About:

Constance L. Bennett, MS, LPCC.

I am an EMDR certified therapist who works with clients from culturally diverse backgrounds. I specialize in PSTD, trauma, depression, anxiety, relationships, and adolescent development.


As a therapist, I encourage my clients to embrace the therapeutic process even though it can be a struggle at times to get through the emotional issues in need of healing.


My inspiration to become a therapist was first and foremost God calling me to service and my father William D. Bennett, a World War II Army veteran who never received mental health services to heal his own internal pain. 


This experience left me with a deep awareness of my own life purpose. As a therapist, I believe in helping clients to heal their own internal issues by providing insight and support while they empower themselves. When a client takes the first step and seek therapy or counseling, it can be uncomfortable and/or a low time emotionally in one's life. I work to provide support to my clients with empathy, compassion, insight, self-awareness and genuine regard. It is my belief, that anyone can heal, thrive, prosper and rise to ones greatest potential in life. If your willing to take the time to do the emotional work for self healing, you can and eventually will...Take Flight!

How important is confidentiality in the field of counseling?

 

All medical and health professionals follow specific guidelines around confidentiality, and for counselors, confidentiality is a key aspect of the ACA Code of Ethics. Additionally, counselors are bound by equivalent laws that medical doctors are, specifically the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, which is mandated by federal law. This law dictates that private medical records, including psychological state records and people obtained through counseling or therapy, are protected and shall remain confidential. There are a couple of exceptions to this, for instance, if you're seeing a counselor and therefore the counselor believes you pose a threat to yourself or others or that a threat is posed to a minor, elderly person, or person with disabilities, then these circumstances are going to be reported to the acceptable authorities. If our client shows signs of threatened suicide, a counselor may prefer to contact a beloved one rather than or in addition to the authorities.
