Barbara Kass

(MS, LCPC, NCC)

About Me

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.

My counseling sessions with Barbara Kass are helping me immensely with my journey to sort myself out, and work on how and why I am the person I am today. She does so without casting any judgement, and I always look forward to our chats.

Barbara has helped me so much! To thinking I was crazy before I started with her, to realizing that I am not in control of everything, and shouldn't stress about things I can't control.

Barbara is awesome. She listens, she understands, and is compassionate. She’s the first voice to ever reassure me that I’m not crazy, I’m just human. I already feel so much better and more equipped to manage day-to-day stressors and anxiety.

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.
