Barbara is a licensed professional counselor with a Master’s in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, a Juris Doctor from DePaul University College of Law and a Bachelor of Arts from Columbia College. She is a certified Illinois Domestic Violence Professional and trained in working with survivors of interpersonal trauma. Barbara has created and led workshops on navigating life transitions, cultivating self compassion, and finding hope in troubling times. Her Master’s thesis explored how the archetypal experience of a dark night of the soul can lead individuals to finding meaning, purpose and a deeper connection with life.

Barbara helps adults who are dealing with issues surrounding depression, anxiety, grief and loss, life transitions, relationship challenges and questions of identity and vocation. Her approach is grounded in the teachings of Carl Jung which sees symptoms not as a failure of the individual or as something to be silenced, but as the call of the soul for the emergence of new possibilities, a healing of inner wounds, and the integration of parts of the self that have been repressed or discarded. Barbara loves exploring dreams, archetypes, myth and fairy tales with her clients.

Qualifications:   Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Master’s Degree in Social Welfare and a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work

Specialties:  Spirituality, Relationship Issues, Life Transitions, Addiction, Codependency, Self Esteem, Stress

Client Focus:  Adults: Bisexual Allied, Gay Allied, Heterosexual Allied, Lesbian Allied

I have come to understand emotions as allies, inviting us to live our most authentic and creative lives. By engaging in therapy we pick up the tools necessary to do “the Work”. Fortunately pain is an excellent teacher precisely because it gets our attention. I assure you the struggle you’re experiencing now is guiding you. Struggle is a bonafide indication of real and important progress. If you’re trying to gain traction, but don’t remember how, I am here to help you move forward and heal from within.

The butterfly develops through a process called metamorphosis; a Greek word meaning a change in shape. Indeed, we can say that when we successfully confront and overcome a difficult challenge we are emotionally transformed. It is necessary to understand the stages of change so we are realistic with our expectations of ourselves.

The pain of the world, and of this current time, reminds us we are not in control. Yet we have access to great inner strength that can transform ourselves and our world. I am a Psychotherapist who specializes in grief and loss, life transitions, depression and anxiety. The focus of my work has been to help people find their spiritual center from which everything flows and so become more effective in relationships as members of family, at work, and in community.

If you’re hoping to find someone who can help you move through a situation or crisis in your life and move toward greater health and personal transformation, I might be the right person for you to talk to. I continue to learn as much from my own journey of personal transformation as I have through my counseling degree and certifications in Counseling. I graduated in 2015 with an MA in Counseling from Loyola University in Chicago and am now training to be an analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago.

My clients say that I’m gentle, empathic, and caring; colleagues say I’m insightful and easy to be around; and I refer to myself as committed to the psychological and spiritual care of my clients.

I recognize the importance of the therapeutic relationship in the healing process and therefore encourage an initial consultation to determine if I might be there right therapist for you.

My focus is on clients who are relatively high functioning, but who happen to be experiencing the types of issues and challenges that commonly present themselves, particularly relationship issues, developmental (e.g., adolescent and young adult) issues, mid-life (“second half of life”) issues, career and occupational issues, and issues involving meaning and purpose in life. I work with individual clients–adults and adolescents–as well as with couples and families. My therapeutic approach is best suited to clients who are highly motivated, anxious and willing to change, and committed to undertaking the difficult work of exploring their inner self. My graduate training is in pastoral counseling, which recognizes not only the psychological, but also the spiritual, dimension of human beings. I serve as adjunct faculty at Loyola University Chicago, where I both teach and counsel graduate students. I am a licensed clinical professional counselor and a certified Jungian Psychotherapist. My orientation is holistic: I work from an integrated–mind, body, spirit–perspective. My therapeutic approach, which incorporates dream analysis, recognizes the role of the unconscious and the inherent potential of each person to realize his or her authentic Self.

A therapist in private practice, I trained as a pastoral counselor through the Institute of Pastoral Studies at Loyola University Chicago; my license is LCPC To my counseling practice I bring many years experience as an educator of teens and young children, as well as reunification work with families affected by incarceration. My experience also includes facilitating groups to address domestic violence for survivors and for batterers along with groups for people in recovery from substance abuse. Additionally, I am a Benedictine sister; I value life in my monastic community, praying together and sharing daily experience with about forty sisters, seeking God in all.

As a therapist, I journey with people seeking to rekindle a spark of the divine within, a source to heal their inner selves or themselves in relationship with significant others. When people find they’ve gotten out of right relationship with themselves, with those close to them, or with the larger community, we work together to find the way to a more abundant life, using methods that work best for them in their situation, such as guided imagery, mindfulness, non-violent communication, journaling, storytelling, or dreamwork, along with observing and exploring behaviors, thoughts, and feelings they may want to change.

My clients are families, couples and individuals – from adolescents to elders. We do our work in English or Spanish language on a range of concerns: depression, family conflict, trauma, anxiety, coping skills, peer relationships, spirituality, career counseling, parenting, self-esteem, substance abuse, mood disorders, personality disorders, personal growth, and family reunification.

I am particularly interested in how the spiritual and psychological dimensions of the individual psyche interconnect and contribute to the potential for healing and wholeness. My approach to therapy is relational as well as psychodynamic. I understand the relationship between therapist and client to be one of the most important factors in the healing process.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with a Masters degree in Counseling as well as a Masters in Pastoral Studies, both from Loyola University, Chicago. I am a graduate of the Clinical Training Program (CTP), a two year certification program in Jungian Analytical Psychotherapy from the Jung Institute of Chicago and have completed Basic Training in EMDR through Argosy University, Chicago.

I have previously served as Clinic Therapist and Intake Coordinator and currently as a Volunteer Therapist , Clinic Committee member, and Board of Trustees member at The C. G.

I utilize dreams, active imagination, and mindfulness/mind-body modalities. I have experience working with depression, anxiety, stress management, relationship issues, life transitions, self-esteem issues, loss/grief, spiritual issues, and trauma/sexual abuse/PTSD.
