About Me

I consider it my life's work to help heal broken hearts. I am a counselor licensed in North Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky with over 15 years of experience working as a Cognitive Behavioral Counselor and Life Coach helping those that are hurting to heal. I have worked with clients from all walks of life (including veterans) with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, anger management and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced emotional, relational and intimate relationship trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is relationship centered, warm and interactive. The process of counseling is truly about gaining or regaining hope, healing and growth. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will assist you to tailor our dialog and to develop goals and a treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to heal and having a relationship with someone you trust has proven to be effective when seeking a more fulfilling and happier life. So as you take the first steps towards a change, if you are ready to take that step and willing to do your work, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Connie has such a natural way of addressing issues I’ve been having for years and didn’t know were an issue until we talked them through. You have to be open to spending time to better yourself but she has incredible alternative ideas to make improvements in your life.

Very knowledgeable. Took time to listen to what I had to say and provided effective feedback. Worked with me to develop good coping mechanisms and good habits to handle stressful situations.

I love Miss Connie. She’s been very helpful to me in helping with my anxiety. I’ve been through counseling off and on my entire life, but Miss Connie has shared things that I’ve never heard before. I truly appreciate her and the help she’s given me.

Mrs. Drew is an amazing counselor and expert listener. I feel like she truly listens to me and offers me constructive and helpful feedback that I can practically use. Her approach to counseling has been the best and most helpful for me by far. I also find the worksheets and exercises she sends to be very insightful. Connie is also very punctual and quick to respond and appreciate the open door she has where I can message anytime and she’s more then willing to listen and offer feedback. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Written by E.R. on May 02, 2019 after counseling with Connie for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and parenting issues

Connie was a great match for me as my need to talk was mostly about parenting and family concerns. Her years of professional work with a variety of clients is apparent in her skillful teasing apart of my real stressors.

Written by L.A. on Apr 18, 2019 after counseling with Connie for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and career difficulties

I truly trust Connie. She’s great at helping me to have hope and living my best life right now. Living with any terminal disease causes depression, anxiety, stress, and-- of course-- feeling lost. She helps me reduce these issues into bite-sized pieces that I can manage. She’s the best!

Connie is wonderful. We've only had a few sessions but she has already helped me feel comfortable. In the past I have never felt comfortable opening up to anyone. She is very warm and compassionate.

Written by J.E. on Mar 08, 2019 after counseling with Connie for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and career difficulties

Connie Drew is amazing. She helps me work with daily struggles with a positive outlook and inspiring insight. She is great at following along with me as my life stressors shift from personal to work to family. She helps me navigate every day as it comes and keeps me in the present moment. She helps keep me grounded and allows me to recognize that I'm doing great things no matter how big or small. Connie is easy to talk to. I felt no pressure to explain my entire life's story in the first session, which can sometimes feel daunting. She is great at remembering previous conversations and picking up where you last left off. She is also wonderful at being there for you when life takes a lefthand turn, and all priorities go out the window. Just knowing I have Connie Drew in my back pocket helps me tremendously.

Connie has been a huge help in my healing process. I have a lot more work to do and I am looking to work further with her to achieve the goals we plan to set to help shape the life I want and need. Connie has been very responsive in understanding my anxieties and my roadblocks in my life and always sends me worksheets and reading materials so that I can continue to learn in between our sessions. I highly recommend this platform as I have a very tough work schedule and this helps me have flexibility In which my daily work is not disrupted.
