About me

I am a licensed therapist with over ten years of experience providing one on one counseling. I have worked with clients facing a broad range of life stressors, including depression, anxiety, insomnia and traumatic stress responses. I have many years of experience in treating individuals facing multiple issues at the same time, including substance use problems and intimate partner violence. My most recent focus has been working with service members and veterans.

I provide a nonjudgmental space for individuals to feel safe. I believe in developing a strong therapeutic relationship to support clients in meeting their goals. I utilize a combination of evidenced based techniques to address difficult issues. If you are in a place where you could benefit from addressing some life stressors, I encourage you to take the next step!

Connie has been great! She has really helped me with my anxiety and panic attacks. She understands my condition and helps me with cognitive coping skills.

Connie is great. We only had a couple sessions, but I found her extremely helpful. She is professional and prompt in her responses. She met me where I was and seemed in tune with my needs and goals. She provided resources that I can come back to after my time with her has come to and end. I have really appreciated her insight.
