Hi there! My name is Sarah Barry and I'm currently a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Louisiana as well as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the State of Montana. I received my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Counseling from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in May of 2016. I love my job of being a helper as I see immense strengths and progress from my clients throughout their counseling journey. I've worked with children as young as 4 and adults until end of life. I have experience in juvenile corrections, adult corrections, family counseling, couples as well as individual counseling. I am trained in the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy model and have years of experience in working with Anxiety Disorders, Depression Disorders, Grief, Post-Partum struggles for new mothers (and fathers) as well as Eating Disorders. In my current practice, I work with patient's to address Thinking Errors and Negative Core beliefs that contribute to continued symptoms of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and overall stress. I firmly believe that we as human beings were made with the utmost of care by God the Father and created in His image. We are worthy of love regardless of our past mistakes and/or choices we've made within our lives.
I have found working in this field that there is a common misconception of therapy having to be months or years long process. It can be long term depending on the issue at hand, however my goal as your counselor is to work with you and give you the skills and tools necessary for your own success. If you feel my training and education would be a good fit for your journey, I would love the opportunity to work with you.
