Welcome to Becoming Balanced, LLC, a transformative space where we embark on a journey of holistic well-being. Founded with a passion for fostering balance in the midst of life’s challenges, our practice is a sanctuary for individuals and couples seeking mental health and educational support.

Our practice was born out of a profound understanding of life’s complexities, rooted in the experiences of a single mother who navigated various systems while facing the inherent struggles of life. At Becoming Balanced, we believe that prioritizing mental health is essential for navigating life’s hurdles successfully.

Our founder, a dedicated and relatable practitioner with a Juris Doctorate degree and a mastery of diverse therapeutic modalities, brings a unique blend of legal acumen and therapeutic expertise to guide individuals and couples through their transformative journeys. Specializing in anxiety, depression, work stress, identity crises, and more, our approach is rooted in advocacy, equality, and relatability.

We provide a spectrum of services, including individual and couples therapy, civil mediation services, and consultation. Our therapeutic methods draw from various modalities such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and wellness therapy. For couples, we employ the research-based Gottman Method to enhance intimacy, respect, and affection.

What sets us apart is our commitment to cultural competence and trauma-informed care. Serving a diverse population ranging from below the poverty line to working and upper-middle-class individuals, we recognize the importance of providing accessible and relevant services. Our podcast, “The Balance,” further amplifies our mission, discussing how to navigate the ebb and flow of life.

Becoming Balanced, LLC is not just a practice; it’s a community hub where individuals of all backgrounds find a safe, judgment-free space to embark on their wellness journey. Whether in-person or virtually, our goal is to meet you where you are and empower you to take that first step towards creating the future you desire.
