Welcome to 

Life Balance Counseling Services

Anyone who struggles with addiction, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, post traumatic stress, or any experience of overwhelming emotion, can relate to a sense of imbalance. Often times the strategies that were once used for coping (avoidance, self-medication, self- harm, isolation, impulsive behavior) create consequences that fuel the issue. At Life Balance, we help you break the cycle by developing strategies to identify and manage emotional distress, and promote health and progress. 

Mood Stability​

Treatment of mood disorders, such as depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. Also providing treatment of co-occurring disorders, I.e. substance abuse with depression, or personality disorders with bipolar disorder. 


Whether there was an isolated experience of a traumatic event or chronic trauma for an extended period of time, working with our brain's threat response can improve daily life. 


An addiction is defined by an inability to stop a behavior despite negative consequences. Whether it’s substance abuse or a repeated activity, breaking addiction is possible. 

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour and some style."

Maya Angelou

“What is joy without sorrow? What is success without failure? What is a win without a loss? What is health without illness? You have to experience each if you are to appreciate the other. There is always going to be suffering. It’s how you look at your suffering, how you deal with it, that will define you.”

Mark Twain

“All the suffering, stress, and addiction comes from not realizing you already are what you are looking for.”
