Helping You Get Unstuck!


Awareness—Your First Step to Getting Unstuck

Where We Get Stuck:

  • Not being able to heal from your past wounding
  • Feeling unworthy or not being good enough
  • Not expressing emotions or speaking your truth
  • Remaining in relationships that aren’t giving you what you need
  • Failing to communicate honestly with your partner, parents, or kids
  • Staying at a job that’s draining your energy.

Let’s Get Unstuck

Whatever it is that’s got you stuck, I can help you get unstuck! And once we work together, if you ever get stuck again—and we all do—you’ll have the tools to free yourself. Get in touch, and start living a freer, happier, more purposeful life.

Barry Cooney, Ph.D.

Barry began his career in 1976 as an Instructor of Human Behavior in the Department of Psychiatry, at the prestigious Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. Here, his breakthrough communication program for veterans received national recognition.

Despite this auspicious beginning, Barry became disenchanted with Western approaches to treating psychological and behavioral disorders and relocated to Santa Fe, New Mexico, a place known for its spiritual richness and other-mindedness. In his new home city, Barry founded a management development consultancy and soon earned a reputation for his outstanding methods of communication and problem-solving.

One thing led to another, and, in 2006, Barry was appointed Research Professor of Management and asked by the Provost of the University of New Mexico to become executive director of their campus in Gallup, New Mexico, a community college enrolling the greatest number of Navajo students of any public college or university in North America. Following his tenure at UNM, Barry traveled to India to further his lifelong study of mindfulness practices and ancient spirituality.

Today in Santa Fe, as an awareness coach, Barry draws on his communication skills, knowledge, and compassion to help people tap into their hidden resources, to get unstuck, and get happy. Which brings him much happiness, too.

Awareness Work for Individuals, Couples, and Group—Let’s Get Unstuck

It’s easy to get stuck in life. But getting unstuck is not as difficult as it may seem. It happens when you develop an awareness that you are much more than you think you are. In fact, you undoubtedly have limitless sources of energy and insight you never knew existed.

The process of getting unstuck involves exploring aspects of yourself that you likely forgot about, once you started doing society’s survival dance. I bring my experience and direct style of communication, which includes humor and compassion, to help you to get unstuck and live with joy, clarity, and purpose.


Individual awareness work helps you to recognize that you are much more than you think you are. It also helps you stop allowing your emotions to dictate consciousness. Through mindfulness and meditative practices, journaling, and active dialogue, you begin to expand your awareness and align yourself with thoughts and behaviors that release you from stuck places. After we’ve worked together, clients often tell me that they’ve never truly known what it was like to feel so calm and on-purpose.

“Along with his sense of humor, profound empathy, and powerful intuition, Barry offers a personalized blend of meditation, musical sound stimulation, dialogue, inspirational mantras, and take-away messages perfectly suited for busy lives. Barry doesn’t replace traditional psychotherapy or play management guru but shares insightful, spiritual perspectives and practical advice that I find myself recalling almost every day.”
