Are you looking to make changes in your life to become happier, less stressed and anxious, more fulfilled in your relationships? I would love to help you develop the tools and skills necessary to make this happen. I have over 20+ years experience as a psychotherapist. The last 6 yrs I have been trained in using Dr.David Burns' T.E.A.M. model of CBT. It can transform lives. My style is warm, empathic, and respectful. My strengths include enhancing communication skills;dealing with life transition/losses; substance abuse recovery work. Visit my web site at www.barbarahoffmanlmft.com
I use a wide variety of methods to assist clients in making changes, especially in overcoming anxiety,stress and depression,to help find happier and healthier ways of living. Homework assignments help clients to practice improving their new skills.Warmth, empathy, and understanding are essential to opening oneself to change.
I am a disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, the Indian Master who wrote the "Autobiography of a Yogi." My spiritual path, including meditation and yoga, helps me bring calmness, peace, and harmony to my work with clients. I welcome people of all spiritual paths.
