Whole Health, Counseling & Therapy in NWA
By: Gael Langdon
Northwest Arkansas is leading the state in many ways with its active plans for clean energy, its elevating tech scene, its strong foothold in advanced air mobility, and its mountain biking infrastructure. Among the array of reasons NWA is a great place to be, the region is also making moves to be known for its approach to holistic health.

Already, institutions like the University of Health and Performance, the Children's Safety Center, and the Whole Health Institute create environments where the priority and emphasis are on the health of the whole person. The region's latest endeavor to make NWA an epicenter of holistic health is the Alice L. Walton School of Medicine, which is working to combine conventional medicine with integrative techniques and principles. Emotional and mental health is top of mind right now for many people and is an essential part of the well-rounded nature of a healthy community.

While new initiatives are happening, there are already several organizations in NWA for counseling and therapy of all kinds. One of the hardest things sometimes, we think, is how many options there are. So the team at NWA Daily has done some research to narrow down 13 counseling options in the region to create a resource for your mental and emotional health journey.
