Hi there. My name is Courtney Krolikowski. I have been working as a counselor for the past 8 years. I currently hold licenses for practicing in both North Carolina and Illinois. My license in Illinois is called LPC or Licensed Professional Counselor. My license in North Carolina is called LCMHC or Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor.I received my Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology from Benedictine University in Illinois. Illinois is where I was born and raised, but in 2017 I moved to North Carolina, for four years, to support my husband in his job. I now have moved back to the Midwest and reside in my husbands hometown in Wisconsin. In the past 8 years I have become a Nationally Certified Counselor as well as a Nationally Certified Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapist. Throughout my years as a counselor I have worked with those who have been domestic violence perpetrators and survivors, those who have been court ordered for anger management and parenting classes and those who have need trauma counseling. I have worked with individual client's who were in need of counseling for things such as Anxiety, Depression, Eating disorders, Bipolar disorder, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, etc. I have worked with individuals of all colors, religions, genders/identities (LGBTQ and more) and belief systems. I have also provided Couples Counseling and Family Therapy. My treatment approach is very person centered, focused on you, the client, and what you want and are looking for. My personal style is that the client is the driver and I, the therapist, am the passenger helping to guide you along. You, the client, are the one doing the work, setting the goals, I, the therapist, am helping provide you with ways to reach those goals.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, LGBT, Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Coaching, Compassion fatigue, ADHD

Courtney is an amazing therapist who goes above and beyond for her clients. Taking the time to check in through the BetterHelp messaging service. Being flexible with her availability if none of the posted times work with your schedule. She makes you feel comfortable during sessions and able to discuss problems without fear of judgement. She builds a strong relationship with her clients and follows up on progress for key problems. She is very intuitive and can help to analyze the root cause behind a feeling or thought. I would highly recommend her to other users of this app and will request her as my same therapist in the future.

Courtney has helped me greatly over the past year and a half with my anxiety. She is very knowledgeable and flexible in her approach, shared many tools and techniques, and gave plenty of space to talk through anything that was bothering me. She is warm and kind but not overbearing. I learned a lot and grew as a person. Thank you!

Courtney is everything that I have been looking for in a therapist. She gives a lot of feedback and her perspective, which I love. I will keep Courtney as my therapist for as long as possible. I have no doubt that we will heal my trauma together and she will help me thrive.

Courtney is a wonderful therapist. She creates a healthy space free of judgment and I have no trepidation when approaching a subject with her. She helps guide the conversation when needed and her advice and guidance is clearly informed by great training and intelligence/ knowledge. I feel heard and sympathised with (where appropriate) and have really grown and healed with her help, even in such a short period of time.

Courtney has been a bright light in a long tunnel of professionals who just didn't know what to do with me; she's always understanding and supportive of whatever issues I bring up, and has an enormous amount of knowledge of the kinds of problems I'm facing and need help with. She never gives me the impression that something I'm going through is either my own problem or unsolvable - and as a plus, she's very kind as a person herself.
