About Me

If you are someone who could use help with a life transition, a difficult situation, or other challenges in your life, I would love to work with you. I have over twenty years of professional experience providing therapy. My client's range from professionals to college students to stay-at-home parents anywhere from early adulthood through retirement

With over 24 years of experience, I have an extensive background in helping people with a variety of issues: depression, anxiety, adjustment, stress, marital discord, grief and problems resulting from growing up where there was addiction or trauma. Allow me to assist you in removing the road blocks standing between you and greater joy and peace in your personal journey. Though I would love to help everyone, I cannot work with anyone on this site who self harms or are at risk of harming another. That is best handled with a therapist in their office.

My life has been one of service to help and support individuals in overcoming their challenges, mentally, emotionally and spiritually as needed, toward greater fulfillment in life. As a grandmother, I am in that stage of life where I want to give back what I have learned. Life is a journey of self transformation and I would love to assist you on your way.

I found my conversations with Barbara really helpful. She was incredibly responsive at a time when I needed help the most. She 'listens' really well and with no judgement which makes me feel free to 'speak' my mind.
She has given great recommendations to help get my life back on track. I'm very grateful that we were assigned to each other.
