Hello and welcome! My name is Kim M. Barry and I am pleased that you are considering us working together. I am a Licensed Social Worker in the State of MD and DC with over 20 years of experience. I am able to work with clients experiencing a wide range of challenges such as depression, PTSD, anxiety, trauma, abuse, domestic violence, anger, and grief and loss. I also am able to counsel individuals with addictions and persons coping with general life changes and transitions.

My Counseling style focuses on building trust, an authentic therapeutic relationship for you to explore life challenges and relationships. My approach is strengths-based combined with Cognitive Behavioral and Solution Focused Therapy. I will provide you with the tools that you will be able to apply to other issues in the future.

Kim is great! She lets me talk. She keeps it really simple and uses easy to understand responses to help me see my issues after I exhaust myself venting or meandering through my stuff!
