WELCOME TO FAYETTEVILLE, U of A STUDENTS!

Our providers love working with college students!  The college years are an exciting time in the lives of young people; however, they can also create some unique challenges.  Learning to study, meeting new friends, living with roommates, dating, choosing a career path and navigating new found independence are just some of the struggles young people face during these formative years.  These stressors can lead to a variety of mental health conditions that can be very serious if left untreated.  Depression, anxiety, substance abuse, eating disorders, and ADHD are some of the many disorders prevalent in this population.  

Don’t struggle alone!  We can help.  

Dr. Nicholas completed a child and adolescent fellowship and has experience treating substance use disorders.  Dr. Stacey once led an inpatient team in a busy University setting and has extensive expertise in treating ADHD in a variety of age groups.   Our experienced therapist, Amber Hooper, LPC has spent much of her career treating young adult populations, many of whom were adjusting to the stresses of new circumstances or group living environments. 

Our office is conveniently located within walking distance from campus, on College Avenue just past Dickson Street, in the heart of downtown Fayetteville.
