About Me

Hi, I’m Barbara, an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. I believe the most important thing in our lives are our connections. The relationship that we have with others, such as our partner, family, friends, coworkers/community, and the relationship with ourselves.

I am experienced in working with individuals, families, and couples that struggle with relational issues, stress, insomnia, depression, anxiety, chronic illness, and grief. I use evidence-based treatment modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), and the Gottman Method.

Sometimes life gets thrown at us and we feel stuck and too overwhelmed to navigate through it by ourselves. There are times when we feel disconnected from our partner and other people around us. I believe that each one of us has an innate capacity to learn, heal, and grow by accessing our inner strengths. My goal is to help you increase your self-awareness, find new coping strategies, make life decisions that are cohesive with your core values, and to reconnect with your loved ones.

Reaching out for help requires a lot of courage. I offer a safe space and will meet you with openness, curiosity, and respect.

If you are ready for the next step please reach out to schedule an appointment.

What Makes Me Credible

I was trained to view my work through a biopsychosocial-spiritual lens and customize the treatment goals in collaboration with my clients to fit their individual needs and strengths.
