About

When seeking help, finding the right therapist can be a daunting task. My desire is to create a safe, affirming space which allows you to see yourself as I see you. I believe that you already have the abilities, resiliencies, and gifts that you need to create the life you want – meaningful, courageous, and fulfilling. My role as your therapist is simply to help you to recognize and dislodge the obstacles which are preventing you from reaching your goals. I am honored by the trust given when entering into each client’s world and meet that trust with respect and validation for your experience and perspectives.
My approach is person-centered. I place an emphasis on being genuine, empathetic, and meeting you exactly where you are. I use a combination of evidence-based approaches including DBT, CBT, and motivational interviewing. Our sessions will include psychoeducation, skill building, and talk therapy,

Courtney M Bass's Groups

Dialectical Behavior Skills (DBT) Training

DBT was created by Martha Linehan to treat people suffering with Borderline Personality Disorder, which had previously been deemed untreatable, but I find that DBT skills (including Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotional Regulation, and Distress Tolerance) are useful to everyone. Including me! This group is meant to provide supplemental support to clients already in individual therapy. The group will meet for 90 minutes weekly for 16 weeks with 4-8 clients in a group. Clients will receive psychoeducation on the skills, discuss how they utilize them in daily life, and empathize and troubleshoot challenges with one another.

More about this group

Trauma Processing (Rape, DV, or Childhood Abuse)

The purpose of this group is to reduce your symptoms of PTSD and reduce feelings of shame by share your story in a safe space with other survivors. This group is meant for clients who have had at least 3 months of individual therapy and are actively attending. The group will meet for 90 minutes weekly for 8-12 weeks with 4- 6 clients in a group. There is a rigorous screening process for this group to ensure clients are ready for this step and that the environment is safe and supportive.
