About Constance Hightower
Originally from the midwest and east coast, Ms Hightower is a graduate of Case Western Reserve University with over 30 years of practice. Her experience includes private practice and work with courts, state/county divisions of child and family welfare, foster care/ adoption, high schools and colleges. Her expertise extends to adolescents and adults focusing on attachment, trauma, depression, grief and loss, anger management, adjustment to sudden life changes, depression, anxiety, racial identity, LGBTQ, gender and parenting issues.
My practice is inclusive and has evolved from 30 years of work with clients from various socioeconomic, cultural, ethnic, geographic origins, sexual orientations, the LGBTQ community and gender issues.
We are all involved in a constant effort to balance our lives; to restore belief in our own power to face challenges that are sometimes overwhelming. We want someone to hear our story in a safe and non-judgmental space in order to gain fresh insight into our own abilities and to recover from the initial feelings of helplessness and confusion. Individualized guidance, can lead to the discovery of one’s own strengths and a gradual movement towards solutions that can be developed, in partnership, to restore that balance that we all strive to maintain when challenges leave us without answers, defeated and feeling powerless.
