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?

Arthur Stokenbury, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Arthur Stokenbury is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Licensed Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselor (LADAC) with 12 years of experience working with adults and adolescents. Most of Arthur's work has been in criminal rehabilitation and substance abuse. He has worked with an array of different mental health issues especially in regards to trauma and substance abuse. Through working with a criminal population, Arthur has learned the importance of patience, especially in challenging sessions. He offers unbiased and objective counseling. Arthur sets clear and achievable goals and works together, with his clients, to achieve these goals. He understands how trauma and substance abuse play hand in hand and how to break the cycle.

Arthur completed his master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Southern Arkansas University. He became a therapist because he enjoys helping others work past their life’s challenges and improve their quality of life. Arthur feels that he can help people make more sound, rationally-based decisions versus emotionally-based decisions. He enjoys being a counselor and feels a sense of purpose in his work. As a retired Army NCO and Purple Heart recipient, Arthur understands how trauma can affect an individual.

Arthur's approach is a holistic view of mental health encompassing the body, mind, and emotions--integrating all aspects of an individual’s cognitions, strengths, and weakness. He believes that all the dimensions are interconnected and important to a well-rounded and balanced lifestyle. Arthur incorporates elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and solution-focused therapy into his practice. He believes that he can help facilitate the process of positive life changes and growth. Arthur enjoys helping people find their path on life’s journey, working through obstacles along the way.

Martha McCool
Self Pay Rate: $199: Intake $149: Follow-ups

Martha McCool, PMHNP

Philosophy of Care

Ms. Martha McCool is a board certified Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. She began her healthcare career as a Medical/Surgical nurse. She went onto work as a nurse at a primary care clinic for low-income patients. She saw firsthand how mental health issues were often not addressed within acute and primary care settings.

This led her to pursue an MSN degree specializing in Psychiatric/Mental Health at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Ms. McCool worked as a Psychiatric nurse at the largest in-patient psychiatric hospital in the Mid-South while obtaining her MSN. Her experience in treating mental illness in the acute care setting made her recognize the importance of mental health prevention and out-patient care management. She has experience working in community mental health, treating a variety of mental illness (ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar, PTSD) across the lifespan.

Ms. McCool is dedicated to increasing public knowledge about mental illness and expanding access to mental healthcare. She understands that most people experience barriers to mental healthcare and wants to dispel the stigma attached to seeking care.
