Anna Slatton, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Are you, your child, or your family struggling with anxiety, depression, stress management, or trauma? I have a passion for working with individuals (children and adults), families, and couples. My job is to assist you in helping you look at things differently. Focusing on a shift in perspective allows for needed changes in feelings, thoughts, and behaviors to fall into place. I have been a practicing therapist for 10 years. My aim is to assist individuals, families, and/or couples in creating a better quality of life. So, if a better quality of life is what you are seeking, I want to walk with you on that journey.

I enjoy studying behavior analysis and learning concepts and conditioning. During my collegiate career, I participated in my college's study of Oddity Concepts in Learning. I graduated cum laude with my master's degree in counseling in 2009 from UALR.

Beginning a new mental health journey is not easy, but it is worth the effort. I value the vulnerability that it took to begin this journey. I see you. I hear you. Let's take this journey together. Therapy is not an overnight fix. There is not magic wand. It won't always be easy. But, it will be worth it. Are you ready?

I have worked with an array of different mental health issues especially in regards to trauma and substances abuse. Through working with a criminal population. I have learned the importance of patience especially in challenging sessions and offer unbiased and objective counseling. I’ve set clear and achievable goals and work together, with my clients, to achieve these goals. I possess an understands how the trauma and substance abuse play hand in hand and how to break the cycle. As a retired Army NCO and Purple Heart recipient I understands how trauma can affect an individual. My approach is holistic view of mental health encompassing the body, mind, and emotions. Integrating all aspects of an individual’s cognitions, strengths and weakness. I believe that all the dimensions are interconnected and important to a well-rounded and balanced lifestyle.
