Barbara Blocker


About Me

I have been in the behavioral healthcare arena for the past 30+ years, first as a Psychiatric RN and then as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Specialty areas include: Women's Issues, Relationship Issues, Couples Therapy, Grief and Loss, Successful Life Transition, Successful Problem Solving Coaching, Goal Setting, Life After a Loss Due to a Death of a Loved One or Pet.

In all of these issues, the one common denominator is that resolving them does not happen in a vacuum. Relationships with spouses, partners, parents, siblings, friends, bosses, etc. all play a crucial part in clearing roadblocks to connections with those we most care about.

To that end, in every setting that I have worked in, relationship counseling is a tool that I turn to, without fail, to help the person that I am working with to heal, grow, and reclaim the right to a happy, fulfilling life that works for them and helps them flourish.

For those of you seeking support in working with people in your life in a successful way that leads to happy connections with others, I look forward to guiding you to find what connected you in the first place, and building on that to create an unbreakable bond that can only strengthen with time. Together we can identify what is strong in your relationship and strengthen what is not working for you any longer.

Barbara takes time with us and does not try to rush the process. She follows up each session with her own notes and assigns actions which is quite helpful. Still on the journey but better than when we started for sure. Thank you Barbara.

Barb has been wonderful ... she helped to make us feel at ease and prioritizes issues. She is comforting, optimistic ... yet blunt and honest when needed. I feel she has our best interests at heart and although there is a lot of despair with all we are going through, there is more hope having someone with her expertise to counsel us.
