Nora Balint, LPC-MHSP (temp)
Nora Balint, LPC-MHSP (temp) is a Contract Therapist at The Refuge Center. She obtained her masters degree in counseling from Georgia State University, is a Nationally Certified Counselor, and is working towards full LPC-MHSP licensure in Tennessee. Nora is a member of the Tennessee Licensed Professional Counselors Association, and an exam writer for CE-Credit.com, a Continuing Education resource for counselors.
Nora believes that people are capable of amazing growth and positive change, leading to a rich and fulfilling life. She is honored to be able to walk through this process with her clients, offering support and encouragement along the way, and helping them identify and utilize the strengths and resources that are uniquely available to them as they work towards their goals. Nora believes that we all live and breathe in community with each other. We each have our own individual tendencies, needs, preferences, personalities, gifts, and weaknesses. But all of these factors are also influenced by the family, social, and occupational groups to which we belong.
Nora cherishes the opportunity to navigate and explore these complicated dynamics with children, teens, adults, couples, and families as they strive to become the best they can be as individuals and as family. Some of her areas of focus include parenting, relationship issues, grief and loss, stress, anxiety, LGBTQ+, gender identity, life transitions, hoarding, and peer relationships.
In her free time, you can usually find Nora on the tennis court. She’s not very good, but she is dedicated, and she loves the friends she has made there! She is married with two college-aged children, and has a very spoiled (and sweet) cat named Paige.
