Are you struggling with a child who doesn't want to go to school or is is falling behind academically? Is your child anxious? Do you have an out of control teenager? I have had great success in helping parents with these problems. When you feel like you have tried everything possible and don't know what to do next, it's time to call a professional. I can help restore harmony to your family!
I will tailor your treatment to your specific problem and personality. I often like to combine eastern style modalities such as mindfulness with traditional approaches such as cognitive behavioral (CBT). Some may elect hypnosis which can move therapy along more quickly. You want to experience relief as quickly as possible.
I do not accept insurance because of the many limitations it puts on the practitioner. Diagnosis codes put harmful labels on people, especially children, and insurance companies should not determine the treatment you, or a family member, receives.

Barbara Stanforth's Groups

Teen Self-Esteem/Social Skills Group

Teenagers' emotions can be intense and ever-changing. These feelings are confusing not only to the teens themselves, but also family members and friends. Sometimes a teen begins having trouble with peer and family relationships. When relationships falter, self-esteem is impacted. If someone you know is having a difficult time with relationships, they will find a welcoming place in this group. I will be using different therapy modalities such as mindfulness, cognitive behavioral (CBT) and dialectical (DBT). If you have any questions about this group,please call!

More about this group

Depression and Anxiety Group for Teens

I will be utilizing Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), an evidence based treatment modality that is effective in the treatment of anxiety and depression. ACT combines mindfulness and acceptance which helps reduce symptoms and improves emotional flexibility. Small groups provide a safe yet dynamic environment for change. I am splitting teen category into two groups, 13-16 and 17-19 years old.
