About me

I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Missouri Since 1992. I have worked in various settings to include private and state hospitals, and community mental health centers. With these settings, I have had the opportunity to work with chronic mental illness, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, gender identity issues, cultural issues, trauma, life transitions, abandonment, and attachment disorders. I have training in DBT, EMDR, Person Centered, and CBT.
I believe the first time you have a session you begin the healing process. It is your therapy and you lead me where you need to go. I may need at times to help you explore more areas, but only when you are ready. I use a multi-sensory approach along with my other trainings, because words may not always express what needs to be understood. Together skills and insights will be explored that will be useful for your current issue and be able to translate to other concerns.
I hope you decide to start your healing soon and I will be happy to join you in the experience.

She has literally saved my life. I don't know where I would be if I hadn't found her.

Barbara has helped me to look at situations from different perspectives and to consider things that I previously had not. She is very knowledgeable, caring, and dependable. She checks in regularly and is a genuinely caring person.
