Sylvia L. Flanagan, MA, LMFT
M.A. in Marital & Family Therapy
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist AR M1709030
I'm a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with over 20 years of experience providing services to individuals and couples. You can find answers to most questions through my website but I'm happy to have a free phone consultation and answer additional questions. To make an appointment or view availability please view my online scheduler.
I strive to strike a balance between holding space for clients and offering feedback and suggestions. I hold back from being too directive but also know clients want more than empathy and validation. I aim to challenge but also work hard for clients to feel comfortable and understood. A client’s voice is important, and I find the best results come about when there’s collaboration.
I offer individual, couples and premarital counseling. I am experienced working with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, codependency, spiritual issues, communication, substance abuse, anger management and life transitions. I work with each client differently because each person is different, and I don’t have the same technique for similar struggles. I enjoy my work and put effort into making therapy a rewarding experience for each and every client.
Your Greatest Self.
Effective individual counseling touches all areas of life. It affords an individual to explore their insecurities, strengths, limitations, unhealth patterns of thought and behavior and the space to reflect on where they want to take their life in order to maximize meaning and purpose. Learn More.
Whether your dating, married or engaged, couples counseling focuses on improving communication, decreasing conflict and exploring values. It offers couples a safe space to discuss problems, needs and dreams with a therapist who introduces tools, highlights unhealthy patterns and supports the couple to build upon strengths. Learn More.
Driving to an office can be undesirable due to time constraints or weather. Online counseling is now customary due to its effectiveness and convenience post-pandemic. I offer both video and phone therapy at an affordable rate and my platform is HIPAA secure and simple to use. Learn More.
