Meredith Kimbrough LPC: Empowering Individuals and Couples to Find a New Way Forward. If you feel like something isn’t right and you are considering therapy - welcome! The toughest part is realizing that something really can change, and that you might need a little help to get where you want to be. The truth is, we all need a little help to get where we want to be. Here’s what I’m offering: A relationship that does not require you to be less than what you are, a space that is safe and accepting of every part of you (yes, even that part), time to ask the big questions that will lead you back to yourself, and new strategies that can carry you forward into a more energetic and fulfilling life.
I earned my Bachelors in Psychology from Texas State University and my Masters in Counseling from the University of Arkansas. I am licensed by the Arkansas Board of Examiners in Counseling and Marriage and Family Counseling. I approach each client with openness, acceptance, empathy, curiosity, and love. My therapeutic style is relational and attachment-based, which means the primary tool in our work together will be a reliable and safe relationship between the two of us where you can begin to share your story and have it received with compassion. I believe that a lot of suffering stems from the ways in which we deny ourselves the ability to be who we truly are. Many of us have had to hide away parts of ourselves in an attempt to stay emotionally or physically safe in childhood, and the consequences are suffering and symptoms. In our work together, we will spend time getting to know you. We will explore the barriers to your full expression and we will confront them together so that you can move forward with energy, confidence, and strength. If you’re ready to get started, Meredith Kimbrough MS, LPC 31 E Center Street Fayetteville, AR 72701

Kayley Walker LCSW: Since childhood, my curiosity has driven me to delve deeply into a diverse range of eastern and western philosophies. As a result, I have developed an extensive scope to deliver a holistic approach to work with my clients. I am dedicated to my personal journey of individuation; I bring the same commitment to my clients. I find great enthusiasm in working with individuals who perceive a deeper layer beyond their symptoms.
I completed my Social Work training at the University of Denver's Graduate School of Social Work in 2016, where I specialized in Health and Wellness. Over the past decade, my experiences have included working with children and teens, medical social work, and supporting adult individuals in their personal development journey. Through these experiences, I have developed a comprehensive knowledge of the mind-body connection and how it can impact an individual's physical, emotional, and social well-being, as well as that of the community. In my practice, I incorporate evidence-based practices, and depth psychology, which assist people in gently reworking their limiting beliefs. Additionally, I integrate mindfulness and body awareness techniques to help people attune to their inner landscape, fostering freedom, greater self-compassion and kindness.
As a trained social worker and a systemic thinker, I perceive that making progress in one aspect of an individual's life can have a ripple effect on other areas of their lives as well as society as a whole. In my view, it is essential to recognize the influence of power, privilege, and oppression and to confront them in order to heal personal and collective trauma. I am LGBTQ + and Neurodivergent Affirming.
Outside of my professional life, I relish extended walks in natural settings and feel a strong bond with all the diverse elements found in nature - I find myself captivated and at ease immersing myself in the environment. Qigong is an essential aspect of my life. Additionally, I savor immersing myself in a well-written book or movie, indulge in the creative process of writing poetry or painting, simply for the sheer fun and enjoyment of it. In the event that I were to be stranded on a deserted island alone and could select only one book, it would undoubtedly be Women Who Run With the Wolves by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes.
Ultimately, I am enthusiastic about and dedicated to exploring topics relating to the human spirit and what drives us forward, especially the work of Dr. Carl G. Jung. One of the quotes that served as inspiration for my practice's name Rekindle is by Dr. Carl Jung: “As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” https://www.kayleywalkerlcsw.com email@example.com
DeAnna Dunn LPC: I help clients find a greater sense of themselves by helping them to become more aware of their own human nature. I aim to empower clients to become clear about their goals and how to achieve them. Clients can hope to gain greater understanding and respect for their own inner ability to find resolution. In counseling, people feel supported while working through real and perceived barriers at their own pace. I believe each of us has the wisdom we seek within ourselves; the key is to access that wisdom and to believe in it.
I am a licensed counselor with over 20 years of experience providing therapeutic services to people of all ages. I have helped people with emotional, behavioral, social, relational, academic, and lifestyle challenges in a variety of settings as a recreational therapist, academic therapist, special educator, & school counselor. I am LGBTQ+ accepting.
Taking that first step towards getting support can be overwhelming, especially when you are in the midst of the struggle; even though it can be difficult at times, counseling is a step towards healing and growth. "Your heart knows the way; Run in that direction." Rumi

Leah Evans, Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP): I have a passion for preventative mental health care. In my approach to helping clients navigate their mental well-being, I draw upon my natural empathy and compassion when working with therapists to assist their clients. My role is to design chemical and/or pharmacological corrections that can assist and expedite the work done in counseling sessions. My philosophy is that, when medication is necessary, the smallest dose for the shortest amount of time is often the best option. I see each client as a unique individual, and therefore I give specialized input for each person’s specific needs. This may even include no medication management. I see mental health as similar to dental health: just as we are taught dental hygiene from a young age, children should be taught mental hygiene. This could include annual check-ins with a psychiatric practitioner, or regular sessions with a trusted counselor or therapist if necessary.
A holistic approach aims to empower each individual to take charge of their mental well-being. In addition to my clinical practice, my passion for all things mental health–related has led me to embark on an academic path. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Nursing Science and am committed to advancing my knowledge and contributing to the body of research in the psychiatric realm. My research goals are to discover more effective interventions and treatments. Through my work, I hope to de-stigmatize conversations around mental health and create a safe space for these critical conversations to flourish.
When I am not at work or studying, I enjoy taking care of myself through regular physical activities (such as running and yoga), reading, traveling, and mindfulness activities such as meditation. I also enjoy spending time with my four daughters. These activities provide me a balanced perspective and inspire me, both in my clinical practice and in my academic work.
I am committed to enhancing, understanding, and advocating for mental health care for all.
