Every one of us is capable of deeply shifting our experience to ultimately live the life we most want. While life events can take us off track, the way we meet those unfolding moments creates our path. Too often we harden, and as we armor ourselves we become cut off from our own extraordinary inner healing capacities. Habitual thoughts and behaviors manifest in response to painful and difficult experiences, clouding our ability to truly see without constraint. We all have the ability to cut through those clouds, to feel more awake and alive, and to become the best version of ourselves.

I have been certified in EMDR therapy and have additional training and experience in adapting EMDR therapy for the treatment of a wide range of issues including: first responders, anxiety, dissociative disorders, and complex post-traumatic stress. My basic understanding is that people have an innate capacity to grow and heal. As a therapist I see my job as helping to create a safe space in which a person can explore their challenge & choose the interventions that help them achieve their goals.

VT MEDICAID ACCEPTED. NEW CLIENTS WELCOME! Do you react intensely to others' behavior? Do people say you are oversensitive? Do you sometimes need to withdraw from people to feel safe? A history of emotional wounding could be playing a big part in your distress. But it is often difficult to make the connection. Emotional mistreatment is not like physical or overt sexual abuse, which are episodic and which often leave specific memories. It is more of a pattern of behavior directed towards you that leaves you feeling hurt, alone and uncertain of your place in the world.

I believe that everyone has the ability to heal and find their happiness in life. At times, we experience an event or events that may impact us in a way that we are unsure how to deal with and this can manifest in many ways. Whether you are a child coping with anxiety, trauma, or big emotions, or an adult struggling with a life change or mental health concerns, we all deserve empathy and support when tackling those difficult and often uncomfortable topics. It is my goal to create an environment where I am able to support and guide clients in being the best versions of themselves.

I believe strongly in the power of self-care, self-compassion, and setting boundaries, and that these are often missing elements when one is struggling. I have experience and enjoy working with people with physical disabilities. The first part of my career was as a hospice social worker for 9 years, supporting many individuals and families throughout their experiences with death, dying, and grieving. This has included individuals with terminal illnesses, as well as loved ones struggling with death and loss, and caregivers. I love working with new human services professionals as well.

Hi! I'm Barbara. I have nearly 20 years of experience working with adults who experience anxiety, depression, codependence, personality issues, communication difficulties, and substance use. These issues keep us from living and experiencing our lives and make our worlds smaller. We often need to process our experiences with another individual and help us make sense of our experiences and to gain a different outlook on them.

I specialize in a type of mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (or ACT, pronounced like the word "act"). ACT techniques were created to help clients develop more flexibility in how they respond to everyday challenges, so that they can pivot towards behavior that makes their lives work more of the time.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
