovering deeply held negative emotions, beliefs and experiences. Karna led me to identify, release and understand the intent and cause of underlying emotions. It was hard work and I fully trusted Karna to guide me. She is a skilled practitioner, loving, intuitive and wholehearted. Her belief in my ability to heal never wavered. By the end of my Retreat I returned to experiencing love, joy, security, peace and confidence. With my newly restored sense of self-worth, Karna and I created a goal, a plan and she gave me tools to move into the future I desired.
My voice is now lighter and brighter. I have a renewed sense of hope and know that I am capable of living a healthy life. I will be forever grateful to Karna for the healing, insight and tools she gave me."

"The work that I did with Karna at her home was honestly life-changing for me. I was so unhappy and living such an unhealthy lifestyle that I felt I needed to move to a new city and start over in a new life. Instead Karna's work helped me change my inner world so that I didn't have to completely change my outer world.
Karna offered me a loving, safe, caring environment for 2 days to do so and is still there whenever I need her. The time I spent with her was intense and enlightening, exhausting and exciting and I'm so grateful for all of it!"

"My childhood was very violent with a raging alcoholic father who abused my mother, my brother and I in every way imaginable. In spite of my childhood, I built a successful business but then was betrayed by people I trusted. When I realized I didn't want to live, I finally looked for help.
I had the privilege of working with Karna, who was excellent in helping me resolve issues related to depression, low self-esteem, and self-limiting negative beliefs. Karna helped me purge deep-rooted problems by helping me understand their roots. Karna has a remarkable combination of empathy, patience, compassion and a high level of skills that has helped me to improve my emotional life and physical health. It was clear to me that, for Karna, our time together was much more than just a job for her and that she deeply cared about helping me.
My childhood was filled with constant agonizing, but now I feel much more hopeful and positive, a tremendous change I never thought possible as I go forward with my life. Karna is truly committed to helping her clients and I highly recommend an intensive with her."
