Who are we?

The Balanced Living Center is a place that nurtures all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect. We’re not just a counseling practice, or just a wellness center. We are a team of people just like you—people with a lot on our minds and a desire to lead lives that bring us joy, through practice and purpose. Our journey through life is a shared one, and we’re here to remind you that you’re not alone. 

 

Why us?

The Balanced Living Center is for people who need a reminder that wellness begins with you. We don’t hide in the shadows. We live in the messy middle—that place where all aspects of life intersect. Our method centers on the self. Our advice is practical. Our programs support the idea that in order to give to others, you’ve got to give to yourself first. Our clients love that we’re a refreshing take on health and wellness. We’re not stuffy, clinical or new-agey. We are the people who know what you’re going through and have the expertise and experience to help you get through it.
