I want to help you to process the things that have brought you in.

Jason LeCompte MAMFT, LPC
Individual and Relationship Counseling, Gender Identity Counseling
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 best of all, I get to help others in this work, something that is truly satisfying. When I get to help someone heal from past hurts, help them grow, to love more deeply, or to live more happily, it is fulfilling in a way nothing else is. And when someone loves their work as much as I do, you can feel the difference in the relationship you develop with them.
I hold a Master's of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Adler University in Chicago, IL, and I am a licensed professional counselor in the State of Arkansas. I enjoy working with youth and young adults, but enjoy working with people of all ages. My areas of focus include relationships (including marriages and other partnerships) managing work/life stress, teen and adolescent issues, and anything LGBTQ related, including Trans* issues.
I moved to NWA after living in Illinois all of my life, and being a part of a private practice collective like this one 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. Just click below.

I’m passionate about people and creativity, 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.

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.
