I had a wonderful experience. Very informative. I’m very pleased and happy with my all the assistance and direction to guide me through a difficult time!

Written by N.I. on Jun 11, 2021 after counseling with Courtney for 10 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, anger management, and coaching

Courtney helped me get through the most difficult challenge of my life yet and come out of it a better and stronger person. She listened and kept me focus at all times to make sure I don't spiral into the emotional side of the separation. She made sure that I was prioritizing myself at a time where I was beating myself down. She was my confident, my super power, when I almost lost confidence in myself. I love Courtney as she really was there for me and knew when I no longer needed her to start standing on my own two feet. Thank you Courtney!

I was in a pretty dark place when I met Courtney. She helped me get through it and not just that but guided me through to understanding how I got there. Provided me with the tools to move forward in life even if things get dark again. She listened to me, laughed with me, and comforted me. All I can say is thank you. and to everyone considering, she helped me she can help you.

Courtney was the perfect person to help me get back on track (not a very easy task). Her easy-going energy and sense of humor made the healing process a lot easier. I highly recommend her. She's been an angel for me. : )

Written by D.O. on May 29, 2021 after counseling with Courtney for 9 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Courtney is a fantastic therapist - very friendly and extremely personal - feels like talking to a friend who happens to be a therapist. You can be yourself while talking to her. I loved her laid-back approach and cheerful nature - exactly what I needed during my extremely dark and difficult times. She is very understanding and non-judgemental, both spiritual and down-to earth. I feel much better after the theraphy, feel more confident, less dark in my head and feel more confident with dealing with difficult life-death situations (grief) and people, - it gave me more perspective in seeing how other people who made me feel bad about myself were actually the ones who were misbehaving. I feel more equipped to recognize and defend when other people trying to take advantage of me. She is also very respectful and will not pressure you into talking any psychiatric medicine for your psychological / or just normal life - emotional problems, when it is often perfectly enough to just work through it in more human way. Highly recommended! Dora

So far I have only had 2 sessions with Courtney but I already adore her. I have tried to get therapy before but stopped because I didn’t connect to the counselor and it felt like she didn’t know me. With Courtney, she really listens to me and makes me feel heard and validated. It is easy to talk to her because she is so personable but still remains professional. After my sessions with her I feel good after speaking and am able to reflect on my experiences in a constructive way. I would definitely recommend her and better help to others because I’m finally starting to be able to work through my issues with someone I trust.

Written by R.E. on May 03, 2021 after counseling with Courtney for 1 month on issues concerning trauma and abuse

In my 8 weeks of therapy, Courtney helped me navigate through my trauma and gave me tools to retrain my brain. She was encouraging, non-judgmental, and supportive the whole way. The previous reviews that say she is like a friend are accurate. If I feel that I need to talk to someone in the future, she'll be the first one I contact. Her responses are timely and she is always on time for appointments. 10/10 would recommend. Thank you, Courtney!!!

My counselling sessions with Courtney over the past 4 weeks were very helpful and much needed.

Courtney is amazing! She provided me with tools that I can use to help manage my anxiety.

Written by E.R. on Jan 04, 2021 after counseling with Courtney for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

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.

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.

Written by T.O. on Nov 03, 2020 after counseling with Courtney for 1 month on issues concerning depression, trauma and abuse, grief, eating disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

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!

Written by A.L. on Sep 16, 2020 after counseling with Courtney for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, and self esteem

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.

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
