Daryl Mitchell


About Me

Hello and welcome.

Thank you for reading my profile. I begin counseling by listening. Every person is unique and your experiences are different from others. I do not tell people what to do. Instead I will help you explore the possibilities that your problems reveal and guide you to choose the best path for yourself. Experience teaches me that people get stuck
when the story of themselves doesn't match their current reality. The stuckness usually comes from believing that change is too hard or not possible based on past choices.

The truth is we choose our way going forward. There may be obstacles, but giving up on the life we want is deeply dissatisfying. I enjoy joining people to encourage them to be true to themselves. There is only one you. No one can else can be you.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Arkansas and Oklahoma. I have 26 years of experience in helping people choose their life instead of feeling like passengers. I have worked in hospitals, outpatient clinics, elementary and high schools, and am now in private practice for my 16th year. My work is primarily with people experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, traumatic events, family problems, work problems, and relationship problems. I use problem solving, supportive techniques, and
cognitive / behavioral techniques. But mostly I ask my clients to make changes and assess the results with me, then choose what works best.

I have experience in faith based counseling. I have been a member of the North American Association of Christians in Social Work for many years. I have been a Bible teacher of children, teenagers, and adults in Arkansas for over 30 years. I regularly use Christian principles and Bible verses in my practice with both Christians and non Christians . I designed and led a successful Christian principles group at a Christian inpatient unit in Little Rock. I increasingly believe that what people need the most is a dose of faith, hope, and love, the eternal gifts.

You are a courageous person to even consider taking this step. It shows you want to take back the wheel of your life. I would be honored to be chosen to see where
you can go!

I feel blessed to have the opportunity to receive the level of counseling I find in communicating with Daryl Mitchell. It both professional and personal in its quality and content. I would not hesitate to recommend this format, and I would strongly recommend Daryl Mitchell as a counselor. I am able to recognize specific areas of growth in my personal and interpersonal life.

I appreciate Mr. Mitchell’s patience and time that he shows during counseling. He never gets frustrated with me. He listens and understands. He usually tries to balance things out with scripture.

I have only been working with Daryl a few weeks, but I find him to be very kind, knowledgeable, and not afraid to integrate the Scriptures into out sessions, which is very important to me. I would highly recommend him.

Daryl's a great guy. It's early in our work, but I'm confident in his ability to help me.

This is my first time to participate in counseling. Daryl has been wonderful to work with. In a very short time he has guided me to a whole new perspective on my situation. I look forward to continuing this journey.

Darryl is been the only person on the planet to take the amount of time it is taking to keep me from losing hope, which threw a domino effect could’ve cost me everything in this life and the next. Sometimes I just need somebody to continue to be there for me and he has done exactly that.
