Babbi Winegarden, PhD

I specialize in working with life issues that range from general coping to the management of stressful and significant life events. I have a variable approach to psychotherapeutic work, including traditional forms of psychotherapy such as cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic work as well as more non-traditional forms, such as working with chakras, past lives, and energy healing work. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my clients individual needs to help attain the personal growth they’re striving for. It is my belief that we have this one life to live – whether it is one life of many or the only one. And it is our job together to help the soul achieve the tasks set for this life’s journey.
