PH.D, LPC, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR | 479.799.4720 | SAVANNAH@OAKSCOUNSELING.NET
Oaks Counseling began in 2011 and it has been one of my greatest honors to watch it develop into a place where people of all ages and backgrounds can receive 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 experience is in working with adolescents, women who are struggling with infertility, relationships where conflict and intimacy are a struggle, anxiety, depression, and grief.

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 20 years of clinical experience in a variety of settings.I really enjoy working with a variety of issues, including eating disorders, grief, infertility, issues of spirituality and deconstruction, trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. I work from a family systems and emotion focused perspective and am trained in EMDR. I 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.

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.

The Two Mountains metaphor best describes how I see the counseling relationship. I am a fellow traveler on this journey called life. We are both on this journey. We each have a mountain to climb. You’re on your mountain over there and I’m on my mountain across the valley over here. We’re both part of the way up our mountains and neither of us have “arrived”. But I can see you over there on your mountain and I can see your struggle. My perspective from over here (that is my objectivity, my own life experience, and my education and training) allows me to see you on your path. I can see the path ahead of you as well as your barriers and possible routes forward in a way that is hard for you to see from where you are. I aim to help you gain perspective, stop the struggle, and start living a valued-driven life that you’re excited to live. I have over 20 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with a range of concerns. Some of these are family issues/blended family issues, parenting, divorce, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, impulse control, disruptive/oppositional behavior, spirituality and deconstruction. I work primarily from Family Systems Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy perspectives. I earned master’s degrees in Marriage and Family therapy and Community Counseling and am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I am also a Board Approved Clinical Supervisor and am happy to provide supervision to provisionally licensed clinicians.

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.

When life seems overwhelming, and negative thoughts tend to prevail, we sometimes need help navigating through these troubled times. My passion in counseling is to help you overcome obstacles to your peace of mind. I seek to provide a confidential, non-judgmental space for you to work through hardships and distress. I work with adults and adolescents who are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship struggles, eating disorders and grief. It is one of my desires to help people work through past or present trauma. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as well as other trauma focused techniques. I have a bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Missouri State University, and a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Regent University. I am a Licensed Associate Counselor (LAC) and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). I also specialize in Technology Assisted Counseling. It is my hope that all who struggle will find the peace and restoration they desire.

The fact that you are reading these words and considering counseling is commendable, as the counseling process can be difficult and painful. Yet, you are braver than you think you are! I have discovered over my past 14 years of experience in the Mental Health field, that my clients are some of the bravest people I know. Walking alongside them in this unique journey is an honor; to cheer them on, to challenge them, to offer them hope, to console them, and most of all, to see them transform and heal.
I am an LMFT and LPC and I completed my dual masters degree of Marriage and Family therapy and Community Counseling from JBU. I love working with people of all ages and have a wide variety of experience including School-Based Counseling, Social Service work, and Private Practice. I mostly practice from a Solution-Focused model of counseling and incorporate EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) within marital therapy. I am certified in Prepare and Enrich and enjoy doing premarital and marital enrichment.
For a decade of my life, I lived overseas as a missionary in Spain. I understand the unique challenges involved in life overseas and the process of repatriation as a family. Beyond my own personal experiences, I have also counseled many missionary, military, and multicultural families. Of course, another added benefit of having lived in Spain, is that I speak Spanish! I enjoy working with Spanish speaking clients as well as multicultural clients from other countries learning to adapt to a new culture.
Some of my other areas of emphasis include; grief counseling, infertility, marital therapy, family therapy anxiety, depression, and PTSD. I am also Technology-assisted specialized in the State of Arkansas, allowing me to offer online counseling.
