Karen.jpg

Being born and raised in Paragould, I grew up with a strong sense of community and always knew helping people would be my passion. My husband of 21 years and I have 2 wonderful children and our clinic’s therapy dog, Millie. We love to travel, especially to Lake Norfork as Mountain Home has a special place in our hearts. I received a Bachelors in Science from Arkansas State University and a Master’s in Social Work from UALR. I have worked in the mental health industry since the age of 18. For me, establishing Hall & Associates Counseling is a way to give back to the communities we live in by providing individualized, confidential care that help clients meet their mental health wellness. We have staff to meet your needs, whether it’s individual, family or couples counseling, medication management or a combination of both. At Hall & Associates Counseling, we also love to collaborate with your Family Physician to help you meet your needs best. “Providing Help, Creating Hope” is what we do!
