Compassionate, Smart, Funny
I have been seeing Barbara for the last three years, and have always left her office feeling better than I did when I came in. Struggling with OCD can feel intangible, but Barbara has made employing cognitive strategies much more reachable—not to mention, I actually look forward to our appointments (a first with therapy)! Barbara's breadth of experience and naturally compassionate nature have helped me feel understood. I am living a happier life thanks to the work we've accomplished together!

I needed a neutral listener to consider issues around a major transition decision, and Barbara was so helpful--she helped articulate the main issues and helped me to clarify where I stand, so that I can move forward.

Barbara has been a big help to me since I started seeing her last summer. Thanks to her, I entered an anxiety treatment program that pushed me light years ahead of where I'd been. I'm looking forward to working with her on some issues that I'd never been able to face/deal with before, now that my anxiety is finally under control.

You won't go wrong!
I have had the benefit of seeing Barbara for almost two years now and I can’t recommend her enough! She is very bright; she is completely engaged and extremely supportive. Barbara really helped me safely navigate some of life’s difficult challenges. Several times during our time working together she lead me, to a profound change of perspective, benefiting not just me but my loved ones as well. If I ever have to do battle again, I want Barbara in my foxhole fighting along side me. cw

Sleepless in Shelburne
I have struggled with anxiety and sleep issues, especially when pregnant or postpartum and Barbara has changed my life! I no longer get need ambien to sleep and my anxiety is hardly present at all anymore. She uses different approaches and humor during her sessions and I truly enjoy my work with her. I feel truly lucky to have found Barbara, she has a true gift when helping others! I would recommend her over and over again! Thank you Barbara for all your help!

Highly experienced compassionate counselor
Having never been to therapy before I was a bit hesitant and unsure what to expect at my first appointment with Barbara. The time flew by as it does each session, and I left that first time wondering why I waited so long to get the support I needed for things that had been troubling me for years. She is incredibly welcoming, knowledgeable, easy to talk to and authentic; I HIGHLY recommend her!
Jan 23, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara is a wonderful therapeutic counselor. Supportive and interactive. She has provided me with the tools necessary to guide my decision making and personal inquiry.
Nov 16, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara is incredible. She has supported me immensely in just the first few months alone! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone seeking clear and direct advice and support.

Off to a great start
I've only just started seeing Barbara and knew right in our first session that she was going to be great. She is so easy to talk to and there's no awkwardness at all like I've had with some counselors. Her approach is phenomenal in tailoring your sessions to exactly what you need. It never feels weird letting her know if something is or isn't working for you. I highly recommend her if you're looking for someone who is very skilled, but also makes her sessions a really enjoyable experience.
Sep 16, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
She is incredibly helpful and insightful
I feel at complete ease when speaking with her, almost as if we have known each other for years. Thank you Barbara!

Wonderful and supportive experience
I was only able to have one session with Barbara due to an insurance mix-up, but her experience and thoughtfulness really came through. She offered to help connect me with other therapists who take my insurance with whom we might work well. Wonderful experience, and though I wish I could keep working with her, I look forward to meeting the folks she mentioned and seeing where that goes!
Aug 19, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara is fantastic
I have been to many therapists and even after only one session with Barbara I felt comfortable with her and am looking forward to working with her.

Barbara is phenomenal
If you have been looking for a therapist, stop now and make an appointment with Barbara. I have been seeing her for over 2.5 years and she has helped me make tremendous positive change in my life. She is exceptionally understanding, insightful, kind, and funny! She is patient, but will always encourage you to push yourself to get to a better place. She is excellent with family members and significant others as well. I love Barbara and am so grateful for her and all that she has helped me with.
Jun 9, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara is very welcoming and friendly. I felt very comfortable and understood while talking with her. I highly recommend her.
Apr 19, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
I highly recommend Barbara!
I immediately felt comfortable with Barbara during my first session with her. I have seen other counsellors before and it has always felt a bit awkward or unnatural. It's completely different with Barbara. Each session with her feels like a talk with a supportive friend. She listens well and also provides tangible advice. I have already recommended her to a good friend who also loves her, and I would recommend her to anybody else too!
Jan 31, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
If you are nervous about going into therapy, fear not. From the moment you meet Barbara you will experience joy, insight and will look forward to your next session. She knows her stuff, gives great feedback, and really helps you to move past obstacles. She's highly skilled and extremely competent. Love her.

