Welcome to Caring Life Counseling in Bloomington, MN

Counseling Bloomington MNThank you so much for considering counseling with CaringLifeCounseling.

My intention as a counselor is to help you face the challenges laid before you in such a way that brings you closer to your authentic self while increasing your awareness, resilience, and confidence. With a stronger sense of self, I’m confident you can sail even the most turbulent of life’s waters without losing your way. I hope you will join me, your first 50 min. session is free so that you can make sure I’m the right person for your needs.

My approach as a mental health counselor/therapist is influenced by my Western Humanistic Psychology orientation and Eastern/Buddhist philosophy, both of which emphasize mindfulness and a belief that the client is the expert on his/her life.

Life Transitions: Are you experiencing distress due to major life changes? You may be facing feelings of grief and loss when faced with a terminal illness, divorce, job loss, nearing end-of-life, or coping after the loss of a loved one.

I can help you take care of yourself and maintain a healthy, respectful relationship as your parent ages and becomes more dependent on you or other care providers. I also provide in-home counseling for seniors.
