Mrs. McCubbin’s main experience has revolved around depression of all stages and types, including PPD (Post- Partum Depression); anxiety including panic attacks; and dealing with victim’s of a range of traumatic events from sexual/physical abuse, witnesses of homicide/suicide, and life-threatening accidents or events (PTSD).
In the first 10 years in practice, Mrs. McCubbin also treated children, adolescents and families in dealing with ADHD/ADD, ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder), depression, anxiety, Bipolar, peer/friends development issues, attachment disorder, bereavement/grief, divorce, blended family issues, parent/child issues, and behavioral issues. Mrs. McCubbin’s practice is devoted primarily to adults now although minors are considered on a case-by-case basis.
“Although I specialize in Women’s Issues, I also work with men as well. In my experience, women tend to be more vocal about their feelings and are willing to share. It’s more difficult for men to share their issues as men are genetically wired to internalize and solve problems. Sometimes all of us need a little help. I provide a safe environment for women and men to participate in developing healthier self-care and grow through the experience of therapy.” Barbara Tyndall McCubbin, LPC
Counseling sessions provide a safe, confidential, non-judgmental atmosphere, allowing you to process through and resolve life and personal well-being issues… medication alone will not resolve the issues.
Corporate experience has included speaking on topics of handling behavioral issues in childcare settings, self-care in the workplace, and the effects of traumatic events on rescue personnel/Firefighters. Mrs. McCubbin’s current workshops focus on improving corporate communication and atmosphere in the workplace to facilitate improved efficiency and productivity at all levels.
Licensed Professional Counselor
Consumer Information Regarding Mental Health Professionals
“LPC” stands for Licensed Professional Counselor. In our beautiful state of Colorado, the standards for acquiring licensure are intense. Still, anyone can hang up a shingle and profess to do “counseling” or “therapy.”
Licensed professionals, after completing their Masters or Ph.D., must acquire 2000-3400 post-graduate experience with supervision and pass a state board test to receive licensure. Mrs. McCubbin received her Master’s in Psychology from Regis University in 2002 and opened her private practice at that time. Mrs. McCubbin has held Colorado licensure since 2005.
Unlicensed professionals per Colorado Statute must identify themselves as “Registered Psychotherapists.” When searching for therapeutic help, look for or ask about state licensure or thoroughly check out and question an unlicensed professional’s credentials and background if you choose to use someone that is not licensed.
Typically when consumers use their health insurance to defray the cost of therapy, only licensed professional counselors are allowed by insurance. Other examples of licensed mental health professionals besides a LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) include: LMFT (Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist); LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker); LSW (Licensed Social Worker); and Licensed Psychologists.
