Dr. Barbara Bear
Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychological Services
Educational and Career Consultant, Executive Coach and Certified Autism Specialist
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in Greensboro, N.C. offering psychological services as well as education and career consulting. I have a general practice helping individuals, couples, and families with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, relationship difficulties, divorce, workplace challenges, and autism spectrum disorder live more productive and fulfilling lives. I also offer parent coaching and divorce coaching when someone is contemplating entering the divorce process or has been through the litigation process.
I am also an Education Consultant, helping students find the "right fit" for their schooling, college and university search, and graduate school application process.
My other roles include Career Consultant, Executive Coach, Organizational Psychologist, and Certified Autism Specialist.
I have 22 years of experience in counseling and psychotherapy. My training and experience has enabled me to find the the best fit therapeutic approaches for each client, helping them cope, manage, and overcome their problems. I strive to create a safe, comfortable, confidential setting. I have experience working in a variety of setting with a variety of ages including schools, universities, private practice, group practice, and corporate mental health.
I am also an Adjunct Faculty Member/Executive Coach at the Center for Creative Leadership, Greensboro, NC where I have the opportunity to coach executives from all over the world become more self aware and how to be more effective in the work place.
What I have discovered from my 22 years of diverse experience is that human beings have difficulty with communication, conflict resolution, and self awareness. I enjoy helping clients address better ways to communicate and resolve conflict.
My approach is positive, affirming, and nurturing, although I also believe in taking clients out of their comfort zones in an effort to improve their lives while simultaneously challenging clients to adjust their paradigms, thinking patterns, perspectives, and behavioral patterns to make improvements in their lives.
I also incorporate humor into my therapy sessions when appropriate. Since I strive to give my clients access to the best therapies available, I am constantly reading new research studies and attending seminars for my own knowledge. Being on the cutting edge of research and treatment approaches enables me to provide customized care, and clients report that I am genuinely attuned to their needs. I do not believe in a "one size fits all" model for my patient care.
