You don't have to make it alone! We are here to support you.


Welcome to A Balanced Perspective, LLC - a private practice located in Anne Arundel County MD founded by Shivon Massenburg NCC, LCPC, BC-TMH. Shivon envisioned breaking down walls, bridging gaps, and serving individuals in need of genuine services that meet them where they are in greater, more authentic ways. With this, she has served her community as a licensed psychotherapist, mental health advocate, and speaker. A Balanced Perspective LLC seeks to provide a number of things and this includes services that attend to the needs of those who enter our doors on a personal level which contribute to them creating a new lifestyle!


Words can not describe our passion for the work we do. Removing the stigma associated with mental health, assisting individuals as they discover how to navigate unpacking their experiences, reaching their goals and gaining insight through therapy are just a few pieces of that which we are committed to. At A Balanced Perspective, LLC we see the “whole person” and utilize frameworks that compliment the approach of attending to each unique individual.
