About Me

Hello and welcome to BetterHelp! My name is Barbara Oliveri and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of New Jersey. I received my masters degree from NYU with an emphasis in clinical social work practice. I received my Bachelors Degree from Montclair State University in Psychology with a Minor in Communication Studies. I have been working as a hospital social worker for the last 7years and have experience working with a variety of clients including but not limited to adolescents/young adults, elders, addictions counseling, trauma, grief counseling, anxiety and depression and family conflict.

My counseling style is client focused and goal directed. I believe in meeting my client where they're at and working to form realistic and achievable goals. Opening up is never easy but I feel that challenging our negative thoughts allows us to learn how to channel energy into bettering ourselves, one step at a time.
I am realistic and down to earth. I believe in not always taking oneself too seriously and hope to create an open and comfortable environment for you to grow in. I look forward to working with you to help make a stronger you!

As BetterHelp is not my full time job, my hours may vary. I do my best to check messages throughout the day to ensure a timely response and appreciate your patience and understanding.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Please contact me at your convenience and we can discuss further how to meet your specific needs.

She’s perfect for me. I’ve been with her for 2 years and the growth I’ve been though has been incredible. This is the best therapist relationship I could have looked for.

Barbara is the best therapist I've ever had, and I've had quite a few over the years. I can't imagine how I would have gotten through the past two years without Barbara and BetterHelp!

I've been working with Barbara for a couple of months now and I always come away from our sessions with a more calm mind and an action plan. She's wonderful to speak with and I feel heard and supported. Highly recommend!

Barbara is amazing. She is kind and listens well, I love that she can relate to me in ways it feels like I am talking to a friend over a therapist but she also helps guide me in my goal to help getting into a better mental state

I have been through a lot of therapists to try to work out things that have happened in my life. I have never been successful. Barbara is wonderful, supportive, listens but never pushes you beyond your comfort zone. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an awesome therapist and I am so glad I found her on here.
