I have been a child & adolescent therapist for 46 yrs., & I enjoy my work greatly. I also work with parents who want advice and guidance about parenting skills. Children can change much faster than adults, and that is why I love working with young people. I try to support their strengths, encourage their creativity, relate to them with warmth and humor. I also work with parents with children, and with parents with teens if teens want me to. I like the challenge of connecting with both children and teens, ages 4 to 20. Connecting requires intuition and open-heartedness.

We live in extremely stressful times. You might be experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD for the first time. Individuals might may need support to address their symptoms in order to maintain a healthy baseline of functioning. I believe that people are resilient and have the answers within but often need assistance in uncovering them. The process of being mindful of emotions and behaviors, while learning to be present, can lead to a sense of regulation and acceptance.

I believe that moments of transition provide powerful opportunities to examine and understand why and who we are, what we can do to accept ourselves while making the changes we want to see. Whether that transition is around perinatal experiences, employment, relationship challenges, or any other way our identity changes over time, it is my privilege to help people come through feeling healthier and stronger than they did before. I firmly believe that everyone that I work with has the power to be who and what they want to be. My job is simply to help them find their way.

People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons, yet a common thread unites this motivation: the desire to understand one's inner experience in an authentic way. Therapy presents an opportunity to be curious, to foster new depths of understanding, and to develop a greater sense of meaning in your life. The therapeutic relationship provides a space to explore an intuitive understanding of yourself. The core of my therapeutic work is to help people articulate deeply held longings, and to decide if and how to manifest them in the world.

***I am currently accepting clients for intensive and adjunctive EMDR. I will not be accepting weekly clients until March 2021 at the earliest.*** I know looking for a therapist can feel daunting when you're depressed or anxious or when you feel like your relationship or job (or whole life) is falling apart. But it's a great step because a therapist can help you! With a therapist, you can work through your issues and go from feeling "stuck" to feeling like you're living up to your potential. I love helping people get there.

I believe good psychotherapy can simultaneously alleviate distress while also cultivating joy, creativity, and fulfillment for oneself and others. I offer a trauma-informed perspective that views psychological “symptoms” as useful adaptations to stressful circumstances. These adaptations deserve respect and understanding, even as we seek change. I am passionate about the integration of relational psychology, body-based practices, mindfulness, and cultural perspectives. I see both the therapeutic relationship and connection to the body as ways to reactivate the inner resources needed to thrive.

I know that there are challenges in each person's life and I strongly believe that talking helps. I engage those that I work with by using dynamic psychotherapy. This is an ongoing process of talking, thinking and feeling. As these elements are shared, reconsidered, and reviewed over time a deeper understanding of the self emerges. This understanding leads to more choices in one's life. I respect the abilities that people bring to the challenges of life and their capacities to make changes. I treat the person not the diagnosis. Please text or call (617) 480-5155.

As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, with emphasis on the psychodynamic perspective, Courtney is invested in fostering and empowering the utmost potential of an individual by means of unearthing deep-seated impressions, that inadvertently unravel into outward expression. Everyday circumstances challenge our established foundations on both a personal and universal level, where safety and comfort are sought in a world encompassed in judgement, repercussion, misinterpretation, burden, shame, or guilt. Courtney recognizes that there is no sole route toward exploring one’s own truth and cultivation of healing.
