Independent Mental Health Providers in Northwest Arkansas

Promoting and cultivating a stronger self – emotionally, mentally, physically, interpersonally, psychologically, physiologically, spiritually.

About Us

The name Bridges to Wellbeing, LLC was inspired by our address on West Sunbridge Drive and the idea of crossing, transitioning from where one is to where one wants to be. You will notice that we have selected bridges as a theme in our artwork as well. We appreciate Wellbeing to be a comprehensive concept, not just limited to the reduction of the symptoms of a mental illness but also promoting and cultivating a stronger self.

Our Facility

Bridges to Wellbeing, LLC, is an office which brings together INDEPENDENT mental health providers. We share an office address, a phone number and an office manager. Beyond that, each provider has her own set of talents, gifts, skills, practice approaches, and professional interests. Each provider has her own schedule and availability, insurance panel participation and fee scales.

Our Providers

One writer suggests that the purpose of life is to work and to love. Starting with this understanding, intervention to support mental health would be indicated when a person is having difficulties in performing work that is satisfying and commensurate with their abilities. Or also when a person is having challenges maintaining relationships that are stable and satisfying. Once a person acknowledges these problems and seeks help, they could consider a range of options. A psychotherapist or counselor, such as Ms Cheryl Williams, LPC, could help an individual learn about themselves and gather tools and understanding to improve the situation or even resolve it. Sometimes psychiatric medications might be needed to help manage and support the person. A person could speak with their primary medical provider for assistance and guidance. If the situation seemed more complicated or more complex, the individual might seek help from someone specifically trained in psychiatric treatment – this is where Dayna Hughes, MD or Kathleen M. Wong, MD could be resources for care. As mentioned above, the aim is to serve as a bridge from one place to another position, where the person would be feeling better.
