Work With Me
Pschospiritual Therapist & Coach
Because I have studied and practiced in a variety of modalities, my work with individuals is highly flexible and tailored to the needs of each person. I make use of the totality of my experience and training to assess and respond to whatever is emerging. Drawing on my training and experience in various therapeutic methods as well as several of the world’s spiritual traditions, I design a program suited to an individual’s desires and capacities. The best way to discern how I can be of service to you is by scheduling a free consultation session.
Having a larger context for the ups and downs of my life has helped me stay committed to my values. Barbara’s coaching style keeps me feeling connected to all of who I am and yet challenged to take the next step. I’m amazed and grateful for her skill.
Barbara’s open spirit and keen mind embody both the form and the content of this work so beautifully, which in turn assisted me in doing the same. The result has been lasting, transformative change in my career and my relationships, which flow from an integrated sense of myself. I notice an effortless quality to my work when it flows from this deep place of transformation.

Barbara Alexander is a born teacher. Her enthusiasm for learning and growing is contagious. She has the gift for breaking down difficult concepts into understandable chunks of meaning. She is naturally reflective and consistently strives to move her own practice forward thus making her teaching credible.
I was drawn to Barbara’s class because I felt unsettled spiritually. In other words, the feeling that I know there is something more “out there” or perhaps more “within me” that is part of our world or part of what makes us all who we are, and yet I was uncomfortable with using traditional, institutionalized religion as that framework in order to get the depth of understanding that my soul seemed to crave. Her class helped to reorient myself toward the spiritual and to be more in touch with the present moment. That is priceless.
work. She presented a 4-hour workshop at our annual women’s retreat one year and we just had to have her return the next for a full weekend. I watched in awe of her keen ability to sense the needs of the group enabled her to modify her approach, material in the moment. She became one with the group and the beauty of her soul and the wisdom of her mind was shared freely and with grace.
