Barbara Balowitz, MSW, LCSW, BCD, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Salem
People facing depression, anxiety disorders, relationship problems and stress are the focus of my practice. If you are in a life transition involving your relationship, family or career, I will work with you to weather the storm and reach your goals.
I specialize in depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. I work with individuals and couples. My approach includes cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and solution-focused techniques. Goals for counseling shape our work together. Therapy homework promotes continued growth and change between sessions.
