Doreen Hunt, MA OTR

occupational therapist

"As a busy, single mom (and business owner) of 2

kids...we were really struggling post-divorce with a lot of melt-downs and the kids feeling depressed. Dr. Barbara gave me amazing resources and customized coaching to help me align with my own childhood pain and apply the empathy and healing to help my own children. I highly recommend her!"

Tiana Smith


"I have consulted with Barbara to help me bring the Polyvagal Theory and the Safe and Sound Protocol into my private practice. I’ve been working with trauma my whole career (30 plus years) and I know a solid, and approachable professional when I meet one! Her enthusiasm and passion for her work is contagious. After I watched one of her recent videos I told her she reminds me of everyone’s favorite teacher. If you have a chance to work with her, don’t pass it up."
