Connie Pettitt, LPC
A little about me...
I am a Christian, who is passionate about providing counseling services for
individuals and families.
The specific Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) offered at Heartland, can help - as you begin to develop the coping skills necessary to change your problematic thoughts and or behaviors.
I facilitate a therapeutic atmosphere where you are given the
opportunity to develop, work through, and achieve your personal goals.
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 will listen and provide you with confidential therapeutic counseling sessions.
You do not have to face life challenges, stressors, and the anxiety-riddled situations alone.
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.
INDIVIDUAL & FAMILY COUNSELING
Individual and Family Counseling sessions can be very helpful if you’re willing to do the work to connect. It is an investment for you and the relationships that are most important and meaningful to you. The opportunity is to learn how to hear, see and interpret stimuli involved in your environment. 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 in a safe environment. Homework is regularly offered to achieve your counseling goals in a timely manner.
Premarital and Marriage Counseling is an opportunity to develop a
deeper appreciation, understanding, and respect for each other. It's a time of discovery and growth.
This investment of your time is a great opportunity, to be 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 the areas
that 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 and married couples can complete their counseling sessions within 7-10 sessions.
Premarital and Marital Therapy Sessions can be very exciting, rewarding and can set you both on a path to fulfillment.
At Heartland, you will have a confidential and judgment-free environment where the two of you can share anything.
Throughout you will have the opportunity to learn new and effective ways to; celebrate and discover one another. Lastly, my goal for the two of you - is to leave your sessions - being hope filled, educated and empowered to make your convenient relationship - one that can go the distance and is celebrated for a lifetime.
Heartland's client-centered trauma-informed counseling will encourage renewed hope and healing throughout your time at Heartland. Individuals that have experienced trauma
are treated with the upmost 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.
