Hello, and welcome! Do you need a therapist who is easy to talk to, has experience, and is not critical or judgemental? I am a good listener and a people person. I am respectful, helpful, and supportive. Together we can build a trusting relationship. You will feel safe and able to talk about the things that are bothering you. My clients are college-aged, adult, and adolescent. During the first few sessions as I gain understanding your concerns, we will talk about different counseling theories and techniques you might like to try. You are in control of your therapy.

I help people with anxiety, depression, obsessive thinking, trauma, grief and loss issues learn how to better manage, decrease, and eliminate emotional and mental pain. In therapy sessions, you will learn to take control. I use relaxation techniques, Person-Centered, Cognitive Behavioral, EMDR, REBT, Trauma-Focused, and Grief Recovery skills.

I have been told my office space is relaxing, comfortable, private and safe. You will know if we have made a connection and we are a good fit for you your therapy. Please call or text (724) 471-8171. Email: barbaraelkinlpc@gmail.com. Visit my website at www.barbaraelkinlpc.com.
