I love talking to Courtney. It feels like I’m talking with a friend. I wish the sessions were longer or I could do multiple sessions in a week.
Genuinely the best therapist I’ve ever had!!! So thankful to have gotten to work with her.
I felt so comfortable talking to Courtney. This is completely different than what I thought it would be. But she was so real with me and so honest that I felt really safe.
Courtney was a perfect fit for me and was always solution oriented. With positivity and grace she guided me, sometimes assertively to the right goal that I set to myself. Thank you Courtney MSEDwE for life :D
Courtney is awesome! She keeps it real, but does it with a softness. Even though I didn't listen to a lot of her advice, it was perfect advice. She helped inspire me to get back to living authentically. Now, I don't want to quit therapy because I will have to wait 2 years to be her friend. I might need therapy again to deal with the loss. Hahaha. She's great! 100% recommend her.
Well, what can I say. I came to better help a mess. Feeling very low, angry, frustrated and all sorts of emotions. I also needed someone I could click with and feel comfortable with. Which was definitely Courtney Macon-Arnold, She has been such a support and listen to everything I needed to say. Speaking to Courtney has made things so much better, she is so easy to speak to, no judgments, gave fantastic advice and different things to try with insomnia, hurt and shame. I would recommend her to anyone one who just needs someone there.
My counselling sessions with Courtney over the past 4 weeks were very helpful and much needed. She is friendly, honest, funny, a great listener and always allowed me to express my feelings without judgement. She validated my emotions and gave me words of encouragement. She also gave me plenty of worksheets to complete to help me manage my thoughts and deal with my experiences. Thank you Courtney!
She is amazing. I tried to get out of a abusive relationship for a long time and I managed to do that in less than a month thanks to her. We also worked on my anxiety and I feel much better. I really felt she was listening to me and it was so easy to talk to her, she made me see my worth. I totally recommend her. You will see the results in no time!
She listened and helped me to think of the issues going on in my life in a whole new perspective! She was insightful, and gave me no-nonsense ways to go about solving the things that were on my mind. Definitely would recommend her to anyone!
Courtney is amazing! She provided me with tools that I can use to help manage my anxiety. Since working with her I have been able to significantly reduce my anxiety and I also feel confident than I can better deal with stressful situations as they arise. I am overall much happier now and feel that my life is on a more positive track. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
I have spent the last 6 months working with Courtney; she is one of the most caring and wise individuals I have had the pleasure of "meeting." Not only did she help me gain control of crippling anxiety, but she helped me through the death of a past abuser (and all the emotions that came with that), taught me invaluable tools to navigate my complex health journey, and helped me become closer with my husband and young son.
I will forever be grateful to Courtney for her wise counsel, understanding ways, and to-the-point advice.
If you are nervous about beginning therapy...you can relax knowing that Courtney is in your corner 100% and will do everything she can to help you succeed.
I am comforted knowing that, should I find myself in need of therapy in the future, I can always return and Courtney will be there to support me in her non-judgemental, friendly way!
Thank you for ALL you do! - E.
in the time that I was with Courtney, i felt understood and motivated to get better. she has a formula that works like magic to pull yourself out of a dark place, she was a great support, confident and I’ll recommend her forever!
She is awesome, superb
She’s wonderful, respectful, professional, and really knows what she’s doing. You’ll be I’m good hands with her!
Courtney really helped me with my anxiety this year. It's been an ongoing issue for a while but several things brought it to a head so I decided to try Betterhelp and I'm really glad I did. Courtney is so easy to talk to, she listens, and gives great advice. I thoroughly recommend her as a counsellor.
Courtney helped me reach a critical life breakthrough regarding self-respect and validation. 10/10 would highly recommend!
Courtney has great energy and an amazing sense of humour. She made me feel really at ease, and it's only due to unrelated circumstances and would love to continue working with her at a later.
Courtney has worked wonders with me in a short amount of time. I’m very happy and eager to continue counseling
Courtney was very helpful. She is a great listener and challenged me to to be more proactive and think a little more clearly. She was a great resource and support when I really needed it. I highly recommend her.
Courtney is awesome. Very nice and understanding.
Courtney is an amazing counselor. She helped me a lot feel less lonely during these times. She helped me with finding ways to stop ruminating. I definitely grew a bit these past few weeks with her help.
I love her so much, she has me excited to be awake in the mornings. My moods have been so much better❤️
My therapist is amazing. I feel so validated and always left feeling like I move forward and toward more healing and
knowledge for self care and breakthrough to helping myself to be my best me--my goal. She is on point and I learn so much for a small moment in time. Sometimes I sign on like "I don't really have something to just say to start this off" and I just start with the first what I think is not the most valid emotion or thought that's been going on but it's that moment and it becomes so fluid with her responses that i realize that it was something quite valid and needed to be touched and spoke on .
I've been with Courtney for around 2 weeks now and I already feel incredibly supported and understood! The way she does her practice is very humane and relatable, which makes you feel connected right away, as you would be talking to a best friend that you had known for years. She's super honest and I absolutely love that. If I'm not making an effort to take the baby steps she advised me to, she points that out in a really funny and sweet way. She's very present, responsive and she will definitely make sure you're going in the right direction for a better self!
Courtney provided a great deal of positive input to my plight.
She is a pleasure to talk with, knowledgeable and is able to work with you in a very inclusive manner.
Her positive and upbeat personality is hugely uplifting and will set you on the right track from the outset.
I've worked with Courtney for 3 months. From our first session, she gave me strategies and a formula to immediately start working with to pull myself out of my depression. She is warm hearted, kind, supportive, and encouraging. I found her really easy to talk to about anything, she listened and always had a way to solve the issue.
Outside of our weekly video appointment, she took the time during the week to check in, and it was a lovely reminder to myself to keep focusing on the formula and that she cares about her clients. I absolutely recommend Courtney, if you're looking for an effective and friendly therapist.
She is amazing and takes her time to listen to your needs. She is solution based and will always try to find ways to help you.
Courtney is wonderful!
Thank you for all you do!
Courtney is nothing but amazing. Being a Black woman and finding out my trauma was hard and embarrassing. Not many women of color take on trauma because our community is taught to stir away and cover it up. Courtney has been helping me understand why I am the way I am and there’s actually nothing wrong with the way I am.. She has been such a positive asset towards my healing and growth
She is an amazing therapist . She is amazing ay her job and confident in her plan . She is a breath of fresh air in providing help that works . 5 Stars
Courtney is wonderful. She listens with no judgment and offers ways to work through issues. I am so grateful to have her.
She is a really good listener and therapist. I highly recommend Courtney! She is very reliable!
She is professional
she helped me a lot ..
in the same time she is so lovely and friendly Watch make you feel like talking with a friend. I for sure will choose her always.
I have only been working with Courtney for a couple of weeks during an especially traumatic period in my life and she is outstanding, supportive, compassionate but also drives me to think about things and helps gives me the tools to change behavioural patterns. I am so grateful to have been matched with such a wonderful practitioner, I really don’t know what I’d do without her!
Courtney is fantastic. Being a black woman, it is imperative my counsellor is also a black woman and she fully understood my issues. Courtney has helped me see the wood for the trees and feel visible and understood in a time when I felt neither. Thank you Courtney.
