Welcome to Barnett Therapy Services! We are excited to be offering individual and family therapy to meet your families communication needs. We are available for evaluations and therapy in Seminole and Orange counties. Billy offers mental health and family counseling; Lauren provides Speech and Language services.
We provide therapy services at a location convenient for you - at your home, daycare, school or at our office in Oviedo, Florida located at 905 South Lake Jessup Road.
Please click around on our website and get to know us. Then, contact us to let us know how we can help you! We look forward to talking with you soon.
We are committed to our faith in Jesus Christ. While we are licensed professionals in our fields, we also want to be sensitive to the desires and special circumstances that sometimes guide people to seek out help from the helping professions.
We believe that God has a purpose for all of us. We believe that He wants us to help each other. We draw upon our faith and truth from the Bible in our own lives and we do not separate our careers from our lives by offering only secular therapy. We want you to know that we strive to meet you in your struggles where you are.
We have been practicing in secular settings for years and are very comfortable in that type of setting, but we want to also be sensitive to the needs of those who are seeking Christian counseling and speech and language services.
We are excited to be at our new office! Check out some pictures!
We are offering seminars and workshops at this time. Contact us about availability for your group!
We recommend a variety of books that will encourage, enlighten and broaden your understanding of yourself and your loved ones. Check out our list here!
I once heard that in order to spot counterfeit money you should study the real thing instead of all of the different counterfeits out there. You could spend tons of time chasing all the different counterfeits but still not see them all. But if you spend time learning what real money looks like, no matter what the counterfeit looks like, you'll be able to spot it.
I feel that a similar situation exists with child development. You can learn about all sorts of developmental disorders (which does have value) but if you learn what is developmentally appropriate, any delay or disordered language will be quickly spotted and intervention can begin.
Families frequently ask me about developmental skills and whether or not their child is delayed or if their child should be able to do certain things. Teachers are often knowledgeable about the skills their age child should be able to do, but earlier and later developing skills are not so familiar.
We offer a Child Development Seminar geared towards parents that go through the skills children should have mastered by certain ages and what can be done at home to help enhance skills.
A teachers' workshop is also available for preschool teachers who work with 2 to 6 year olds.
