About this pro

Congratulations on taking your first step to a healthier and happier you! Hi, I'm Connie Haxby and I have over 14 years experience in the mental health field. I am passionate about the career I have chosen and truly enjoy assisting clients in their journey to make peace with the past and delve into a happier future. If life's stressors have gotten to be too much lately, please allow me to guide you to reaching your full potential. I have treated clients with a range of struggles including self-esteem, relationship issues, past trauma, grief, job stressors, anxiety and depression.
My clients have ranged from 15 to 74 years of age, and my approach is less "stuffy," and more casual, while still maintaining a professional demeanor. Scheduling a first-time appointment can be intimidating. What can I expect? What is this person like? Can I trust them?
Think of your initial consultation as a job interview - you get to choose whether this "relationship," is a good fit or not. Once we begin treatment, we will discuss the best direction to go with the goals you have in mind. Through different treatment modalities and a good working rapport, I'm certain we can get you to where you want to be!

I enjoy the process of seeing my clients grow into healthier, happier individuals through learning more about themselves including unhealthy past responses, and then working through traumas.  To see this first hand is an incredible process I am honored to be a part of.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Once a client takes that first step to reach out, I will do my best to schedule an appointment within 2 weeks of the initial contact.  Clients can go to my website under the Make An Appointment page to find new client paperwork, and bring that in with them for their first appointment.  


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I received a Bachelors Degree from Spalding University in Louisville, KY in 2005, and a Masters in Social Work in 2007.  I am also EMDR trained, and in the process of becoming Havening Certified.  


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

My flat rate for a 55-minute session is $115, however, I do accept a number of insurance plans where your copay and deductible are the only out-of-pocket costs for you.  In addition, I do offer out-of-network sessions, and will be happy to supply you with the appropriate paperwork needed to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. 


How did you get started in this business?

I have always been intrigued by psychology and how the brain works - why we do the things we do, think the way we think, and so forth.  I wanted a career that would combine this with the flexibility of being my own boss.  I am truly passionate about what I do, and can't imagine doing anything else. 


What types of customers have you worked with?

I enjoy working with adults on an individual basis, specifically with those who have experienced any form of trauma - be it slight negative beliefs that have developed over time to what we call "Big T Traumas," such as assaults, abuse, violence and such.  In addition, I have also worked with those who are looking to work through daily life stressors - those every day things that we all go through that become difficult to navigate as our plates become more full.  


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently completed my 40th half-marathon in Washington D.C. and hope to complete a race in all 50 states.  I feel it is important to challenge ourselves as individuals, and accomplishing difficult tasks builds confidence and a feeling of achievement. 


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

First and foremost, find someone that you click with.  Make sure the therapist you pick is someone that you have a good rapport with, feel comfortable with, and can talk with easily.  This should be like talking to a trusted friend.  Regardless of treatment modalities, the therapeutic relationship is the most important aspect of treatment. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

What do I want to get out of treatment?  What are my goals?  Am I opening to working on "hard things," and hearing thing that may be difficult to hear about myself?  Am I ready to change and grow myself, and let go of the expectation I put on others?
