About

(

)
You are feeling tired, restless, antsy, empty, confused, and wanting to sort out the *stuff* in your head and heart. You want to find your footing in your family, or your marriage, or your parenting and yourself. You are done with doing things the same ol' way. You are reading these profiles asking yourself "who will hear me", "who will get me", or "who can I tell my story to?" I have good news, you are the expert of your own life and with that, you and I create a partnership and it is the foundation of our therapeutic alliance.
My specialty is Moms, Men and Millenials. Using different modalities, I assess your readiness to change, provide strategies to move and guide you through the trials and errors of getting out of your comfort zones and approaching old problems with new eyes.
Offering you a chance to feel seen, and heard. Getting asked questions you hadn't considered before. You don't have to come with your ducks all in a row; get met exactly where you are. My philosophy is inspiring change in honoring autonomy while enhancing strengths.
Se siente cansado, inquieto, vacío, confundido y con ganas de ordenar las *cosas * en su cabeza y corazón. Desea encontrar el equilibrio en su familia, su matrimonio, su crianza y usted mismo. No quiere hacer las cosas de la misma manera. Está leyendo estos perfiles preguntándose "quién me escuchará", o "¿a quién puedo contarle mi historia?" Tengo buenas noticias, usted es el experto de su propia vida y con eso, usted y yo creamos una asociación y es la base de nuestra alianza terapéutica.
Mi especialidad es usted. Usando diferentes modalidades, evalúo su disposición para cambiar, proporciono estrategias para moverse y lo guío a través de las pruebas y los errores de salir de sus zonas de confort y de abordar viejos problemas con nuevos ojos.
Ofreciéndole la oportunidad de sentirse visto y escuchado. Recibiendo preguntas que no habías considerado antes. Mi filosofía es un cambio inspirador para honrar la autonomía y mejorar las fortalezas.

Barbie Atkinson's Groups

Virtual Calm Crusaders (www.CalmCrusaders.com)

I'm the creator of this after school 6 week group for kids aged 9-12. 1. learning to identify stress, worry, emotions, overwhelm, fears, frustration. 2. learning to be present with their body in order to listen to it, 3. What in the heck happens to each of us, individually right before we behave a certain way, 4.learning the F cubed (fight, flight and freeze) response, 5. learning that particular situations lead to thoughts, thoughts lead to emotions and emotions lead to behavior, 6. tools to use outside of calm crusaders sessions and 7. diaphragmatic (deep belly) breathing.
