Barry received his Masters degree in family therapy at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia where he studied contextual therapy with its founder, Ivan Boszormenyi-Nagy.

Barry’s professional activities have included in-home family therapy, outpatient substance abuse treatment, consultation and training for Headstart programs and group homes, and investigating misconduct complaints for the New Hampshire Board of Examiners.
