Our Mission

To improve the lives of families by providing effective therapy services, educating families and caregivers, serving our clients and staff, and pursuing excellence.

Why choose us?

We started Barnett Therapy Services to meet the needs of families in our community. We are excited to work with individuals as well as couples and families.

 

We have the unique opportunity to understand and integrate aspects of both of our professions. In addition to being experts in our own fields, we have experiences that overlap both professions. Lauren worked at a behavior school and with children with a variety of mental health issues. Billy has worked with individuals who in addition to needing counseling have varing forms of communication deficits. Communication disorders and mental health concerns can go hand in hand.  

 

While you do not need to have both a communication disorder and mental health concerns to receive therapy from Barnett Therapy Services, we do not shy away from those involved cases that require both services. We offer services that look at the whole person and the whole family, not just pieces of who you are.

Our team uses proven strategies and techniques that help you improve communication.
