Barbie Blair, MA, LPC (#77818)
In my practice, I am client-centered and use a holistic approach. I will put you and your needs first while addressing all the factors contributing to your troubles and hindering the fulfillment of your goals. I am also a trauma-informed clinician who is passionate about treating the underlying distress often contributing to the depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and interpersonal issues experienced. Talking about the past is not always easy, however, so I will always work at your pace with your well-being in mind.
As an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) trained clinician, I help clients process through negative memories. I have witnessed first-hand the powerful
transformations and peace that can be found through EMDR when clients are ready. I am also trained in CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) and can use this technique to help you better understand and change your thinking patterns that may be negatively impacting your life.
Reaching out for help is the hardest part; you are already brave for making it this far! I hope I can help you in your unique journey toward personal growth and healing in whatever ways you need. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
