Connie Simpson, M.A., LPC/MHSP
I am a therapist because so many of us are suffering, struggling, maybe gasping for air…alone. Healing
happens in the context of community and relationship and I consider it an honor to be a part of another
human being’s healing. In over two decades of counseling, I have learned that I never stop learning—
about people, about healing, about what is helpful and what is not. I approach every session from a
position of respect and curiosity. I realize that making the step to come to counseling often comes with
feelings of vulnerability and that I am being invited to do sacred work.
I understand how our culture pressures us to do more, be more, and accomplish a never ending list of
tasks, leading us to feel that there’s no way we can catch up, measure up, or be good enough. My offering
as a counselor is to walk alongside children, adolescents, and adults living with symptoms of depression,
anxiety, stress, post-partum issues, infertility, parenting, and family challenges in a quest for hope and
In the therapeutic relationship, I seek first to make a connection by learning about your experience and
life—not just by hearing—but by intentionally listening to who you are and about your vision for your
life. I do this by being open and getting to know you. I then explore with you possibilities for reaching
your fullest potential. And always, I encourage you, your strengths, and your innate resilience to move
toward spiritual, emotional, and psychological health.
