  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship problems
  • Grief/loss
  • Trauma recovery
  • Developmental and adjustment challenges
  • Major life events
  • Substance recovery
  • Parenting issues

Bringing Balance and Clarity

Often, life slowly tilts out of balance. Counterbalance Counseling & Psychiatry clients seek to regain a sense of balance and clarity in their lives. For example, family relationships may have gradually drifted apart over time, and now the client is confused about how they got to this distant point. 

Other times, individuals can encounter difficult issues that arise more quickly. Clients may face challenges navigating matters at work or recovering from losing a loved one.  

What to Expect in Therapy

A kind, professional relationship with well-trained, intelligent, and caring clinicians. 

At Counterbalance Counseling & Psychiatry, we listen to clients’ thoughts, concerns, perspectives, personal narratives, and goals. We then take a collaborative approach to addressing their therapeutic needs. Our clients feel truly heard, understood, and safe at our office.

Providers at Counterbalance never have the goal of changing a client but rather to help clients reach their version of fulfillment and quality of life. Our role is to join clients on their journey and help guide them, shining a light on others and offering professional advice and insight as needed.
