About me

Hello there, I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in the state of NC.

As a helping professional for more than 20 years, my experience is quite diverse and comprehensive. In the field of mental health and wellness, I have functioned in the capacity of Mentor, Educator, Foster/Adoptive Parent and Counselor. I have coached individuals on living, social skills, how to effectively resolve problems and interact with the community as a whole. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

Life experiences often disrupt our sense of wholeness, leaving us feeling unable to find our way back to ourselves. When this happens, our lives and our relationships can become difficult, or even unbearable. Our work together is one of helping you to reunite with that core wisdom within yourself, so you can experience more love, connection and happiness that is innately yours. Together we will develop a deep knowing of who you are and what you stand for. Working together, we will identify and shift patterns that are blocking you from fully experiencing and living a life worth living.

As a highly compassionate, empathetic, patient, respectful and committed individual, I understands it takes courage and time in taking those steps towards this type change. So, if you are ready to take that first step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Very warm, insightful and caring. It feels like talking to a mother that I never had.

Barb is one of the most amazing people I know. I have been to therapy multiple times in my life. This experience has been the best by far. Barb checks in with me just to see how I am doing. The compassion she has for other people is just exceptional. I would recommend Barb to anyone.
