Summer Turman, Intern

(Statewide Telehealth)

I have earned my Associates in Liberal Arts, Bachelors in Psychology, and I am currently enrolled in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Masters Program while earning my Play Therapy Certificate at Arkansas State University. I completed my Practicum and Play Practicum at Families Inc. For my Internship placement, I have decided to dive into the Private Practice world. I will now be at Chenal Family Therapy, PLC, and The Art of Healing. I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, and families of all ages and backgrounds. When working with children and or young adolescents I use Play Therapy and Expressive Arts modalities while using a Child-Centered approach. I also have experience with Sandtray, working with individuals on the Autism spectrum, children in Foster Care, physical/sexual abuse, Conduct Disorder, and more. With adolescent and adult clients, I implement holistic perspectives while using Gestalt and Existential practices/techniques. Overall I seek to help people develop a greater understanding of who they are to increase their self-awareness and connection with one’s self through mind, body, and spirit in order to create balance and harmony. My future goals include opening a holistic-based private practice while incorporating Play Therapy/Expressive Arts, Yoga Therapy, and Dance Therapy. If interested in working with me for Play Therapy and or Expressive Arts Therapy at Chenal Family Therapy, PLC, email or call 870.340.2636 to schedule an appointment!
