Missy Barone


Missy Barone

Missy works with teens, adults, and family systems, and specializes in issues related to

multicultural identity, LGBTQ, and adoptive or blended families. She works from an existential

and attachment based model, is passionate about developing resilience, finding your OWN

definition of substance use recovery, having reparative experiences and relationships, finding

meaning in trauma, and working through anger. She is a believer that family/couples conflict

is not solved by “fixing” one person, but rather by everyone being willing to take ownership of

what they bring to the table. She loves to infuse humor throughout her work whenever

possible, and it is a priority for her to emphasize the importance of holistic living, passion, and

purpose; as without these things life can become significantly more challenging.

Life continuously brings about many different challenges and changes. While this is part of

the beauty of living and relationships, we may often find ourselves at a point of feeling

overwhelmed, frustrated, and repeating patterns that don’t serve us. Missy seeks to provide a

safe neutral environment in which clients can explore how they want to grow, move forward,

and live their best life!

In Missy’s spare time, she is athletic and enjoys outdoor activities, snowboarding, yoga, and

anything related to the water. She also has roots as a musician.

She currently holds licenses as a Professional Counselor, Addictions Counselor, and Marriage

and Family Therapist. Her qualifications also include being EMDR-Trained and SAFE Certified.

SAFE certification means that she can provide an evaluation for those parents interested in

pursuing foster care or adoption. She can also be hired as a Child and Family Investigator for

those families going through a complicated divorce (or separation) process.
