Meet Your Team

Meet Stan Gray, LCSW

My path to becoming a therapist was more of a calling than a career decision. I’m not particularly suited to this profession. I’m introverted, which causes me to present as somewhat unfriendly and aloof to strangers.

Small talk, or what I consider the superficialities of life, is not my forte. But when it comes to exploring the deepest, most painful, and challenging core aspects of your life, that’s the space where I feel most comfortable.

The foundation of my practice is my journey in 12-step recovery. I would say I was “chosen” for the gift of healing from a self-destructive lifestyle over 30 years ago.

During graduate school, I received an introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a scientific, research-based model that is perfectly suited to my spiritual beliefs and values.

Most recently, in 2019, I received Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) training, an incredible tool for processing traumatic memory and ending core negative beliefs.

I learn from every client. Sometimes, the outcome is on the plane of miraculous healing; sometimes more like a battlefield encounter. If you decide to work with me, it will be an amazing journey of healing, self-discovery, and personal growth. I look forward to leading you.

After graduating from the University of Tennessee in 2003 with a master’s degree in clinical social work, my career in psychotherapy began. Before that, I worked for 15 years as a journalist.

Meet Carissa Edgar, LCSW

My passion is helping children and families work through problems and issues that disrupt positive relationships.

I specialize in working with children who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, behavioral issues in various environments, family dynamics, anger, relationship concerns, school/work stressors, trauma issues, and unhealthy communication patterns.

I particularly enjoy helping foster/adoptive families find peace and cohesion in their new family situation. I also love helping children with severe emotional or behavioral issues.

My approach is to provide a caring, nonjudgmental approach. Lucy, my beautiful goldendoodle therapy dog, is my trusted partner in therapy.

You can change your life, and I can help. Please reach out and contact me for a free consultation. If I don’t answer, please leave a voicemail at (870) 897-3042.

Meet Michelle Hix, LCSW

Everyone has a story to share about their life – a story of love, joy, hope, struggle, pain, and despair. Deciding to seek help is the courageous first step toward regaining control, obtaining wellness, and achieving recovery.

I have more than 20 years of experience listening to life stories, offering understanding and support, finding solutions.

In 1995, I graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with a Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work. Since 2004, I have been working in direct practice with clients in Jonesboro.

My cell number is (870) 219-9822. Feel free to text or call. Please leave a voicemail if I don’t answer.

Meet Erin Snodgrass, LCSW, LADAC

You can improve your life. I have more than 19 years of experience helping clients discover and follow their pathway for healing, growth, and fulfillment. I am gifted with a nonjudgmental perspective of my clients and will develop a compassionate and caring relationship with you.

My experience is as both a psychotherapist and substance abuse specialist. My clients range from children to seniors who present various issues and diagnoses, including mood disorders, anxiety, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, grief, life transitions, relationship issues, self-esteem, and substance abuse and addiction.

My approach uses a variety of therapy modalities, depending on the client’s personality and life perspective. I use a humanistic approach to therapy, utilizing existential and mindfulness techniques, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and person-centered therapy.

In 2002, I received my Master’s degree in Social Work from Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas, and obtained the Licensed Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor (LADAC) certification in Arkansas.

Together, we can create meaningful, positive changes in your life. Please reach out for a consultation call, (870) 351-9860.

Meet Lisa Bowen, LPC

I provide a safe, welcoming environment where you can be open, be your honest self, and make progress toward your goals. I tailor my approach to therapy to suit your unique personality and needs.

Since 2001, I have been working with adolescents and adults engaging in the process of real, substantial life change. My style of therapy is “laid back,” allowing our relationship to develop and evolve. Interwoven in our sessions will be various interventions and approaches, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, rational emotive therapy, and a person-centered approach.

I believe that each person has a perspective of the world unique to them. An open-minded approach to therapy allows us to develop achievable goals specific to you and your life circumstances.

In 1999, I earned a Master’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from Arkansas State University, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Arkansas.

You are welcome to contact me at (870) 761-1121 to schedule a free consultation.
