Hello! I’m Dr. Barb LoFrisco. I am a couples and individual counselor in the Carrollwood area of Tampa, in private practice since 2008. For your convenience, I have evening and weekend hours, as well as online booking. If you are ready to do the work, multiple research studies indicate that counseling is helpful, so you are in the right place!
Helping individuals and couples overcome issues such as anxiety, depression, intimacy and more is my passion and purpose in life. I have never regretted leaving Corporate America in 2004 to pursue my dream of becoming a counselor. I learn and grow daily, and it is an honor when people allow me into their lives.
Because I believe individual issues can affect relationships and visa versa, I am licensed and experienced in both individual and couples therapy. I am proud to be part of a small segment of therapists trained in systemic theory (to help understand relationship issues better) and an even smaller (tiny!) segment trained in sex therapy.
For more details on the services I provide, please see the navigation tabs on the top. I’ve also created a short video further down the page to explain the counseling process. Feel free to call me with any questions you may have, either about my services, my credentials or my method of providing therapy.
** COVID 19 update 3/24/20: Until further notice, all of my sessions will be telehealth.
“I so appreciate everything you’ve done for me.” – Female: individual therapy, August 2018
“Thank you Barb, I am more than so very satisfied with everything you continue to do for my wife and I. Couples counseling has been excellent. Without Barb’s guidance and counseling I am certain our marriage would not have survived. We are not where we want to be yet, but thanks to Barb’s counseling and insight I am hopeful that our marriage can survive the turmoil and we will have a stronger marriage because of it. If not Barb has prepared us to go forward regardless of our marriage’s outcome.” – Male: couples therapy, December 2016
“Barb’s ability to uncover the heart of the matter is uncanny. Her skilled approach helped me unravel what I needed be learn about myself, and offered guidance to clearly see the changes I wanted and needed to make. Thank you, Barb.” – Female: individual therapy, October 2016
