We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
— Albert Einstein

Our Mission

In Balance Studio is an organization dedicated to building calm minds, calm bodies and positive connections for children, teens, families, and their communities.  

At the heart of all In Balance Studio practices, is the fact that children have an amazing ability to use play and imagination to solve problems, to grow, and to heal.  Play is a child's natural way to learn about themselves and their relationships in the world.  Play allows the mind and body to relax, making space for learning new skills or for seeing a presenting challenge from a different perspective.

All practices are based on the belief that we learn best in the present moment, in connection with others, when we feel safe and when we are having fun.  Many times we are told what to do, but not shown HOW or WHY.  In Balance offers a dynamic therapeutic environment that embodies the HOW, WHY, and WHAT to do through actual experiences of doing it, in the here-and-now.
