Polaris Counseling is pleased to announce that Julie Barbosa and Jennifer Loughran have joined our team!
Julie Barbosa is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 20 years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families. Although Julie tailors her approach to the needs of each client, she finds Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Family Systems Counseling to be the most effective. Julie believes that people typically seek out counseling because they desire some type of change within themselves, their relationships, or their lives and sees her role as guiding her clients in the process of clarifying their goals and finding ways to achieve those goals. Julie enjoys reading, music, hiking, dancing, traveling, and talking with friends!
Jennifer Loughran is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with extensive experience working with individuals, children, adolescents, families, and groups. She believes that when people are experiencing difficult times in their lives, the proper support and introduction to new skills will provide a sense of relief and a skill set to be utilized in the future. Her goal for her clients is to walk away from treatment feeling empowered and confident in conquering their day to day struggles. Through the use of Cognitive Behavioral and Solution-Focused Therapy along with the use of problem solving skills Jennifer is able to guide her clients toward the emotional balance they are seeking. Jennifer enjoys being active and getting out in the community!
We are thrilled to have Julie and Jennifer join our team and have no doubt they will continue our mission in providing the highest quality, professional and compassionate counseling services to our clients.
