In our September 2014 issue, we highlighted some local coaches, mentors and therapists in Coaches Corner.
BARBARA GORDON, MA, LMFT
3620 Sterner Mill Rd, Quakertown
Therapist Barbara Gordon, LMFT, uses her skills to holistically heal others. She works from a spiritual perspective, utilizing mindfulness and compassionate listening to unblock what is holding others back in their lives. “I realized that we all want the same thing: to be real, to be connected to others and to be happy,” she says of her background as a hospice volunteer. “I began a private practice after I got licensed in 2006 because I saw how effective therapy can be in helping people who want to drop old beliefs that hold them back from really being alive.”
Gordon looks to aid anyone who is unhappy in their life. “If they could think their way out of their problems, they would already have done it,” she explains. “It’s very helpful to get help in uncovering unconscious core beliefs that are running the show, usually in the wrong direction.” In addition to offering individual and group therapy, Gordon leads meditation classes at the Greenshire Arts Consortium in Quakertown and presents workshops there on a variety of topics.
