Dr. Barnes' Philosophy of Wellness
“When Needs Are Met, Relationships Flourish."
"When needs are met relationships flourish" is the foundation of successful relationships, lowered stress levels, improved mental health care, and results in increased life satisfaction and functioning of our client's mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical health.
"Experiencing a balanced life requires a therapeutic understanding of the needs of the "whole person." Treatment modalities must include empowering therapeutic approaches that are multi-dimensional, and not singular in focus. There are biopsychosocial concerns that must be assessed and ruled out. For example, a person presenting with depression may have a low thyroid (biological causation), requiring a thyroid panel by their medical doctor to rule out low thyroid as the cause of their depression, along with a metabolic panel, which may reveal other factors responsible for the symptoms often associated with depression. Even so, there are holistic remedies that have been found by international researchers to parallel prescription medications in efficacy, that do not produce the risks or the side effects of prescription medications. Cognitive-behavioral therapy is not yet indicated until this possible biological causation is ruled out. According to a study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), December 2018 issue, only 17% of diagnoses made in a doctor's office were accurate. In order for 21st-century healthcare to be effective, the only model that is more likely to result in best practices care for clients/patients is the holistic model which is multi-disciplinary in collaboration for better continuity of care." - Dr. Barnes
Dr. Barnes is committed to meeting those needs, tailoring the therapeutic modality(ies) treatment planning protocol according to the individual's therapeutic needs using a holistic (whole-person) model of wellness that was founded in homeopathy by Samuel Hahnemann and Constantine Herring. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), the globally accepted work of Albert Ellis, its father, and other therapeutic modalities are the standards used for providing a balanced holistic therapeutic approach to mental health.
"Clinical diagnoses are based on the diagnostic criteria outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM-V).
"Between 2006 and 2021 more than 70% of our clients came to us as referrals from pediatric physicians, medical doctors, schools, and individual word-of-mouth." - Dr. W. T. Barnes, PhD., DD, LHD.

Many of our counselors speak multiple languages and have lived and worked in North America, South America, Eastern, and Western Europe, the Philippines, and Africa. We have a healthy worldview and a strong appreciation for people and cultures around the globe. "And He (GOD) made from one man every nation of mankind to live on the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their lands and territories. Acts 17:26 (Amplified Bible)
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 the root causes of the presenting problem(s) not a symptom approach which according to the Journal for American Medical Association (JAMA) yields only a 17% accurate diagnostic rate in doctors' offices.
At Barnes Holistic Counseling Therapies Institute (BHCTI)
The client is viewed as a spiritual being created in the awesome image of GOD, as we know and understand Him.
The client is seen as a human being with spiritual, emotional, psychological/mental, biopsychosocial, physical, educational, financial/socio-economical, and intellectual needs that influence their capacity to adjust to environmental conditions and often facilitates or inhibits connections and bonding with others.
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 experience 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 which we refer to as wellness.
GET HELP and discover the reason holistic counseling and wellness therapeutic modalities are replacing traditional medicine worldwide. People are tired of being medicated, feeling drugged, becoming addicted, and/or suffering from the negative side effects of prescription drugs!
Help yourself or a family member you know who is stuck in prescription drug dependency, abuse, and/or addiction.
Discover the power of resonance frequency and energy therapy, Bach flower essences, and other homeopathic remedies. There is a wholesome alternative WELLNESS approach that works! There is a place for allopathic medicine, however, its place is not to tell the well-educated public they don't know how they feel or what they should have the freedom to have access to.
Receive a TMS (transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) referral for persons suffering from long-term depression, autism, and bone regeneration therapy. It works! I would not recommend this treatment if I had not had it myself or witnessed the amazing results of a pain-free advanced technology approved by the FDA, Medicare, and the Veterans Administration.
"No matter the illness, infirmity, affliction, predisposition, or disease state, let us help you improve your quality of life. With GOD, all things are possible, and with cognitive-behavioral therapy, homeopathy, a complementary alternative approach to wellness, and by applying multiple disciplines to your wellness issue(s), the impossible is being achieved naturally or in combination with low-dose pharmacological approaches and without side-effects every day." - Bishop Dr. W. T. Barnes, PhD., DD, LHD
