Meredith Van Ness, LCSw

Balanced + Well Counseling & Coaching

I am a liscenced psychotherapist with expertise in mood disorders, anxiety, self-esteem and life adjustments and transitions. My 15 years of clinical experience will help you find balance, design your life and restore wellness. 

My emphasis in behavioral therapies allows for change facilitated though the therapeutic process. I believe in creating an environment that is safe, caring, calm and empowering. In this way, you can let go of what is not working and invite in new ways of thinking and being.

With my deep compassion and clarity, my counseling and coaching becomes a catalyst for positive change through self-awareness, acceptance, healing and personal growth.

I am also a behavioral sleep therapist and a sleep science coach. I am able to use several proven modalities and evidence based interventions to help with sleep from infancy through adulthood.  

Beyond my work counseling and coaching in a private practice I have worked in the school system, in youth-focused non-profits, community mental health centers and employee assistance programs.  All of these experiences have helped me to see what modalities are tried and true.

My latest calling was getting certified as a life and wellness coach.  I found a lot of my therapeutic practices focused on goal setting and making behavioral changes, which serve as an ideal platform in wellness coaching.

Expertise in both coaching and more traditional therapies allows you to benefit from an array of integrative techniques and applications. 

I believe living our best lives are always a works in progress. Finding balance at home, at work and play is something that needs to be fine tuned. Coaching and Counseling are both ideal platforms for this learning.

In my free time I love mountain biking, trail running, skiing, yoga and spending time with my husband and 3 boys.
