Very Disappointing

I had a very difficult time with Dr. Barnes. She lacked empathy and tended to be very judgmental. After 3 sessions, she misdiagnosed me, who led to a series of horrible problems for my family and myself. I went to Dr. Barnes to grieve the loss of my mother. Dr. Barnes never asked me my goals for therapy and we never discussed my mother. I felt Dr. Barnes was creating problems for me just to keep me coming to make money from my insurance. I ended up seeing a psychiatrist who worked with me to undue the damage of Dr. Barnes.

Very Poor

Dr. Barnes should have her license revoked. She has done more harm to my 14 year old daughter than anyone. The psychological scars my daughter now has taken years to repair.

Unkind and Unprofessional

I sought help from Barnes & Klatt and completed only two sessions at which point I decided that the available appointment times wouldn't work with my work schedule. I also felt that I did not have a good fit with the doctor. The dynamic between a doctor and patient is very personal, and it is totally reasonable to decide you want to pursue a different doctor. After leaving a voicemail expressing that scheduling conflicts would prevent me from future sessions, I received a harshly worded letter from the doctor. In this letter I was diagnosed with "severe" conditions that I do not feel two sessions could possibly have allowed for. The initial appointment was a lot of initial "get to know you" type dialogue. To be diagnosed in this manner felt extremely premature. I was also insulted by the doctor, specifically referred to as "ambivalent about receiving treatment for my severe conditions". I found this choice of words unkind and unethical. During our second and final session the doctor also called me by the wrong name, but I chose not to correct her since I wasn't sure we'd ever work together again. I did not have a positive experience and would not recommend their services to anyone in need. The letter I received almost a month after our final session was the catalyst for me to provide this review. Had we simply parted ways I might not have felt compelled to post this feedback.

Horrible
