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.
