About Natural Balance Counseling

Natural Balance Counseling is a client-focused counseling practice located in the heart of The Woodlands. We understand that each person comes into the counseling room with their own stories, struggles, and strengths. Our approach focuses on finding and harnessing the potential through the pain in every situation presented,  making the future path that much clearer and easier for you.  This means we work towards identifying the problem, planning a course of action, and taking each step one at a time to find the peace of mind that will create harmony in your every day life. Whether it is providing a safe place to explore one’s new-found self, coaching parents through childhood struggles of all ages, or helping relationships reconnect in new and exciting ways, we believe in using a one-step-at-a-time approach.

 

Alyssa Webb-McCune, the founder of Natural Balance Counseling, has been a part of the Houston community for more than a decade. She understands the unique variety of her neighbors and tailors her style for each individual that walks through her door. It is her passion to provide a safe and supportive space for both clients and clinicians alike to grow and be the best version of themselves possible. She understands that going to counseling for the first time, or trying to start back after a rocky first attempt, can be intimidating and she works hard to make sure each person feels comfortable and heard, in a caring and judgement-free space.

Alyssa Webb-McCune

Founder | Licensed Professional Counselor

Hi! I feel honored and privileged that you are seeking us out for support during this time in your life. I am Alyssa Webb-McCune, a Licensed Professional Counselor and the owner of Natural Balance Counseling.

 

I know it’s not a matter of IF life is going to get unbalanced and messy; it’s more a matter of WHEN that is going to happen. I get it! I know you have been doing your best to handle things on your own, but you deserve the support to succeed and thrive in life, not just having to coast the best you can.

 

My role as a counselor is to walk alongside you and help sort through things when the mess just seems like too much for one person, one parent, one couple, or one family to handle. You don’t have to go through this alone.

 

I believe that when you leave my counseling office, you should be able to leave with insight and skills that are practical and applicable in your daily life. I know that you have a home you go back to, and I want to make sure the changes and goals we work on are things that can be attainable.

I graduated in 2017 from Sam Houston State University with my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am also currently studying to receive my Doctorate in Professional Counseling with a focus in Sex and Sexuality from Houston Graduate School of Theology. Consistent learning is one of the ways I can provide you with the best and highest quality services as well as stay up to date on the current research and trends in the mental health field. I am also passionate about creating a workplace atmosphere for my clinicians where they feel like they can thrive as a counselor without the additional stress that can come with other environments. When I take care of my counselors, they take care of their clients, and everyone thrives!

Administrative Assistant

Hello! I work to make sure everything runs smoothly on the sides you cannot see. By providing support to our clinicians, they are able to spend their time and energy focused on what is important – YOU! I understand that life sometimes gets in the way and throws unexpected curveballs that require quick adaptation and support.  I am also in school to earn my Masters in Counseling and will be joining the team as a student counselor in January 2023. 

 

Outside of supporting our counselors and learning more myself, I enjoy spending time supporting non-profit organizations and with my family.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Hi everyone! I understand and recognize that counseling can be an intimidating thing for some people, but I applaud you for reaching out for support during whatever you are going through.

 

Life is a winding road full of many twists and turns that can feel overwhelming and can be chaotic at times. Sometimes, individuals need help making sense of the chaos and learning how to cope with it. I believe that each individual is the expert for their own life and have the ability to solve their concerns when someone walks alongside them and asks the right questions. I desire to help individuals navigate the many issues that can arise in life including struggles with life transitions and other concerns (divorce, moving, job loss, struggles with work/life balance, family conflict, boundary setting, etc.).

 

I strive to provide a nonjudgmental, empathic, and open-minded space for each client that I meet with and feel it is imperative to meet each client where they at. I understand that each client I meet is complex and unique. I feel it is important to get to know you in all facets of your life including your values, family dynamic, and more. My hope is that you leave my office feeling armed with tools and increased insight to conquer your day to day life stressors and ultimately improve your mental well-being.

 

I have a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Stephen F. Austin State University. I have experience working with many different populations including children, adolescents, adults, members of various religious backgrounds, members of various races/ethnicities, and LGBTQIA+ clients. I feel that as a therapist, my journey for learning will never end and I hope to continue to further expand my knowledge to continue to better serve my clients. I am so excited to be a part of the team at Natural Balance Counseling!
