    I'm Helen, it's so nice to meet you!

    When I’m not seeing my people in my practice, I love to be outside in the sun. Reading and growing new ideas are my favorite things to do and I can do both of these things outside, so it’s a win-win! 

    I’m super curious, so constantly trying new things is a big part of my life. I’m a mother to some really great kids, a partner to my amazing husband, an artist, a writer, and a really awkward conversationalist sometimes. 

    I have a weird and corny sense of humor and I love spending time with friends, and family, and having new adventures. 

    In My Practice

    I love working with people who feel like they don’t quite fit in. I love helping people connect with the important people in their lives and I adore unique personalities. 

    I like to think of therapy as deep and exciting conversations about all that is weighing on your mind. You have so much to share and I cannot wait to hear about it!

    My Mission

    The Daring Space strives to provide a safe & daring therapeutic space for unique individuals to go on their journey of becoming their best selves & living their best lives despite their struggles.

    I am in the business of supporting unique individuals who know that life is supposed to be better than what they have going on right now. People who feel like something is holding them back but they aren’t sure what it is. Often, I work with people who have gone as far as they can on their own and they just need support to continue moving forward. Many people see great things happening around them but they can’t find their own joy in their lives or they can’t stop stressing long enough to enjoy it. I can help you with all of those things. Daring to be your best self may look different to each client, my job is to help you find out what you need and make it work for you!

    Are you ready to take the first step?

    My Qualifications & Credentials

    My education and training have been extensive and eclectic. Some of the things that I utilize daily in my work are:

    • Extensive Training & Education in LGBTQIA+ Therapy
    • Multicultural Counseling & Diversity Training
    • A Certification in Positive Psychology

    In my own personal journey toward my best self, I have had many supporters along the way and I know what an amazing difference it can make. The journey wasn’t always easy or fun, but it was well worth it. I like to think that I have been thriving ever since and I’d like to pass that blessing on to others. In this new journey as a therapist,

    I am devoted to working with diverse populations, advocating for those who need it, and above all being a supportive person for my clients. Therapy and counseling is not just a job for me, it is definitely where my heart is. I can’t imagine doing anything else.

    I didn’t start out as a therapist. I began my college career as a philosopher and I have an undergraduate degree in that field. Philosophy taught me critical thinking skills, deductive reasoning, looking at the big picture, and seeing issues from many different perspectives. Towards the end of my undergraduate degree, I realized that I wanted to more specifically work with people. Listening, talking, and supporting people has always been part of who I am and I love to help people feel good. I had a growing passion for helping people be what I now think of as their best selves. So I went into the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Arkansas State University and learned the art of therapy.

    I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Arkansas.
