The purpose of my work is to educate families, schools, and churches. These are the three systems I focus on to help navigate shame free discussions around sex. I find that these three systems affect how we learn and feel about our sexuality the most. I have been working with youth forever as a camp counselor, youth minister, foster care licensor, and more but since formally trained in sex education the end of 2014.
I would love to help the community know more about bringing sex into religious institutions and how I navigate that space as well as just share things that have been successful for me in my teaching. Something unique too that I do is that families hire me into their homes to teach their kids and when we are done we all have a meal together. Many families I have worked with appreciate this a lot.
Reframing Our Stories
Kara has always asked the big questions – looking for connections to our world and the way people interact. Through her experiences in human services, working with youth and in ministry, she quickly recognized most of her time was spent helping people reframe stories they’ve told themselves about sex and relationships.
In 2015, Kara created Grace Unbound, a resource for teaching comprehensive sexual health without the shame or guilt, but with excitement, engagement, compassion, and the invitation to be vulnerable. Reframing our Stories launched in 2020 and through these companies, Kara has worked in homes, with schools, churches, and community groups domestically and abroad speaking on various topics of sexuality.
She has her BA in Psychology from Hope College in Holland, MI., a Masters in Theological Studies from Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, CA, Post-Graduate Certificate in Sexual Health Education and Counseling from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and is a Certified Sexuality Educator. Kara lives in California with her husband and her two children.
