About me

I am licensed in Arkansas with 30 years of professional work experience. I have spent most of my career in university counseling centers, but for the last few years have added providing consultation and therapy to nursing staff at a local hospital, providing therapy to hospital staff through their EAP, and most recently through Better Help.

I especially help clients with depression and anxiety (from irrational beliefs and over-thinking), relationship issues, coping with grief and loss, religious conflict, nightmares and dream interpretation, anger management, & low self-esteem.

I believe that the best therapy comes from collaborating together, where I listen and give feedback, and where I provide a place where people can feel safe and be absolutely honest.

I am personable, very chill, and do not push people. I have a high rate of success and I love what I do.

I check messages throughout the day, so I am particularly good at getting back to people in a very short amount of time.

Reach out to me and I we’ll take a first step and see how it goes.

Dr. Guinee is compassionate and genuinely cares about helping me become my best self. I've never experienced therapy that has helped with my schedule of having such a busy life. I am a wife, mom, dog mom, and I have an amazing career as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Words cannot express how thankful I am for Dr. G and how far I have come within my short time of working with him. Thank you, Dr. G! You are truly making a difference in my journey called life!

Highly recommend. He listens and he asks questions to get you to open up more in detail. I don’t feel judged and that always makes a huge difference!

Dr. Guinee was extremely kind and supportive throughout our sessions. This was my first time through the terapy process, and his welcoming and humble attitude was by itself most suiting for healing and warm conversations throughout.
