Barry Erdman, MSW, ACSW, LCSW, DCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Boulder
Hello! I'm a longtime humanistic/existentially oriented therapist. I take pride in caring about the people I see who may be dealing with difficult life challenges, with full respectful and positive regard; not as struggling patients diagnosed with mental disorders. As an eclectic clinician, I prefer developing a therapeutic approach with you by using methods and techniques which best match your specific personal needs and goals. I draw upon a synthesis of conventional clinical training (social work, marriage and family counseling, community mental health) with alternative and integrative treatment modalities (transpersonal, clinical hypnosis, body centered psychotherapy, NLP, Buddhism, Hinduism).
In addition, I specialize on how diet and nutrition directly affects mental and physical health (i.e. gut health, modifying intake of grains, gluten, carbohydrates, sugars, fats). Are you interested in learning more about yourself? Would you like to change old habit patterns, improve your relationship, learn better communication, ...
address mood changes (depression/anxiety), deal with sadness, grief, loss, addiction or hurt? Would you like to learn anger management skills, or manage stress? If so, I want to meet with you asap! Email or call today to schedule an initial interview to determine how we may best work together!
