I am a family and marriage therapist licensed in Oklahoma and Missouri with over 17 years of experience working as a family and children's therapist, and as a crisis clinician through community mental health centers. I have worked with children age 5-18 and their families with a wide range of concerns including trauma-based disoerders depression, anxiety, family relationship issues, parenting problems, ADHD, and ODD.
My therapy style is warm and interactive, straightforward, and with a bit of respectful humor. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral (specifically Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), family-directed structural therapy, client-centered, and solution-focused therapy. I prefer to come alongside a family or individual in partnership rather than to lead or dictate them through resolving their struggles.
I look forward to working with you!

Barry has been very helpful. I have only had two live chat sessions with him but I feel he understands what I am going through. He has given me great advice, examples and resources. He responds to my messages very quick!
So far my son is a huge fan of Barry. That is comforting to me & I truly believe my son benefits everytime they interact. Thanks so much for all you do!
Wonderful and kind! Always helping me see the other side of things. Never judgmental either. Feels like I’m talking to a family friend.
