Healing Mountain Mental Health is a practice that not only aids individuals through evidence-based therapy practices, but strives to bring awareness and social change to the mental health community. It is a safe space for BIPOC, LGBTQIA2+, disabled and neurodivergent individuals, immigrants and refugees, and all people who feel systemic oppression in their daily lives.
Barbara DeBree, LCSW (she/her/hers)
Barbara first grew up on a large cattle ranch in Montana. From there, she lived in a variety of surroundings; from large cities to Native American Reservations in Montana - and at times overseas due to her military career. She loves to be able to use her diversity of experiences of places and types of people to have a better understanding of especially marginalized populations and the particular struggles they encounter and have to overcome. Every person and family are unique, but at times understanding cultural differences, particular historical and family trauma patterns, can be very beneficial in therapy.
