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 listens very well and is super professional. She makes you feel comfortable with sharing info with a complete stranger lol I'm looking forward to more sessions in the near future.
Mrs. Connie is professional and seeks to understand her clients needs in a special way.
I needed to reschedule last minute and Connie was very understanding and set a new time with me.
We are off to a good start. My biggest concern was feeling uncomfortable talking about uncomfortable things. That is not the case.
Connie is amazing.
Only 3 sessions in and we're already making progress. Connie has been great!
I’ve only had one session with Connie, but I immediately felt at ease talking with her and felt better after we chatted. She listened. She gave me feedback. She went over different ways for me to work on healing. I believe this is going to be a wonderful, productive time with her. I have actually already told 2 of my friends about BetterHelp.com and about Connie.
Connie listens!! She allows me to talk about feelings but also gives practical solutions. She is also great at acknowledging my progress no matter how small.
Love Dr Drew!
Connie is awesome and has help me through some family drama. I feel more confident and can see thing more clearly after talking through situations with her.
Connie is very kind and attentive. I appreciate the time she takes to listen to my concerns and provides tools and coping skills to deal with my situation. I highly recommend her.
Connie has been incredibly supportive of me and my decisions. She actually listens and has validated me in a way I haven't had before.
Our conversations are very helpful and I feel supported.
Connie is very loving, caring and passionate in helping others. She is a patient listener, non-judging. She was very perceptive in my needs and also honest with me. She always encourages me to see the best in myself and provides you tools you can use to get to a place of loving you. She is honest that it does takes consistent hard work to get there but the reward of peace is worth it.
She is fantastic and just what I needed!
Connie is thoughtful, responsible, and accessible. I love that I can message her and she replies. It's not always instantaneous but she gets back to me and it's not just some 2 word reply. She listens to me and tries to figure the underlying issue and help YOU figure out the best thing for you! I'm really glad I got paired with her.

I’ve worked with Connie for several months now and appreciate that she really hears me. She helps me meet my own goals and is a wonderful support to help me get through life’s challenges.
Connie Drew was very professional she knows her job very well. She always knows what it takes to get you to a better place when you are feeling bad. I appreciate her and I respect what she does for a living because she cares for people. Most of all I like about her is that she loves the lord and what she does.
Connie’s been very helpful and within the first two sessions. She goes at your pace and is very welcoming and understanding. My first experience with a therapist has been great and I’m glad i was paired with her.
Ms Connie Drew and I have started working together for a couple of weeks now. She makes me feel safe which is very important to me. Ms Drew is very trustworthy and compassionate, when she talks to you, you can hear the positivity and the joyful laughter in her voice.
I am already looking towards my next session with Ms Drew. She draws my attention to things that I haven't notice about myself, her insights are on point.
She gave me hope I can reach a better place, something I haven't felt in years.
Highly and strongly recommend!
Connie is very helpful. She cares and listens and helps me discover how to reframe my anxieties and prime my mind to better manage them. I have really started to feel better working with her each week.
Connie has given tremendous support and praise in everything that I am doing so far. I have the upmost confidence that Connie will guide me down a path that will help me become a more healthier and happier person in the future and teaching me skills that will improve my future relationships.
I'm not sure I have the adequate words to express how much Dr. Drew has helped me. She is supportive, and has given me so many different outlets and tools to work through our therapy together. I have had therapists who have tunnel vision in where they'd like to direct the conversation, and it was a relief to not have that with Dr. Drew. She lets me organically go where I need to in the session. She also has been able to connect with my personality and direct therapy in a fashion that is conducive to my learning. I couldn't recommend her enough.
I have finally found the perfect counselor for me. Connie is very knowledgeable and in just two short sessions has helped me already so much. She truly cares and has a natural knack for helping people.
I've had two sessions with Connie. Both went well. I like her SO MUCH MORE than the last counselor I had in-person. Her approach is caring and kind.
Connie was there in a very difficult time in my life. She has given me great support and an ear to bend, as well as amazing tips that really help me. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is going through a difficult time. Thanks so much for all the help you have given me!
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.
Connie is very knowledgeable, and I feel at ease when confiding in her. She offers practical solutions to issues that might arise in your daily life.
10/10 anything else is a misclick
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.
Connie has been completely understanding and respectful of me. She has helped me through better understanding my situation. Would highly recommend talking with her.
Connie has been really helpful in helping me navigate my challenges. My confidence is getting stronger and my understanding of how & why things are happening is getting better. I am grateful and appreciative for Connie.
Connie has been amazing, she is honest and trustworthy. I am so happy I matched with her.
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!
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.
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.
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 is very generous and kind. She has alot of knowledge and expertise. I enjoy working with her.
She is very nice and sweet and extremely helpful. She puts me at ease.
She is incredible.
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.
Connie was tremendously understanding and a lovely person. She really listened to what I had to say, and always helped me get through anything I needed help with. She’s amazing!
Connie is patient, calm and insightful. I respect her as my counselor.
I felt like Connie was experienced and good at quickly connecting. Looking forward to working with her more.
