Hello, my name is Connie. I am a licensed professional counselor in Pennsylvania with about 6 years of counseling experience. I have worked with clients with a range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, family conflicts, and trauma within outpatient and family-based home settings. My therapy style includes the use of empathy, strength-based focus, and mindfulness. My therapeutic approach includes strength-based and systems therapy. This means exploration and reflection in how people have experienced their family system and how multiple systems in their life continue to affect them; such as school, jobs, community, etc. I find importance in open communication, promoting understanding, and building trust. I want to help others uncover the strengths that they already have to help them with their struggles. To do this, I will find which therapy style best fits the individual. I want to be an additional support for clients who have taken this first step to seek therapy. I look forward to working with you.
Additional areas of focus: Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Depression, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue, ADHD, Abandonment, Attachment Issues, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Communication Problems, Emptiness, Family of Origin Issues, Family Problems, Life Purpose, Self-Love, Women's Issues, Workplace Issues, Young Adult Issues

Coni has been such a blessing into my life. I have grown immensely since starting our sessions and I always know she is a click away in the moments I need her and she always responds quickly and helpfully.

Constance has been a sounding board during a pivotal change in my life. I've been able to tell her slivers of my life, and it feels like she's known the entire story for years. She is highly adept and attune to what's happening in the big-picture, and puts things into a clear perspective for me. Constance truly listens well, and is invested in my well-being. She is also very personable and establishes a trustworthy relationship quickly. I feel very blessed to have Constance in my life!
