Philosophy of Wellness
"When Needs Are Met, Relationships Flourish."
This is the foundation of our belief --- our client's mental health, spiritual health, and physical health needs are of the utmost importance for experiencing a balanced life. Our success is defined by how well we serve others and help individuals, families, and groups get from a variety of therapies what they need. Our team is committed to meeting those needs, tailoring the therapeutic modality(ies) treatment planning protocol to the individual using a holistic (whole-person) model of wellness as founded in homeopathy by Samuel Hahnemann and Constantine Herring. Cognitive-Behavioral and other therapeutic modalities are used to provide a balanced approach to mental health. Clinical diagnoses are based on the criteria as outlined in the DSM-V. As a result, more than half of our clients come to us from individual word of mouth referrals." --- Dr. Wm. T. Barnes, PhD., DCC, LHD.
"We welcome the opportunity to assist you with your spiritual, counseling, psychological, psychiatric, homeopathic educational, mental health, and substance abuse support needs.
If you are fighting a difficult battle getting doctors to listen to you because you are dealing with a unique, odd, or unusually undetectable parasitic infection, please give us a call and let us assist you in getting relief.
You are not alone! Our infectious disease doctors have identified, supported, and treated Lyme Disease, nationally and internationally acquired zoonotic diseases (diseases transmitted from animals to humans), and use laboratories all over the US certified in tropical illnesses. Millions of Americans are suffering from the misgivings of traditional medicine and are frustrated at the quick 6-minute assessment of their parasite infestation, often being mislabeled, misdiagnosed, and wrongfully characterized as delusional. Parasites have been shown to cause mental and neurological symptoms according to the World Health Organization (WHO) and are present in every country.
"All too often, illnesses like Morgellons, Lyme Disease, Taenias (tapeworm infection), and other blood borne, water borne, tissue borne, & vector transmitted illnesses (diseases caused by insect and animal bites or contact) are said to be non-existent in the US by uninformed doctors. This is not consistent with the nations premiere authority on disease---The Center For Disease Control, nor will any pet owner or veterinarian support this ridiculous notion, yet patients are made to suffer by the lack of attention to endemic illnesses." --- Dr. Robert Jakubik, PhD.LHD.
The outdoors man, the hiker, the equestrian, and the urban dweller are all surrounded by wildlife. Disease is being imported in the food supply from countries that use human feces to fertilize their fields, in workers without health care, and your animal (dog, cat, bird) is likely decreasing your health from being on the sofa, sleeping in your bed, licking you in your face. Hulda Clarke, a pioneer in parasitic research and health found in her 50 years of treating patients, not one stayed well as long as they kept their animal in their home, and they would relapse once the animal was reintroduced back into the home following curative treatments. According to Dr. Robert Jakubik, PhD., "Mental symptoms are commonly associated with organic causes such as infections, toxins released from parasites, organ diseases they cause, and the body's own flight of fight nervous system response in awareness to something being wrong, as our Creator intended it to be. It is our internal warning system to which we are to listen and respond. Holistic counseling psychology integrates proven homeopathic approaches with talk therapy, Ayurveda, Western, Eastern, and so-called modern therapies based on research-based best practices in global wellness care."
Perhaps, you or a member of your family has a chronic illness. According to Dr. Wanda S. Barnes, LMHC, "The stressors of chronic illness can be very demanding. Most are unprepared for the potentially destabilizing crises precipitated by these spontaneous life events."

for the world. Many of our counselors speak multiple languages and have

strong appreciation for peoples and cultures around the globe.
We do consider and understand the special needs of persons with physical, emotional, and psychological challenges. Our holistic counseling professionals work closely with medical professionals to ensure we are treating root causes of the presenting problem(s) not a symptoms approach which according to the American Medical Association (AMA) yields only a 17% accurate diagnostic rate in doctors offices.
At Barnes Holistic Counseling Therapies Institute (BHCTI):
1) The client is viewed as a spiritual being created in the awesome image of GOD as we know and understand Him.
2) The client is seen as a human being with emotional, psychological/mental, biopsychosocial, physical, educational, financial, and intellectual capacity which facilitates connection and bonding with others.
3) The client is a physical being that must be nurtured, respected, and cared for holistically (spirit, mind, & body) in order to have a healthy expression in life.
The spirit, mind, and body frequently experiences emotional trauma, physical injury, organic degeneration, infection, and/or insult as a result of deprivation, genetics, negative life experiences, negative self-talk, low self-esteem, neglect, unmet needs, and present as organic deterioration and degenerative processes. We view all these processes as connected and must be treated in totality in order for the person to return to a balanced state of homeostasis.
The entire being must be treated. As a result, our clients report a 98% satisfaction rate. Many had been treated unsuccessfully by allopathic practitioners, psychologists, and psychiatrists whose training and field of knowledge offered toxic drugs as a solution. Many allopathic doctors admit the "medical model" of disease is simply inadequate and ineffective as a single method or modality of treatment. For some clients, to help temporarily stabilize them, allopathic drugs are necessary. However, in only a relatively few diagnostic cases is it necessary for this to go on indefinitely. Scientific research, including the studying of alternative methods of treatment from various cultures, is leading us back to recognizing the importance of plants, the rain forests, trace minerals, essential oils, flower essences, organic food as medicine, natural and homeopathic remedies, acupuncture, energy medicine, and spirituality as it relates to healing.
It is scientifically irresponsible to ignore the effects of long-term use of psychotropics, opioid pain killers, over prescribing of antibiotics, and other synthetic drugs. The complications of long-term prescription drug use have proliferated addiction in America while making billions of dollars for pharmaceutical manufacturers, insurance companies, pain management mills, and allopathic doctors. Problems for patients include but are not limited to tolerance, dependency, psychotic withdrawals, insomnia, loss of sex drive, confusion, dizziness, increased presentation of the behaviors being treated, worsening the condition, creating additional disorders or health conditions, and the possibility of increased risks for suicide.
These statements are supported by research articles published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, The Journal for the American Medical Association, The British Journal LANCET, The Journal for the American Pediatric Association, the Physician's Desk Reference, Bridgeport University (Bridgeport Connecticut), Yale University, and countless Pharmaceutical Journals.
"The prevalence and appropriateness of acupuncture for addictions is well established. The US federal government’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (2007), the United Nations (2006),the State of New Mexico (Bigelow, 2008), as well as the US Department of Defense/Veteran’s Affairs (2010) have each published best practice guidelines that address the value of acupuncture for chemical dependency. (NADA - National Acupuncture Detoxification Association)...and have now approved this protocol for use in Community Mental Health to treat a variety of behavioral health issues."
