About Barbara Hayes, MFT

Are you or your teenager dealing with anxiety, depression, or negative behaviors due to stress from life’s transitions or difficult relationships? I use techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy and other therapies to provide both short-term relief as well as long-term resolution of these issues. By learning effective coping and communication skills and challenging negative thoughts, clients can reduce their suffering and increase their positive feelings. I have had many clients tell me that they started feeling better within a few weeks and that they had hope for the first time. Through the use of mindfulness techniques and compassion, clients are able to further increase their sense of well-being.
