Balanced Life Counseling & Consulting (BLCC) is a private practice group of independent and pre-licensed therapists serving clients in the states of Missouri, Illinois, Colorado and New Mexico (not all clinicians are able to see clients in multiple states). It is our priority to create a therapeutic atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change for you.  We look forward to working with you to address any challenges and realize your goals.  Counseling, therapy and life coaching are processes that can help you to experience the healthiest version of yourself living the life you desire.

We also specialize in providing Helping & Wellness Professionals and Care Providers (Social Workers, Nurses, Counselors, Teachers, First Responders, Parents, etc) a safe space to be vulnerable, address life’s issues and improve self-care.

Treatment Approach

field path

We use a variety of approaches to address our clients unique needs. Many successful approaches will utilize a foundation of Cognitive-Behavioral therapy, then quickly move toward a tailored approach that includes tools and toys to help sustain growth and healing; including Acceptance & Commitment Therapy,  EMDR, Family Systems Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Trauma-Informed Yoga Therapy, Vibrational Sound Therapy and other evidenced-based treatments.

Additionally, there is an established body of research that supports the practice of somatic-based exercises, self-compassion, mindfulness and meditation in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice these techniques (stimulation of the Vagus Nerve) are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is our honor and mission to help our clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
