“Every month we feature a different clinician, who gives us a snippet into their work and life. They reveal everything from what they love about being a therapist to the biggest challenge for both their clients and themselves to how they personally cope with stress.
This month we had the pleasure of chatting with Joyce Marter, a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and owner of Urban Balance, an insurance-friendly counseling practice with over 40 therapists and five locations in Chicagoland.
Marter received her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Northwestern University and was awarded Distinguished Alumni of the Year in 2008. In 2010 she was selected by Crain’s Chicago Business for the ’40 Under 40′ list.
Marter currently serves as the Vice President of the Board of the Illinois Mental Health Counselors Association and an Editorial Advisor for ‘Wellness Times’. She has been consulted as a psychological expert on television, radio and in publications such as The Wall Street Journal and U.S. News.”
