By developing our love for customer service and creating personalized products, we decided to change direction and started building a new business model,” Ali explains on the company’s website.

Counseling BX recently moved from a building on Chestnut and Main streets and is well on its way to seeing clients. Services include crisis, family and child counseling in both individual and group therapy.

Thomas Skinner, who operates the business with his wife, Megan Skinner, said they are completing accreditation, including Medicare accreditation so they can help seniors.

“We see people for general mental health advice, and we have a variety of different licensed counsellors,” he said.

The Skinners hope to have 20 advisers by the end of March once their accreditation is complete. This includes being certified by various insurance companies, which can take some time.

For those who cannot come to the practice, telemedicine offers are available.

“Tele-med allows us to be able to attract people to rural areas without access. Generally, we run our practice by appointment only, but we can make sure a patient gets the help they need. They can call us, and we can have them there immediately.”

Thomas said he does marketing, advertising, hiring, retention. Megan handles billing, accreditation and is a licensed counsellor. Megan earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Arkansas and a master’s degree in mental health counseling from the University of Central Arkansas.

She and a few friends got together to start mental health work, opening Counseling BX in late 2020.

“The circle is pretty small and everyone sort of knows each other,” Thomas said.

The Skinners also plan to open another office in Sherwood to target a few different communities.

“It was an experience. We are literally on fire and we are fine. We have been seeing patients for a few months and have a good program.