Barbara was immediately engaging and our connection could not have been better. She offered excellent advice that is do-able and practical. Her instincts and evaluation of issues presented are spot on. Barbara is also a wonderful listener.
Nov 16, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara is simply fantastic
Barbara is not only our family therapist but also sees me individually. Our last session was particularly difficult for me. Barbara was great putting it all together and helping me develop a very comfortable plan that turned a very difficult behavioral and relationship issue for me into a positive next step. She's always supportive, responsive and committed to her work and her clients.
Oct 26, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara's enthusiasm for what she does in empowering
Barbara has taken us under her tutelage and given us a plan for dealing with some negative behavior (defiance, computer addiction) that has been very difficult for our family. She is very responsive to calls and emails when we need clarification or just moral support to carry through.
Sep 10, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara has created an incredible environment to encourage support and growth. I am so grateful to have found her and her practice!

Supportive, kind and humorous
Being referred to Barbara was just what I needed as I was working through a difficult transition. She helped me to see things from a different perspective, cheered me on, and congratulated me as I made progress. All of this through tears and laughter. I am grateful for my time with her.
Oct 9, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Finding Barbara is one of the best things that has happened to me this year. She is insightful, illuminating, relatable, humorous, and sincere. I couldn't ask for more. She has helped me lift emotional weights from my soul and unveiled some of the mysteries of my condition. I am grateful!
Oct 9, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
She really is the best
From our first meeting, I felt that Barbara really understood me and could get right down to business. She offers insight and guidance into each situation. I truly look forward to our talks.

Barbara is the Best!!!
I always leave Barbara's office or hang up the phone feeling like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I feel like I have clarity and insight to whatever I'm dealing with. Barbara is a great listener who makes clear,insightful comments with a big smile!! I love that we can laugh and talk about whatever I need. Truly the best.

Thought provoking experience
After a two-year break, I recently met with Barbara. She is so personable, we picked up right where we left off. Barbara asks questions and provides prompts appropriate to moving towards solutions. It's great to be back to sort through my new concerns.
Jul 28, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Intelligent, Personal Therapy
I have worked with Barbara on and off for a number of years, and recently started to see her again on a regular basis. As a a twenty-something male I did not think that therapy would be a huge help, but I now realize it was the best/healthiest choice I could have made. Her insight and knowledge has been invaluable for dealing with some of the major stressors in my life. Recommend! Recommend! Recommend!
Jun 25, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara is a fantastic therapist. Compassionate, good listener and has great advice and knowledge. She loves her job and really cares about her clients.

Professional and compassionate
Outstanding attention to my child's needs and family challenges. Barbara is thorough and very professional and creates a welcoming, safe and supportive setting for her client. Recommend without hesitation!
May 21, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara is COOL. I can tell her anything and she will either listen to me if I need it or give me very sage and level headed real advice and tailors it towards my specific life. She understands my neurotic mind and gives me comfort. Her couch is also very comfortable! A great place to unload my emotions and get wonderful advice. I would definitely recommend Barbara.
May 11, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara was really nice and understanding to me during a difficult time in my life. There were times where I felt she understood me better than I did myself. I would great recommend her to anybody with mental health issues.
Mar 21, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
What a resource in our community.
Familyworks was recommended by a friend for some support our family needed. We had such rapport with Barbara that it was an instant fit after the first part of the first session. I would highly recommend Familyworks for any mental health issues. She is such an accessible person.
Mar 19, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Has your interests in mind
Words cannot express my appreciation for how I felt listened to and cared for as a person. Barb provides an outside perspective and knowledgeable insight to help find solutions to challenges. Exceptional.

