Nilly Barr, M.S., LPC, Parenting Coach

Board Certified in Integrative Medicine

Nilly is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology from the University of Tennessee in 1988.  Nilly has been in practice  for over twenty five years and lives in Greenville with her husband and two daughters and an extended family of friends-- as well as their beautiful cat Morgan and the latest addition to the family, their lively puppy, Max. She is also involved in various community efforts while providing services in Greenville and various other states via phone and skype.

Accredited by the American Association of integrative Medicine, A Diplomate in the American Psychotherapy Association and a member of the American Counseling Association, Nilly provides a full range of counseling services focused on individuals, couples, and businesses.  It is her belief that all of us can improve our relationships with spouses, children, co-workers, clients and with ourselves.  The key to such improvement lies in the word "balance".

Balance embodies a sense of a well-proportioned life:

  • Give to our loved ones and our jobs without losing ourselves?
  • Maintain lasting relationships while nurturing ourselves?
  • Balance the serious demands of life and still engage in the humor and joy in it?
  • Calm our children's minds and keep ourselves at peace?
  • Face our fears without being paralyzed by them? and to touch the place of trust deep within?
  • Live life in touch with abundance and safety even as we are surrounded by turmoil?
