Your counseling will be specifically designed to meet your personal needs.
Family Counseling is at the heart of what we do at Refuge Counseling of Arkansas. When your family can sit together and work through your conflicts with our experienced counselor, you can finally heal your relationships.
There is no way around it. Relationships are tough to maintain. Sometimes, the biggest cause of family conflict is a problem with communication between partners. When you and your partner get on the same team, together you can overcome just about anything that life throws at you. My goal is to help you learn to communicate in a way that gives you the best chance for success in your relationship.
We don't live in a bubble. What we are dealing with in our life does have an impact on the people around us. Likewise, we are affected by the attitudes, feelings, and choices of others in our world. If you are struggling personally in some area of your life, I would love to help you overcome it so you can live the life you desire.
Trauma Recovery Therapy
Trauma is defined as an event or set of events that have left you feeling confused, hurt, fearful, an on edge. These events seem to have a very negative effect on many areas of your life. Trauma can negatively impact your sleep, appetite, and the way you engage with people around you. Whether you have experienced physical, sexual, or emotional trauma, I have been uniquely trained to help you work through the feelings and thoughts directly related to these experiences. The good news is that recovery is possible.
Maybe you are thinking, "I know this counseling thing would be good for me," but you live in a rural area or it is very difficult to get to the office for any number of reasons. Well, you are in luck. I am equipped to offer all of the services listed above in a confidential online format as well. I use a secure and confidential teleconferencing platform that offers video and voice communication, along with a chat option for typing questions or comments. All you need is a private internet connection, a valid email address, and a little time. Also, many private insurances do pay for services provided in office and online. When we schedule our first appointment, I will get your email address so I can send you an invitation link for the online platform. You can long on from your computer or a mobile device. For optimal performance, you will need access to a high speed internet connection.
If you have completed a Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health or another counseling program that makes you eligible for Licensed Associate Counselor status with the Arkansas Board of Examiners in Counseling, I am specialized to provide clinical supervision to new LACs for the purpose of honing your counseling skills and getting you on your way to your independent practice. Please give me a call or shoot me an email if you need supervision or consultation services. I am equipped to provide these services in person and online as well.
