Barbara R. Rauch, LCSW, BCD

I’ve had over 30 years of experience working with individuals and couples. Patients tell me I am a good listener, very empathic, have a good sense of humor, and excel at creating a safe space in my office. I enjoy the work my patients and I do together in discovering how they can make changes to bring fulfillment and meaning into their lives: personally, socially and professionally.

My areas of specialization include depression, anxiety, illness and loss, relationship problems, intergenerational conflicts, and difficulties at work. I help patients to develop a better sense of self and increased confidence; good communication skills; and recognition of what is important to them.
