I’m Christine Ballance, LCPC and I am the Founder and CEO of Brave Is Better. I am dedicated to creating calm, comfortable and safe spaces to explore mental health and create change. I help people solve problems by focusing on developing their strengths, resulting in happier and healthier lives. I am a licensed counselor and coach focused on helping you reach your goals.

My approach focuses on Holistic Wellness. Together we look at the areas of your life which are going well and work to strengthen them while also problem solving and creating solutions to the areas you would like to improve. Taking the first step can be scary and you are incredibly courageous and strong for reaching out.

The Stories of Success

“I came to Christine feeling stuck and overwhelmed. I was not sure which opportunities were best for me and had a hard time making choices. She helped me clarify and set goals based on my values. More importantly, she taught me to apply a “value-based” lens to my decision making. I have a renewed sense of confidence and feel empowered”.

“ Christine, with Brave is Better, helped guide me on my journey to self-discovery. I began challenging how I perceive myself in all my relationships. I learned new ways to love myself without approval of others. I now approach people and situations with new hope and confidence”.

“We were in a very bad place and you really stopped us from going down a bad path. You helped us both learn new ways to communicate how we feel and what we need from each other. We are slowly improving and feel more hopeful in our marriage”.
