These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Shari Barfield. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.
My first session with Dr. Barfield was great. It was only 45 minutes long and I felt so good afterwards. She was a good listener and made me feel heard. I really am looking forward to our next session.
She listens and gives me constructive advice. She relates without faking it.
Is amazing and would love to see her again
She is a good therapist.
My first meeting with Dr. Shari was what I needed to weed out the different voices in my head and listen to my own intuition about a dating situation. I felt heard and validated. It was such an easy process to get in touch and set up an appointment with her.
Dr. Shari is so very kind and patient with my boyfriend and me! She makes us think but also makes us laugh. This is my bf’s first experience with therapy, and Dr. Shari is making it an experience that he appreciates rather than avoids. ❤️
