Get to know Barbara Aufgang

I started my journey in counselling as a career counsellor working with newcomers building a life in Canada, students transitioning to the world of work and mature workers trying to regain their self-confidence and reinvent their careers. I then expanded my scope to include psychotherapy as challenges related to career and work are often connected to experiences in one’s personal life. I work with people to understand how events in their past could be holding them back and reinvent their self image, the way they engage with others opening up new possibilities.

I am an integrative therapist using a variety of methods tailored to your needs and therapy goals. I help people cope with anxiety and depression and I am trained in Exposure Response Prevention therapy to help people manage symptoms of OCD. I have helped people navigate their feelings and thoughts during difficult situations such as divorces, death of loved one and difficult relationships. I also work with people at a turning point in their career or students who are not sure about their future career to find the path that will be most fulfilling.