Knowledgeable and Direct!
Excellent counselor! I appreciate her ability to facilitate sessions. This counselor appears to have an innate ability to direct communication in a meaningful way.
Nov 19, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barb is truly amazing -- an intelligent, warm and caring counselor who is incredibly easy to talk to, for both myself and my teenager. She challenges us in a way that makes us feel understood and supported, while providing incredible insight and actionable advice. I would recommend her for any family counseling.
Nov 2, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
For our initial consultation, Barbara and Phoebe were excellent! Warm, intuitive and caring; I look forward to working with her further.
Oct 20, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara has not only helped me to understand my emotions, but gives me thoughtful and useful advise as to how I can use my time. She is wonderfully funny, and very down to earth. I can tell her anything. She has helped me develop and mature into a person that I love.

Family works visit
I thought the experience was great. The house is beautiful, the street is quaint, the dog was totally disarming and I found I was very relaxed and at ease.

She Instills Confidence
Ms. Boutsakaris is wise, informed, gentle yet forcefull. I have recommended several people to her and the fact that she is no longer taking on new clients speaks volumes of how loved and sought after she is.

She is the best!
I have worked with other therapists in the past and none have come anywhere near to being as insightful and as helpful as Barb. I always leave feeling stronger and more empowered than when I walked in. I'm her biggest fan.
Oct 20, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barb has been of immense help, providing me with the tools to improve my marriage; help me to see things objectively; and find a way to be the complete person I've always wanted to be.

A different approach
At the end of the second couples session Barbara had already shown me more insight about my relationship than I had gained from years of counselling with others. She has a very strong presence during our sessions, and uses that strength to move thing along. I am glad we chose her...
Aug 11, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
What a gem!
Barbara continues to provide insightful support, with a charm and candidness that inspires transformation. She has guided me through changes I didn't always think were possible. I always feel the change from within. And most importantly, her genuinity comforts me; her work is anything but cold.
May 2, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Thanks for helping me sort out next steps for the future. There were clear guidelines on what we need to do in order to provide some structure within our household.
Mar 19, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Today was Day 1 for me, and I've not done any counseling in many years. Barbara was very warm and welcoming and I felt very comfortable and encouraged by her easy manner. I like the way she wants to approach our sessions, and feel hopeful about making some changes in my life, with her help.
Mar 10, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara is amazing!
I have been meeting with Barbara on and off for the last 15 years. Everytime I see her...her wisdom and true compassion for helping others is clearly visiable. I would recommend Familyworks, Inc. to anyone searching for some support and direction in this chiotic world. I am very blessed and thankful to have met her!
Feb 17, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
couples counciling session
We met Barbara after finding her on the web.. we liked her energy, style and mannerism..she was interested in both of us, asked great questions, and showed caring while directing the session to help us stay focused! plus I really like her online schedualing..how handy is that!!
Jan 28, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara has been the reassuring voice in my head since I started seeing her about four months ago. She's an incredible listener, and pushes me to examine the role I play in my own life. She has an easy, relaxed - but professional - style that is a good fit for me. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for positive change.
Dec 11, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara has counseled me through my darkest time of being a parent of a child with a drug addiction. She helped me realize that I have the tools to survive within myself, and truly the only person I can take care of is myself. She guided, and supported me in making clear expectations for our home, and gave me the guidance to follow through if these were not met. I am now celebrating my beautiful 19 yr. old that has been clean for 10 months. I have learned to let go.
Nov 14, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
Barbara is very kind, funny and a great listener who asks questions that will make you think! Def. recommend her services! The atmosphere was very comfortable and relaxing.
Nov 11, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30077123
I have worked with many therapists in the past and Barb is by far the best. From my first meeting with her I knew it was going to be a good fit. She is very caring, an incredible listener, never judges, and a wealth of resources. I have worked with her as an individual, as a couple, and a family. I have learned so much about myself and able to face my challenges with her support.

A fan of Familyworks
I have been very pleased with Familyworks. Barbara's direct and thoughtful style, along with her "systems" approach, have helped me see new points of view and better understand my family's dynamics. I've really enjoyed the work we've done together.
