About Me

Greetings
My name is Constance. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who has been in the helping profession for 3 years and, I am pleased to say I Really Love this work. I thank GOD for this opportunity, it has been both personally and professionally rewarding!

Over the years, I have taken a nontraditional career path, from the field of Education, precisely teaching, Nursing, and Counseling. Equipped with these skills, knowledge and clinical expertise, I feel confident and prepared to help others in developing and achieving their life-long wellness.

My approach to counseling is warm and interactive. I am a firm believer in human dignity. Therefore, I view the therapeutic alliance as a partnership, requiring mutual trust, respect, honesty, communication, and commitment to do the work. I also believe that the changes we need in our lives will only come when we make a conscious decision to do so.
My therapy style and approach draws influence from Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Existential Therapy, Reality Therapy, Gestalt, Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, and Person Centered Therapy. Above all, I strongly believe in Devine Healing Power.
Finally I must say this; it takes courage to be able to identify a problem or problems in your life, and taking steps to seek assistance to move you forward to be the person you want to be. I believe you have the abilities and strengths in you, and all you need is coaching and guidance to help you harness them together to achieve life goals. It is an honor to be considered a potential partner on your journey.
God Bless.

Written by L.E. on Feb 20, 2021 after counseling with Constance for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, and self esteem

Constance is the best counselor I could ever ask for. She is warm and friendly. From the get go she seems attentive and engaging to help me. We have done multiple video calls and text messaging. Her advices are easy to practice and effective. I feel much better and confident every time when I speak with her. She is a gem and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking help on this platform!
