About me

Hello . My name is Deborah Bledsoe and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a specialty in Drug and Alcohol and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I graduated from the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, Arkansas in 1999. I have gone on to further my education and knowledge with Rehabilitation Counseling at University of Arkansas Little Rock and I am also a certified tobacco interventionist.
I work with individuals and families with a wide range of concerns, including mood disorders, depression, substance abuse, trauma-informed care, family relations problems, communication, anger management, life changes and compassion fatigue. I come from an eclectic approach to counseling, but by the client’s presenting concerns, motivation and goals, the therapies that could be used are client centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, narrative therapy psychodynamic therapy, solution focused therapy and trauma-informed care. I am a counselor of color, with over twenty years in counseling, substance abuse and mental health. I would be a good match for someone seeking an older and mature counselor.
Life as we have once known has dramatically changed, which has brought struggles and overwhelming challenges to face daily. I would like to help you provide solutions to these challenges that you face. I would like to help you create an effective and positive stream of communication. In long lasting relationships communication is essential. If you make the first step to seek help, I will walk with you. If you are willing to put the work in you will see a much healthier you.
I look forward to being a part of your journey to a fulfilled life.

We’ve only met with Deborah once but connected with her right away. She gave great explanations and by the end of the session we knew she could help us walk through some difficult times. Can’t wait to see her again this week.

Mrs. Bledsoe was personable while also addressing specific issues in a professional manner. Her initial assessment of our needs as newlyweds were very helpful.

Deborah is one of the best counselors that my wife and I encountered during our time on regain. Throughout our experience Deborah always had our best interests at heart. My wife and I are very sad to see her leave and wish her the best in health and in her endeavors!
