Barbara Corkrean, LPC, CADCIII

My name is Barbara and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I began working in the field in 1993, working with homeless youth, then women transitioning out of the criminal justice system. I spent 15+ years working in the corporate world before returning to the field I am passionate about. Since then I’ve worked in an A/D treatment center and in community
mental health as a therapist, group facilitator, case manager, community outreach worker, and Director Designee. My work now is primarily as a mental health therapist for adults with a wide variety of challenges. I am also in the process of becoming certified as a hypnotherapist through The Wellness Institute.

Treatment Orientations

I believe we all have our own inner wisdom and guidance, and therapy is a process of getting in touch with that. Insight is valuable and yet we often need more, including a compassionate witness and guidance through the change process. I use evidence-based practices that are client-centered and Mind/Body/Spirit oriented. I have been trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, which has a
strong focus on mindfulness, acceptance and behavioral change. I also use hypnotherapy, focusing on uncovering subconscious patterns that keep us stuck in suffering, aligning with inner wisdom, and making long-lasting behavioral change. I have also been trained in Mindful Self-Compassion, MI, CBT and DBT.

I provide individual therapy to those who may be experiencing:

  • Anxiety, panic and chronic worry
  • Depression and mood disorders
  • OCD
  • ADHD
  • Grief and loss
  • Divorce and adjustment, relationship issues
  • Trauma and vicarious trauma
  • Addictions
  • Binge eating
  • Caregiver burden/burnout
