Professional statement

Barbara Brown is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Bothell, WA who specializes in trauma, including adults with a history of childhood trauma, hypnotherapy, spiritual regression techniques, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, loss and grief. She particularly enjoys working with clients who have been in therapy before and are interested in learning how to get in touch with their body and feelings, want lasting healing on a deep spiritual level, and want more than talk therapy.

Barbara utilizes a number of different treatment approaches, including Hypnotherapy, Past Life Regression Therapy, Chakra Healing, Client Centered Therapy (IPT), Mindfulness practices, and Holistic Therapy. She helps clients understand how trauma during their childhood has informed their beliefs and behaviors. Her goal is to offer a safe space where clients can start addressing how the effects of past traumas come up in their lives. She also incorporates spirituality and hypnotherapy into sessions, when appropriate. She believes these tools can help clients feel safe and find their life's purpose making their life more meaningful and positive.

Barbara is committed to helping her clients reach their goals and become who they truly are. She has taken many trainings on trauma to ensure she is providing gold-standard treatment. She looks forward to meeting you and helping you meet your full potential. She currently is only offering virtual sessions. Please visit her website for more information.

Message to clients

I know how hard it can be to reach out and ask for help. Asking for help means moving out of your comfort zone and taking a leap of faith. I would be honored to walk along side you on your journey of self exploration.
