“I have a strong belief in people and their ability to change and grow. Overcoming my own traumas, through a combination of various therapies and a strong spiritual practice reassured me of these beliefs. After many years of specializing in these areas, I have found that the extent to which people can transform and improve their personal and professional lives still amazes me. All it takes is guidance and the desire to thrive at your fullest potential." --Barry Herbach LCSW
After going through my own personal exploration and healing, I have developed a holistic approach to therapy. Holistic to me means paying attention to your emotional well-being, your body and your spiritual life. I have found that when I am working on all three, I get the best results out of my life.
Your perspective on where you fit in the world is greatly enhanced by having a spiritual belief and practice. This of course is optional, and the way you practice really does not matter. I have simply found that it has helped me heal and move past old wounds and has made the tough times go smoother.
It is always your next move.
My approach to therapy is very directive. This means that I frequently provide feedback and suggestions. My approach is a good fit for you if you're looking for someone to help you focus your priorities, get unstuck, manage your career or overcome issues that are keeping you from thriving. While I believe that learning about your past is important for gaining insight into your motives, I think what is very important is how you are going to change things for the better. When you work with me, you are working with someone who will help you set goals and achieve them. This means you can expect quicker results with a little less theory.
