“Dr. Rusty Barrier moves effortlessly through the seen and unseen worlds to guide his clients to make better decisions based on how they feel rather than just linear thought processes. He has a depth of personality and emotional understanding that I have not experienced with any other counselor.”
– Paul R.
As a Transformational Being, I serve as a bridge between the physical and spiritual realm. I have, throughout my life been gifted with an unbreakable bond with the spirit realm. I’m in constant communication with my own guides and ease others’ anxiety and fear by calling in their spiritual guardians.
In my private practice, I connect with each client on a multi-dimensional level assisting them in reaching their full potential. When you work with me, you will better understand your current situation and the aspects of yourself that no longer serve you. I work with you to release old behaviors, limiting beliefs, energy blocks, and stored emotions so that you can experience life on your personal growing edge.
One of my greatest gifts is the ability to deeply see the truth of any situation. A master of recognizing different states of consciousness, I’m adept at discerning when someone is in a state of energetic flow, and when they are operating under outdated or false belief systems. Through my sessions I work with each person to bring them back into alignment with their higher self.
I always felt a bond with something greater than myself. As a child growing up on a farm, I witnessed light orbs and played with the spider monkey people. My relationship with other realms has been a constant in my life. I feel my strongest when I am connected to nature and the animal kingdom. I integrate my love of nature into my private practice through breath, sound, and energy work. I understand the value of a wholistic approach to healing and support each client to find that balance for themselves.
I’ve been in the field of psychotherapy for the last thirty-five plus years and taught at the university level. I have extensive training in psychology, energy therapies, hypnosis, guided imagery, meditation, and various spiritual paths. I’ve discovered over the years that I have the ability to dance between the physical and non-physical planes of existence. This allows me to assist in the transcendence of the ego and gracefully lead clients into the higher realms of being and non-being.
I have been in the psychology and education fields for the last thirty-five years and have extensive training in psychology, energy therapies, hypnosis, guided imagery, meditation, and various spiritual paths. I am an enthusiastic proponent of the Mind, Body, Spirit essential balance.

“I retired from the military in 2012 with damage to my physical and emotional health. Dr. Rusty offered to work with me, through breathing to address my ‘PTSD.’ I wasn’t sure what I was expecting or even that I needed any help, but I can say honestly that what he did for me, goes far beyond the breath work sessions, and helps me maintain a happy & healthy life, 10 years later.
His expertise reached beyond the trauma from combat to show me how to deal with a lifetime of buried feelings and repressed images. Working with him allowed me to understand how to open myself to the pain, acknowledge it, and move through it. I still struggle at times, but his lasting techniques have taught me how to open, deal with the events that are triggering, and move past them. I am now and forever will be grateful to Dr. Rusty. His compassion in my life and knowing I can reach out for help keeps me moving forward.“
“Dr. Rusty’s Daleth Breathwork is truly next generation energy work. In just a few sessions I was able to fully embrace my inner child and treatment myself with the same love and compassion I have for my nieces and nephews.”
“Dr. Rusty changed my outlook on how pain is managed and can be healed. I was experiencing acute neck pain and even though he was 1,000 miles away, I couldn’t believe that after some specific questions followed by relaxation directions, my pain began to subside. At the time, I didn’t even realize he was healing me. I honestly thought it would be more of do this stretch, do that stretch situation. So, when he said, ‘How is it feeling now?’ and I realized it was almost gone, I was in shock. I learned over the past several years to reach out to him whenever I am experiencing pain, headaches, back aches, etc. Dr. Rusty is amazing!!”
