A Multi-Social Services Organization

The Doctor Nurse Hospital Counseling Service (DNHCS) is an Excelsior Multi-Cultural Institute, Inc. (XLCR) program. DNHCS’s psychotherapeutic interventions promote psychological, emotional, and physical wellness by providing mental health and substance use counseling, support services, and sexual health education. Our goal is to use a stellar Holistic Harm Reduction approach/model with individuals to develop effective strategies that address issues impacting their overall quality of life. The individual, group, and family counseling services are provided with unconditional positive regard through Tele-Health Counseling using the internet and office visits.

The DNHCS implements the most effective, innovative, and up-to-date therapeutic counseling regimens to deliver high-quality interventions and social services. Services are customized for the particular needs of each consumer.

A wholesome and nurturing approach that gestalts the issues that need to be addressed is implemented. Accepting the person where they are at and assessing one's lifespan is the key factor for healing.

The DNHCS's therapeutic regimens' focus is that individuals have repressed issues they never resolved as a child. And those same repossessed issues resurface, often causing abnormal cognitive processes and very underage inappropriate behaviors.

Specialized/Exceptional innovative and advent-grade treatments include the following:

-“741 Hertz” (Cure and Prevention for COVID-19 W/O a Vaccine)

-“Reflection Of Feelings”

-“10 Ways To Free Yourself From Yourself” (Includes purchase of self-help book)

-“Empowerment (Energy) Transmutation”

-“Positive Mental Conditioning”

-“Reiki Therapy” (Hands-On Healing)

-“Moral Recognition Therapy”

-“Drug and Alcohol Addiction Remission
