I have a variety of options to work with you. If you are looking for goal oriented options, coaching may be a better fit for you. If you are looking for something different that isn’t talk therapy, Reiki or Distance Reiki may be a better fit for you. If you are looking for talk therapy, counseling is probably a better fit for you. Chances are, if you’ve had a chance to explore my website, you’ve gotten to know me a little bit. If you feel like I would be a good fit, that is awesome. I will be happy to have that talk. Check out some of the things (listed below) that we offer, if you want more of a catered (a combination of a variety of different things) experience, give me a holler and we can work something out. 

Online/In Person Counseling Services

What is online counseling services? It is a HIPAA compliant platform that I use for seeing you online. In plain English, it is a video chat program similar to Skype, where you and I meet face to face to explore your situation. Remember when I was talking about all of the things you are going through with anxiety? Online counseling service allows you to visit me from anywhere. It means that when it's snowing, raining, your kids are sick, you're on vacation, family in town, have to work late at your job, whatever life throws at you, you and I can still meet. It means that your progress is important to me, and we are not going to let anything stand in your way. I still offer the same incredible opportunity for growth in person as well :).

Reiki/Reiki Distance services

Let’s be real.  Sometimes, there are times when talk therapy isn’t for you. There are other ways of working on the trauma and anxiety. When humans suffer from anxiety or trauma, they tend to hold tension in certain parts of their bodies. Everybody and everything is made up of energy. Everybody is made up of atoms and energy is what holds those atoms together. Everyone has an energy field around them. Reiki works with your energy to heal and relax the tension that you hold onto. Distance Reiki is tapping into that energy, kind of like my computer tapping into the internet signal. If you would like to heal past wounds, check out what other people are saying about the Distance Reiki:

Kathryn S.- “Barbara was absolutely amazing during our remote Reiki session today! I asked her to focus on balancing my chakras and some relationship issues that I had been dealing with. It took about 5-7 minutes for me to completely relax. After that, I felt a lot of connection to my solar plexus and heart chakra specifically. I also kept seeing in my mind’s eye a beautiful golden loving energy moving through each of my energy centers. Sooooo amazing!!!!!!”

Steph M.- “It felt amazing to have such a relaxing setting. Barbara explain[ed] to me the process and play[ed] such amazing music during the session. It was very nice to arise from Reiki with more spunk and energy then I went into it with!”

anger management

Have you noticed that your anger and your anxiety tend to go hand in hand? When your anxiety spikes, your anger is right there along with you. Somehow, it seems as though you continually hurt your loved ones and you don't know how to stop. You are ready to change but don't know quite how to get started. 

You lash out when things happen and are not sure where to begin with piecing your relationships back together, because even though you say sorry and promise that it's not going to happen again, it does. When it does, it eats you up inside. 

Your anxiety affects relationships with your family and friends, and it is causing your family and friends to push you away. They don't want to deal with the constant blow ups. 

You haven't thought about the life that you could truly live if you were no longer tied to this invisible, soul sucking, dehumanizing thing called anxiety. Because, isn't it something you have to live with for the rest of your life? 

The thought of having the audacity to even CONSIDER living your life without having your soul sucking situation, never mind being able to enjoy your friends and family, and to actually not have to worry about your anger taking over the situation ever again. wouldn't dare to even dream it. 

Like I said, it's just not for you... OR IS IT? The good news is that if you really want to change, it is TOTALLY possible, and I can help. In 30 Days to Control Your Anger, you can finally find out productive ways to work through your anger and finally stop ruining your relationships.
