About me

You are courageous for seeking counseling, and I'm excited to join you on this part of your journey. Change is difficult, even when it is for the better. As we work together and the change process begins you will recognize you are better equipped to successfully manage your emotions, thoughts and behaviors.

I enjoy working with people in their natural environments because I have found when you are comfortable and safe, you will make the most progress. I work with people with a variety of needs: survivors of trauma and abuse, depression, anxiety, parenting needs and coping with life changes (relationship stress, career changes, relocation, parenting) are just a few.

My communication style is direct, caring and supportive. In all cases, the focus of therapy is you.

I use integrative therapy techniques combined from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Client-Centered Therapy, education and Psychoanalysis, depending on your needs and therapy goals. This combination of approaches ensures that I provide you with the tools you need to make the changes in your life you are working on. My approach to therapy is client-centered, because you are the master of your experience. I believe each individual has their own individual needs.
You are courageous for reaching out and I will always make sure to do my best to meet your needs.

Courtney is supportive and honest. Talking to her is like talking to a friend - if that friend also had all the trauma healing and psychological knowledge necessary to assist you in overcoming emotional obstacles. She's great at reminding me of my goals without putting pressure on me. And she has a knack for bringing out the positive things in me and in my life. I'm extremely grateful that I found her :)
