What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. I believe counseling may be best understood as a collaboration that seeks to resolve your issues and concerns.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

My name is Barbara Sims-King. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Pastoral Counselor with over 20 years of experience. I have success working with those who are suffering from the effects of depression, anxiety, anger, trauma and grief. My current focus is with men aged 18 and up gaining emotional insight to life's challenges. When life gets the "better" of us, it may appear that life has won the fight and we have lost. Life is not the enemy, life is just life and as a counselor, I find that my job is to lift up hope as a beacon light to those seeming to be floundering in a sea of circumstances. The light comes with encouragement, support, and an unfailing belief in the good of humankind. Let me join you on the journey to healing, towards a celebration of your life. Schedule your first appointment with me today! (Barbara utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-focused therapy (TFT), and relationship treatment perspectives that best match the goals of the client.)
