    Who We Are

    Therapy provides you a place to talk to a professional person, who without judgement gives you a different outside perspective, and the ability to teach you the tools to effectively cope with the problem on your own. We are psychotherapists and psychologists who provide counseling and psychological services in a warm, supportive and compassionate environment. Our services will enhance your mental and emotional wellbeing. We believe that change is possible for all and we are dedicated to helping you and your loved ones find solutions to the issues concerning you.

    Sensitivity and Compassion

     

    Our specialty as therapists is helping clients pinpoint issues and aid you in developing effective strategies and techniques to resolve them. We have been successful at counseling clients to bring about the real and lasting changes they wish to make in their lives. With sensitivity and compassion our clinicians help clients find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and mental health issues. Our counseling style is warm, clear, supportive and full of feedback.

    Mind Balance

     

    We chose the name Mind Balance Counseling, because we believe it is important to find the right balance in your life. We are all so busy, and life is so fast pace, that we often forget to take care of our own mental well-being. Finding the tools, the time and the motivation to balance our life and our mind, can restore peace in our busy daily life.

    What can I expect in a therapy session?

    During sessions you are expected to talk about the primary concerns and issues in your life. A session lasts 50 minutes, but some people request longer sessions. Usually weekly sessions are best. Some people who are in crisis or extreme distress need more than one session per week, at least until the crisis passes. During the time between sessions it is beneficial to think about and process what was discussed. At times, you may be asked to take certain actions outside of the therapy sessions, such as reading a relevant book or keeping records. For therapy to “work,” you must be an active participant, both in and outside of the therapy sessions.
