Barry was born and raised in Southington CT. He has been married to Phylis for the past 32 years and they have been Wallingford residents for 30 of those years. When they first moved to Wallingford, they were blessed to have a son that was one of the most amazing human beings either of them had ever met. His name was Ryan.
At the time of his birth and for the first 7 years of his life, the battle to keep Ryan alive through many surgeries and medical procedures made life scary and very challenging for all three of them. Ryan’s attitude and love of life through all of it made Ryan an inspiration to both of his parents. These challenges and Ryan’s death at the premature age of 19 rerouted their lives and led them both down a path of healing and helping others to overcome the greatest challenges in their lives.
Barry’s path has led him to learn several modalities, energy healing, hypnotherapy, gestalt therapy, bioenergetics, couples therapy, family therapy, and family constellations. Barry earned his undergraduate degree at UConn, graduated from a 3 year program at the Institute of Healing Arts and Sciences, earned his Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy at SCSU, and graduated from The Family Constellations Institute.
Barry and Phyllis share a practice in Wallingford. They also continue Ryan’s charitable ways through fund raising for Cystic Fibrosis, Yale’s Cancer Tissue Bank, Kingswood Oxford’s Team Tobati trip, and the Hartford Wolf Pack Community Foundation.
