    What We're All About

    Back to Balance Counseling is a values-based practice that is committed to providing superior service to our clients.

    As a practice, we value integrity, courage, respect, and transparency because we believe that these qualities are essential for successful relationships.

    We really like to have fun with our clients, too. At the end of the day, you gotta like your therapist!

    You’re not going to hear a bunch of clinical jargon or a constant loop of “so how does that make you feel?” when you work with us. We want our clients to eventually become their own therapists!

    We’re committed to providing a space for our clients that not only supports comfort but one that also promotes growth and clarity.  We currently specialize in working with adults and teens with various anxiety disorders, relationship distress, body image issues, depression, issues related to life transitions, and perinatal mental health.

    “I promise we won’t sit there in silence and stare at you!”  ~Megan Cannon, Owner

    A calming and truly caring demeanor is inherently part of Kathy. She's a natural empathic listener, and she's great at fostering a sense of hope with her adult and teen clients. Kathy is highly skilled at working with parents of children with ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Her extensive knowledge and training in Mindfulness is very useful when working with highly anxious individuals and teens.

    This woman keeps us all in line by maintaining such a clean environment. Mom Mary's attention to detail provides the clinicians with a clutter free workspace, and it provides our clients with a comfortable environment that promotes healing. We are so grateful for her because she does all the things that we're too tired to do at the end of the day.
