Chelsea Carnes is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Masters of Social Work from Texas State University and a Bachelors of Social Work from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. She is trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EMDR, and has extensive advanced training in play therapy and sandtray therapy.

Her past experiences working within many community systems have included an advocacy center for children, in hospital emergency departments, and as a juvenile probation officer. In all of her roles, Chelsea has worked closely with law enforcement and the court system, assisting clients and families in receiving the resources necessary to be successful.
