About Me

Hello my name is Constance,
I am a License Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the states of Virginia and Florida. I have 7 years of experience employed in behavioral health facilities, outpatient therapy clinics, correctional centers, and also providing medical social work/ therapy to oncology, emergent, and crisis patients in the hospital setting. Focusing on the client through a strength-based approach and building resilience is key in obtaining a therapeutic relationship and striving for successfully outcome. My professional experience includes working with adults with minor to severe mental illness, grief and loss, survivors of traumatic experiences, individuals with major medical conditions, suicidal ideations, domestic violence, child abuse and substance misuse. My niche is providing trauma informed care in addition to several other treatment modalities with all my clients since just living today can be traumatic. Therapy modalities I found through research displaying positive outcomes are Trauma Informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focus, and Narrative therapies. I'm currently enrolled in a doctoral program specializing in trauma informed care which can be used with any population or individual experiencing a wide range of psychosocial issues. Collaborating with you to build a safe and trustworthy partnership is something I am fully dedicated in doing. Together we will work on treatment goals and conflict resolutions. Most importantly you will be the driver in the front seat. I am compassionate and determined to ensure that you will be successful in your journey towards healing and emotional fortitude. Any issue had is worth being addressed and resolved. I look forward to working with you soon.

Constance is fabulous! She’s easy to talk with and understands and offers guidance without making me feel broken. She’s empathetic and supportive and has helped me put things into perspective. She’s outstanding!

Constance had a very pleasant way of being matter-of-fact and honest, while also showing she cares. Very grateful for her.

Constance is attentive, practical, patient and genuinely tries to help you address your therapy goals and the things that maybe impacting you unaware. She’s been helping me to cope with grieving recent deaths and the trauma of the past 19months with dignity, respect and humanity!

Though I’ve only had a couple of weeks of therapy with Constance, I already feel comfortable talking with her. She got a very calming presence and directs the conversation naturally yet with purpose. I feel listened to and respected - which was not the experience I have had previously with other therapists in the past.
