Dr. Tom MacMahon brings you all the skills of his profession to help you sort through your relationship and family issues to restore the love and harmony, and to give you a lasting, happy marriage and peaceful home. He also is skilled in helping you with depression, job situations, adult ADD, anger management, conflicts, and other life issues. While pastors, lay helpers, and marriage mentors can be wonderful facilitators with compassion, life experience, and testimonies, sometimes you need a trained professional who is equipped with knowledge, skills, and experience for more complex dynamics and deeper needs, or who is not part of your church family for confidential reasons.
Dr.Tom meets with clients at his convenient office at Fort Smith, Arkansas, Central Mall Tuesday-Friday, afternoons and evenings, and at his Willowbrook Retreat Center in Mena, AR, on most Mondays.. He is also certified to do "Distance Counseling" by phone or by email.

||$75 to $95 per 50 minute office, phone or Skype session, on a sliding rate scale according to income. Payment plans available with payment tailored to your budget. Email counseling is available as a 20-email with personal replies from Dr.Tom package, good for 3 months. To sign up for the email package, email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for details.
|Insurance and Billing Instructions:
||We will provide notated invoices for your submission to your own insurance company, for your reimbursement. We do not file insurance. However, even if your insurance doesn't cover it, the total for about 12 weeks of therapy often costs less than what you would pay to have a broken tooth fixed at your dentist. In that perspective, your peace of mind and happiness are certainly as important to you as a tooth repair, so don't let lack of insurance stop you from getting the help you need. Dr. Tom can help you get set up with an interest-free payment plan. You can discuss this with billing office at 479 883-5492.
||Tues-Friday, 1 pm to 8 pm, or other by special arrangement

||Thirty years in pastoral ministry prior to being licensed as Licensed Professional Counselor have given Dr. MacMahon a lot of experience in dealing with all types of life issues, with sensitivity and empathy. He gives hope and healing; he believes all people have worth, and he believes that no situation is too far gone for help. He has respect for all faiths.
Testimonial: "The first time i met Dr.Tom, I was going through a period of crisis in my marriage. I had gone to his office reluctantly. My wife and I were separated and headed for a divorce....My wife was the one who insisted I talk to D.Tom. Much to my surprise I discovered a kind, compassionate an who truly cared about my suffering." --S.G. (now happily reunited with his wife, they have a daughter, and he is in full-time ministry.)
