About Dr. Barbour

Susan E. Barbour, Ed.D., Psychologist/Psychoanalyst

I completed my doctoral degree at Rutgers University in 1994 and then became a licensed psychologist in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. I am also credentialed with the National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology.

Training to become a psychoanalyst begins after you complete credentialing as a licensed psychologist. I completed my psychoanalytic training in 2015, through the Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Institute. Prior to that I received a certificate with a specialty in Object Relations Theory and Practice (2002) from the International Institute of Object Relations.

With experience working in university, clinical and hospital setting, I’ve been in private practice for many years. I am a faculty member at the Wisconsin and Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Institutes, and also Assistant Clinical Professor in the department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Medicine/Medical College of Wisconsin.

My specialty is to provide depth and integrated work. Being a psychoanalyst has broadened my understanding of human experience and motives, and the way people’s personalities form repeated patterns in thinking and feeling. With these understandings I can best be of help to you.
