About Barnaby Tenzin Denison

No matter how great your suffering is, I welcome the opportunity to be with you, listen, and support you in bringing about the change you seek. I believe that change is always possible, even when we become more aware of our deep suffering or feel stuck; sometimes those are the times we can bring about the most profound changes. 

Originally from the UK, I have since ordained as a monk in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, and now live in eastern Washington State, where I have been practicing as a licensed mental health counselor since 2013.


I tend to work most with therapeutic approaches that include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and compassion focused therapy (CFT). After 20 years of experience practicing meditation, I also enjoy integrating mindfulness and compassion training. I look forward to you contacting me so we can begin therapy together.

About Online Therapy

Research studies indicate that the efficacy of online therapy is equivalent to face-to-face care in various settings and an acceptable, if not better alternative. Studies have shown that asynchronous messaging therapy as well as video therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy (please click here for more detail of this research).
