Laura Barnes, LCMHC, NCC, BCB
Laura is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina. She holds a National Board Certification, is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and is Internationally certified in biofeedback from the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance governing board.
She provides a trauma-informed and culturally sensitive space where she works with children, teens, and adults. Her experiences range from the K-12 school setting, hospital settings, working in client's homes and in the community in community mental health, and working in an outpatient therapy setting.
She considers herself to be LGBTQIA+ affirming and culturally responsive counselor.
Her areas of expertise include trauma/PTSD/Complex PTSD, anxiety, general life stress/changes, and stress management.
Laura is skilled at helping individuals gain awareness over their physical responses to stressors and obtain control over the associated communications. I send her individuals from the couples with whom I work so that they can better identify their own triggers and learn to be present and grow with their partner in conflict. Lydia Filazzola
