Her training includes pastoral counseling with ministers who are cross-training in individual psychotherapy, marriage counseling and family counseling. In addition, she worked with psychologists and psychiatrists in a hospital and a group practice setting.

She deliberately chose the marriage, family, and child counselor’s license because it represents a respect for the value of relationships in mental health and a desire to serve the purpose of creating good relationships. For the past 30 years, Dr. Barbara has maintained a busy private practice.
Dr. Barbara works with individuals, couples and families of all types to strengthen relationships and solve problems that arise from the natural course of couple and family life with all the pressures and complexities of the 21st century. Therapy is brief, results oriented and affordable.
POSITIVE CHANGE BEGINS WITH YOU
"My wife walked out on me two months ago because she said I never listen or pay attention to her. I just didn't understand. I invited her to counseling. Now I understand, and our marriage is stronger than ever in ways I would've never believed."
"Finally I'm able to see beyond my struggles and my addictions and can be the man I've always wanted to be. I'm taking back control of my life. It's one day at a time."
"My ex and I have been over for quite some time, but our children were in such pain. We never realized that we were projecting all our anger on to them. This has been an amazing eye opening experience."
"Since learning the art of communication together, we are like a couple of newly weds. I did marry my best friend."

- Marital conflict
- Poor communication
