Karen D. Baird, LPC, LPC-S, LAC, NCC

Owner and Clinical Director

The office of Baird & Associates Professional  Counseling Services, LLC  is closed and I am no longer working full time in private practice.  I may treat a small number of private clients  for mental health or addiction therapy, however, that number will be limited as I am currently working as the Clinical Supervisor for New Day Recovery.   Although I will not be working in private practice full time, I am still available for clinical supervision for persons seeking licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor. 


  • BS in Psychology, Louisiana State University-Shreveport
  • MA in Counseling and Guidance, Louisiana Tech University
  • Prior to my career in Counseling, I worked with children and family services, as well as the juvenile justice system in Arkansas, Georgia, and Louisiana. Since beginning my career in Counseling, I have worked in the correctional setting, drug court, worked with compulsive gamblers, as well as persons with severe mental illness.
