Convenient, private online counseling. Anytime, anywhere.
Many things can get in the way of living well - relationship conflict, confusion about direction or purpose, grief, a bad work environment, parenting challenges, divorce, illness and more.
Why we feel and act the way we do can be confusing and often depressing.
I believe we have everything we need to meet life's challenges, but sometimes we need help identifying the things that are holding us back and finding the strengths that will move us forward. You and I will work together to remove those roadblocks and create a life that's aligned with YOUR dreams, YOUR choices, and YOUR goals.
We can hold our sessions anytime, any place, by computer, tablet or phone. We'll use Zoom, FaceTime, Skype or phone calls to connect at a time that's convenient for you. I work with individuals, couples and families.
"Barbara was truly a beacon for me. Following an extremely traumatic life event, my sessions with Barbara helped me effectively manage issues of self-doubt and grief so that I could try to understand how to more positively live and thrive with my children and aging parents, and go on to be a happier, well-rounded adult. I can't recommend her highly enough. Her non-judgmental , empathetic support were absolutely crucial to my recovery." Elizabeth F., former client.
"I've worked with Barbara for over 10 years, and feel strongly that she's got the right combination of compassion, knowledge and skills. Her abilities to counsel and support chronically ill clients, clients with relationship issues, or coach people needing career direction and goals is excellent. I'd recommend her to anyone!" Jillian Worth, MD
"Barbara worked with people from my practice with rheumatic illnesses, including chronic pain, and we presented a seminar about fibromyalgia at a national meeting. Her thoughtful, open and engaged communication, always with a smile, was a real gift to my patients and her colleagues." Steven S. Overman, MD MPH, Professor of Clinical Medicine, University of Washington. Co-author with Joy Selak, You Don't LOOK Sick: Living Well with Chronic Invisible Illness.
"With gratitude I can say that Barbara played a key role in helping me navigate the end of my marriage and an unusually difficult divorce. Her insight into personality also gave our Guardian ad Litem a clear sense of the challenges our children face, and her advice helped me keep them safe through the process." Ajay A,. former client
"As a Family Law Attorney, I have been privileged to work with Barbara Mills in cases involving individuals and families experiencing the challenges of divorce. Barbara has demonstrated her many skills, professionalism and ethics in providing guidance and support for those who seek her assistance." John H. McGilliard, Attorney at Law
I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Humanities from New College of California in San Francisco, and a Master of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Seattle Pacific University, Seattle, WA. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Washington State. As a coach, I work with clients in any state and internationally. Additional specialties include postgraduate certification in Medical Family Therapy and Divorce Coaching, and family mediation training from the University of Washington Law School Foundation.
I bring numerous personal and professional experiences to my practice, including divorce coaching with complicated family dynamics, medical collaboration with patients and families dealing with serious illness, domestic violence victim advocacy in communities and courts, and serving more Cokes and coffee than I can count as a former flight attendant for Delta Air Lines!
I am married with two children, two step-children and a darling granddaughter. When out and about, I'm usually accompanied by my dog, Leila.
Sessions are $115 for one hour. Importantly, I believe that cost shouldn't be an impediment to receiving therapy, so fee reductions are available based on need. I'm available to connect by email or text between sessions at no extra charge. Payment is preferred through Venmo or Zelle (please ensure that your privacy settings are set to private). If you prefer, you can mail a check to me at the address below.
