About Me


Hello. My name is Jofannie Karla. I am a Psychologist and Mental Health Counselor and I reside in Arizona.
I have been happily married for 38 years and I am a proud mother and grandmother. I consider myself to be a world traveler and avid gardener.

With over 30+ years of experience as a marriage, family and couples therapist, and as a graduate of the University of Massachusetts (Amherst) specializing in Clinical Psychology, I have worked with a broad spectrum of clients. People come to me with a variety of issues including past abuse, relationship difficulties, unbeneficial emotional patterns, depression, anxiety and more.

I have not only counseled people in my private practice and mental health clinics, but my husband and I spent many years working as management  consultants for Fortune 100 companies presenting programs and seminars on Team Building, Negotiation Skills, Management and Supervisory Development, Stress Management and Conflict Resolution.

Recently, I decided to retire from retirement and use my extensive experience, background and skills as a couples therapist to assist committed couples BEFORE they marry. So many people have told me they wished they had learned the skills and had the tools for healthy communication and conflict resolution prior to marriage. I have a passionate commitment to helping couples deal with issues of communication, sexual compatibility, financial responsibility, frustrations, resentments, children, dealing with parents, attraction to others and much more.
