Carlis Hughes, MS, LPC, NCC
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I am dedicated to working with teens and adults who are dealing with anxiety, depression, managing their anger, and trauma-related issues. To help individuals achieve their goals, I believe in meeting them where they are. Building rapport and having trust between the therapist and client are essential to maintaining the therapeutic relationship.
My name is Carlis Hughes, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia. My educational background includes an Associate of Science degree in psychology from College of Coastal Georgia, a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology & human services from Clayton State University, and a Master of Science degree in clinical mental health counseling from Mercer University. My specialization is working with teens and adults who are making major life transitions.
I collaborate with clients to help them identify and resolve their problems. I pride myself on empowering individuals to gain a sense of autonomy for their lives. I encourage clients to manage and cope with their emotions in a constructive way to make decisions with the best possible outcomes. My passion is working with people to find ways to enrich every aspect of their lives.
I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness to help clients to realize their goals and become a better emotionally healthier version of themselves. Are you ready to take this journey to the new you?
I believe that being aware of what brings you happiness and serenity is the only way to “preserve your peace.” Inner peace is a priceless gift that everyone should have. If you are
