Headway

Barbara

Originally from France, I have been living in Colorado for the last 18 years. Prior to becoming a mental health clinician, I worked for many years with children and families in educational settings as a teacher, consultant, and trainer. I entered the mental health field working as a volunteer for a crisis hotline, attending to individuals in dire emotional need. While completing my Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I developed a passion for psychoanalysis and decided to adopt this modality of treatment as my sole clinical orientation. I began my formation as a psychoanalyst seven years ago and I have been working with adults, children and families in residential facilities, outpatient clinics and private settings ever since. I have presented papers at international conferences on topics concerning psychoanalysis and its clinic. I am currently a faculty member of the Clinical College of Colorado, where I teach theoretical and practical applications of Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis. In my private practice I provide individual and family sessions, specializing in common disorders of actual living, such as depression, anxiety, trauma, behavioral and academic difficulties. Aside from general mental health issues, my specialities also include infant mental health, prenatal and perinatal issues.
