About Me

Hi! Thank you for checking out my profile! I'm so glad you are here.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with over 10 years of experience helping clients cope with life's challenges.

Life can be difficult sometimes--that is normal. But sometimes we suffer much more than we need to. It's courageous to ask for help when we are struggling. When I was 24 years old, I reached out for to a therapist for the first time and she gave me to tools to change my life and inspired me to want to be a therapist myself, so that I could help others the way she helped me. I empower my clients with critical tools such as motivation, self-compassion, stress-management, and communication and relational skills.

My style is direct, but also warm and validating. I am also a huge advocate of SOLUTIONS. I will guide you toward your own goals, and encourage you to live more closely in line with your values, communicate effectively, all while being kind and compassionate with yourself and others. We are all just doing the best we can, but with the right tools we can change, grow and have the best life possible.

Please get in touch if you think I can help you with whatever it is you are struggling with. Thank you!

Barbi is fantastic! Great at going above & beyond! She provides extra materials such as videos, as well as articles. She responds quickly and reaches out on her own as well!

Barbi is awesome! She’s very responsive, supportive, and always ready to share an abundance of resources with you to help you work through and think about a situation differently. With other counselors I never knew what to do after I left their office; with Barbi I feel like I know exactly what I can do after every session, and it really increases my sense of control over my life. She’s the best!
