William Barbrow (He/Him)
Let’s face it, life can be hard. It can be even more tough when you feel stuck, especially without any help. As an LPC- Associate (Supervised by Jennifer Buffalo, LPC-S, LMFT), it is my passion to help you confront these hard times and join you on your journey of overcoming barriers and challenges.
Personally, I believe winning smaller battles can lead to winning the war. Because of this, my mission is to guide you through the exploration of your challenges, identify your successes along the way, and provide evidence-based solutions that will help you take the small steps that lead to big change.
During our sessions, you will experience a judgment-free, honest, and creative environment. This helps establish a safe space where you can process your emotions, discuss your thoughts, and freely work toward your goals. Our sessions will also be collaborative in nature. Of course, we will discuss your topics of choice, but we might also dive into the topics that you would typically avoid; as long as you feel it benefits you.

A Word from your Therapist
- Therapy is more than problem-solving. It can be an intentional safe space used to learn about one’s self, challenge your perspectives, and strategically release daily frustrations together rather than on your own.
- I believe that every individual is the subject matter expert of themselves, and with a sense of connection and guidance, they can best use their personal experiences to overcome any barriers. We are all trying to do the best we can with the tools that we have been given.
- My approach is simple, I like to ensure that you are never alone in the challenges you face. I strive to ensure this by working with you to create a comfortable, open, and judgement-free space that uses our time to meet your needs.
- My cultural identity as a Latino-American originated from my Panamanian-American parents and family.
- I grew up in a non-traditional military family that held an importance on structure but also made sure to facilitate creativity and an acceptance of being an individual.
- Spiritually I like to hold space for all perspectives to be true. I was raised Roman Catholic, but personally hold more importance on the interpretation of messages across beliefs rather than actively engaging in religious practices.
- I, too, established my own relationship with mental health by previously working through bouts of self-doubt, self-worth, depression, and anxiety, which from the outside could never been seen but internally could only be characterized as a chaotic, overwhelming dysregulation of my thoughts and feelings.
