Therapy beyond the couch

“Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems most challenging.”

– Joseph Campbell

"Therapy Beyond the Couch" Means...

Innovative, individualized approach that integrates cutting edge holistic, alternative and creative
techniques to go beyond traditional talk therapy

Convenient, confidential, online, on your time! Super secure and easy to use video therapy.

Art Therapy: When words aren’t enough, an alternative or addition to
verbal therapies.

Corporate Arts & Wellness workshops bring the healing to you, with our customized, on-site employee wellness workshops.

Tell me if any of these sound like YOU:

  • Successful, driven, a high achiever. So, WTF,
    why don’t you feel that way? From the outside, you appear to “have it all.” But success can come with its own unique challenges, and sometimes the most successful people feel the most trapped in their lives.
  • Overwhelmed by unresolved or vicarious trauma
    that holds you back from functioning your best and being fully present in your life.
  • Disconnected, imbalanced, emotionally numb.
    You’re unsure of what’s wrong or how to define it, but with everything you’ve accomplished you “should” feel happy.
  • Stuck in a groove,
    just going through the motions of the day-to-day on autopilot without really enjoying your life and your accomplishments.
  • Chronically worried,
    exhausted from putting out the fires in your head and even with all of your accomplishments that inner critic tells you that you are an imposter.
  • Facing a life crisis or major transition
    and you just feel… Derailed, unmoored and sick of pretending everything’s OK.
  • Too damn busy to begin therapy
    so you’ve hesitated — You’re a mover and a shaker, an action-taker, so why don’t you invest in yourself?
  • Tried therapy before but you’re looking for something different,
    an alternative to traditional “couch therapy.”

Nina Barbieri ATR-P

Allowing yourself to receive help and guidance in a time of challenge/overwhelm is a sign of strength. Sometimes support looks like leaning on family and friends, other times it involves professional assistance. If you feel like the needs of your wellbeing have surpassed your inner support system, it may be time to seek therapy. It’s not easy to seek help- I understand the commitment and courage it can take to sit with one’s emotions and be vulnerable. I honor that in my work so that you never feel alone in this process.
