Welcome to

Heartland Therapies!

Connie Pettitt, LPC-S

A little about me... 

I am passionate about providing counseling services. I believe every person is unique.  In that, you will find that I approach each therapy session with an open mind and an integrated approach to our therapy session. 

Advanced training received in nonprofit management, opened an opportunity to lead a DV Agency.  There, I was able to provide victims safe and effective counseling and advocacy services for 13 years.  Now trained in EMDR, I have a strong foundation in trauma-informed care and crisis intervention counseling services. 

Inspired to help, I am licensed in Texas and Oklahoma.  Further, I am a Texas LPC Supervisor, Parent Facilitator, Parent Coordinator, Expert Witness, and Life Coach.   

My hope is to help you begin the process of developing the coping skills necessary to change your problematic situations, thoughts, and or behaviors.

My goal is to facilitate a therapeutic atmosphere whereas you are supported as you develop, work through, and achieve your personal benchmarks.  

In that, if you are looking for a nonjudgmental professional counselor, I want to encourage you that you have found a safe and effective place to enhance your well-being.  I am an active listener and will provide you feedback within our counseling sessions. 

Please remember, there's always hope and you do not have to face life challenges, stressors, and all the anxiety-riddled situations in this life alone.  In seeking support from Heartland Therapies, you can trust, that in all circumstances, you will be shown unconditional positive regard as you bravely face challenges and ultimately discover your strength and path.

Counseling sessions can be very helpful if you’re willing to do the work.  It is an investment of you -  for you and the relationships that are most important and meaningful to you. 

You will be given the opportunity to hear, see, and interpret stimuli involved in your own environment but this will be in a nonconfronting space

You will become familiar with new and practical skill sets that can help you to identify and modify self-defeating patterns of behavior and negative thinking in your own life. 

Counseling at Heartland is an excellent form of self-care; that will allow you to explore your own thoughts and feelings. 

Homework is regularly offered to achieve your counseling goals in a timely manner.

Premarital Counseling is an opportunity to develop a deeper appreciation, understanding, and respect for each other. It is a beautiful time of discovery and growth. The investment of your time is a great opportunity, to be really honest about your goals, needs, and what it takes to be nurtured in your relationship. 

During your sessions, you will have the opportunity to realize what is really working and what areas could use some time and attention to be more effective.

Heartland Therapies utilizes the SYMBIS Assessment Tool as a framework and guide for our sessions. 

Most pre-marital couples can complete their counseling sessions within 7-10 sessions. 

Premarital and Counseling Sessions can be very exciting, rewarding, and can set you both up for success and fulfillment

At Heartland, you will have a confidential and judgment-free safe environment where the two of you can process and share anything. 

Throughout you will have the opportunity to learn new and effective ways to; celebrate and discover one another. 

Lastly, I want to share, that my goal for the two of you - is to leave your sessions - being hope-filled, educated, and empowered to make the best decisions moving forward.  One that hopefully, can go the distance and is celebrated throughout your lifetimes.

Heartland Therapies offers client-centered and trauma-informed counseling that will encourage renewed hope and foster healing throughout.  All Clients are treated with the up-most compassion and respect.

The goal is to help survivors regain their sense of self, security, safety, self-worth, self-esteem, and well-being.  Throughout, you will have the opportunity to learn about your personal rights, resources, and choices -  that can provide you with a sense of empowerment and agency. 

Developmentally, the survivor will learn how to set healthy boundaries for themselves and for future relationships.  Crisis intervention processes will enable survivors the opportunity to understand the various forms of abuse and we will define power and control tactics.

Treatment considerations, for those who have experience trauma-related depression and or anxiety could be CBT, Group Therapy, or EMDR.
