Discovery Psychotherapy Center

Christopher J. Barker, PhD

Specialty: Psychology

The director of Discovery Psychotherapy Center, Dr. Christopher Barker helps children and adults address issues ranging from anxiety and depression to phobias and trauma in a comfortable, home-like environment.

A licensed psychologist, Dr. Barker has provided individual, couple, and group therapy for almost three decades. The group practice accepts insurance and is home to therapists who are trained in all forms of therapy so that each child receives the services that best meet his or her needs. “Discovery is about finding within yourself the tools to grow and overcome, and this is true at any age,” says the father of three.

Dr. Barker offers therapies including cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, guided imagery and relaxation training. He received his MS in counseling psychology with a specialization in assessment from Radford University, clinical psychology MA from the New School for Social Research and PhD from Seton Hall University.

 Discovery Center is an amazing facility for any children with ADD, ADH, bi-polar disorder and learning disabilities. Dr. Barker and his staff are amazing, they are conveniently located in Morristown with ample parking, and their office is clean and a safe haven for children. Dr. Barker has treated my step son who has had ADD, ADH and bi-polar disorder for eight years. He's done an incredible job getting him through school, as we never thought he'd even graduate high school!
