Barb has over 40 years of experience providing counseling, training and support services to children and adults in a variety of educational, mental health and church settings. She has been Licensed in Texas as a Professional Counselor since 1990. As a committed life-long learner recently completed training for certification as a master practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), an approach to communication and personal development that utilizes the connection between neurological processes, language and behavioral patterns learned through experience to promote positive change and achieve specific life goals. Having begun her professional career as a teacher of deaf children, she has conversational sign language skills. Barb is comfortable providing counseling services for individuals from Kindergarten age through one’s golden age as a senior citizen. She has worked with individuals, couples and families to help as they navigate their journeys through a wide variety of life challenges. Some specific areas of interest include: assisting couples to create more effective communication and increased experiences of joy with one other; “being there” for people going through grief related to loss of a loved one or other major life changes (divorce, health, career, etc.) and when the time is right, helping them to envision and move toward what is next; implementing effective parenting strategies; supporting parents of children with special needs, including adoptive parents of children with attachment issues; supporting care-givers of loved ones with dementia; and walking hand-in-hand with members of the LGBTQ community and/or their families. Barb and her husband, Mel, have been blessed with a fulfilling marriage for more than 40 years. They have 3 adult children — their birth-son as well as their two youngest who were initially their niece and nephew fostered as infants until their adoption when preschoolers. Barb and Mel are active members at St. Matthew United Methodist Church in Fort Worth.
In 1990, I became a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the State of Texas, License #10317. I have been providing counseling, training, evaluation and support services to children and adults in a variety of educational, mental health and church settings for decades. My goal is to help those who want to improve their lives through therapy and/or who wish to provide such an opportunity for their children. To do so, it is imperative to create a safe environment that is collaborative and encourages problem-solving and decisive thinking skills at each individual’s developmental level. I believe in providing a welcoming environment — one that accommodates a variety of learning styles and encourages individuals to express themselves while respecting the opinions of others. It is my belief that this style of therapy and relationship development enriches personal experiences, knowledge and skill-development. As a result of experiencing a growth-inspiring environment in which it is safe to explore options and practice new skills, individuals will more likely take responsibility for their own lives and apply their therapeutic learning experiences to real-life situations. At the core, therapy is about the relationship between the client and the therapist as well as an individual’s desire and willingness to move toward and ultimately create positive changes in their own life.
I utilize an integrated and somewhat eclectic approach to counseling, attempting to meet individuals where they are and to facilitate them to chart their course and move toward where they want to be instead. I employ narrative, cognitive-behavioral, play-based and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) strategies. NLP is an approach to communication and personal development that utilizes the connection between neurological processes, language and behavioral patterns learned through experience to promote positive change and achieve specific life goals.
