**Accepting new clients in Fall 2021** I enjoy working with adult students and professionals who are experiencing psychological conditions including PTSD, depression, sleep concerns, obsessive-compulsive and anxiety disorders, and with those who are coping with loss and grief, role, identity, and career concerns, and relational conflicts. As motherhood can be challenging, I have specialty training in providing care for women throughout pregnancy and postpartum recovery and facilitate a psychotherapy group for moms to further increase support during this important time.

Barbara's minor area of focus in her education was in developmental psychology and the psychology of women .
As a psychologist, Barbara works collaboratively with individuals to help them explore what has led to current suffering and how to approach their suffering in ways that can lead to a more fulfilling life. She considers herself a generalist in that she works with many different presenting issues from anxiety, depression and grief to issues of life transition such as adjustment to collegiate life and retirement. Within that quest, Barbara's nursing background has helped her to be mindful of biological and health issues as they may relate to emotional and spiritual wellness.

As a mother, grandmother, teacher and former family and divorce mediator, I am sensitive to finding the right words to soothe, comfort and connect with others so that each person feels heard, understood and valued. In therapy I will help you recognize, accept, investigate and nurture your feelings. From this connected place your interactions with others will reflect your heart instead of your threatened brain. My approach is based on the science of neurobiology, the wisdom of Buddhist philosophy, a dose of humor, and the warmth we generate together.

We may utilize traditional verbal therapy or tap into the healing power of Art Therapy. Art Therapy requires no special skills as the focus is on the process of art making and the verbal communication included in that process, not the art product itself.

*Not currently enrolling new clients* Trauma happens when stressful experiences deplete our physical, mental, or emotional resources. Unresolved traumas can persist as anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and a variety of other distressing symptoms that wreak havoc on our daily lives. I do not believe that we "get over" our traumas, but rather that we find a way through them. As your therapist, I will walk beside you in your journey through trauma as you regain control over your personal story.
