Hi there! I hope you find some peace of mind in the next few moments. Finding a therapist/counselor can be exhausting. I fit best with clients who are dealing with depression, anxiety, and major life changes. If you need help adapting to new life changes in a confidential and supportive atmosphere please reach out. If you need help overcoming maladaptive, entrenched ways of coping with depression and anxiety please call or email. If you need to find hope in a seemingly hopeless situation let's work together to find some.
I focus on helping adolescents, college students, adults, couples, and families discover ways to cope with the problems they face. I believe we all have answers to our problems within us, but may need help in seeing a way through difficult times. I bring a range of approaches to our work together and tailor the treatment to your needs. I strive to provide a safe space for you to explore and be yourself. I have particular experience with treating anxiety, transition stressors, relationships, and depression, while promoting self-discovery. My goal is to help you lead a fulfilling life.
I know we are in a time of uncertainty and we don't know what the future holds, but I am here for you. I would like you to imagine a state of mindful, empowered, living because it can be done. Whether you are currently experiencing anxiety and stress or have been struggling with depression, there is help. Having over twenty years of experience in the mental health field and over eight in private practice, I've come to understand the obstacles and challenges a person may face in therapy. Each journey is unique and I am privileged to be a guide for you to discover and find what you are looking for in life.
In life we frequently encounter obstacles between where we are and what we want to achieve. These obstacles can manifest in the form of depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem issues, or unresolved trauma. Gaining a better understanding of who we are is an important step in creating a sense of personal fulfillment in all aspects of our lives. I work with individuals to gain insight into the influence of not only past events, but also current patterns of beliefs, with a goal of reconciling past hurts, healing past trauma, and breaking the cycle of unhelpful thoughts, beliefs, and reactions.
Registered Clinical Social Worker Intern, MSW, MPA, RCSWI, CCTS-I
My goal is to provide compassionate therapy services, working in collaboration with you to help you meet your goals and guide you through the healing process. I work with individuals experiencing a wide range of challenges, including dating, relationships, trauma, violence and assault, PTSD, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, self-harm, and sexuality or gender identity diversity. My background includes victim advocacy and outreach, clinical crisis counseling, animal assisted therapy, and human sexuality education. Taking the first step to reach out for help is not only brave but will be incredibly rewarding.
I strongly believe that our physical, mental, and relational health are all interdependent on one another. Whenever one of these areas develop challenges, the other aspects are affected as well. I am here to provide a collaborative, therapeutic environment to improve the overall well-being for you and your loved ones.
Are you ready to put yourself first? Constantly taking care of everyone else's needs can take a toll. Finding the right time to say "no" to others never seems to come; meanwhile, life is passing you by and your needs are not getting met. Now is the time for you to listen to that inner voice to get the support that you have needed for quite some time. Together we will address what you have been avoiding. We will engage empowering practices that work to enhance your self-esteem and address issues that are holding you back from living the life you have wanted for so long.
Sometimes, life challenges can make us feel isolated, overwhelmed, and like no one could possibly understand. If you're experiencing these feelings and finding it harder to cope, I'd love to partner with you in exploring and improving your situation. I'd like to show you that someone can, in fact, understand. My training – in both Counseling (MS & EdS) and Marriage & Family Therapy (PhD) – makes me uniquely qualified to address a myriad of individual and relational issues using evidence-based methods that increase insight and help bring about your desired changes.

Trauma, broken relationships, life changes, hard times, depression, grief and loss, parenting and marriage struggles can bring us to the point of losing hope. Walking through a difficult season of life may feel overwhelming and I am here to help you take that first step on your unique journey and help you enhance your life and recovery with the convenience of Online Video Counseling.

***Now accepting new clients in Florida, New Jersey and Mississippi*** Accepting Medicaid (united) and BCBS in Mississippi, Oscar, United and Oxford in Florida, BCBS in New Jersey*** I view counseling as a joint effort between the client and myself.

As Forrest Gump's mother once said, "You've gotta put the past behind you before you can move on." While this idea sounds somewhat simple, putting the past behind us; especially a traumatic one, can be easier said than done. In my work with individuals, I embrace a philosophy that helps people explore their past experiences in order to better understand their present day ones. Additionally, because I believe God to be the source of all things; healing and hope included, I will utilize a faith-based approach in session if desired by prospective clients.
I’m here for you. While life can be hard, counseling can help ease it. This is your life and I will be here as a facilitator, supporting you in any way you need. All this in mind, my ideal client would be someone willing and ready for change. Using a collaborative counseling approach, I make a therapy plan that fits you and your needs. Together, we will work on strategies that best works for you and provide you the tools necessary for betterment. Feel free to reach out to me so we can discuss how we can get started on your therapeutic journey!
Hello, my name is Dr. Cortnie S. Baity, LMFT and I am the owner of Onward and Upward Psychotherapy & Consulting Services, LLC., now serving all Florida and Georgia residents. I understand that throughout our life’s journey we all will face difficult moments and/or seasons. In order to grow through these times we must embrace the human species’ primal need for survival: meaningful social engagement.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Massachusetts, Louisiana, Florida, and Vermont with a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Northwestern University. I completed my internship and postdoctoral fellowships at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School, and I have experience working with clients with a wide range of concerns such as mood and anxiety disorders, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, and sleep problems. I work with adults of all ages adjusting to different life transitions from navigating mental health as a college student to improving executive functioning in school settings and daily life.
Thanks for reaching out to my link! I think it takes a lot of courage to admit one has a problem and needs help. There still seems to be a huge stigma associated with getting counseling. That's why I think the online platform is a perfect opportunity to have a private conversation, and discover what might be troubling you. I have helped many individuals over the years who are experiencing BOTH mental health and substance abuse issues. Please let me help you!
At ‘Anew Life' we understand that life is challenging and full of unexpected events for any and everyone. These events can leave deep emotional scars, painful memories, and setbacks if not appropriately addressed. The emotions can cause a person to act, live, and think in ways they usually wouldn’t. Anew Life wants to help that individual, couple, or family set a fresh course for their life. To achieve this goal, we continuously make it our priority to provide a therapeutic environment that is centered around growth, clarity, and a new beginning. After all, we all have needed a fresh start in our lives at one time or another!
I work with people who may be having a difficult time adjusting, questioning identity, or finding purpose/direction in life, and those struggling with interpersonal relationships, self-harm, trauma, depression, or anxiety. I also enjoy working with marginalized populations, ethnic/racial minorities, people who identify as gender and/or sexual minorities (2S, transgender, gender diverse, intersex, LGB+) and their loved ones. I believe everyone deserves to live a fulfilling life. Whether you are experiencing clinical symptoms, or need an objective listener, therapy may be helpful to you.
My approach to therapy is supportive, interpersonally individualized, and collaborative. Everything might look OK on the outside. But inside, it feels like you may be falling apart. My work is grounded in the belief that I am not an expert on clients' lives - they are, and we can work together. I work with many people who feel overwhelmed by stress, have lost a sense of meaning in their lives, or feel out of control. I value transparency, compassionate honesty, and appreciation for imperfections. I believe that the fit between client and clinician is vital in creating a working space that is safe and therapeutic.
We all face challenges. I believe people seek out therapy when the ways they have used to navigate those challenges no longer work. Sometimes unrealistic and/or unhealthy thoughts and beliefs can get us stuck. I help unwind those thoughts, connect to your inner strength, and find your way back to living life on your own terms. I know that it is not easy to be burdened with depression, anxiety, and trauma. Your performance at work, your relationships, your sleep and even your health can all be affected. You deserve a life that you love. I am dedicated to helping you discover your inner strength in a safe space.
