Whether you are looking for therapy or coaching, healing is one step away. You can live the life you want. An abundance of love is already inside you, and I offer my hand as your guide to its discovery.
S e r v i c e s
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Certified Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapist, I can help you on your path of healiing and self discovery. Together we can discover the power that already resides within you, your inner healer. Our work together can help promote clarity and perspective, as well as giving you the opportunity to connect deeper to yourself. The power to heal and grow exists within you and I am honored to support your journey towards balance and wholeness. Currently, I am focused on psychedelic services including education, preparation, and integration. I offer in office Ketamine lozenge sessions as well as in clinic IM, and IV Ketamine sessions. I also provide Life Coaching and therapist mentoring, and I am in the process of developing a program for practitioners interested in hands on Ketamine experiential retreats. If you are interested, please contact me for more information.
My goal is to see you achieve your dreams and maximize your full potential. Whether you need clarity or action, a custom plan is designed specifically with you in mind, aiming to identify the challenges you are facing in your life and help you achieve more balance and clarity. Coaching is different than therapy but has similarities. There are many forms of coaching, including accountability, confidence, career, mental health, wellness, psychedelic and spiritual topics. Together we will determine which type of coaching is right for you and develop a path forward.
Marriage & Family Counseling
Whether you are struggling in a relationship, looking to build self awareness, or hoping to overcome your struggles, speaking to an empathetic and experienced professional can help. As a licensed MFT, I want to see you thrive and succeed in your goals and relationships. I routinely use concepts of IFS, ACT, and DBT models, among others, depending on your specific needs. A strong therapeutic alliance is the foundation of my work and I ground myself in self care and mindfulness based routines and rituals, which I will share with you.
I am a certified Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapist (KAP) and I am specially trained in Psychedelic Assisted Therapy (PAT). My goal is to educate you on the safe and responsible use of psychedelics and to support you before, during, and after your experiences. Psychedelic medicines create increased neuroplasticity in the brain, which offers the opportunity for emotional and spiritual healing. Preparation and integration are key in getting the results you want and can enhance cognitive flexibilty, and help create meaningful and lasting outcomes.

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit my site. I take a mind, body, soul approach to healing and self-discovery. My goal is to see you create and achieve the best version of yourself, and reach your highest potential. My approach is individualized and grounded in mindfulness to promote healing and well-being. When combined with psychedelic therapy, we explore different avenues, on a deeper level. Psychedelics can help access a deeper self-knowledge, promoting a more integrated being. While Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) introduces you to non-ordinary states of consciousness, mindfulness offers a set of tools to enhance awareness, presence, and self-reflection. When combined, both KAP and mindfulness are potential paths to heightened states of consciousness and overall feelings of well being.
Psychedelics can be a useful tool on your path inwards. There is no "one size fits all" approach to KAP/PAT. Each experience is unique. As a certified Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapist and trained Psychedelic Assisted Therapist (PAT), I promote a supportive container in which to explore your "parts" and inner healing abilities. While I do not provide any type of psychedelic medicine directly, I am trained in helping ensure that you are using the medicine safely and with intention. My role is harm reduction, emotional support, coaching, and integration. I can help you build your intentions around the medicine and help guide/coach you before, during and after your experience. Set and setting, as well as support and integration are key to your experience and I am honored to be your coach and guide as we walk this path together.
Currently, I am focused on my Ketamine and psychedelic private practice. I offer lozenge experiences in my office, or IM or IV clinic treatments in Reno or Truckee, CA. My role is to guide you through your Ketamine process and help you maximize the outcome. I also offer multiple integration circles monthly for support and further integration. Through Kensho Wellbeing (www.kenshowellbeing.com), we are offering group Ketamine retreat experiences, appropriate for clients or practitioners. In Reno, I am currently creating a psychedelic mentoring and training experience for practitioners. Please contact me for more information.
I have experience with people of all ages and backgrounds, and I enjoy working with a diverse clientele. I often incorporate addittional resources from practitioners in the local community that I feel might be beneficial to your treatment. My goal is to promote a collaborative, supportive, and non-judgmental space to honor your highest self, explore your options, and develop lasting results. Contact me today to discover the possibilities.
I struggled with depression and PTSD for my entire life, and it seemed as though I had tried everything. My life has changed for the better since I’ve started seeing Barbara. She cares about her patients and goes above and beyond to make sure they’re getting the treatment they need. Barbara gives you the tools to cope so that you can help yourself through difficult times unlike therapy I’ve done in the past where the patients seem to become dependent on constant therapy. Don’t hesitate to be open and she will transform your life.
