More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 16

Hello. I am a LCSW specializing in anxiety related disorders. My focus over the past ten years has been with survivors of trauma, loss and family upheaval. The majority of my clients described feeling anxious, depressed, confused, angry and overwhelmed. Often, these feelings resulted in relationship difficulties and loss, parenting struggles, job dissatisfaction and/or struggles with academic pursuits.

My approach to treatment strongly incorporates my belief in strengths and resilience. I have witnessed the courage of clients willingly confront their fears, personal obstacles and unhealthy coping mechanisms. I feel honored to help my clients overcome their old negative beliefs and perspectives and replace them with new, strong and positive approaches to their lives and experiences.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I love her she’s great!

R.I.·Jun 06, 2021


I have had many counselors over the years, with lukewarm experiences at best. From my very first session with Barb, I felt like I had FINALLY found my counselor. She asks thought-provoking questions that I find myself pondering while driving to work, or walking my dog, or doing house chores. Our conversations have lead me to a deeper understanding of myself. Barb makes me laugh, and she holds me accountable for my own BS. I feel like I can trust her with any challenge that comes my way, and we’ll tackle it together. I have tremendous gratitude for being matched with her, and for the work she helps me do.

This is my first experience seeking help and counseling, and Barb has been fantastic! She has truly taken interest in me and my life, it doesn’t feel like I’m just another client. We have been working on some fairly traumatic things and even though we have a ways to go, I feel confident in the path we’re taking. I feel so much better now than when we began a few months ago!

Barb's insight is invaluable. Her kind words get right to the heart of the matter and root of the problem. She listens and speaks with genuine care, compassion, patience, and goodwill to others.

K.A.·May 04, 2021


I feel like I can be completely honest with her. She is very detail oriented, and straight forward. I could dump all my thoughts and emotions to her, and sometime I don’t even know where my thoughts are going and she would still be able to process very nicely.

Barb is a warm and caring therapist who creates a safe space for our work together. She has helped me get in touch with some very deep and painful issues, and I can see how I am slowly overcoming them.

A.L.·Apr 02, 2021


Barbara is wise and kind. She remembers everything I tell her about and encourages me in new ways of seeing situations. I look forward to connecting with her each week—it helps me keep perspective in these wild times.

I’ve only had one counseling session with Barb so far. But she has already helped me understand so much about myself. It’s very easy for me to open up to her because it feels like talking to a friend. I’m very much looking forward to my next sessions.

M.I.·Mar 31, 2021


Barbara is an ideal counselor if you want to be heard, challenged and supported.

Barbara is amazing and I have loved every single interaction I have had with her.

C.O.·Jan 07, 2021


Barb is the best counselor I've ever had. She is she is empathetic and caring, and her use of EMDR has been life changing. I would recommend Barb to anyone interested in trying EMDR.

J.E.·Nov 23, 2020


Barbara is a highly skilled therapist. She is warm and approachable, listens and understands. She is knowledgeable in EMDR which helped me to recover from childhood trauma. I highly recommend Barbara!

K.I.·Nov 13, 2020


Barbara is very knowledgeable and helpful. She has past work experience in areas that are helpful to use and pass on to clients. Very compassionate. I am glad I am able to work with her.

N.O.·Oct 11, 2020


Barbara is a blessing. Grateful to have found her at the moment in time that I did. She has been key to my healing. I have been searching for the right kind of therapy to support me in releasing the trauma, and tension, in my body. I found her at the perfect moment in my life to have her guidance and support in what I am moving through.

V.A.·Oct 05, 2020


Barb is a very good match. Finding a counselor that understands and can relate to your view on life can be hit or miss. Barb is a definite hit! I think the questionnaire that BetterHelp uses to find a good match must help this process. I highly suggest that BetterHelp does what it can to keep Barb on staff. She's a keeper!!

Barbara is the best therapist I’ve had, and I’ve had many. She will build trust, get to know you, remember details, and is excellent at “reading the room.” Talking to her never felt clinical and cold, though if that’s your preference I’m sure she could adapt. It felt more like talking to an old friend (except the conversation is pretty one sided and your friend is a mental health expert.) I always gain valuable insight, perspective, and she helps me uncover my blind spots, and helps me feel normal. She’s really helped me navigate my love life, heal trauma, find direction, and feel content with exactly where i am (that’s saying something in 2020.) Barbara is a star counselor and I wish the masses has access to her perspective and expertise.

S.A.·Aug 25, 2020


Barbara is a professional and kind hearted counselor who puts the needs and preferences of her clients first. She was very open to what I have and have not worked through and made my sessions worthwhile. She pushes you just the right amount out of your comfort zone to get the growth you seek.

A.L.·Aug 15, 2020


She is always kind and knowledgeable.

T.A.·Jul 28, 2020


Barbara is very knowledgeable, empathetic and professional. She's easy to talk to and truly cares.

E.M.·Jul 17, 2020


Barbara has been so awesome to work with! We use messaging to communicate and it has been so helpful. She listens to me and acknowledges my concerns and points me in the right direction. She is very easy to talk to and I know when I have a message from her, it's going to be well-thought out and helpful. I really appreciate her!

K.A.·Jun 01, 2020


I was very hesitant that talking to a stranger would be more helpful than confiding in close friends/family. But I feel like she reads my mind. I was feeling like I wanted to move on to the next subject because hey, this thing IS pricey. And THAT session she suggested we move on to the next subject. I usually prefer counselors closer to my age (early 20’s) and I was worried the age gap would make it harder to see eye to eye but like I said I feel like she reads my mind half the time she can understand my feelings that I feel like are sometimes difficult to articulate, down to a Tee.

M.A.·May 30, 2020


Barbara is one if the best therapists I’ve had in my short time with her, and there have been many others. I need a LOT of help. She is attentive, remembers details from your life, a great listener, and flexible in her approach and with your needs. I’ve learned so much valuable information about myself working with her. It has helped transform my relationships and forgive myself and be more gentle with myself.
