    About Arkila Covington

    I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am licensed to practice in California, Missouri and Texas. I have worked as a psychocounselor, behavior modification specialist, nutritionist and life coach. First and foremost, I believe that the Word of God is the ultimate authority. In my work as a Christian and counselor it is of the utmost importance to view each individual with love, kindness and patience. I have worked with children, adolescents and adults with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, substance use, out of home placement, LGBT-related issues, bullying and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma and emotional abuse.

    My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and narrative therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

    It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

    I look forward to working with you!
