Ann Barton, Counseling & Life Coaching, Growth To Gratitude
I would like to recommend to you a brilliant, experienced, highly intuitive and helpful counselor and life coach, Ann Barton. I have known and worked with Ann many years and found her a wonderful guide, with skilled insight, not just for understanding the issues we all struggle with, but also for opening doors to new directions, behaviors, visions – and more functional ways of living. Ann helps with life’s deepest transitions: relationship issues, divorce, loss, empty nest, couples work, relationship healing, depression, anxiety, career change and many other areas. She has her master’s degree in transpersonal psychology from Antioch University, where she studied under the famed Will Schutz, author of “Joy.”
She studied with William Glasser of "Reality Therapy" and Brad Blanton, author of "Radical Honesty." She works with the Enneagram (map of the nine personality types), sand tray, Gestalt, dream work -- and approaches her work with presence, honesty and the ability to work through shadow to the light that is the soul of all of us.
Ann is a warm, caring and good-hearted person who meshes psychology with the spiritual life, employing the teachings of many wise guides, including Eckhart Tolle, Thomas Moore, Angeles Arreins.
She was for years a volunteer counselor at Ashland High School, has a deep love of children and is the mother of two, now grown. She guides a women-in-transition group -- and works with men on the same transitions. She is a graduate of many workshops, including EST, Lifespring and Wings.
Testimonials:" I came to Ann shortly after my marriage ended. And even though I initially went to her to deal with the misery of divorce, she ultimately became a wonderfully compassionate guide to a search for and finding of ME. I am incredibly grateful for her intelligence, kindness, and wit. I had set my lowered sights on being okay again and she instead helped me find a continuous sense of peace and happiness."
- MB “Ann has helped me reveal and heal my deepest wounds, from childhood to now. We have worked with many different personal and spiritual processes that have helped me understand and see the parts of myself that I have control over and can use in positive and constructive ways. She brings strength, love and a deep wisdom to her practice. I am in loving gratitude for the work she does.”
