UB mentioned in powerful essay by Northwestern student about mental health

We are so honored to be mentioned in this powerful essay about mental health by a Northwestern student. The piece is part of The Spectrum, a weekly forum in The Daily Northwestern newspaper. 

In her article, Navigating mental health beyond Northwestern, Carson Brown discusses her struggle with trichotillomania, an anxiety disorder related to impulse control. She shares her experiences about being vulnerable and asking for help, which led her Urban Balance.

Brown’s professor suggested she reach out to Urban Balance to find a therapist who is in-network with her insurance company and located in Evanston:

“She listened to my story and recommended I go to Urban Balance. UB describes itself as “insurance-friendly,” and patients pay $20 per session. With an office in Evanston, they seemed almost too good to be true and I was shocked that I’d never heard of the resource. Now I see my therapist at Urban Balance every Tuesday night. She is kind and funny and she always shows me my options, letting me find solutions on my own.”

This story is a testament to our mission at Urban Balance, to provide psychotherapy services that are accessible, affordable and insurance-friendly. Our team of therapists are well-trained, talented and compassionate, and we all work to promote healing and growth.
