Hello, my name is Beverly Knighten, I am a professional counselor currently licensed in Oklahoma with over 12 years of experience working as a LCSW in multiple settings, and states. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, addiction and SMI. Most of my career has been working with the military in various occupations and settings. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is eclectic, compassionate and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, and in a non-judgement approach. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, talk therapy, person-centered and solution focused counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
Additional areas of focus: LGBT, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Coaching

Beverly has been wonderful to work with these past few months. She is such an advocate for believing in and empowering oneself. She is very good at sharing not necessarily what you expect to hear, but what you -need- to hear to reconnect with yourself and make your life more fulfilling.
