Jason LeCompte MAMFT, LPC
Being a therapist satisfies many of the roles I enjoy in my life: the problem-solver, the nurturer, the artist, the educator - just to name a few. But most of all, I get to be a helper in this work. For me, there is nothing more gratifying than helping someone heal from past hurts, helping them to grow, to learn to love more deeply, or to live more happily. And when someone loves their work as much as I do, you can feel the difference in the work they do.
I hold a Master's of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, and I am a licensed professional counselor in the State of Arkansas. I enjoy working with youth and young adults, but continue to work with people of all ages. My areas of focus are working with relationships, teen/adolescent issues, and anything LGBTQ related, including Trans* issues.
I moved to NWA after living in Illinois all of my life, and opening a private practice has been a dream of mine since I began graduate school. Whether you've never done therapy before, have had some experience, or are an old pro just looking for a new therapist, I would be happy to help.
Whitney Nellore, LPC
I’m passionate about people and art, because, I get to help individuals to figure out what causes problems in life, build creativity, find meaning, and feel more connected. My wholehearted belief is that finding life after past or current traumas takes exploration and strength. We will work together to help you find calmness and freedom from disturbance. Sometimes strength is just having someone to talk to
I graduated from University of Arkansas with a Masters in Mental Health Counseling and have earlier training in Creative Arts. My expertise is with adolescents and adults who have experienced trauma, relationship issues, or sexual issues, as well as, other issues including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, attachment and family issues. I have five years of experience working with individuals that have experienced traumatic, scary, or upsetting life events to find who they are before and after trauma, and finding freedom from disturbance. My previous experience is at Piney Ridge Treatment Center providing individual, family and group counseling for trauma and other relational issues resulting in sexual behavior problems.
I also have specialized clinical training for treating trauma using a scientifically proven treatment known as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and can provide counseling with phone call or video chat.
