About Me

I am a marriage and family therapist licensed in California with over 8 years of experience. I have met with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, anger, behavioral issues and ADHD. I have worked with clients who have experienced emotional and/or physical abuse. I have worked with children, teens, adults, and families with various backgrounds and beliefs, as well.

My counseling style is gentle, integrative, and collaborative. I believe in treating every client with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I strive to create a warm, safe, trusting and positive therapeutic relationship and environment free from judgment. My approach combines client-centered, cognitive-behavioral, family, and solution focused therapeutic approaches. I strive to tailor therapy to fit each individual according to their unique situation and goals.

If you’re feeling stuck or stressed out, looking to make changes in your life, or need to unload pain in a safe place, talking with a therapist might help. Feel free to contact me, if you’d like to give it a try. I look forward to meeting and working with you!

Courtney has been my counselor for a year now, and has always been very responsive to my requests and also very receptive in our theory sessions. She listens intently and poses questions or gives feedback that make me develop further thought into a situation.

Courtney is great! She is an amazing listener and great at making connections between different things in my life that I wasn't aware existed. She instantly made me feel comfortable opening up to her.

Courtney is a really wonderful and thoughtful therapist. She was a great balance of supportive and enlightening. I talked to her about everything from work problems, relationship challenges, and parent issues, and she provided so much helpful support on everything. She also made sure to validate how I feel while gently suggesting new viewpoints. Courtney helped me through a really tough time in my life when I didn't know what I was doing and she helped me be stronger and to stand up for myself.

Courtney is very good with pacing me after a traumatic event, enabling me to better meet my most important daily tasks; enabling me to better interact with the fast pace and often indifferent world. She is kind and supportive within our own sessions.

Wanting to seek a therapist to overcome work anxiety, I stumbled on a Facebook ad for Better Help and decided to try it out! I was immediately paired with Courtney and found her services very helpful.

I have been working with Courtney to overcome stress and anxiety issues relating to work challenges. Courtney is an amazing listener, genuinely cares about my growth, and gives me the advice I need to combat negative thoughts. While my friends and family think I have petty issues, Courtney understands my perspective and helps me navigate the obstacles. Courtney and I communicate via chat and video call - which I genuinely appreciate! She also sends me helpful worksheets that help me reroute my negative thoughts into positive ones.

Better Help is perfect for modern professionals who are accustomed to the flexibility and convenience of chatting online and scheduling video calls. It is a relief to finally receive help from a licensed professional who has the techniques and skills to help me overcome this battle. I have already recommended BetterHelp to all of my friends who are suffering from anxiety and stress.
