Deirdra Barrios, MA


Associate Marriage and Family Therapist [pending]

Supervised by Tiffany Naumann, Psy.D # 51595


I believe everyone deserves support processing heavy emotions, as they are generally connected to traumatic memories. Deeper understanding of our body’s trauma processes always helps, and I support anxiety, depression, relationship issues in collaboration so accurate understanding grows confidence.

Processing emotions heals trauma, and once emotional distress is resolved we can build new pathways for growth. I use these convictions to actively listen and collaboratively explore thoughts while disrupting habits like looping thoughts.  This approach also helps self expression be more confident.

Healing is a journey, and we all deserve a guide. I support individuals, families, and youth using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Somatic Therapy, Solution Focused, Therapy, Family Systems and Mindfulness techniques. I am honored to be a part of growURpotential’s mission to liberate hearts so clients reach their highest potential and desired outcomes.
