      Bari is a registered somatic movement therapist and expressive arts therapist.  Her approach includes utilizing talk therapy as well as a variety of art forms including movement, visual art, improvisation, as well as writing as a way of generating resources, gathering different perspectives on an issue and potentially discovering unknown strengths to help one navigate difficult emotions and events.  Bari gently and at times playfully invites her clients into creative explorations that explore clients’ unique narratives in an open and curious way that can create possibilities for change.
