I have a passion for working with people of all ages, to include adolescents, adults, and the aging population.

I have spent many years working with adolescent girls and young women in building self-esteem, healthy coping and communication skills, and building healthy relationships. I have experience working with adults who are having difficulty navigating interpersonal relationships or struggling with anxiety, depression, and adjustment to life changes. I am also uniquely experienced to particularly work with individuals who have advanced-stage cancer diagnoses, as I have a background in Oncology, and individuals with chronic illnesses.

You are the expert, and I am here to walk alongside you on your journey to new awareness, skill-building, and goal attainment. I typically approach sessions with a Solution-Focused Therapy or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy style. Depending on the specific needs of the client, I may utilize other modalities. I enjoy implementing mindfulness and reflective techniques where appropriate, and I enjoy helping my clients implement holistic practices into their lives in addition to therapy. I incorporate expressive and narrative therapy techniques as creative ways to engage clients. I want to create opportunities that allow my clients to build upon the strengths they inherently have but sometimes struggle to recognize. I am constantly seeking new opportunities to learn new techniques and further my own education so that I can better serve my clients. The therapeutic relationship is vital to our success, and it is my responsibility to continually hone my skills so I can stay fresh on what benefits people the most. I look forward to working with motivated, engaged individuals who want to take steps in a positive direction but may need some help taking the first one!

Hi, my name is Robert Barrett and I have been licensed in Florida as a clinical social worker (LCSW) since 1996. For more than 30 years I have provided counseling and psychotherapy for clients for a wide range of issues including: anxiety, depressed mood, relationship concerns, personal stress, job stress and other difficulties. As a state of Florida certified sex therapist, I am qualified to provide counseling for problems related to sexual function and sexual behavior issues. I have a Master of Social Work degree from Florida International University in Miami, FL, and post-graduate training as a clinical sexologist. I am the past clinical director of Southwest Florida Employee Assistance Program and the past Program Director for Human Services Foundation of Lee County. For ten years I was the student behavioral health counselor at Florida Southwestern State College, Punta Gorda campus. I have been a clinical member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy since 2001. In counseling I utilize a “strength-based” approach known as solution-focused brief therapy. SFBT is based on helping you build solutions by focusing on your current circumstances and your hopes for the future. I also integrate concepts of cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) for identifying the underlying thought patterns that may be contributing to psychological distress. My focus is to help individuals and families navigate life’s sometimes arduous transitions, and my style is to offer a sincere interest in assisting clients get through difficult challenges.

I aim to work collaboratively with my clients to help them through the various roadblocks and difficulties that life presents. People frequently limit themselves based on old assumptions and expectations and it can be freeing to start to disentangle this. The emotional pain caused by these issues is often isolating and confusing and I believe that it can be healing to have somebody else there with you to explore and process. My approach to therapy is to use self understanding and awareness as a mechanism for change. While my style is primarily insight-oriented, I have experience incorporating behavioral therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy into my approach.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Callahan?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Callahan therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Callahan therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Callahan therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Callahan therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in FL, therapists may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 32011 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Callahan counselor?

Before seeing your Callahan therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Callahan.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Callahan licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Callahan counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Callahan, Florida can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Callahan has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
