Great to meet you!

I'm Arkila J. Covington, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) dedicated to helping individuals, couples, and groups grow personally and emotionally. With dual master's degrees in Sociology/Criminal Justice and Counseling Psychology, I've been fortunate to guide countless clients on their journeys, overcoming obstacles, achieving goals, and adopting adaptive behavior modifications that improve their personal and professional lives.

A bit about my approach to therapy

My strengths lie in developing emotional intelligence and anger management skills. We'll explore new techniques through assignments, role-play, and experimental therapy.

What you can expect from our first session

We'll embark on a comprehensive exploration of your therapeutic needs and expectations. I'll share details about my professional experience and therapeutic approach, ensuring that you have a clear understanding of how we can work together. We'll also discuss the importance of confidentiality and the unique aspects of virtual therapy, acknowledging any concerns or questions you may have. This first meeting is crucial in establishing a strong sense of trust and open dialogue, which I truly value.
