What Led Me to Barn Life

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with years of experience working in a variety of treatment settings including residential, outpatient, mental health, and private practice. I am an EMDR-certified therapist, and have been utilizing my training in EMDR with clients since 2016. I have extensive training in trauma and other mental health concerns, including relational issues, attachment wounds, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, and substance use disorders. I’m always seeking more knowledge and to stay ahead of evidence-based practices and current gaps in mental health offerings. My newest venture is seeking certification in Perinatal Mental Health.

My Role at Barn Life

My work is a healthy mix of direct client contact and behind the scenes work! I am involved in policy and procedure, consultation and problem-solving with staff, overall oversight of the program, and ensuring the program is up to our own clinical standards – all while ensuring we are also among the best in our industry.

When a client is struggling with treatment goals or engaging in self-sabotage, I work with our staff and clients to problem solve through a curious, supportive and direct approach.

In my work with clients, I help them increase their self-awareness and remove the barriers keeping them from peace. Oftentimes, this is rooted in trauma. Every client deserves freedom from their past and to be able to fully step into their true self and a life that is meaningful to them.

What I Love Most About My Work at Barn Life?

I love seeing clients become their authentic selves and feel accepted by a community! I also love that our team is genuinely caring and competent.

Hear From Those We've Impacted

Barn Life is uniquely special. As someone who has had long stretches of sobriety with "traditional" communities and methods, Barn Life stepped in when I started struggling during the pandemic and said "traditional" methods failed to help.The staff here are exceptional. This is a truly subjective statement, but it is my honest opinion that the people from the owner (Hi Matt!) to EVERYONE else works there because they believe in the work and want to share the tools they found.Barn Life and their little sibling, Peer Mental Wellness were the launchpad from a shell of an existence to person with self-love/respect, and a life-mission of personal development.

Best for someone looking for spiritual healing in addition to their mental health healing.

Barn life is probably one of the most amazing facilities you could ever attend when it comes to mental illness. This was the first place that popped up when I was searching for help and I’m so thankful that it did. The environment is very therapeutic, the staff is awesome, and the group discussions and activities were so helpful in me understanding what I was experiencing. Do not hesitate to be a part of this place. It’s literally a game changer. I was only there for 6 weeks but I wished I stayed at least 6 months. Ever since returning home, I’ve been much happier and my perspective has changed dramatically. I’ve done things and participated in events at my college that I never thought I would be able to do. This place is truly amazing and I’m forever grateful that I found this place.

My daughter has been at Barn Life Recovery now for two months. It was my last resort to send her 9 hours away from me. She has been in drug and mental health rehabs in and out for two years. This was my last stitch effort to save my daughter and get her back to herself. Alyssa and I spoke multiple times before deciding. Their willingness to do everything for her and the different teams they have work with them is amazing. My daughter is happy again and clean and sober. She loves it there in their outpatient program. They restore your faith in humanity. They help restore someone who is broken in so many places to themselves. They have put the light back in my daughters eyes. They are committed to helping each person who truly wants the help. They assist in helping them get jobs and be responsible members of society. I recommend their program to anyone wanting to recover from drug, alcohol and mental health.Thank you to all the people at Barn Life who have made my daughter smile and bring the light back to her eyes. I am truly grateful.DawnaLee
