Human beings have fundamental needs for intra-personal and inter-personal happiness: the ability to perceive reality accurately, to know oneself, be in fulfilling relationships, and make healthy decisions. Dr. Barimany’s work focuses on helping individuals, couples, and mental health professionals develop parts of the mind that are ripe for growth to improve the quality of life, cultivate professional growth, and find intrinsic freedom and happiness.
Dr. Barimany’s approach combines mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and cutting-edge research on consciousness development to balance psychological dispositions and expand the capacity to apply novel approaches to recurring problems.
Dr. Barimany specializes in working with emerging adults, couples, and mental health professionals seeking their own therapy. She also runs the Junior Associate program at Frog Point Therapy, provides clinical supervision and professional mentoring.
