About

Lavinia Barbu is a licensed clinical social worker. Lavinia takes a client-centered approach, focusing on each individual’s needs and goals with kindness and professionalism. She works with adult patients (25 to 65 years old) who are experiencing stress, overwhelm, worry, anxiety, are feeling stuck, or who are dealing with difficult transitions. Lavinia helps patients realize that life is understandable, manageable, and meaningful by helping them develop coping skills and cultivating their inner resources like forgiveness, kindness, compassion, gratitude, courage, and finding a purpose and sense of connection.
Outside of work, Lavinia likes to hike, go on spiritual pilgrimages, do yoga, listen to audiobooks, and take nature walks. In graduate school, her favorite show was Frasier. Lavinia likes working at SohoMD because the team empowers her to do her best work, balancing her personality and professional needs and perspectives with a larger team of professionals.
Be aware that certain treatments require an in-person visit with a prescriber. In most cases, medications are prescribed electronically and ready for you at your local pharmacy. Remember, SohoMD is a good fit if you suffer from anxiety, depression, or ADHD.
