Barbara George LPC, LMHC

Adjunct Faculty


I have pursued training in diverse fields of study. My earliest career was as a secondary education teacher of Native American students in New Mexico, where I lived 8 years in the 70s. In 1980 I moved to New England and lived there 23 years, where I worked as a professional horsewoman for 15 years, and where I earned two Master's Degrees, one in English, one in Psychology. I began teaching at Clark University and practicing counseling in Massachusetts with these degrees. I also married and helped raise two stepchildren, both of whom have been successful in their own fields of history and film editing. Finally, I formed and played in a folk duet in New England as one of the "Hurdy Gurls." Aging parents called me home to Pittsburgh in 2003; since then I have been adjusting to being in southwestern PA again after a 31 year absence. Go Steelers! (But the Patriots will forever hold a place in my heart...)
