Discover a Path to Mental Wellness

My 4-step pre-counseling process ensures that I am the right match for your needs, providing you with the support and guidance you need to rediscover joy and fulfillment in your life.

Create a safe space

The objective of this first session is to do just that. We will review the paperwork, including the intake form, my practice policies, financial form, and the HIPAA document that you completed prior to our first session, and I will take time to answer any questions that you have regarding any of these documents. 

Get to know each other

I’ll ask you about your reasons for seeking treatment, what your goals or expectations are, and what you are looking for in a counselor. I will be happy to answer any questions that you may have for me regarding my counseling style, what you can expect from me regarding your treatment, and any pertinent information that can help you make an informed decision of whether or not I am the best counselor for your needs.

Qualify if we’re the right fit

While I strive to provide the best counseling services available, I understand that sometimes I might not be the best professional fit for what someone needs, and that is completely okay. If, at the end of the session, you feel that I cannot meet your needs, please let me know and I will be happy to work with you to identify a referral that may be a better fit.

Schedule your session

 If you decide to continue services with me, then we will schedule your next session and begin working on your goals for treatment. If you have any further questions or concerns feel free to contact me and I will gladly answer them for you.

Hi, I'm Barbara.

Are you struggling with emotional pain? Do you feel confused, lost, and alone? As a therapist, I see my role as a guide and a partner in a healing journey.  When given the right direction, tools, and environment, we have  more healing power within us than we know. I’ve named my practice Tranquility Counseling because I hope to offer a space of peacefulness, calm, and safety – one in which I help my clients create and replicate for themselves as their journey progresses.

I help clients by listening to their stories and understanding how and when their symptoms come up. Because of my training, I am able to help identify patterns and help locate triggers that sometimes may be connected to some past event or belief.  I also use EMDR which is a technique that can help individuals process trauma-related memories and feelings and learn how to regulate strong emotions.

I have experience in treating addiction, having worked in intensive outpatient facilities and residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. I have training and experience working with victims of sexual assault and abuse. As a trauma survivor, I can relate to how difficult the healing process is to start but also how utterly transformational it can be.

Now, when can we start your journey to feeling better?
