Nerissa Balland Life Coach/Arts In Health Practitioner
I’m Nerissa Balland. A 2x cancer survivor, a life coach, a visual artist, and most importantly a mother. I provide people with resources that reduce suffering and increase inner peace. I have faced adversity through Cancer, infertility, loss of a child, and divorce. I’m stronger than ever, more grateful, more realistic, loving, and accepting of myself and others. My goal is to help your greatest challenge awaken an opportunity to become your greatest gift.
I help women who suffer from physical and emotional symptoms resulting from adverse situations that negatively impact their daily routines. Women who experience fear, anxiety, depression, deep sadness, and/or avoidance, coupled with physical symptoms, such as, inability to focus, chronic pain, tension, shortness of breath, or increased blood pressure after a traumatic event often access their survival instinct known as “fight-or-flight”.
I specialize in…
- accepting and living with Cancer
- coping with moderate to severe health issues
- dealing with infertility
- healing from the loss of a child (i.e., miscarriage, termination, still-born, early-term, infancy)
- life after divorce
How I help
I provide clients with resources to deactivate their “flight or fight” mentality. I guide them to reframe their adversity, build resilience, and find peace. I do this by merging neuroscience and therapeutic art techniques. We focus on obstacles, goals, and appropriate resources needed to create transformation within a session, as well as independently. You do not have to face adversity alone.
