My name is Barbara C. White. I am a Psychotherapist who offers individual counseling services to adults. Below is some information about me and my practice that may be helpful before you call or come in for an appointment.

About Me:

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been in private practice since 1999.

My style is a conversational talk therapy. I do my best work when I can listen a lot. The more I listen, the more able I am to identify themes and patterns that may arise in your life. Sometimes these patterns are beneficial, other times these patterns can block growth and change. I work closely with you to identify and strengthen what is working well. I always consider you to be the expert on yourself and frequently check in to be sure I am understanding and hearing you correctly. Using my listening skills, I am often able to hear ideas and thoughts that arise from your unconscious thought processes that may be affecting your day to day experience.  I use my intuition and humor to keep the sessions flowing.

I love my work and have an endless curiosity about people’s lives. I like to switch back and forth from the big picture, to find what guides you in your life, to the small picture, to find what guides you through the day. I suggest practical solutions that may ease your way through the daily challenges life offers.
