All of us deserve to savor what life has to offer to the fullest extent possible. Many of us experience that journey as compromised by obstacles that threaten to rob us of our joy. These blockages may come from events in the present such as loss of a loved one or a deteriorating relationship; or they may result from earlier events that have left wounds/scars unhealed. I have been engaged in clinical work for 35 years, helping people navigate difficulties, heal trauma, restore their lives to wholeness. I invite you to let me walk that journey with you.... -- Barbara
Individual/Couples/Group Therapy, & Pastoral Counseling for adults. Integrative & collaborative approach, including: EMDR (certified), experiential therapy, "parts" work, psychodrama, inner child, childhood/adult trauma, women's issues, visualization, shame/guilt, spirituality, end-of-life, CBT, anxiety, stress, mood disorders, relationship/attachment, LGBTQ, ACOA, loss/grief, dissociative disorders, life transitions; supervision.
I am a pastoral counselor as well as a mental health clinician and trauma therapist. For some people, religion/spirituality has been a major source of comfort/support as they tackle life's difficulties; for others, anger with God is an obstacle to healing. All experiences/issues are welcome here.
