.

Wenona Barnes, CEO of LifeFocus Counseling and LifeLab has been advertising herself as a PhD and an expert in everything from drug testing to supervised visitation.

This is a lie. Ms. Barnes has been reprimanded multiple times by the Oklahoma State Board of Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselors the ONLY board that Ms. Barnes has to answer to. The FIRST time was July 14, 2008 for "Advertising a Ph.D. from Carrington University. Carrington is not recognized in accreditation by the U.S. Department of Education." The SECOND time is for the same thing and was filed on March 8,2013.

Ms. Barnes has not learned her lesson and has proven that she has no conscience about lying to unsuspecting people.

She states that she is an expert and has helped through the Murrah Building bombing, 9-11, and other tragedies. However, she is an expert in nothing but lying and deceiving well meaning people.

Do NOT use Wenona Barnes, Lifefocus Counseling or LifeLab. Before using her, please, PLEASE do your research.

Dr. Barnes is the most kind and educated woman I have ever worked with. She has gone beyond the call of duty with all of her clients, myself included. When you are in her waiting room, you can see letters of appreciation and acknowledgement from her last minute appearances at the 911 ground zero site and the Oklahoma City bombing. She is there when anyone needs her, you can call her and she is available 24-7 for emergencies. She works side by side with families to solve issues from divorce to teenage growing spurts. She covers such a vast area of issues that it is easy to say she is a "one stop shop". With Life Focus Counseling Services, you have everything you could possibly need thru times of trial and tribulation that life may throw at you.
Wenona volunteers regularly, participates in fundraisers and is honestly a positive contribution to our society. If you ever have the pleasure to work with Wenona (Dr. Barnes) you will not be disappointed. I recommend her for divorces, private therapy sessions, and any court related issues or just to have a good conversation with. She is truly a blessing.

Anyone truly wanting to earn their PhD knows which University to obtain the degree from.
Which University?s degree?s will transfer from State to State with out question. I have a feeling that this Juils person doesn?t exist, what client would know to use the verbiage ?governing bodies?? I have a feeling the so called ?Dr.? herself was attempting to take a try at redeeming her so called reputation. And since we are on the subject of reputation, her so called peers in the OKC area are very well aware of the fake PhD she is trying to pass.

Wenona Barnes applied for her LMFT at Oklahoma
Licensed Marital and Family Therapist (LMFT)
Oklahoma Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Board
Oklahoma State Dept. of Health

She submitted her degree fro Carrington University and when the Oklahoma Licensing Board sent her a letter requesting further information regarding her degree from Carrington University, they never received a response from Mrs. Barnes. This is all information that you can verify.

I think it?s extremely important for people who have the shady behaviors in their professional life to be called out on it. Consumers need to be aware of the mass production of the degree mills and how many ?so called? professionals in their area are obtaining these degrees & are using them to further their careers and business.

This is a listing of colleges and universities which are not currently accredited by an accrediting body of the Council on Higher Education Accreditation. Degrees from these institutions will not be accepted by the Department of Civil Service as satisfying any educational requirements indicated on job specifications. Please note that this list is not all inclusive; unaccredited schools will be added as I/we become aware of them.

Carrington University is listed among others. Any one who obtains a degree from any of these listed University's knows that they are buying a degree. If they don't, then they are truly an incompetent individual!

I am a current employee of LifeFocus Counseling and would like to state for the record that Mrs. Barnes is a very well respected Counselor in her Community. Mrs. Barnes is well respected by the Bar Association and those that she works closely with in the business community. At no time has she ever intentionally deceived her staff or clients. Mrs. Barnes received her license from the University in Good Faith and Standings and has many other accreditations to her name. Mrs. Barnes is very educated and knowledgable in her field and life of work. Along with her clients, she treats her staff and those she works with in a very kind and caring manner and she truly cares about those she helps daily and revolves her schedule to assist when she possibly can.

Check your information before believing those with nothing better to do than bash others. I called both of the governing bodies on this counselor, her licensing board (Oklahoma Licensed Alcohol & Drg Counselor Board) and her certification body (Employee Assistance Professional Association) to find that she is in good standing. Sounds like to me...the person making these statements could use some counseling!

I have to tell you from a client's perspective...it really doesn't matter. I went to 3 counselors prior to seeing Wenona, and I can tell you that she literally saved my life. I was about to give up. For that, it truly doesn't matter what credentials are behind someone's name anyway, what matters is that that counselor is willing to go the extra mile, makes you feel comfortable enough to open up and talk things out, and is knowledgeable in your area of trouble. I could care less if she had a high school diploma...I do care that she could see past what the other counselors I tried could not. If you need help, I completely recommend her. Her office is comfortable, relaxing, and professional. She is nurturing, confronting, and intelligent.

At the end of the day...she saved my life. What else do I need to say? From a client's standpoint...she is great! From her governing bodies...she is in good standing.

This is not a reputable place of business. The business owner claims to hold Phd but it's not verifiable by the state of Oklahoma.
