Barb Brown, MA, LPC
Who am I you might ask, and why should you listen to me? Well, to start, I have a Master’s Degree in counseling psychology and have been in private practice for more than 15 years. I recently transitioned to life coaching and spiritual mentoring as well as running retreats. I also manage a healing arts center in Arvada, Colorado. In the last 20 years I have studied a variety of healing modalities including EMDR, Brainspotting, Neuro-Emotional Technique, Somatic Archaeology, Qigong, and hypnotherapy. I draw from all of my experience and training when working with clients.
I have also lived a life filled with trauma and tragedy. I have overcome each adversity and have healed and grown from each experience. My wounds have become the source of my greatest strength. I've been wounded, hurt, abandoned, and betrayed. I struggled with anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. I have always felt different from everyone else making me feel isolated and alone. I've done a lot of personal work finding the the right counselors and mentors to help me heal and grow. Many times I wanted to give up, but I kept persevering. I'm now happy with my life and I have peace, purpose, and joy.
Because I have chosen to look at, feel, and deal with my pain rather than just survive the trauma, I am now living life on my own terms, feeling a deep love for myself, as well as a magical connection to spirit. I have faced my deepest wounds and pain, experiencing uncertainty, discomfort, and fear leading to a healing at my very core. I have been able to incorporate all of what I have been through, all of what I have learned to define myself, not as a victim, but as a warrior. By integrating my pain I now have a powerful perspective, wisdom, and healing presence to help others heal and grow through their own trauma and pain. I understand vulnerability on a deep level and can offer a safe place for anyone ready to begin their own healing journey. While painful and difficult, my life journey has been a sacred gift that I am now meant to share.
I am relentless in the pursuit of my unique truth. My life has been one long spirit quest and I want my work to make a real difference in the world and in your life. My life experiences have given me the ability to truly understand and help others in the pursuit of their unique truth as well. I am a Spirit Quest guide and I love what I do!
I am called to do this work! I was born for this purpose. This work is my passion. This work is my love and my life!
My work is sacred, what I offer is sacred, I am sacred, and so are you! I am here to remind you of that fact. You matter so much and you are so very loved!
I understand pain and vulnerability at a deep level and can hold the necessary space for your healing, personal growth, and spiritual transformation. I offer spiritual coaching, personal retreats, as well as hypnotherapy.
Insight and Healing
I founded Insight and Healing to offer coaching, retreats, workshops, training, and products to help people access their own inner wisdom, spiritual gifts, creativity, and joy. I help people tap into all of their emotions to transform them, allowing them to flow more freely, experiencing greater peace, harmony, joy, and balance, as well as finding a deeper connection to their life and spirit.
SoulCollage® is an expressive arts practice done individually or in community. Founded by Seena B. Frost, the method develops creativity and intuition, encourages self-discovery, and provides personal guidance. SoulCollage® meets you wherever you are on this journey called life. You don’t have to be an artist to make SoulCollage® cards. Anyone can create and enjoy this powerful practice.
SoulCollage® begins as simple creative fun that may suddenly surprise and awaken you! Create your own deck of cards with deep personal meaning to help you with life’s questions. All you need is a good pair of scissors, pre-cut mat board cards, and images.
I became a Soulcollage® facilitator in 2015. I love making cards for myself as well as showing others how to make their own cards as well as use their cards as a powerful tool in life's journey.
Everyday Spirit Quest
I believe that we are spiritual beings having a human experience and we didn't come to play small. Every day is an opportunity for a spiritual adventure.
The relentless pursuit of your unique truth is a spiritual quest.
