Welcome! My name is Anita Martin, MA, LPC-S, RPT-S. I have a Master of Arts in Counseling and a Master of Arts in Human Resources Development both from Webster University in St. Louis, MO and a Bachelor of Science in Sociology from the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, AR. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Arkansas. As a licensed therapist, I have over ten years of experience working with children and adults suffering from behavioral issues, oppositional behavior, ADHD symptoms, anxiety, depression and relationship conflict.

In addition, I have worked in a wide variety of settings, including my current private practice, where I have developed my eclectic philosophy in working with clients. Using a combination of play therapy, EMDR, and sand tray and solution focused therapies, I empower clients so they achieve their goals in their counseling journey. I strongly believe that having balance in mind, body and soul is key to healthy living.

My goal is to help you find happiness, reach your potential, and create a bright future. I look forward to working with you to create the life and relationships you’re longing for. I am EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) trained. This training has been effective in treating trauma, anxiety, and depression. As a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor (RPT-S), I am able to assist your child to work through their struggles.

I am now offering online counseling for those that qualify. To schedule an appointment, please email me at info@martincounselingservices.com or I can be contacted at 501-246-7121. Weekend and evening appointments are available in our Conway or Little Rock, AR offices.
