Barbara R Lewis is not currently accepting new clients.

Much of our experience is unconscious and out of awareness; therapy can bring these experiences to consciousness, creating new pathways for healing, growth, and living with intention. I work best with adults (23&older) open to self-discovery and motivated to make changes that promote greater well-being. I help people navigate relationship issues, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, career/academic stress, chronic medical problems, perinatal emotional complications, parenting support, and life transitions, including grief and loss. I also work with couples seeking to enhance their communication skills, identify and transform unhelpful patterns, increase mutual empathy and respect, and deepen intimacy.

A strong, trusting, and collaborative therapeutic alliance is at the heart of successful treatment. Clients describe me as warm, direct, nonjudgmental, and "real." I am primarily a psychodynamic therapist who integrates other modalities: attachment theory, mindfulness, experiential dynamic therapy, family systems frameworks, CBT, and narrative therapy. I am LGBTQ affirming.

I have expertise helping women and families impacted by adoption; perinatal depression/anxiety/OCD; infertility; fetal loss; termination; birth trauma; and developmental disability. My MFA in writing and prior experiences in higher education, media, and high-tech/biotech inform my work with academics, tech professionals, and creatives. September appointments available.
