Connie Lancaster, LCMHC
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor
We all experience ups and downs in life and I strongly believe that seeking help during the difficult times is a sign of great strength, not weakness, as it is a first step toward change. As a therapist, I view counseling as a collaborative process in which the client’s input and insight is just as valuable as mine. I strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which clients can be heard, supported, and empowered to transform their lives through exploration of thoughts and beliefs, behavioral patterns, and experiences that tend to hold them back. Through active participation in psychotherapy, clients can build on their inner strengths and develop the skills necessary to achieve the change and growth desired.

I have experience working with all ages in community mental health centers, a state governmental agency, non-profits, and small group practices. My experience includes work with survivors of abuse, severe and persistent mental illness, children with emotional and behavioral issues, separation, divorce, and relationship difficulties. I’ve facilitated groups dealing with self-esteem, anger management, chronic pain, social skills, and parenting. My professional experience also involves providing vocational assessment and counseling to individuals with mental health and/or substance abuse diagnoses. Finally, I have a significant interest in supporting individuals and couples who are dealing with fertility issues and/or the adoption process, as well as, individuals attempting to recover from traumatic events.
