Biography of Andrea Barry
Andrea graduated in 2011 from Texas Women’s University with her Bachelor’s in Social Work and then continued her studies to receive a Master’s in Social Work from Texas A&M Commerce in 2012. She currently holds her Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) license and is working towards her clinical license (LCSW). She has worked in many areas of social work and with a wide range of ages including children, teens, adults, and senior citizens. Andrea worked at Denton County Friends of the Family, which is a shelter for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Here she was able to offer services directly to the victims in both individualized sessions and through group therapy. She hosted weekly classes on topics such as choosing healthy relationships and processing sexual trauma.
Andrea had the opportunity to provide clients with grief therapy and local resources to help victims dealing with complex grief and loss during the time she worked at MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving). While at MADD, her research led to a change in their death notification training for first responders. Here her passion was born to help individuals who are suffering from grief caused by any type of loss. She then served as the Director of Social Services at a long term care facility in Belton, where she provided and facilitated care for individuals and their families. She also worked in a hospital setting where she provided services to individuals dealing with mental health crisis situations.
Her most recent work has been working with and supporting her husband who has been pastoring for six years, and providing therapy to individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, loss, grief and trauma at her private practice. Andrea has a desire to see people living overcoming and fulfilling lives and her passion is helping them achieve it.
