Barbara provides professional and confidential counseling services to adults ages 18 and older, for a wide variety of challenges and issues. Some of these include:
- Anxiety ( social anxiety, shyness, worry, phobias)
- Post Traumatic Stress
- Habits and Addictions ( binge eating, weight loss, alcohol and drug abuse, internet, etc)
- Life transitions, grief and loss
- Spiritual exploration
Sessions are generally 1.5 to 2 hours in length, allowing for sufficient time to provide empathy and support, while also determining what help is wanted, what obstacles may be present, and what goals and skills will be most helpful. Barbara uses the T.E.A.M. model of therapy, which is explained more fully in the section, Style of Therapy. This therapy is a highly innovative and powerful form of therapy that builds upon evidence-based treatments with the goal of achieving rapid change and relief.
Barbara also provides intensive multiple hour therapy to those who want more concentrated work on their issues, or who are coming from out of town and want to spend a long weekend or several hours per day working on specific issues. This can be a very effective way to promote change on long standing and chronic issues.
