Carla Barnes, Ed.D., LPC

I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC), certified school counselor and education leader. I earned both a master and doctoral degree in educational leadership from Lamar University. Additionally, I have a Master in Education in Counseling and Development and a Master of Science in Nutrition. My advanced educational degrees compliment each other and help me to effectively respond to the complex mental health needs of clients. As a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA) and American School Counseling Association (ASCA), I follow the codes and ethical standards of both national organizations.
