Donabelle Hess

My counseling pedagogy is centered on systems theory, where individual problems are seen within the context of their relationships at the micro- and macro-level.  Therefore, it is my goal as a therapist that I understand and examine the complex interactions and relations of the clients I assist, so that I can provide the proper guidance and recommendations.  My goal is to help individuals, couples, and families deal with relationship and behavioral challenges, as well as, offer a long-term solution to mental, behavioral, and emotional issues.  This is achievable by connecting with clients on a deep level, providing a caring atmosphere, and offering a listening ear.  I will make certain that I provide a safe environment where individuals can heal, grow, and discover their true sense of self.

Who is Donabelle Hess?

I am currently in the clinical phase of the marriage and family therapy master’s program at Northcentral University.  I am also a military sociologist and an adjunct professor of sociology at Park University, Little Rock Air Force Base campus.  I previously worked as a military work/life consultant for the U.S. Department of the Air Force at Geilenkirchen NATO Air Base, Germany.  I have extensive experience in developing, preparing, and delivering programs that supported military families in the areas of personal and family readiness/resilience, transition/relocation, and work/family life (interpersonal communication skills, relationship building, maintaining long-distance relationships – during deployment and other separations – marriage preparation, positive parenting, eldercare, time management, anger management/conflict resolution, and team building).  Those activities were educational in nature and offered in group or individual settings.  I also had the opportunity to work with a team of NATO military family subject matter experts in the development of an integrative global model of military child well-being.  I earned a doctorate in sociology, military studies specializing in family, gender, and social stratification; a master’s in human relations focusing on family and organizational behavior; and a bachelor of arts in sociology from the University of Oklahoma, Norman.
