Laura Barnett, LCSW
Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Art Therapist. I have been practicing counseling and therapy since 2009. I earned a master's degree in social work from Loyola University and a master's degree in counseling psychology, with a focus in art therapy f the Adler School of Professional Psychology.rom I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults and elderly. In the past, I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings, including in the emergency department, inpatient psychiatric hospitalization units, partial hospitalization programs, intensive outpatient programs, schools and a community counseling center. I specialize in both talk and art therapy practices. I am extremely passionate about helping you to reflect on your presenting problems and identifying realistic solutions, as well as working with you to see through with those changes.

Learn about Laura Barnett

Care Philosophy

I believe that the groundwork for successful therapeutic change begins with a strong, trusting relationship between you, the client, and myself, which I emphasize from the beginning of the therapy. Through a holistic perspective, I utilize talk therapy and/or art therapy to explore your identified areas of focus. When appropriate, I will also bring in additional theoretical approaches, including Relational Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. 

I believe it is often beneficial to involve your family and school/work, if appropriate, as these areas often impact our lives. Family sessions can be conducted as needed, as well as collaboration with your school or work. In addition, parent sessions are available, as well.
