About Me

Philosophy: We are all Souls living on this human earth in a human body.  We all have unprocessed childhood experiences that have shaped our current belief systems and often these do not serve us to live our most easeful & abundant life.  We become triggered, we become sad, we become stuck, we become anxious, we become angry, we become ill, we experience physical pain, we question the big stuff like, "what’s my purpose in life?".  When you dive inward on that personal journey to heal, life starts to shift.  You begin to see the beautiful ride that life can be.  You recognize that not all storms come to disrupt your life; some come to clear your path.  Turning inward, opening up, and feeling safe inside your own skin is just the beginning…. 



Dr. Cary Barberich, PT, DPT received her Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2007 from Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons.  After graduating with a BFA in Acting from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts in 1998, she danced professionally with several ballet & theater companies in New York, LA, Chicago & South Carolina.  


Dr. Barberich began her Pilates training in 1998, is certified by Broadway Pilates, Ltd in New York City and Resolution Wellness in San Francisco.  Dr. Barberich's diverse physical therapy background includes pelvic floor dysfunction and pain, including postpartum health (certified in Pelvic Floor Health Levels 1 & 2), neurological conditions including CVA, PD and TBI, vestibular/balance disorders (including BPPV), general orthopedic diagnoses and the specialty of Dance Physical Therapy.

Cary completed Kimberly Beekman's Inner Alignment Level 1, 2, and 3 programs and is a certified Inner Alignment Coach & Soul Retrieval Healer.  She believes the mind-body-spirit connection is a true pathway for integrated healing, and that healing is absolutely possible for all.

Cary continues to dance and perform in the local Encinitas area and is the proud mama to 2 girls, Lucy (10) and Ruby (8) and married to her supportive hubby, Chris.

“Working with Cary during my maternity leave was the best thing I could have done. She really helped me build my strength and body awareness. And it was super convenient -- she came to my home, held my baby when he needed it, and helped me incorporate him into Pilates moves. Pilates with Cary was different than the group classes and individual sessions I'd done in the past -- she hones in on the key muscles, helps you visualize the movements you're trying to make, and really demonstrates things in a way that sticks. Plus, she' got a wealth of knowledge in PT for adults and babies. I'm back to work now but will carry the practice forward.”
