Barbara Sosa is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor located in Tampa, FL. Barbara works with teenagers, young adults, and adults. She offers sessions for individuals and couples, including parents who would like to grow their family relationships. Many of Barbara’s clients face challenges managing their emotional reactions, becoming inappropriately angry, sad, or anxious when experiencing distress. This may be the result of previous trauma, or it might be influenced by perfectionistic tendencies or heightened work stress.
Barbara practices Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), a therapy modality that helps individuals overcome their mental health symptoms that stem from trauma. This includes panic attacks, insomnia, or low self-esteem. Barbara also practices thoughts-based therapy modalities, teaching clients how to avoid the cognitive distortions that lead to negative emotions, including negative self-talk.
Barbara earned a Master’s degree in Counseling from Southeastern University. She enjoys working with clients who are motivated to grow their mental health through consistent therapy, and creates a space where clients feel comfortable talking openly about their emotional needs.
