Are you feeling out of sorts, down in the dumps or depressed and can’t seem to shake these feeling?

For many individuals, coming to terms to these situations can be challenging and often a bit daunting. Experiencing feelings of frustration and depression will affect your daily life by impairing your thoughts and behaviors.

At times, you may be feeling so stuck that you just don’t know where to turn which leads to a greater sense of hopelessness and further fuels the downhill spiral already in progress.

Excessive worry and panic are also unhealthy conditions that interfere with basic daily functioning. Anxiety is the cousin of depression.

Be aware that there are treatment options available to slay your emotional demons and restore peace of mind. When we set out to discover the root causes of symptoms significant improvements manifest. New healthier patterns of coping are established

Engaging in the therapeutic process can help get you back on track.

You will be afforded the support you need and start on a recovery plan such that feeling better can readily begin anew.  You will be encouraged to challenge unhealthy cognitive distortions and replace them with evidence based workable solutions.


My therapy services will empower you to choose strategic steps through your personalized treatment plan geared for growth and success.

Mr. Barry gently guides you through a compassionate journey of transformation by employing the use of active listening, offering supportive feedback and welcoming your input as you reflect on your personal experiences related to your life history.

What My Clients Had to Say......

"When I would talk to Don, he would never interrupt until I was finished and then always explained things in terms that I could personally understand. He is absolutely amazing at providing insight as to why I would feel a certain way, what might be the causes, and what I could do to work on fixing the problems. Don helped me immensely and because of this I have  recommended him to friends and colleagues."
