About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the Commonwealth of VA with over 25 years experience working with those challenged with emotional, grief, loss, and life altering and changing experiences that we all face at some point in our lives. Being human is not unique but how one copes and works through difficult experiences is. I have worked with many people of all ages, children, adolescents, adults and geriatrics in a variety of settings with differing challenges. The bottom line is we all struggle and we all deserve an opportunity to grasp the strength inside ourselves, to empower ourselves to move in ways that are more productive, more life affirming and accepting of who we are and where we hope to go.

I utilize methods that suit each individual while addressing needs, but also stretching comfort zones which is how we break out of our routines that got us into the difficulties we experience. It is difficult to ask for help, and reaching out can be very rewarding. I am here when you feel it is your time to reach out.

100% professional, but very warm and inviting. After our first session. I felt like I could tell her anything. After a couple of sessions, I knew it.

I absolutely loved working with Barbara, she helped me navigate through one of the hardest times of my life and get to a point where I could confidently move forward. I really appreciate her guidance and promoting me to consider questions and journaling my answers outside of our sessions. I would 100% recommend her as a therapist.

Barbara Brown is so amazing. She has helped me gain confidence in myself and battle my depression with techniques and exercises that have worked successfully for me. I’m able to reach out to her anytime I need to and she is always there for me. She makes me feel comfortable and secure and I can be vulnerable with her. She has really been a blessing for me in my hardest times and I’m very grateful for her and her compassion, empathy, expertise and knowledge. I plan on continuing care with her for as long as I feel I need it. Thank you Barbara!

Barbara is so wonderful. When I came to her with a goal she really pushed me to stay on topic with that goal. When something else is bothering me she gives that time then she goes and says well how are we doing with this again? She even gives me homework assignments. She has helped me so much.
