I have been working with children and parents and individuals for many years. My approach to therapy is one of respect, compassion and a bit of tough love when it is needed. You need to feel that I am genuinely trying to help you and care for you. I try to normalize, as much as possible, the emotional circumstances under which you are coming to therapy. None of us are perfect. None of us have come through life unscathed. We also have certain strengths. We have all made mistakes. We have all become stuck in our thinking and with our feelings. Often communication breaks down. Here is where we learn different strategies and, as a result, become stronger, more capable and more fulfilled. I do also like to bring some humor into our sessions, when appropriate, as laughter is good for the soul and does help us gain a different perspective on the situation and ourselves.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Barbara Prosniewski. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Very helpful to talk through my concerns and hear relevant feedback that I can use.
Wonderful woman with a wonderful heart.
Dr. Prosniewski is phenomenal. I was able to vent and my sessions went very very well. I was so happy after my sessions and Dr. Prosniewski is very helpful.
Thank you so much Dr Barbara! I love working with Dr Barbara, she’s got great insight and views, can’t wait to continue our relationship
