Trauma-Informed Approaches, Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, Codependency, Adjustment Disorders, and Other Mild to Moderate Mental Health Struggles
Born and raised in Michigan, Courtney has always been aware of the need for greater access to mental healthcare in our local communities. After graduating with her Bachelor’s in Psychology, she took a few years to focus on raising her family before returning to graduate school to get her Master’s in Social Work (MSW). Her professional and personal goal is to provide personalized, quality mental health care to members of her community by supporting individuals in discovering their unique pathways to better ways of living with clarity while building individual resilience.
Courtney developed her philosophy to therapy, which is grounded in an evidence-based interpersonal practice, while attending the University of Tennessee’s College of Social Work. Her specific interests include trauma-informed approaches, depression, anxiety, ADHD, codependency, adjustment disorders, and other mild to moderate mental health struggles. She is also certified in Veterinary Social Work, which she uses to focus on the role of the human-animal bond and the benefits of animal-assisted interventions in mental health. Courtney has always had a love for animals (including her chickens and guinea pigs), and plans to adopt a family dog that will be trained to join her in her therapy practice and volunteer in the community as a therapy animal.
If you find yourself struggling with unexpected circumstances, processing a past event, or confronting new changes in your life, Courtney brings an empathetic approach to meet clients where they are. She fosters a comfortable and open space that is collaborative in nature, and understands that the client is the subject matter expert on themselves.
Courtney currently practices in the Okemos office and via telehealth. She is accepting new patients.
