I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Maryland and am also a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). For over five years, I have worked with people to help them reconnect with their ability to heal and become whole. I have experience working with trauma issues, grief, depression, anxiety, stress management, and adjustment difficulties. In addition, I also help my clients when they are struggling to manage their careers. Settings I have worked in include hospitals, clinics, private practice, and county services. As a graduate of Loyola University, I have a specialty in pastoral counseling and am very comfortable working with clients on spiritual and religious issues.
My work focuses on counseling as a collaborative process that meets your therapeutic needs and primary concerns. Counseling methods include traditional psychotherapies that are based in a humanistic approach, cognitive behavioral therapy, cognitive processing therapy, and rational emotive behavior therapy along with expressive writing, mindfulness, breathing, meditation, and body awareness.

Barbara is easy to connect with and flexible with accommodating my unconventional schedule. I appreciate the thorough follow up recap of our sessions as I can refer to them at my convenience to keep on task with what I have decided to work on. Barbara's listening skills are sharp and I am grateful how she can help me connect-the-dots with my sometimes roller-coaster-to-rabit-hole ranting.
This organization is definitely beneficial to someone with a busy life like mine. Because I NEED THIS it allows me to have access to my counselor, for a lack of better words, at any time. Whether it be video chat, phone, or text; I am able to contact her, express my feelings, and when I get off the phone I feel a sigh of relief.
Barbara is great! She is very kind and provides strategies that felt attainable for me to do while trying to discover solutions for me to better with self care. I looked forward to our sessions and I would recommend her to anyone.
I appreciate Barbara for her caring and helpful counseling. Everything she has recommended has been very helpful. And look forward to continuing our counseling.
