About me

Greetings to you all! I am a National Board Certified Counselor with over 15 years' experience in direct mental health counseling. Licensed to practice counseling in the State of New York, I am a member in good standing of both the American Counseling Association (ACA) and the American Psychological Association (APA). I have worked in the field of criminal justice evaluating inmates at various stages of trauma, particularly PTSD from incarceration, and the social stigma of community based supervision systems like probation and parole. I have assisted veterans, law enforcement officers, teachers, students, men, women, young adults, teens and children to overcome a host of anxiety and mood based disorders and relationship issues. I have worked some of the most difficult client cases in the inner city, but also identify with needs of clients in suburban and rural communities based on my diverse background and extensive experience. I have developed a holistic approach to counseling concentrating on what I call the "7 Pillars of Health" wherein my clients learn to monitor their overall well-being and begin a successful plan and practice of self-regulation. A proponent of Individual Psychology developed by Alfred Adler, and am also quite adept at CBT, Reality Therapy, Psychodynamic, and Mindfulness methods. As a Christian Counselor I also encourage clients to explore their spirituality as part of the healing process.

A phenomenal expert provoking self-discovery and self-analysis across the spectrum of holistic health and development cycles. Barry melds emotional response tactics, spiritual foundations, and mental methodologies seamlessly to integrate expertise into self-awareness. He can meet one where one is while providing consistent value throughout an engagement both live, and ad-hoc as needed.

Highly highly recommended!
