About

By curiously hearing and understanding your life story through our professional relationship, I hope to unburden you of your pain and help you remove road blocks which might be keeping you from experiencing greater pleasure. I work with adults ranging in age from 18 through post retirement years and specialize in treating life transitions, relationship concerns, depression, anxiety, trauma, infertility, adoption, postpartum depression, grief, loss, and divorce. I'm sensitive to issues of diversity and inclusion, am interested in working with people from various cultural backgrounds, and am a LGBTQ ally.
I have worked in psychiatric hospitals, outpatient clinics, counseling centers, and have returned to private practice. My post-Master's training is from The Institute for Clinical Social Work and from The Advanced Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Program in Nashville. I have an eclectic theoretical approach and enjoy Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and CBT.
I've given workshops, have supervised new therapists, have given media presentations, enjoy learning and my work, respect the boundaries of my profession, and appreciate a sense of humor in the clinical hour. I look forward to meeting you and to answering questions you might have about my practice.

Beth Barnard's Groups

The Family Life Group

The Family Life Group begins with weekly sessions focused on thinking and learning about family structure, embracing and understanding differences in families, and the impact of transition, loss, or trauma. Members learn about relationship dynamics within families and discuss our ultimate task of individuating from our families throughout our lives which includes the need to separate and to reconnect. Future sessions then give members the opportunity to process the uniqueness of their own family experience in the context of their individuation process. Members are asked to commit to the group for six months and have the option of continuing.

More about this group

Talking Together

The Talking Together Group becomes a microcosm of life, as members discuss their own unique issues and learn more about their interactions with others, hence, learning more about themselves. By gaining and giving support, listening and responding to others, agreeing and disagreeing with others, by becoming comfortable speaking-up, even when it's hard to do, or by learning when it is important to listen rather than to speak, we learn more about how others perceive us, and how we perceive others. Slowly, as relationships in the group begin to change, the way members relate in life can also change.
