Hey, thanks so much for checking out my profile! I'm happy you're here. Many of my clients come to me because life has become unmanageable. Stuff like substances, food, exercise, shopping, relationships used to help, but now, those things are becoming a problem too.
ONLY Therapists-in-Training & Associates Available : With over 30 years in mental health and addiction services, I bring a strong mix of approaches to help you find your way forward. Integrating CBT, mindfulness, coaching, insight and body-based therapies, together we will build ways that work for you. Our therapeutic work can help you climb out of whatever difficult emotional spot you're in and build the life you're dreaming of. I believe “fit” is essential and offer a free phone consultation to help determine who is the right fit for you. We work with individuals (14 yr+), couples and poly relationships, and families.
Life and the experiences we have can be both amazing and challenging; relationships can change, and dynamics may shift over time. Whether you are going through a tough time and experiencing anxiety, depression, or just feeling like you are unable to connect with life in a meaningful way, I can collaborate with you to identify your strengths, helping to expand your capacity for struggles and implementing strategies to restore balance.
Many people come to therapy wondering “what is wrong with me”? It is my view that the real question is "what has happened in your life that has impacted your beliefs about yourself and your ability to cope with stressful life events"? You may notice that you seem to automatically react to situations in a way that you don't necessarily choose and question if you will ever be able to change. If you have experienced highly stressful and/or traumatic events then you will benefit from a therapeutic approach that mindfully explores your personal experiences and strengthens your resiliency to respond rather than react.
It is my passion to support individuals and couples through therapy by creating an accepting and warm environment that promotes healing, connection, and greater self-knowledge. Through my work in psychotherapy, I have come to believe that even within the most difficult experiences and circumstances, each individual has a truly profound capacity for resilience.
Feeling stuck, swamped and scared? Trying to hold it together for the ones you love, even when inside you are losing it? Therapy can be a safe harbour in a stormy time--it's ok to fall apart here. Let me help you cope with intense emotions and make a plan to manage what *can* control. We will build your resources so you can take care of those that are depending on you. Secure and private video sessions are available on a flexible schedule to meet your needs.
Whether you have been in therapy at different points in your life or are considering therapy for the first time, welcome. We will work collaboratively for you to gain a better sense of your overall well-being. Working together, I will help you learn more effective ways of coping as you may find yourself experiencing challenges in life including managing relationships, regulating difficult emotions, dealing with family conflict/issues, struggling with self worth, and adapting to change.
Hello and thank you for stopping by! My name is Courtney. I am an energetic and motivated professional who is passionate about improving mental health and well-being. I have worked in a number of settings, including community mental health agencies, hospitals, and independent consulting, and have served a range of client populations. These experiences have taught me so much, namely that serving others gives my life meaning! As a clinician, I come with my lived experiences of mental health challenges, including anxiety, and low mood. I believe these experiences help to instill a sense of universality with clients.
My private practice is suited for non-crisis struggles such as low self esteem, mild anxiety or depression, or insecure attachment. However, these are just examples! If you feel you or your child could benefit from a positive, safe, and creative space facilitated by a supportive, non-judgmental, and encouraging art therapist, then please apply to become a potential in-person or virtual client. Please go to my website in order to learn more, and to apply!
Starting the therapy process can be difficult. But if you are here, you are likely looking for some help in creating positive changes in your world.

Supporting clients in reaching goals that are identified and monitored by them is also an important part of my practice. I look forward to understanding client's stories and hearing the areas in their life they are more looking forward to changing.

**PLEASE NOTE: I AM NOT CURRENTLY TAKING NEW CLIENTS** Have you ever looked in the mirror and felt that you weren't enough? Weren't enough of what exactly? Weren't thin enough? Weren't smart enough? Weren't strong enough? I learned how to walk through those fears and just show up. And you can too! Ever since I was a child anxiety was something that was present in my life, it would come in waves and life events would trigger my anxiety to increase or decrease. I had so many masks for my anxiety that others could see it as anger, the need for control, sadness or low self-esteem.
You've learned to cope by controlling your feelings and while it's always worked for you in the past, lately it feels like the floodgate is going to break. You're often criticizing yourself and worrying about everything that could go wrong. You feel exhausted and overwhelmed and aren't sure how much longer you can keep the flood of emotions at bay. Before it all comes crashing down on you, you wisely know that it's time to make a change ... and you've come to the right place.

Productive psychotherapy occurs within the context of a positive therapeutic relationship between the therapist and client, so often times the first one or two sessions are focused on a consultation to review the client’s concerns and for us to see if we are a good fit to work together. During this time, I will make recommendations for a treatment plan and will ask for the client’s feedback.
