About

I have over 20 years of experience helping clients navigate difficult times, get clarity, build confidence, and move their lives forward. I am down-to-earth and have a direct, compassionate, and collaborative style. I have much experience with diverse populations and understand the importance of considering gender, sexuality, lifestyle, culture, and spirituality. I work with "the whole person", not just the part that is struggling. My style is eclectic and integrated, including cognitive behavioral therapy and insight-oriented, and utilizing what is best for you and your concerns. My approach is strength-based, active, and supportive. My clients report feeling respected, valued, and comfortable.
I specialize in individual psychotherapy, couples counseling, and career counseling. In addition to my listed specialties, I have expertise in stress/burnout, life events/transitions, identity issues, women's issues, mild depression, and behavioral skill-building (communication, productivity, goal-setting, coaching, etc.). I am also available for work/life consultation and workshops for businesses.
For more information about coming to me for individual therapy or couples counseling, please check out my website at www.DrBarbaraDistler.com. I also have extensive experience and training in career counseling/coaching and career development. My career website is www.NextStepDoctor.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
