Who We Are

Michelle Balaban

 MA, MFTC

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. I work with individuals, couples, and families with diverse backgrounds facing a variety of challenges. I have a variety of therapy experience including facilitating traditional therapy sessions, working with children in a school setting and supporting family therapy sessions. I am passionate about providing a safe space for people to share thoughts and feelings about what they are experiencing. I use a variety of approaches to help support and guide you through this process depending on what your needs are. With compassion and empathy, I will objectively support you in your ongoing challenges, anxiety and pain, and help work with you to a more rewarding and enjoyable life.  This is your journey, I am here to facilitate the process and support you as we work towards your goals.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and enjoying the beautiful and Sunny Colorado. I am lucky to say I am a Colorado native, and have lived here for 32 years. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado, and a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Argosy University. I am fluent in Russian. I am married and a mother of two beautiful children. I am very passionate about making a difference in people’s lives, and I absolutely love what I do.

Our Approach

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.

Making the first call can be intimidating. That is why we offer a free consultation over the phone, to help determine if you are ready to make the next step.

We are psychotherapists who provide counseling 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.

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.

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.

We look forward to working with you!
