Sophie Myers, LCSW
Therapist
IMG_8480.jpg

I received my bachelor’s degree from Harding University in 2013. I took several years off to travel and immerse myself in other cultures around the world. I spent time in Wuhan, China doing mission work while working as an English teacher. After prayerful consideration, I entered the field of social work and earned my master’s degree from UA Little Rock in 2017. I have experience with teenagers in acute placements, school-based and outpatient settings.  I have experience working with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, relationship difficulties and communication challenges. I enjoy helping teenagers and young adults navigate their way through transitional periods, using a strengths-based perspective to help clients use the tools they already have to improve their lives.

 

I think laying the foundation of a healthy therapeutic relationship is key for success in the counseling process. I desire to create a calming, safe, nonjudgmental place for clients to feel completely at ease voicing whatever thoughts, feelings, and behaviors they may be struggling with. I recognize the honor it is for a client to share their story with me through the counseling process. I also encourage clients to be forthcoming in their concerns or specific needs if they feel as though we are not moving in the right direction.
