Ron Stephens Sr Clinical Director of Connected Counseling Community Center

I realize that no two people are the same and as such tailor my therapy to meet the specific needs of my clients. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, or any other issue, I will help you recognize underlying problems, fully realize your strengths and adjust certain behaviors and thoughts to see things a different, healthier way.

I am licensed to provide mental health and substance abuse prevention and intervention services in North Carolina and Florida. I have worked for over 35years serving active duty service members and their families, including military veterans and their families. As a retired Veteran, I believe it is essential to give back to our military community, which I consider my life work and True North. I will not waste your reading time with my long line of credentials which can be verified through state and national licensing boards. However, upon our first meeting, I will provide you with a professional letter of disclosure describing and listing my credentials by name and date.

I look forward to helping you and your family become the best version of you.
