At this time, Barbara provides confidential psychotherapy online allowing sessions to be scheduled at times around work, school or family commitments, safely, securely, and privately.

Barbara integrates her relational approach with evidence-based interventions that best match one's individual needs and promote one's strengths. She draws primarily from Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Mindfulness, and a neurobehavioral model of addiction treatment.
