Holly Walker, LPC-S, NCC

in Our Team

If you feel depressed, sad, numb, anxious, have negative thoughts about yourself, or can’t quite put your finger on it, you probably wish things could be different. I’m here to tell you they can be!  At times do you feel helpless, hopeless, worthless, or a combination of the three?  If so, I applaud you for taking the important step of seeking a therapist.

I specialize in treating individuals with depression & anxiety, those who are “people pleasers”, couples experiencing relationship challenges, and co-parenting & blended family issues.  I see adults ages 19 and up and enjoy working with individuals and couples. 

I joined The Balanced Life, LLC in 2015 and knew from day one that it was the right decision and have never looked back.  With the amazing privilege of helping others, I love the counseling profession and all it has to offer my clients.  I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Nationally Certified Counselor and hold a Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree from Indiana University and Master of Arts Degree in Professional Counseling from Argosy University, Nashville.  I use a combination of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), healthy lifestyle approach, and positive psychology. 

My philosophy is that counseling is a collaborative effort between client and counselor and that together, goals are reached. I strive to provide a warm accepting environment that brings hope and healing to some of life’s most difficult experiences.

If you’d like to contact me (Holly) to schedule an appointment, you can call me directly at 256-258-7777 x 102 or email holly@thebalancedlifellc.com.

Counselor Supervision

Finding a licensure supervisor once you have finished your Master’s Degree can be a tricky process but it doesn’t have to be. I am an experienced licensure supervisor who has seen a number of ALC’s from the beginning of supervision to the attainment of their LPC. I guide individuals through the initial paperwork process, answering the numerous questions new graduates  have. I meet with my supervisees weekly at either my office in Madison or other local sites as needed and read professional literature with them to further awareness and knowledge. I often study with my supervisees for their National Board Exam and provide support through the application and testing process. If you’re looking for an experienced, direct and enthusiastic supervisor and mentor for the licensure process, look no further and call or email me at holly@thebalancedlifellc.com today!
