Welcome, I’m Courtney Lamothe, Founder/Owner of Self-Awareness, Let’s Talk (SALT), mindset coach and licensed clinical social worker. My focus is on mindfulness and a 7-year long practice I’ve coined, “Feelings Identification + Needs (FIN) Awareness” based on the teachings of Nonviolent Communication. As a fin helps to propel a fish through the water, I believe these practices help to propel us forward in life with more clarity, compassion, and connection. It’s practical for all and provides a new lens from which to understand all situations.
Being aware of what we are feeling and needing is the foundation of self-awareness. When we can pinpoint the root reasons for our feelings, actions and reactions, we can better understand human behavior (our own and that of others). My focus aims to help bring clarity, which can bring compassion, and with compassion can come greater connection (again, with ourselves and others). And, I believe, connection is why we are all here.
Together we will talk about your current stressors, feelings, strategies, and identify resulting unmet/met needs. From here we can intentionally connect dots, identify trends and strengths, acknowledge compounded unmet needs, and learn ways soften, ground, and welcome any feelings. This then positions you to create new strategies and goals in order to better meet your needs moving forward. Creating intentional change often requires repetition, practice, and accountability, and I am here to help with these as well.
It is my hope that in working together, you will will create a more fulfilling, well-lived life in whatever way that looks to you. As someone who has previously worked in hospice for 13 years, I highly understand the value of this work.
Please connect with me if you have a desire to live from a more curious, self-aware, regulated, kind, and connected place. May you find some comfort here.

I came to betterhelp to improve my relationships and make closer connections with the people around me. Courtney has provided me with the tools that have allowed me to reach my goal along with a better understanding of what my needs are. Her work has made a positive impact in my life and has provided a new perspective on how I approach interpersonal problems. Highly recommended!
Courtney is a wonderful and compassionate listener and sounding board. She has provided such helpful advice and encouragement during each therapy session. Her patience and grounding positivity is exactly what I needed! I always leave my sessions with her feeling a sense of relief. I also really appreciate that she is always sharing new tools and exercises to try that can be easily incorporated into daily routines as needed.
Courtney is amazing- and i have recommended her to many people!
Courtney is incredible. She is a wonderful listener and always knew a helpful solution to any problem I brought to her. She has a sense of humor too so you don't have to worry about her being TOO serious. I consider myself lucky that BetterHelp paired me with her.
