Connie Haxby, LCSW
Who Is Your Therapist?
Connie Haxby, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and State of Tennessee, has been touching lives in the field of mental health since 2005. Connie graduated from Spalding University in Louisville, Kentucky with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, and a Master’s Degree in Social Work. Connie has worked with multiple populations including Adolescents, Adults and Families, and has had extensive experience in facilitating therapy groups.
What Populations Does Connie Treat?
Connie provides services to adults 18 years of age and older for psychological treatment on an individual basis. If you need a referral to a therapist who specializes in couples, children or chemical dependency, please see our Referral Page.
What Kinds of Therapies are Practiced?
The empowerment and self-satisfaction that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) provides can be tremendous esteem-boosters for clients. Since the client is often-times searching for answers, a Brief Solution-Focused approach is also used in order to focus more on coming to a resolution, rather than re-hashing the past. Connie also encourages clients to explore the ways in which mind, body and spirit play a role in their lives through Holistic Therapy. Additionally, Connie has been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) since 2013: a beneficial therapy approach that can help client's move forward from traumatic experiences, as well as negative beliefs the client has about themselves. In 2019, Connie became the first Certified Havening Techniques Practitioner in the Nashville area, and practices this technique on a regular basis with those suffering from negative effects from trauma and other undesirable symptoms. She has also completed Phase 1 of Brainspotting training and is currently working towards becoming a Certified Brainspotting therapist.
Will I be Prescribed Medication?
Therapists are not Medical Doctors and therefore cannot prescribe medications to clients. If you feel that you need medication, you should contact either your General Practitioner, a psychiatrist or nurse practitioner specializing in psychiatric medication. Check with your insurance to see who is in-network as many psychiatrists have gotten away from paneling with insurance companies, and have moved to a private-pay only practice.
