I am a licensed clinical social worker licensed in Arizona with over 24 years of experience working as a mental health counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, low self-esteem, anger, and communication problems. I have been depressed so I know how beneficial counseling can be .
My counseling style is accepting and non-judgmental. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral counseling, mindfulness counseling. I will tailor your treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I will support your courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life so you can take the first steps towards personal change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I feel very comfortable with her. She has helped me a lot so far and I really do look forward to my next session every time.
Barbara has been there and seen that, absolutely required knowledge to be able to help someone.
Barbara is a person you can feel confident enough to speak your mind.. like a tentative auntie.
You're an awesome guide thru my doubts and anxieties. Thank you so much for your attention and counsel.
Barbara faithfully checks on me and supports me. I feel like she genuinely cares about me and is here to listen to me and help me. She is very positive and encouraging.
Barbara has been very helpful to me in the few sessions we have had and I’m excited to be able to work with her.
