About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia, and I have almost 4 years experience working in providing psychotherapy. I have worked with clients with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, couples counseling, parenting, occupational therapy, ADHD, ADD, ODD, OCD, etc. I have also worked with those enduring family violence, physical trauma, and emotional abuse.

My counseling style is interactive, and I believe it is best to view therapy as a collaboration between myself and those I work with. Respect and compassion are also very important to me during the counseling process, and I am aware that therapy can be a stressful event for those struggling with emotional hardships. My approach is cognitive-behavior therapy and I tailor our conversations and treatment plan help you create goals, coping strategies for difficult situations, and resources needed during the process.

Written by M.I. on Jun 02, 2022 after therapy with Carnel for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Carnel was quickly able to assess what’s been going on with me in just one session. She understands where I am and has offered solutions and insight into how to handle my situation. Having anxiety makes it challenging to rationally think through my situation but after talking with Carnel I do feel better.

Written by N.I. on Jan 06, 2022 after therapy with Carnel for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, and relationship issues

I’ve thought about seeking therapy for awhile but was hesitant about the cost and finding the first therapist. BetterHelp has been such a blessing for me by matching me with Carnel. She is the BEST! She’s done such a great job of listening to my areas of concerns and offering me new tools/perspective to deal with them. I wish I would have done this sooner but am grateful to have started this journey. Looking forward to continuing to work through everything with her!

Carnel is amazing HANDS DOWN!! She is very supportive and takes the time to listen to you even if you tend to tangent off into other stories. Carnel has been flexible and attentive. She is able to recognize when she makes a mistake in the moment and ensure that you feel comfortable. After a bad experience with a previous BetterHelp therapist, I was very hesitant but Carnel changed around that feeling with ease. I would recommend her to everyone I know because she is such a pleasant person who also keeps it Real! I look forward to writing another review in the future !

Carnel is wonderful. She really listens and asks great questions to help you work through what you're feeling.

Nobody is perfect. We all make mistakes, have fears and get overwhelmed by life. Carnel is providing me the tools to get through those tough times and helping me to appreciate the good ones. She listens and whenever I can't find the words to describe my mentality she guides me in a way to finally relay them. Getting better takes time and I am confident I will be able to get to a better mindset, thanks to her.

We have only had two sessions but so far she is a wonderful listener and offers sound, wise support. She has quickly understood my situation and knows when to listen to what might seem “random” or “ranting” but also knows when to guide the conversation toward meaningful insight and progress. I am excited to continue speaking with her.

Dr. Jones is by far the best Counselor that I've been priviledged to work with. She's very attentive and understanding and makes you feel worthy of being in a better place emotionally. Listening and giving her fair advice is one of the things I like most about her. Each session has been positive and truly uplifting.

Carnel is very nice, fun to talk to, and, most importantly, unafraid to press you on what you might be hesitant to reveal. She won't walk away from a session not understanding your concerns, and she won't recommend treatment if you don't think it's right. She's quick to hear your concerns, and ready with alternative plans and techniques. She doesn't prescribe treatment, she asks you if the treatment she recommends feels right. She's great.
