When life becomes overwhelming and leaves us feeling stuck, taking the step to begin therapy can feel scary and confusing. I would be honored to help you on your journey towards healing and living a more present and connected life. I firmly believe that we all have within us the natural ability to heal from trauma. My goal is to create a safe, nonjudgmental space where you can find your voice and feel empowered to move through life’s ups and downs with flexibility and confidence.
Courtney works with adults across the lifespan and brings her own experience as a biracial woman to work collaboratively with each client while always maintaining a culturally sensitive and LGBTQ-affirming lens.
Somatic Experiencing is a transformative experience, where the body learns to release the stored trauma and enables the nervous system to self-regulate. Courtney’s experience as a trauma therapist using Somatic Experiencing has allowed clients to be more present, assertive and figure out how to move through life’s challenges with flexibility and confidence.
Lastly, her training in Attachment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy comes into play to provide tools to improve communication, to set healthy boundaries, to problem-solve, and to affirm your worth.
