Barbara comes to us from Colorado where she spent most of her career in the legal field. She spent 10 years assisting with sexual assault and domestic violence victims working for the District Attorney’s office as a Victim Assistant Specialist. Afterward she transitioned into the probation field and began managing offenders as a probation officer. She spent the next 12 years in the probation department primarily working with offenders with dual diagnosis addiction.
In 2018 Barb moved to the Upper Valley, New Hampshire/Vermont and received her Licensed Drug and Alcohol License. She encourages self-awareness, mindfulness and compassion. She is certified in the “Strategies for Self-Improvement and Change”, which she has introduced to the probation and parole department of New Hampshire. Barb can meet the client where they are in their recovery and is educated and experienced in addictions. She is ready to help anyone find their motivation for recovery.
