About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I received my Master’s degree from Roosevelt University, and have been working with children and adults of all ages for over 15 yrs. My clinical interests and expertise include trauma, sexual assault/abuse, child abuse, domestic violence, dual diagnosis, and substance abuse. I have worked at numerous agencies, hospitals, and schools throughout Illinois as a therapist, advocate, trainer, and case manager. I work to help my clients realize their potential for positive change and move forward with their lives. I believe that each client needs their own set of individual goals that will empower them. I am outgoing, professional, and understand that a good therapeutic relationship starts with empathy and trust.
I have more day time appointments than night appointments- however if you cant find a time then let me know and we can figure it out:)
I look forward to working with you!!

Courtney lives in reality with most of us. She shows me the path back to the weird-normal that I’m trying to get back to.

Courtney has been great. I can tell she caters her sessions to her individual clients based upon how they’ll best respond. I’ve felt comfortable with and confident in Courtney since our first session. She’s easy to talk to, not judgmental, and she’s great at being able to interpret what I’m trying to get across when I have a hard time explaining. She knows her boundaries, and she’s very respectful. If I hadn’t matched with Courtney I would definitely not have continued seeking therapy. She’s been immensely helpful to me.

I’ve only been with Courtney for a couple sessions but from the first meeting you can tell right away she takes the time to listen to what’s bothering you, doesn’t make you feel judged, and just wants to help make you feel better.
