Meet Courtney The Counselor

Approachable. Relatable. Non-judgy.

With a Sprinkle of Ms. Frizzle

I am not your mother's therapist.

In other words, I'm not your typical therapist. My soul age is 5. I speak angsty teen fluently. I wear dresses with dinosaurs on them. I play with putty and enjoy making messes. When other adults ask me my hobbies, I have to quickly think of other, more boring, things to say than collecting toys and fidgets. 

 

I'm also not your mother's therapist because well, I am one of very few therapists that ONLY sees kids and teens in Tri-Cities. Therapy for children and teens shouldn't feel stale and clinical, yuck! If you're looking for a therapist your teen or child enjoys coming to, I am here to help. Also parents, don't worry, the girl in the dinosaur dress also has a lot of education, degrees, and training too. I'm not all glitter, slime, and putty!
