I am a female Licensed Certified Social Worker in Arkansas with 44 years of experience. I am also a Reiki healer. I have had many years of experience and training in hypnotherapy and combine the hypnotic trance with healing techniques when requested. I work with clients to transform obstacles into resources and become the best version of themselves--one that goes beyond what their conscious mind thought was possible. Approaches I love are Mindfulness, Creative Change, and Wellness, and Healing. I tailor the model of treatment to the client rather than the client to the model of treatment
I loved my work so much that I made many lateral moves, wanting to know as much about each area of therapy as possible. I stayed at a job for an average of two years before moving to another job to explore another area. For example, if I were were working with children, I would move to a job working with domestic violence, then addictions, then psychiatric disorders, etc. As a result, I have become a very competent generalist in all areas of therapy. I work with clients as a working team in a warm, interactive way.
I have also worked extensively with active duty military service members and their families. I was a Military and Family Life Consultant, working with active duty military and their families on military bases for 10 years. I continue to love working with our military population.
I have great respect for people who seek help for obstacles that are troublesome in their lives and work hard with them to achieve their goals. I have worked on my own issues in therapy to insure that my clients get excellent help from an emotionally healthy person.
I would love to support you in your life journey.

Each person you come across has something to share, teach you and possibly something that you can learn from. Eileen has wisdom, patience, and compassion as well as an understanding of humans that can provide a safe place to open up and share if you are willing. Sometimes we just need a wider perspective so that we can see that past our pain and troubles, that there is a path in which we can return.., to the person we once were.

I have had two sessions with Eileen and I so far have loved meeting with her. She’s very knowledgeable in different therapy types. She listens, she is good at getting to the root of problems and I trust her advice and feedback on my issues/problems in life.

Eileen has been so good for me. I never thought that I could ever feel good again, but she has helped me get there. I highly recommend therapy and seeing her!

I've been in therapy on and off for well over a decade. I've had multiple therapists over the years and Eileen has been phenomenal to work with in terms of her ability to connect with me (and I'm sure other patients). I truly feel like she cares about ME and her patients and even our family members since they play a big role in our lives as well. I think any patient who sees Eileen would gain so much from her care, knowledge, and expertise. I intend to see her for many years to come.

EILEEN is kind and very empathetic to all my needs. She does not sugar coat difficult topics and uses everything in her arsenal to equip myself with the tools during sessions and beyond! She is wonderful and I would recommend her to anyone who needs a kind, sensitive, empathic person to help guide one through the healing process!
