About Barry

Experiencing pain often occurs when the stories you tell yourself—about who you are, who you care about, and the world around you—no longer make sense. This can signal an opportunity for growth, yet it may also feel jarring and disorienting. If you're hesitant to face these challenges alone, that's perfectly natural. I'm here to support you through this journey.

Taking the first step by reading this bio is commendable! Together, we'll explore the best ways for you to navigate and understand your experiences. We'll examine what's worked for you in the past and what hasn't. I believe that by cultivating presence, you can heighten your awareness and access more choices, ultimately finding freedom. Whether you have a clear vision of your journey or not, we can talk about it. Let's delve into your identity, desires, coping mechanisms, emotions, thoughts, relationships, and more.

My professional background encompasses a variety of settings, including in-home support, transitional living facilities, higher education counseling, and spiritual wellness. These diverse experiences have shown me that while we share this world together, each person’s experience is unique. Providing a safe space for you to explore and make sense of your own journey is invaluable.

I focus on supporting adults ages 18+ across a range of areas.

My goal is to empower you to navigate life's challenges with confidence. I approach our work with acceptance, compassion, and safety, considering you as a whole person—mind, body, and spirit. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to your journey; together, we’ll explore your path to freedom.
