Rev. Vickie D. Arends SRPC, PRPC

Born and raised in Springdale, Arkansas. Graduated High School and attended the University of Arkansas to study Greek and Latin terms. I have always loved working in medicine and know a lot about medications.  I am a licensed Reflexologist, in the beautiful state of North Dakota where we lived for almost 5 years. 

I have a love for animals especially horses, I think they are beautiful. I also understand how they can be excellent therapy for some people. I would like to see female partners find healing through equine therapy although, we use Gestalt techniques and talk therapy as well. 

I have 47 hours of Sex Addiction Recovery training and 31 hours of Partner Recovery training. Six (6) months of supervision with Dr. Doug Weiss, President of the American Association of Sex Addition Therapy.

Also, 30 hours of Care and Counsel of Trauma (PTSD) training through Military Ministry since 2013.

I come from experience in these areas in my own life as well. I grew up with a father who suffered from PTSD. 

Also, I was married to a man who was  sexually addicted. I fully understand how a partner feels in that kind of relationship.

I am passionate about helping partners recover and grow in self confidence and reach their goals.

Also, I want to see people heal from this addiction and live the life God meant for them to live.

Addiction comes from a place of hurt and pain so often,  and these traumas need to be worked through to heal.

I have worked with people who have PTSD ( Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.) This disorder comes to people in different ways with many different causes. 

I have been married to my wonderful husband Philip, my soulmate since 2011. Ordained by Pastor Billy Coffman, Christian Centers International in 2012 along with my husband Philip.
