Professional statement

Courtney Cole is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor at Bolger Psychotherapy and Assessments in Providence, RI who works with children, teens, adults, couples, families, and parents. She specializes in depression, anxiety, OCD, phobias, adjustment disorders, emotional self-regulation, and trauma, including PTSD, abuse and neglect, and surviving violence or car accidents.

Courtney’s approach is both client-directed and collaborative, meaning that she encourages her clients to identify goals that they have for themselves, and she is there to assist them in exploring themselves further, with these goals in mind, in order to gain further insight about their experiences as well as foster self-discovery and growth. She frequently utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), including trauma-focused CBT, to help clients make behavioral changes and change their thought patterns. She also implements narrative therapy, Family Systems, Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), and Exposure Response Prevention Therapy (ERP), when appropriate.

Courtney’s empathic and warm personality makes clients feel at ease the moment they meet her. She has completed numerous trainings at PESI on trauma and continues to educate herself on the latest treatments to ensure she is providing her clients with the best care possible. She looks forward to meeting you.
