Meet Barb

Hi, I’m Barb Bloom, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I specialize in working with teens and young adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, identity, relationships, and the meaning of it all.  I also work with women who are navigating life's various transitions - career, personal, becoming a parent, aging.  Clients will find a safe and comfortable atmosphere where they have permission to feel all those uncomfortable feelings.  My approach is psychodynamic with a trauma informed lens.  I’m passionate about providing a space where my clients can offload everything, gain a new perspective, build confidence, learn skills, and grow to accept all their complex parts.

What is that first session going to be like?

The first time you meet with a therapist can be weird.  Here is this complete stranger asking you to share your secrets - the stuff that's really hard to talk about. How are you supposed to do that?

My role is to help you feel safe, to be someone you can trust with the hard stuff.

Here's what the first session might look like:

  • Check in to make sure you're OK

  • Chat about things that interest you

  • Review your intake paperwork

  • Answer any questions you may have

  • Begin talking about what brings you to therapy

In my experience, it takes about 4 sessions to build the trust necessary to share deeply.  If you think you are ready, let's meet!
