Diversifying Your Income Through Bariatric Mental Health Assessments with Ashlyn Douglass-Barnes, LCSW

Meet Ashlyn Douglass-Barnes, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and compassionate therapist in private practice. With a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Social Work from Florida State University, Ashlyn has worked in a variety of settings before heading into private practice including management and supervision of new therapists where Ashlyn learned her love of teaching, supporting, and mentorship. Ashlyn's specialization includes supporting individuals and couples before and after bariatric surgery. As a trained professional in pre-surgical mental health clearance, she offers comprehensive counseling tailored to the unique emotional and psychological aspects of the bariatric journey. Driven by a passion to teach and support other therapists and a commitment to filling a gap in training, Ashlyn Douglass-Barnes, LCSW, took the initiative to create her own specialized program to train mental health providers to conduct pre-surgical mental health clearances. Then realizing another gap created a directory of bariatric therapists.

With over a decade of practical experience, she recognized the need for comprehensive training in a specific area and decided to forge her own path. This self-created program equips practitioners with the necessary tools and expertise to excel in their work, ensuring the highest quality of care for those they serve.

Join Ashlyn Douglass-Barnes, LCSW, as she shares her insights and expertise gained through diversifying revenue streams, empowering professionals to deliver exceptional care and make a lasting impact in their practice and self-care.

It’s important to stress that these episodes are not meant to take the place of any work you’re doing with your therapist or doctor. In fact, please run these ideas by your counselor or doctor before you act on them to make sure you are ready for them or even fit for the suggestions. I can’t stress this enough; each person is unique and their situation is unique so please talk to your dr before starting anything new I may be suggesting.
