Barbara Herring, LMFT

Seeking out therapy is a very heroic action in and of itself, perhaps your first proactive step into redefining your sense of self, creating a new life story, and taking a leap into the direction of self-care. If you are reading this, you may be in a state of uncertainty, or perhaps connected more deeply than you would like to be to the effects of depression, anxiety, or your daily life situations. Maybe, you are wrestling in a relationship with someone you love; perhaps, finding the words to communicate who you are and how you feel may seem unattainable and challenging at best.

My goal is to work collaboratively with my client/s to create a new empowering narrative for their lives. Holding a safe space along with my direct approach will assist in providing more clarity and positive change implementation. Teaching effective communication as well as assisting clients in languaging difficult conversations is a passion and strength.

I earned my Master's degree in Clinical Psychology with an LGBTQ+ Affirmative specialization. I am highly competent and sensitive at working with a diverse range of individuals, regardless of cultural background or where they may fall on the gender/sexuality spectrums: including intersectionality, Biracial/multiracial, and mixed couples/families.

Groups: Let's Talk about Sex: An Open and Affirming Women's Sexual Empowerment Group This group will provide a fun, safe, and brave place that women will be able to deconstruct cultural opinions about sex, love, intimacy, and femininity. We will discuss our own sexual desires, finding our voice with our partners and having conversations to develop more of a compassionate and radical acceptance of our bodies. Let us name the forces that inhibit us from living our fullest sexual lives. The group is open to all female identified individuals regardless of where you fall on the sexuality spectrum
