Hello! I am a License Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado. I am also a Veteran of the United States Air Force. I spent the past four years working in an inpatient program for men coming out of prison and into community corrections. It has taught me about the will and drive to overcome addictions and family history/traumas. The men I worked with inspired me everyday.
My approach to counseling is person centered. You are in charge of what you want to work on. I am an expert of the process of change, but not on you. When we challenge our thoughts, our behavior and actions will change. This is usually the way I would challenge someone who would like to change whatever is causing them discomfort.
I don't give advice as that is not what therapists do. I work with you and help guide you to a better understanding of your issue and then we work together to find a plan to fix the discomfort you were experiencing.
I look forward to having the chance to work with you!

Barbara is a great listener and asks questions that help me question my own old, tired 'stories' that I tell myself. She has helped me look to the future and appreciate the present instead of wallowing in the past. She has assisted me in appreciating my small successes along my bumpy road of recovery from addiction.
Barbara provides a safe place and shows a genuine interest in you. Although we don’t meet often she has a great recall on things we have talked about in previous sessions.
I love Barbara. Easy to talk to, very genuine and is clear on guidance. She centers everything back to you and how you’re feeling.
Barb is so easy to talk to and very kind. She has been responsive and helped me through some rough weeks. Thank you, Barb.
