SOMEONE TO WALK ALONGSIDE YOU


Life is challenging. Hearts get broken. Spirits get crushed. As we do life, all of us need others to walk alongside us. Sometimes a relative or a friend walks with us. At other times we benefit most by spending time with an experienced counselor who has years of education and experience helping during struggles and sorrows, teaching skills needed to deal with life’s challenges and losses.

Dr. Marilyn Stinson has spent a lifetime learning how to help people work through problems. As a psychologist and social worker, she compassionately shares sound principles with those who desire to overcome life’s obstacles. She can help you gain perspective and skills at those difficult times in life when you need someone to walk alongside you. Marilyn will help bring you closer to feeling the vibrancy God longs to bring you, by helping you identify your concerns and struggles, examining the pain around these, and journeying through the process required to bring you to healthier relationships—with yourself and others.

DR. MARILYN STINSON is a Licensed Psychologist, Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). She has been in private practice in Arlington, Texas, for over 20 years. She received her doctorate in Counseling Psychology from Texas Tech University and her Masters in Social Work from the University of Texas at Arlington.

 

Marilyn combines listening empathetically and teaching life-giving skills to help others develop life strategies and abilities that will allow them to live healthier lives and enjoy better relationships. She utilizes an eclectic approach when treating clients, combining concepts from various theories to help clients work through painful life experiences that are holding them back from a peaceful, full life. As a Christian, Marilyn incorporates Christian principles in her counseling, believing that the Bible is one of the best psychology books in the world, but NEVER binds her beliefs on others, regardless of their worldview.

 

Marilyn has been married for over thirty years and has three grown children. She enjoys reading, speaking to groups, bicycling and time with family. She is passionate about life and walking alongside others as they work through life’s struggles.

COUNSELING


Dr. Stinson primarily counsels adults, but also guides some adolescents. She works with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress (PTSD), relationship problems (marital, premarital, adult child and parents, etc.) and other issues.

 

Dr. Stinson typically combines psychological and spiritual concepts in therapy. She believes the Bible is the best counseling / psychology book possible. Although Marilyn sees many clients who prefer Christian counseling, she respects those who do not want to bring spiritual matters into counseling, and works from this perspective with these clients.
