Let us know how we can help.

Child Therapy

 “Child-driven, hands-on play is the foundation of creativity, constructive problem solving, and the capacity to self-regulate”

 - Susan Linn 

Play is the child’s language. Using the healing power of therapeutic play, the child leads the way to healthier development, relationships, and improved social-emotional skills. Therapists at A Balanced Life LLC engage with your child using proven therapy approaches to help them improve self-control, self-regulation, self-expression, identity, and sense of competency. 

Couple Therapy

Where all of your feelings are welcome.

Partners who are committed in life sometimes struggle to find the balance in their relationship. When this happens, couple therapy can help partners reconnect and find new ways to be heard and understood. Couple therapy can help to restore the closeness crucial to experiencing fulfillment and health in your relationship. A Balanced Life LLC offers Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples.

EMDR Therapy

"Have the life you want by being present to the life you have." 
- Mark Nepo

A Balanced Life LLC utilizes Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to help you to integrate the complexity of your experiences so that you can heal, restore hope, and feel confident about living the life you've always wanted. This evidenced-based therapy is useful for a wide variety of problems, including acute stress, adjustment problems, anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, sexual dysfunction, and trauma.

Family Therapy

“The way you help heal the world is you start with your own family.” 

- Mother Teresa

The goal of family therapy is to restore appropriate control back to the child and parenting control back to you. At A Balanced Life LLC, we approach family therapy through a relational lens. Family therapy focuses on re-establishing enjoyment in your relationship with your child/ren. This crucial step sets the foundation for confident parenting to improve cooperation and connection.

Individual Therapy for Adults and Adolescents

“It is important for people to know that no matter what lies in their past, they can overcome the dark side and press on to a brighter world.” 

- Dave Pelzer

You deserve the best life possible. Whether you are seeking help to resolve issues from the past or to help with current challenges, we can help you achieve relief,  lasting change, and confidence. Although you are facing challenges in your life right now that may feel burdensome, overwhelming, or distressing, you can grow and thrive. Together, we develop the therapy plan that meets your specific needs.

Maternal Mental Health

“Reaching out for assistance is the first step toward her goal of being herself once again.”
- Jane I. Honikman, M.S.

If you are feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, like you are failing and will never be the same, you are not alone. Nearly 25% of women who are pregnant or who have recently had a baby suffer from depression, anxiety, or another treatable mental illness. At A Balanced Life LLC, we hear and understand your challenges and your needs and work together collaboratively to find ways to heal that work for you.
