Barbara Drimmelen


As a licensed Clinical Psychologist, I have worked with families, individuals and couples for over 20 years. I encourage individuals to identify their goals for seeking therapy, to understand their coping strategies and distinguish those which are effective and those that don't serve them well. I also encourage clients to explore the role of emotions in their lives and how those feelings influence their decision making. Ultimately in my role as therapist, I seek to be an ally in helping individuals, couples and families move toward a more balanced and satisfying life.

Recently I have become acutely aware of the challenges that face my clients as a result of a rapidly changing society. Not only are individuals struggling to cope with their own inner challenges, but also with constantly evolving social expectations where the rules they took for granted no longer apply

Experience with *Helping individuals find the balance between work and home. *Supporting those adjusting to life transitions, including coping with raising children as they mature from early childhood to young adulthood *Helping those who are coping with chronic illness, divorce or retirement. * Supporting those struggling with work related stress disorders.
