Hello! My name is Courtney (she/her) and I am currently working towards a Master’s in Couple and Family Therapy from Antioch University.
Coming to therapy is an incredibly brave thing to do, and I am honored to join you on your journey. Whatever your goals are, I believe a holistic approach to therapy can help. I draw from Zen Buddhism’s concepts of mindfulness and acceptance, as I join you in attending to the emotional, physical, social, behavioral, spiritual and cognitive aspects of your life. I believe that every person possesses inherent skills and strengths within themselves, and I work with you to uncover your unique path and assist you in achieving your goals and creating the life you want.
My interests are working with couples and individuals who are looking to improve relational dynamics, people experiencing grief, anxiety, depression, trauma, or difficult life transitions, and those struggling with disordered eating.
I have a client-centered approach that adapts to meet your individual needs, with an empathetic and validating style. My hope is for you to feel empowered to be your best self, and to have fulfilling relationships with yourself and others. In order to assist you in this, I pull from a few different approaches, such as Gottman for couples, Solution Focused, Narrative, and Collaborative therapy.
With compassion, empathy, and acceptance, I look forward to facilitating a safe space for you to be seen and heard!
