Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Dr. Ozella Barnes
As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and state certified Domestic Violence Professional, my specialty is working with individuals who have experienced significant trauma, violence, pain or loss in their home or community.
I am passionate about helping people heal from the inside out, and am exceptionally skilled at establishing trust and positive client rapport. I practice within the framework of cultural competence and humility.
With over 24 years of clinical experience, I have gained the opportunity to work with children, adolescents and adults who struggle with PTSD, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, marginalization and sexual trauma. I am able to diffuse stressful situations quickly with my clients, as well as larger crisis management situations.
In addition to my clinical experience, I am also a civil rights advocate for marginalized populations, including the elderly and LGBTQ. I have a solid educational foundation and a passion for working with people who have experienced out of home care (i.e. residential and group homes, emergency shelters and crisis care), as well as those in underserved and impoverished communities.
