About Connie

A Personal Note
Connie Fox TherapistPart of my interest in working with anxiety and depression relates to my grandmother, Tess. Sadly, she spent much of her life in Minnesota state hospitals beginning in the 1930’s.

Due to the stigma associated with mental illness, my family hid her condition, even from me. With the help of Ancestry, I began to uncover what happened to her. Tess spent the better part of her adult life without much contact with her family. She was treated for “pregnancy related depression” and “mania” following the birth of my father. I can’t help but wonder if modern medication and treatment could have helped restore her functioning. By 1960 she was finally discharged when a compassionate nurse took her into her home. Now, from the other side of the universe, Tess inspires me to do whatever I can to bring peace to troubled minds and hearts.
