ABOUT ME

Johnetta Barnes is a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor in the state of Georgia and a National Certified Counselor. I have experience in supervision and training of counseling supervisees within the field. I earned my Bachelor's degree from Saint Leo University and received my Master's degree in Professional Counseling from Argosy University. Professional memberships include Licensed Professional Counselor Association of Georgia (LPCA-GA), American Counseling Association (ACA) and National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC)

I have over a decade of experience in working with adults, children, families and couples. I have extensive experience in working with individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, PTSD, adjustment and mood disorders. My experience includes providing counseling in private practice, nursing home and community settings, including working with various backgrounds, such as multicultural and the LGBT community.

Though my preferred treatment modality is CBT, my therapeutic approach is a collaborative one that is client centered utilizing various therapeutic approaches. I believe that everyone has a purpose and a unique set of qualities within them for that driven purpose. Once a person has gained a level of self-awareness, self-confidence and utilize learned coping skills then they will have the tools for success in their life.
