Connie Guy, MS, LMHC, CMHS

Individual and Couples Therapist*

Connie believes in the power of empathy and connection to heal and transform people and bring them from a place of merely surviving to creating a life that they could only imagine.  She has a passion for working with individuals, couples and families in the LGBTQ community to provide them with the support, skills and hope needed to guide them in their journey of discovery and transformation.  Connie is warm, genuine and intentional in creating an environment that invites clients to share their thoughts and feelings in an authentic way.  

Working with Individual Adults
Life can sometimes feel overwhelming and stressful.  Whether due to exciting changes like new family members, a career change or new opportunities or due to the loss of relationships or things that you had come to depend on, it can often feel as though you don’t have the skills or resources to cope.  Connie assists you in discovering how to navigate these changes, process any feelings of loss, fear or anxiety and provide strategies to manage and cope with life on your own terms.  

Working with Couples 
Feeling unable to communicate within your relationship can feel lonely and isolating.  When barriers to communication arise, it can sometimes be difficult to know where to begin to create greater intimacy and connection.  Past trauma or a history of difficult relationships can create walls and distance within the relationship.  Connie utilizes the Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy to help you and your partner discover ways to create and sustain the relationship you are hoping for.  

How I Can Help
Connie is trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), EMDR and Lifespan Integration to assist you in healing wounds, processing the past and creating the life that you want for yourself and your family.  She pulls from a history of working in community mental health and in specialized residential settings with adolescents to provide tools for hope and healing.
