Hello and welcome to Zen Counseling & Consulting Services. I’m Courtney. Have you been to other supposed “LGBT friendly” therapists and felt like they could not relate? Are you stuck in a perpetual cycle of depression and anxiety? Or maybe you are using drugs and/or alcohol to cope with life’s many stressors? Whatever the reason, I’m here to help. You may be asking, “is therapy right for me?” Absolutely! Therapy is a great self-care tool.
Together we can challenge negative thinking patterns in order to help you respond in a more effective manner and increase your life satisfaction. I also strive to provide an affirming therapeutic approach, which means I respect and regard all sexualities and genders positively and provide an affirming space for all my clients.
Whether you’re dealing with depression, anxiety, addiction, stress management, multicultural issues, sexual/gender identity issues, I’m here to help. Seeking therapy for the first time can feel scary and overwhelming, but I can assure you that you’ve made a step in the right direction. Together let’s work on a plan to help you get the healing you deserve.
