Dustin Barnes, MSW, LSW
Hello, I am a therapist and licensed social worker here at MTR. Life is difficult; there is no rule book. I am here to support you, help you learn new coping skills and strategies, and partner with you to live a life of wholeness and fulfillment. My style and personality is nurturing and supportive, yet very direct and truthful, with a dash of humor. I use a person-centered, holistic approach, in conjunction with CBT, mindfulness, gestalt therapy, and underlining psychodynamic work. I am open to all walks of life, however I do enjoy working with individuals who are: LGBTQ, people of color, artists or artistic types, have anxiety, depression, self-esteem, issues regarding religion and family of origin, suicidal thoughts, difficulties with self-actualization, and interested in healing from past traumas. In my spare time, I work on growing as a singer and songwriter. I enjoy good food, travel, laughter, and meeting new people.

Extensive experience in working with suicidal ideation and intervention, college-aged students, individuals with severe and persistent mental health concerns, and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
