    Recommendations from Professional Colleagues

    “Helen Jennings-Hood is a culturally competent, skilled counselor. She implements appropriate yet effective interventions to ensure that the client can develop a stronger sense of self. She received her Master’s degree from a CACREP accredited program and practices within her scope of practice.

    Helen is an avid advocate for individuals from all walks of life. Additionally, she is a member of different professional counseling organizations and stays up to date on useful interventions by attending counseling conferences. I highly recommend Mrs. Jennings-Hood to anyone seeking a therapist who genuinely cares about your mental health and will help you make the change you want to see within yourself. “

    “Licensed Professional Counselor, Helen Jennings-Hood is one of many great counselors here in the state of Arkansas. Her work ethic is incredible and she goes above and beyond for her family, friends, colleagues, and clients. Helen is a competent and ethical counselor who possesses a strong need in helping others prosper in life by daring to be their best selves. She is a strong ally in the melanin community and competent in multicultural counseling, Helen is sweet, caring, and understanding of people’s needs without the judgement. She is just the counselor the world needs as we go through these difficult times.”

    - Kiara D. Griffin, Ed.S., LAC

    “I have known Helen for the last few years from her time in graduate school while I was taking a supervisor class. We were paired together and since then we have continued a collegial relationship and friendship. Through our time of knowing each other, I have come to value her depth of understanding; hunger to grow, learn, and serve people; and her ability to rapidly attune to others whom she works with. I also deeply admire her commitment to advocacy, especially down-trodden and minority peoples. Her wisdom, compassion, and authenticity have made her a valuable colleague, as well as an endearing friend. I would recommend Helen without reservation.”

    - Eric Busby, LPC

    “Helen is a personal friend of mine and a colleague. From our first meeting, I have been in awe of her ability to be aware of current counseling affairs, express her views and concerns about social inequalities and justice inequalities, and stay organized on the job and at home. She is competent, extremely empathetic, and empowers her clients by collaborating with them to set personal expectations of their counseling experience. I would recommend her to members of my family and friends as best of the best.”
