Today we’d like to introduce you to Alyssa Webb-McCune.
Hi Alyssa, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
After the pandemic, I was in a place that I feel many people find themselves at some point in their life, struggling to maintain a career you have worked hard for, trying to connect with your children, maintain a positive marriage and then still feel fulfilled on a personal level. I knew something had to change in order to achieve the life I had to believe was possible for me and my family. So in the early summer of 2021, I made the leap in starting my own practice, Natural Balance Counseling, with the idea that I wanted to create something different than I saw around me. What that has led to now is a private mental health practice that is seeing substantial growth in just one year. We focus on helping professional individuals and couples be able to live and thrive in their life, truly being fulfilled in all four areas that I was struggling to maintain just a little over a year ago.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
There has been a lot of ups and downs! The fear of taking a big risk and losing out on a secure paycheck was terrifying as well as managing my own struggles with mental health, continuing on in my education for my doctorate, and being a present wife and mom in my family have been the main struggles. I have absolutely loved the support from my family and friends as they have stood by me each step of the way and reminded me what the potential was if I continued in this journey. Having a strong support system made all the difference.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
At Natural Balance Counseling, we provide personalized mental health counseling treatment for adults, both individually and as a relationship unit. Our counselors are highly trained to support clients through a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, navigating difficult life situations and many others.
Each of our clinicians have different subspecialties that set them apart. For myself, I specialize in working with sexual and relational concerns for both individuals and couples. Sex is something that is not often talked about in society today positively and openly and I really enjoy being able to help my clients overcome their fears, difficulties and struggles related to sex and relationships.
We pride ourselves in being inclusive to all beliefs and ways of life and supporting our clients in identifying what thriving looks like for them.
We are different because we cater to the professional adult, from the minute you walk into our waiting room to the moment you leave. You are treated with the utmost respect and care as we are truly honored you would choose us to support you during this time in your life.
What are your plans for the future?
We have big plans! As we continue to grow as a business, we are hoping to expand our location to provide a wider range of specialties within our clinicians and provide a high-end, luxury mental health service to our community. We will also be increasing our publications and material written by our clinicians to serve the community even outside of the counseling room.
Personally, I am working on my Doctorate in Professional Counseling with a focus in Sex Therapy which will allow me to provide an even higher quality of care to my clients. Sex therapy is something I am truly passionate and I look forward to serving our community further!
