Savannah Hill Conner

Ph.D, LPC, Executive Director | 479.799.4720 | savannah@oakscounseling.net

It is an honor to work as a counselor for Oaks Counseling. I have found that life is messy, but also filled with such beauty. Someone once said, “protest the chaos with something beautiful” and I think that is what the counseling journey is about; taking that which is broken in our lives and trying to make sense of it all. I received my masters in Community Counseling and Marriage & Family Therapy from John Brown University. I earned my Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision through Regent University in August of 2014. My passions and experience are in working with adolescents, women who are struggling with infertility, relationships where conflict and intimacy are a struggle, anxiety, and grief. It is a joy and an honor to be a part of people’s stories as they process the messiness that life can bring.

Carrie Henry

MS, LMFT, LPC | 479.445.3407 | carrie@oakscounseling.net

I love the concept of life as a journey. While we desire to live purposeful lives with depth and meaning, we often find ourselves unprepared to navigate the complexities of relationships and face some of the unexpected roadblocks along the way. My heart is to join people on their journeys, while providing practical help and hope along the way. I have over fifteen years of clinical experience in a variety of settings. I really enjoy working with all ages of women on all types of womens’ issues, especially eating disorders, grief, infertility, anxiety, depression and relationship issues. I work from a family systems and emotion focused perspective and also love to incorporate art and sand tray techniques when possible. I received a bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of Arkansas and a dual masters degree in Marriage & Family Therapy and Community Counseling from John Brown University. I am also an Arkansas Board Approved Supervisor for LACs and LAMFTs and enjoy investing in new therapists in the counseling field.

Sydney Jackson

MS, LPC | 479.381.0106 | sydney@oakscounseling.net

Every individual and family has a story to tell. Sometimes the story is marked by pain and confusion. My goal in counseling is to provide a safe place for clients to share their stories, while providing hope, clarity and practical insight along the way. I enjoy working with women, children, adolescents and their families on a variety of issues including trauma, anxiety, depression, relational issues and grief. I incorporate play and art therapy techniques in my work with children, adolescents and their families. I received my Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, with an emphasis in Community Counseling, from John Brown University in the spring of 2013.

Brandi Harris

MS, LPC, LMFT | 918.261.3194 | brandi@oakscounseling.net

I am real person; a real mom and wife chasing the balance of life, love, and truth. I love people, as difficult as they are at times, and I have a heavy heart for those weighed down by the pain of life and loss. I especially enjoy working with clients who are dealing with relationship and parenting struggles – as parenting has probably been the most humbling (or should I say humiliating?) experience of my own life. I am an LPC and LMFT, and have been practicing since 2007. I received a B.A. in Philosophy from the University of Tulsa and an M.S. in Marriage and Family Therapy and Community Counseling from JBU.

Chad Lee

MS, LPC, LMFT | 479.719.8506 |chad@oakscounseling.net

Therapy provides individuals and couples the opportunity to process trauma, grief, anxiety, and hurt in a safe environment. Every individual has experienced some of these symptoms and has learned how to manage their pain, in both healthy and unhealthy ways. One of my hopes through the therapeutic process is that clients will learn how their past hurts are causing them distress in their current relationships. I have been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (E.M.D.R) therapy and use this therapy to help individuals and couples work through both past and present distress. I also provide family therapy and have experience working with children and adolescents. I received my Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, with emphasis in Community Counseling, from John Brown University in the fall of 2013.

Leah Jacobs

MS, LAC | 501.416.8382 | leah@oakscounseling.net

Life, with all its challenges, certainly is not easy. We all need help navigating the more difficult seasons. It is my passion and, I believe, my calling to provide a supportive and non-judgmental space for my clients to share their struggles. In our fast-paced world, caring for ourselves is often made a lower priority; whether you are experiencing a traumatic time of grief or simply struggling to maintain balance in your everyday life, counseling can play a vital role in helping you reach emotional peace. I earned my masters degree in Counseling at John Brown University. I do not take lightly that people choose to share their lives with me; I consider it an incredible honor to play that role in your life. .
