Being alive in the 21st century is amazing, surely unlike anything that our ancestors experienced, in both stresses and opportunities. We can have a conversation about what it is like for you, trying to live up to your deepest held values in the face of real challenges. I start with the assumption that you have what it takes to move more fully into a vibrant, meaningful life, even during times of great uncertainty. Sometimes life presents challenges that seem overwhelming. Seeking help is a sign of strength in such times.

Helping couples reconnect and reduce conflict that creates distance in their relationship with the most effective marriage counseling approach...Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT). While using EFT as my treatment approach I have successfully guided couples to regain trust, communication, and the love they thought they had lost in their relationship. Many of my clients are referrals from other clients and couples who have researched the most effective couples treatment and discovered EFT.

I believe that the most healing, transformative therapeutic work occurs when there is an authentic relationship between therapist and client. I provide an environment which fundamentally supports a feeling of safety by witnessing you where you are with curiosity and without judgment. For many people, feeling safe also involves being able to set their own pace in therapy.

I entered my doctoral program in counseling psychology with the aim of integrating what I had already learned through study of meditation and Buddhist practice with the technology of Western concepts of wellness and health. I came out with a deep appreciation for the many ways that people arrive at a counselor's door and the many ways they leave. Throughout our lives we constantly face new challenges, leaving home, coupling, parenting, careering, retiring all present challenges we've never faced before. At any point along the way we may be called on to marshal new resources or adapt old strategies that are no longer working.

I strongly believe that each of my clients is the expert on their own life and experiences -- while acknowledging that all of us have times where we can feel like anything but that! Whether you are seeking therapy out of a desire for self-care, self-improvement, or self-discovery, I would welcome the chance to work with you. My role is not to provide advice or to tell you how things are, but to aid you and support you in exploring your own mind and feelings as we work towards your goals. We cannot change the past, but we can find new ways to relate to it, and in doing so, shape our future into whatever we want it to be.

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.

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.

As Annie Dillard wrote, "How we spend our days is of course how we spend our lives." Being able to find gratitude, peace and fulfillment in the present moment is more powerful than chasing a future that might be ideal. Finding joy is a practice that starts by taking the time to figure out what is getting in the way. Once these challenges are identified, you and I can make a plan together to learn and practice skills and strategies to overcome those obstacles and create change.

Life difficulties come in many forms, and our nervous systems can go into overdrive as we attempt to adapt. This can cause long-standing patterns in the mind and body. We may feel out of touch with who we are, or like we are repeating patterns of fight, flight, or freeze. If you are looking for less analysis and words, and are interested in working directly with your body through your felt experience, this may be a good fit for you. Using curiosity and building capacity, we'll find places where you are stuck, and create long-term pathways to feeling more embodied and free.

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 usually find that clients managing anxiety, depression, loss and/or addiction are first looking for a compassionate listener with the experience and knowledge that facilitates emerging inner strength. My approach is compassionate, non-judgmental and professional. Frequently my clients have issues with drugs or alcohol and I may work also with their partners, family, or concerned friends. I feel it is critical for everyone involved to know that they are not alone in their struggles, that support and guidance are available and that therapy has helped people feel better than they thought possible.

My clients are often younger adults (20's-40's) and include anyone with some desire to grow their understanding of their true selves, the purpose of and vision for their life, and how in daily/weekly practice to live a coherent and happier life (relationships, career, family...) towards these. While their longing & readiness for these is strongest, we work more intensively for some months (not years) before a break. My couples, also often 20's-40's, tend to hire me when they feel these longings together & often in phases of growth induced by stress/strain, opportunity (or both) in the relationship, like having a child or moving.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
