Meet Karolina. (pronounced: Carol-EE-nah) (so exotic!)
Karolina was born in Lithuania (yeah, we know – whoa!) and moved to the United States with her family when she was seven years old. She still speaks Lithuanian fluently every day (need a Lithuanian counselor?). She was raised in Grand Rapids, MI and then moved to Kalamazoo to pursue her undergraduate degree in Family Studies and Psychology and then her Masters degree in Counseling.
Karolina specializes in women’s issues and is so passionate to work with women who are struggling with balance, transitions, work stress, self-worth and relationships. She believes that difficult family systems and past trauma can make our thoughts a little cloudy while navigating through relationships with yourself and others. Together, you will explore your journey into self-discovery and rebuilding your relationship with yourself and others. Karolina also very much enjoys working with kids and families. With her love of Holistic Health (think whole-person health), she fits right in here at Lifeologie! She works with each client to make sure that she considers the entire person, including their strengths, what they love, and how they want to work, to develop a very person-centered treatment.
When you meet with Karolina, you’ll know right away that you’ve found the therapist for you. She’s kind and encouraging and will help you grow into the person you most want to be.
When Karolina isn’t nose-deep in learning about wellness, she loves to spend quality time with her significant other, family, and friends. You’ll probably find her playing with her puppy, traveling to exotic places, taking lots of photos, and exploring different coffee shops in the area.
At a time when mental health services are more important than ever, Lifeologie Counseling Grand Rapids is offering remote therapy, remote group and mini-sessions, and free 15 minute sessions for front-line workers.
