Dr. Barbara is a licensed clinical psychologist. She has worked with a variety of clients and takes an integrative approach to therapy. She received her BA in Biology from UC San Diego and her PhD from California School of Professional Psychology/Alliant International University. Prior to completing her PhD, she worked as an environmental health program manager for the Department of Defense/Navy. Dr. Barbara went on to receive a PhD in Clinical/Health Psychology from Alliant International University (AIU), with further training in hypnosis and peak performance coaching for professionals. Eventually, she ventured forth to study more transcendent subjects, such as Qi Gong, and to look at the larger meaning of life, beyond left-brained science, studying the mind-body connection in health.
Dr. Barbara uses a holistic/mind-body-spirit approach in her work with clients to help people break through barriers that are holding them back from happiness, and fulfillment. She incorporates traditional psychology methods with holistic tools, such as hypnosis, energy psychology, mindfulness and meditation, mind-body connection, life coaching, and positive psychology, to help her clients change their thoughts, actions, and behaviors to propel them toward their goals and lead a happy and fulfilling life.
