Professional statement

Courtney is an integrative psychotherapist who earned her master’s degree in social work from Columbia University. She works with individuals, families, and couples; helping individuals develop strong interpersonal and communication skills.

Courtney has a particular clinical interest in life transitions, feelings of overwhelm and anxiety, and all kinds of relationships (platonic, familial, romantic, professional, etc.) In her practice, Courtney strives to create a welcoming space where those she works with can explore their thoughts and feelings from a place of compassionate curiosity. Courtney is cognizant of the effect our environments have on our lives, and strives to create an inclusive space for all.

Message to clients

Whether you're navigating the complexities of romance, the nuances of friendship, or the intricacies of family dynamics, I believe that every interaction is an opportunity for growth and connection.

My practice is rooted in the belief that communication is the bridge to understanding—not just with others, but with ourselves. In the throes of stress and the whirlwind of overwhelming emotions, it can be challenging to find that inner voice that guides us toward clarity. Together, we will work to uncover that voice, understand its message, and harness its wisdom to create the life and relationships you desire.

As we embark on this journey, know that you are not alone. I bring a wealth of experience in helping individuals and couples find balance, develop resilience, and cultivate joy in their lives. By fostering a warm, empathetic, and non-judgmental environment, I encourage you to explore your thoughts and feelings openly.

You deserve a life filled with meaningful connections and a sense of peace amidst the chaos of the world. If you're ready to take that step towards positive change, reach out for a free consultation today, and let's begin this transformative journey together.
