You are the author of your life. Why re-write the past when you can start living the most exciting and fulfilling chapters of your personal story RIGHT NOW?
Licensed Professional Counselor, author and founder of BJP Counseling Barbara Peters is putting the proverbial pen into the hands of her clients so they can create their own version of “happily ever after.”
“If you’ve made the decision to get counseling, then you’ve already taken the first step toward empowering yourself to make meaningful change in your life. Your relationship is the one thing supposed to last forever, long after the kids have moved out and the career has ended. It is the only thing that will stand the test of time.”‘
Honesty + Trust = Results
Barbara’s collaborative and supportive style of therapy starts with truth. Personal truth.
“I’m as authentic as they come, so I encourage the same from my clients,” Barbara says. “That dynamic of honesty and trust between counselor and client is vital to the success of the counseling process. When you can strip away self-doubt and defenses and come to a session with a genuine desire to work through an issue, there is a 100% guarantee of positive change. I get that commitment consistently from my clients, and in return, my clients get the results they need.”
Barbara offers a nurturing, confidential environment for her clients with common sense, solution focused counseling and support. She focuses on the positive aspects of the relationship. What was, no longer is, and all effort is on the here and now creating a better future. Humor is therapeutic and finding things to laugh about make life worthwhile.
“We are all works in progress, like an unfinished novel,” Barbara says. “I help my clients realize that they can make choices and take authorship of their lives….Because the best parts are the ones they haven’t written yet.”
