Barb Perkins

LCSW, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

A therapist can help process aspects of your life that are getting in the way of contentment.  My primary therapy modalities are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Relational Life Therapy (RLT) along with an interpersonal neurobiology informed approach. Much of therapy is recognizing internal signals of your limbic system (danger brain) and finding ways to decrease that response in instances where you aren’t in danger.

We begin with an in-depth assessment of your goals, strengths, and desired focus. As your consultant, I provide you with the scaffolding and resources that are evidenced-based and you decide what works for you to put into practice.  I work with adults 18 and up. Note: I am a TELEHEALTH only provider with very few exceptions.  

I have worked in health and mental health agencies for over 25 years. I am trauma informed. Should you choose my practice, I provide respectful, thoughtful care.
