About Me

I have thought about and studied how people grow, heal and thrive for most of my life. My involvement in a 12 step group for many years gave me many clues: sharing our stories and challenges in an environment where trust and positive regard are present. I incorporate these two things in my counseling relationships. This help I received in my group was a big motivating factor in wanting to be a counselor. I entered Duquesne University in the nineties and graduated with a Masters in Counseling in 2001. I worked hard under supervision with a professional psychologist to attain the 3600 hours needed for licensure. Many of my clients suffered with depression, traumatic memories, addiction, co-dependency, and poor self esteem. Some were people struggling with homelessness. As I grew as a counselor, I began to realize that really powerful outcomes were present in my clients as they first dealt with their issues, and then began to consider what they might be called to do with their lives. I decided to attend seminary in 2005, and that training has provided a whole other level of care and training. I have worked for almost 20 years with individuals who were referred to me by Focus on the Family, New Life, and several Episcopal and Anglican Church leaders as well as local physicians. I’ve been fortunate to witness many wonderful results.

Expert listener with sound recommendations for extended support (like books, podcasts, therapeutic techniques, etc.). Helps me to express and clear my head. Exactly what I wanted.

It's only been a couple of weeks, but Connie has been both empathetic and supportive. I'm sure that as we work together, she'll help me sort out my 'stuff' and I look forward to that.

Written by T.Y. on Oct 13, 2021 after therapy with Constance for 1 month on issues concerning depression

Rev. Constance Hughes has been a very big help in helping me cope with grief. The fact that she can relate to loss and hardships is what really helps. Every time I speak with her, I feel like she's someone I can practically bear my soul to and vent about anything that's bugging me.

I've been battling depression prior to BetterHelp and without Rev. Hughes' counseling, kindness and willingness to listen, I would have been in a much darker place than I am right now. But she has helped keep me out of that place, and I can not thank her enough for it.

Rev. Hughes listened to me and helped me to feel comfortable in our sessions. She was very empathetic and her follow-up questions always made me think and helped me to reflect on my situation

I had just a session with Rev. Hughes so I honestly do not have much to say. She seems nice and experienced, she took time to listen to my concerns and only intervened when needed.

betterhelp paired me with a counselor that couldn't have been a better match for me. Rev. Hughes has a history and social experiences similar to mine. We share some hobbies, but more importantly, she listens to me and addresses my concerns with wisdom and empathy. I've only had one meeting with her, but I'm looking forward to addressing the issues I'm dealing with with her excellent guidance going forward.

I have only had a couple of sessions with Rev. Hughes, and I already feel like I could tell her anything, she has given me tools to help better myself and so far I have found my experience to be very helpful, I’m not gonna lie, I was concerned I would have trouble connecting with a reverend, because I don’t consider myself all that religious, but to my surprise, she hasn’t brought religion into play once and she has been very respectful to everything I have shared.

Connie has given me the keys to unlock a life I was missing. She has given me the tools to take my experience and build a life I want. I am so blessed to have had time with her. She listened and provided guidance in a time that was traumatic, and helped me unpack a life of misfortune and confusion. I am thankful to have her in my life.

Connie is kind, patient, loving and hold no bias when she is listening to my problems in life. The advise she offers is very constructive, sometimes is a book or verses from Bible, it offers me a broader view to see my problems in a different perspective. I feel more motivated and positive about life with someone on my team supporting me. And yes, I appreciate having Connie to be my life couch.

Rev Hughes is the Alchemist. I feel so much change in my life after a couple of sessions I have done with her. I have never felt so much self confidence and better self efficacy in my life. She made me look at myself in a new light. I am so grateful to her. God bless her and may she enlighten other lives around her.
