About me

Hi, my name is Connie Owens and I am a licensed therapist with more than 20 years of experience in helping others. During these 2+ decades, I have obtained a medical license to practice in multiple states and learned that while being evidence-based trained is helpful it is better to be evidence-based informed. It is a fact that we are each unique and that what works for one may not work for another. That is why I utilize a Holistic Approach; I fully understand that to heal the whole you, we must treat the whole you. In all facets of therapy, we will address the 4 human interdependent parts; Mind, Body, Soul, and Spirit. I have experience in various areas from birth-death (or Hospice). I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Therapist with several years of experience in helping others overcome trauma. And, it is hard these days not to mention trauma without discussing Narcissistic Abuse, which I also specialize in. I have helped hundreds of women and men not only break free from Narcissistic Abuse but also break the cycle so it does not happen again. Additionally, I also have many years of experience in Christian Counseling, Substance Use Disorders, Relationship Issues, Grief and Loss, Mental Health, Individual Therapy, and Group Therapy. More recently (although I have implemented these principles all along) I have wrapped up my Certification in Functional Nutrition and can now add to my resume that I am a Board Certified Holistic Mental Health Practitioner. Nutrition is only 1 area of focus with me. Your mental health is affected by everything you are exposed to so together we will address those things and come up with a plan that works for you so you can live your best quality of life.

My approach is gentle, yet direct. I will always meet you where you are and respect all of your beliefs and values.

I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. My overall treatment approach is a Holistic Approach that utilizes CBT, DBT, Psychodynamic, Motivational Interviewing, and Biblical Principles and Truths for those looking for Christ -Centered Therapy- AKA an Eclectic Approach.

It takes courage to ask for help and commit to make changes, to improve your quality of life. I get that, so when you're ready I am here to empower you in your healing journey by supporting you and teaching you how to do it. One thing I'd like you to remember is-If you put in the work you will get the results.

Connie is so great! I feel heard for the first time. She is straight forward in a compassionate way.

Connie is kind, respectful and very knowledgeable. She is considerate of her clients' feelings but does not sugar coat. She focuses on Biblical wisdom and is very good at not only providing therapy but also coaching. My emotional and mental health have improved tremendously since I started talking to her.

Connie never lets me down. Her support and faith in me is transformative. I know I have a long way to go in that transformation - but I also know her care, compassion and professionalism will be important to get me there!

Connie's expertise and care has been instrumental in helping me deal with a number of highly charged situations in my life. Her kindness, knowledge, experience, and compassion have been instrumental in helping me identify coping mechanisms and sorting through very complicated family and social situations. Thinking back to when I started working with Connie, I have made so much progress. Her ongoing support and skill will continue to be a critical piece of my personal self care and maintenance of good mental well-being. Thank you, Connie!
