Before Coming to UAMS
If you have fever, cough or shortness of breath, do not come to UAMS or any other doctor’s office, urgent care clinic or emergency room without first calling and getting instructions.
If someone needs urgent medical care and could have been exposed to COVID-19, tell the operator when you call 911.
Outpatient Visitor Guidelines
Due to an increase in COVID-19 patients in Arkansas and across the country, UAMS is implementing new visiting policies for our clinics. Effective March 20, 2020, patients must come to their visit alone, unless there are special needs such as:
- Patients undergoing a procedure that requires a driver
- Minor patients
- Patients in a wheelchair who need assistance
Visitors must be 18 or older and pass a health screening before entering a UAMS building.
About The Couples Center
Clinical Practice for Couples
Our center offers relationship counseling for troubled couples, couples in the early stages of commitment, and couples seeking to enrich their emotional and sexual connection. We work with couples of all ages and stages of relationship, and are an affirmative provider for all sexual and gender orientations.
Clinical Training for Professionals
Couples therapy differs in significant ways from individual therapy and requires specialized training. Wakefield offers a series of one-day and on-line trainings on topics related to relationship work, sex therapy, and Interdynamic Couples Therapy™️– her method of couples work. She trains clinicians and clergy who want to become competent and confident in this specialized area of service provision.
We offer community Relationship Enrichment workshops for people who are motivated to make their relationships stronger, happier and healthier. We can offer an evening program, a series, or weekend workshop at your organization or place of workshop. Wakefield is also an engaging and sought after presenter for keynotes and conferences. Contact us if your organization or place of workshop is interested in booking an event with her.
Parking is available in Parking 1.
