Being able to connect with your therapist is a crucial component in your success. Please check out this video so you can get a feel for my personality and decide if you think we would be a good fit. Of course I included bloopers, because that's authenticity at its finest!

Counseling for women and teens who are convinced they’re not good enough.

You’ve been trying really hard to keep it together, BUT, there is this belief that others are doing these things better than you, more often than you, and getting better results than you.  On social media, it looks like others have it all. They have the big house filled with a few kids and the loving spouse. It looks like they go out every weekend, and vacation twice a year. You question where you went wrong and ask why life is so easy for others.  You know you should STOP scrolling, but you just KEEP going.

You probably hate the way things are right now.  Anxiety and low self-esteem keep getting in the way of you enjoying your life.  Frustrations such as FOMO (fear of missing out), less than perfect self-esteem, difficulty making decisions, constant worrying, and strained relationships leave you feeling less than your best.  You look around and begin to feel like you're missing out on things.

Maybe you’ve considered therapy before, but thought it might be too much of a change.


It’s time to make that change, and move away from FOMO and move toward JOMO (joy of missing out)! Reach out for a free consultation and let’s get to know each other.

If you read this and thought….that doesn’t really describe me, but you think we would be a good fit, please reach out! I appreciate any contact from those who are motivated to make improvements in their lives.


Back to Balance Counseling, LLC specializes in the treatment of anxiety disorders, stress management, self-esteem, and life transitions. People seek counseling for an array of reasons. Due to life's circumstances, people can suffer from feelings of stress, anxiety, loss, sadness, or inadequacy. Others may decide counseling can help them with their journey toward self-discovery.

It seems like everyone has anxiety these days, right? The term is used so loosely that I'm finding many people are self-diagnosing themselves with an anxiety disorder. While many of us do lead busy lives filled with deadlines, meetings, and expectations, that does not mean that all busy people experience anxiety. I spend most of my time with clients determining the cause of their anxious feelings. Once we can figure that out, we are able to work on the real issues and make great progress.

Our thoughts dictate our feelings, our feelings dictate our behavior, and our behavior reinforces our thoughts. I frequently find that we get caught up in faulty thinking patterns that do not do us any favors. This happens throughout the course of the day, and for the most part, we are unaware of this thought trap.

If life isn’t going right, and you’re ready to make some changes so you can stop hating yourself, let’s get to know each other and figure out how I can help.

I’m glad that you’ve made it this far during your search for a counselor.  You’ve probably seen dozens of options in the results of your search, and you already want to quit the process.  I get it!  That’s why I’ve written my page in a way that will help you determine if you think we’ll be a good fit.  I work best with motivated individuals who are ready to take initiative to change things that aren’t working.  The clients who I’ve seen have the most success are committed to the process and realize that I do not have a magic wand to make problems disappear.  This collaborative approach helps us to be honest with each other and get the work done.
