A relationship with yourself is a system. When you start making changes in one area, it impacts the other areas of your life. Learning to be in right relationship with yourself and consider all of your parts is an important step toward healthy self-integration.
A coupleship is a system. The health of the system is based on its structure. An unhealthy system produces unhealthy results; it's not personal. Co-create a healthy union grounded in the sacredness of values, love, passion and a common path.
A family is a system. "The whole is other than the sum of its parts." - Kurt Koffka, Gestalt Psychologist. We see what we see because of our perceptual system, which influences our interpretation of the parts. We are the meaning makers of our life. We see gifts, short-comings or both. Utilize the strengths of the system and the members to enhance both.
Groups are living systems. Two or more individuals connected to one another by social relationships. The strength of the bonds linking individuals is the glue that holds the group together. It also enhances communication and supports interdependence, interaction, and shared identity, tasks and goals. Planned or emergent groups, we honor self and the unique contributions of each member within the group system.

"I want to give you a sincere THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for the ways that you have helped me since we first met. I consider myself fortunate to have found such an insightful, caring and brilliant therapist. I have had such a huge learning experience working with you so far."
"Barbara is very in tune with the needs of her clients. Working together with Barbara has led to amazing personal changes. Her understanding of human nature and process of creating life change was truly incredible. From the beginning Barbara went the extra mile to understand my needs, communicate in a way that I understood and set up goals that were achievable. Trust in Barbara and you will change your life."
"Part of why I started sessions was to prove that nothing could change my circumstances, even though on paper I could show I was doing all that I could. I told Barbara that I didn't have faith that this would be any different. She told me that this didn't matter - that I just needed to put the work in. If I needed faith, take hers for the time being. She quickly got a sense of who I was and what was going on. Happily, I'm in a much better place now and I continue to value her ability to identify patterns that take me off track and recommend ways to regain my focus and direction. If you are willing to do the work to change, Barbara will show you the most effective and productive work to do."
