Barbara is a sculptress and has learned through her experience of art , that, art is a powerful healer. She has just completed her Art Therapy Certification and is exploring how the techniques of art and Bioenergetics meld together to heal. Both techniques make conscious the unconscious and free up repressed material so that the individual can claim back parts of the self. This frees the energy for more aliveness and pleasure.

"I have been a therapist for over twenty years.  Through these years of psychotherapy it has been my honor to help individuals find answers and healing to their problems. I am dedicated to the process of psychotherapy, knowing that growth can happen with motivation, courage, safety and support."
