I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Maryland and am also a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). For over five years, I have worked with people to help them reconnect with their ability to heal and become whole. I have experience working with trauma issues, grief, depression, anxiety, stress management, and adjustment difficulties. In addition, I also help my clients when they are struggling to manage their careers. Settings I have worked in include hospitals, clinics, private practice, and county services. As a graduate of Loyola University, I have a specialty in pastoral counseling and am very comfortable working with clients on spiritual and religious issues.
My work focuses on counseling as a collaborative process that meets your therapeutic needs and primary concerns. Counseling methods include traditional psychotherapies that are based in a humanistic approach, cognitive behavioral therapy, cognitive processing therapy, and rational emotive behavior therapy along with expressive writing, mindfulness, breathing, meditation, and body awareness.

It’s such a relief to find someone who wants to see me in my entirety and who offers pragmatic advice and solutions. I’m feeling better and more hopeful. Thanks!
She is amazing to talk too and has been extremely helpful with me dealing with my PTSD.
Barbara is supportive and easy to talk to. I definitely recommend her counseling services!
Ms. Kass has honestly really helped me to believe in myself and to not be anxious all the time. She is attentive and pleasant and truly cares about you and your personal concerns. I would recommend her to anyone.
Barbara Kass is very wise and offers reasonable and practical advise. I feel that we've know each other for long time, although we've just met a couple of weeks ago.
I really like Barbara and she really seems to understand my problem is and has provided me with several resources in order to help me. I highly recommend her!
I’ve only been working with Barbara for less than a week and already feel understood, validated, and cared about. Barbara is worth every cent I paid. I want to refer my girlfriend to her too, if that’s possible.
