Janna Carroll McMasters, MA, LPC

EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

I never thought I would be working with trauma survivors, but it has ended up being the population I love serving the most! I love working with individuals who have experienced major hurts in their lives and helping them understand how to grow through those things to be a fully integrated, whole self. I come from a Christian perspective, but I integrate faith and spirituality as each client needs/desires.

Education & Experience

I graduated with my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2019 from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. I worked at a private counseling practice specializing in trauma in Monroe, LA for 2 years and then I moved to the Louisiana Baptist Children's Home to work at the Granberry Counseling Center as a full time therapist. I predominantly do trauma therapy with adults from the community and children and teens on our campus who have been removed from their parents by DCFS. I also do a lot of trauma and life skills work with women who live on our campus who have either escaped domestic violence homes or are trying to get their children back after having them removed by DCFS. We do parenting and life skills work in addition to trauma reprocessing.
