About the Directory
Northwest Arkansas Equality is committed to identifying resources, organizations, and local businesses that work to support the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community. Community Connections is our living directory containing a list of our program and business partners, and sponsors, organizations, and other resources focused on providing support. These resources are vetted both in-house and by trusted organizations and partners.
Program partners and nonprofits should contact us for listing information. Businesses supporting the LGBTQ community can self-register by clicking the Create Listing button. Annual membership is $25.00, which helps support the efforts to maintain the directory and our advocacy and outreach work.

Hi all. I'm a local Licensed Clinical Social Worker providing mental health services at The People Place in Bentonville, AR.
I am committed to building therapeutic relationships where individuals feel seen, heard, accepted and supported. I consider myself to be an affirming therapist with an open and relaxed style that my clients tell me helps to feel at ease right away. I believe therapy is an invaluable space where you can begin to explore all the parts of yourself and begin to heal and flourish. As a proud member of the LGBTQIA+ Community, I have found a deep passion and empowerment in working with those alike. I specialize in treating teens and adults with anxiety, grief, mood disorders, self harming behaviors and trauma.
I use a strengths-based and trauma-informed approach to meet individual needs which may include: improving relationships, healing from traumatic experiences, processing significant life changes, or managing feelings of anxiety. I am certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and TF-CBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).
I cherish the connections built in the therapeutic space, and would be honored to walk a part of this journey with you. Our work together will be filled with compassion, understanding, and curiosity. Therapy can be challenging - it’s not easy to share about the hard stuff in our lives - but I’m right there with you every step of the way.

I am a licensed mental health counselor providing telehealth services to NW Arkansas. I am a member of the LGBTQIA2s+ community and know how hard it can be to deal with not only our own personal struggles, but also the inequities and social stresses we face on a daily basis. I seek to provide a supportive and validating environment, and incorporate a holistic approach that is rooted in scientific evidence. I do not accept insurance, but I use a sliding scale based on client resources.

No matter how offbeat or eccentric, your wedding should reflect your personality and values. I help couples create weddings and events that mirror their backgrounds, styles, and interests. I love to see couples break traditions and create new ones. Whether it’s alternative fashion or design, a non-traditional ceremony, the blending of cultures, or a unique celebration, Stardust Weddings & Events is ready to guide you through the making of a life experience.
I started this business not only because I’m obsessed with all things weddings and parties, but also because I saw a gap in wedding services in Northwest Arkansas. I noticed that it was hard to tell which planners and vendors are LGBTQ+ accepting and gender affirming, and I wanted to create a place where couples could come to me and know I was accepting of them. While I specialize in LGBTQ+ weddings, I love working with EVERYONE. The relationships I build with the couples I work with is my favorite part of this job.
