Laura Barnes, LCMHC, NCC, BCB



CEO of Barnes Biofeedback, PLLC

Experienced Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor

International Certification in Biofeedback

National Certified Counselor

EMDR trained Therapist

I graduated with a Masters in School Counseling, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and Higher Education Counseling from East Carolina University (ECU) in 2015.

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina. I have a National Board Certification ( and International Biofeedback Certification from the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance ( Earning National Board Certification demonstrates that I have voluntarily met high national standards for the practice of counseling. The biofeedback certification allows me to work with clients using a psychophysiological approach to enhance the counseling services I provide.  I have recently added EMDR training as one of the ways in which I help clients heal.  If you are interested in learning more about EMDR, visit this website: 

I believe that black lives matter, love is love, science is real, women rights are human rights, I believe healthcare is a human right and not a privilege and every BODY is deserving of love/support/healing. I believe that we are made of many parts and that our overall wellness cannot exist without mental clarity.  I value therapy for my own personal self, and as a result, I value and cherish the opportunity to be a part of someone else's therapy journey.  

I provide a trauma informed and culturally sensitive space where I utilize my trainings in EMDR, biofeedback and psychotherapy with children, teens, and adults. My areas of expertise include trauma/PTSD/Complex PTSD, anxiety, general life stress/changes, and stress management. 

Unfortunately, the mental health field often lacks diversity. If you are seeking a therapist, I encourage you to ask questions in order to feel like the therapeutic space and relationship you will enter is competent and sensitive to your unique lived experiences.

I welcome questions to ensure a safe space for ALL.
