Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Barbara helps people identify and work through the destructive patterns of depression, anxiety, relationship, sexual and communication problems, grief and loss, overeating, overspending, over use of alcohol/drugs, overworking, people pleasing, rescuing, and isolating. The concerns that keep people from having the level of self-confidence, intimacy and relational experiences that are deeply satisfying meaningful. She works with individuals, couples, families and leads an ongoing group which addresses self care called “Get Real About Self Care”.

Depth Oriented Brief Therapy (DOBT) is her primary framework. DOBT is a methodology that greatly streamlines therapy. DOBT (www.dobt.com) zeros in on, the deeper specific emotional themes that maintain problems/symptoms, and leads to resolution and transformation efficiently and effectively.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
