About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Missouri and Illinois. I have over 5 years of experience working in the Mental Health field. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns, including LGBTQIA+ issues, addiction, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and parenting problems. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I treat the person, not the diagnosis. My approach is based on Narrative Theory but integrates other modalities as needed in each individual situation. My goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment focused on empowering you to be able to navigate life's inevitable challenges with confidence.

I look forward to connecting with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Courtney Bishop. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Courtney is an amazing counselor. Regardless of personal views around faith/religion, sexuality, politics, and the like which may or may not come up inevitably in your work, she is always respectful, empathetic, and willing to learn and challenge when needed. She is well-read in psychological theories and practice and is able to speak to the issues you're going through very succinctly. She's a kind soul with plenty to offer professionally; she is fun, personable, and serious about your health.
