MS, LCSW (111638)
Originally in the entertainment industry, Courtney made the transition to Social Work and psychotherapy to combine her passions at the intersection of culture, art, expression and service. Courtney received her Bachelor of Arts in International Studies at the University of Kentucky and her Master of Social Work at the University of Southern California. Courtney received much of her foundational training at UCLA Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital and has spent the last five years working with teens, adults, and families in individual and group settings amidst struggles including vision impairment, disordered eating, mood and personality disorders, psychosis, addiction, trauma, grief and loss, gender and sexuality exploration, and life transitions.
Courtney is passionate about journeying with adolescents and families to discover helpful insights to live with a bit more ease, to stay more present, and to increase awareness about our humanness. It is her belief that therapy is a practice relationship and the most successful clinical work will occur if she starts where a teen is at and uses their individual uniqueness and strengths to inform the therapeutic work. Courtney uses trauma-informed, somatic, and evidence-based interventions including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and mindfulness. Courtney’s hope is that each client leaves PTT experiencing more freedom and empowerment in living life as their most essential self.
