Getting to do therapy is a dream I’ve had for many years; I am passionate about seeing people heal and be whole, and I am thankful every day I get this opportunity.  My name is Mary Anne Gunter.  I returned to college as an empty-nester, finishing my B.A. degree from Lyon College, and earning an M.S. degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Harding University, where I was nominated in the top ten percent of Harding to the Alpha Chi National College Honor Society.

I am currently pursuing my doctorate through the University of Louisiana at Monroe.  I am dually-licensed in the state of Arkansas as a Marriage and Family Therapist (LAMFT), and Counselor (LAC).  I was a former psychiatric nurse and a nurse case manager for at-risk children and families.  I have led marriage and parenting groups as well.  I am blessed to be married to my best friend for nearly 28 blended-family years with two adult children between us.  Over the years we’ve adopted six useless basset hounds who tell us how high to jump when they’re not busy snoring.  I enjoy reading, travel, writing, sewing, history, art.  I’ve got a thing for dusty antique shops, and a mean cup of hot tea.  I am honored to be a member of the following organizations – 

American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy

American Association of Christian Counselors

Arkansas Counseling Association, state branch of American Counseling Association 

Arkansas Christian Counselors and Therapists – annual conferences

Alpha Chi National College Honor Society

Greers Ferry Chamber of Commerce

Fairfield Bay Chamber of Commerce
