My counselor at Urban Balance has given me strength and kindness whenever I need it. She is the best therapist I have had in years, and I am so blessed to have her in my life.
Our family therapist is someone that you cannot help but genuinely like and, more importantly, his creative techniques and methods yield amazing results.
My therapist has been so easy to talk to and share things with no matter what I've been through or am going through. I feel a strong trust and friendship with her, which I don't find very easily. Thank you Urban Balance.
He really focused on getting to know the family and the dynamics of my son. Personable and easy to talk to. Thank you all.
Urban Balance has provided insight to both my wife and me that has been invaluable to our individual and mutual recoveries. Thank you all so much!
This was my first time talking to a Therapist for a major life event that left me questioning life. I do not like to ask for help and decided to when I decided to live life. Thank you so much, Urban Balance.

My Urban Balance counselor has provided me with ways to change the circumstances not just for the hour long session, but strategies that work outside of a therapeutic bubble. Thank you so much.

As a counseling center owner I have been particularly impressed with Urban Balance. Not only are they one of the biggest counseling centers in Chicago, but they have been able to retain the positive characteristics that I see in the smaller centers/practices. For example, the center has 6 offices in Chicago and the burbs, but still runs like a small warm and inviting counseling center. The CEO, Joyce Marter, found the secret recipe that counseling business owners like myself covet: clinical integrity, motivated and caring staff, professional administrative staff, and nicely furnished and decorated offices. The best part of Urban Balance, which I am a bit envious about, is that they do most everything so well. I just don't see that in such big companies. Bravo Ms Marter! You have built a company of which you should be proud!

I've been seeing my therapist for almost a year and it has truly changed my life. He offered an environment in which I feel safe to speak about any issues and when needed has spent extra time listening to me.
I couldn't be happier, thusfar, with my experience at Urban Balance. My counselor's intuitive style is both refreshing and assuring. In just a few sessions, I could see progress and hope. Thank you so much. More...
This past year has been very difficult, and it is reassuring to know that I can call up and schedule time with my therapist when I need a safe place to talk. He listens, remembers, and I always leave feeling better. More...
We wanted to let you know just how much you have changed our lives! Within a very short time we started to notice changes that we never thought would happen and you have literally improved our lives more than we can put in writing.
I am not one to share my thoughts or feelings easily. Urban Balance provided a safe and comfortable setting in which I found it easy to talk about things that troubled me. Thank you all so much.
On our first visit to your offices we were very skeptical that what we had discussed would actually help our situation. However, we decided to follow your recommendations and are we glad we did! We highly recommend Urban Balance. Thank you. More...
I was matched up with an amazing therapist who has helped me work through a lot. If you are thinking about therapy I highly suggest you call Urban Balance.
I am a clinician and refer to Urban Balance on a regular basis. They have a wide range of counselors who can assist clients with a variety of concerns from life transitions (career changes, births, deaths, relationships, developmental stages) to overall wellness to chronic mental health management. Their insurance-friendly model helps people obtain counseling without the fear that services will not be available. Urban Balance is known nationally for exceptional service, providing professional development opportunities for counselors, and for supporting he needs of their clients. I highly recommend Urban Balance. More...
I have always had good experiences with Urban Balance. I refer people all the time and have heard only good things. Insurance is a quagmire and they help with that part too. As a clinician, I highly recommend! More...
For me, personally it has been a wonderful experience at Urban Balance. My therapist is full of knowledge and expertise and makes me feel safe to open up about my life.
I write this review as a therapist and owner (Clinical Care Consultants) of a Chicago suburban counseling center. Rarely, have I encountered a counseling / psychotherapy business like Urban Balance. Joyce Marter, the CEO, has done a remarkable job in creating a company that is befitting of it's name. We all are seeking emotional balance and personal/relational harmony. Unfortunately, we can't always achieve it by ourselves. Joyce has put together a company of top notched clinicians, who have the necessary experience, training and therapy know how to compassionately lead their clients on a journey toward emotional and relational balance. I am impressed by the level commitment to the client's needs while truly caring about each and every client. Well done Joyce! Keep up the good work. More...
What I like about UB is their therapists are down to earth, I've been here for both individual and couples counseling. Plus they take care of all insurance stuff for you. The offices are nice nothing fancy but very comfortable and there is a private waiting room. More...
Urban Balance i found is well run, from billing to scheduling to the focus of the sessions. Therapists in practice have complementary specialties and office is private and welcoming.
