Meet Courtney

My Passion.

I love being a therapist. I especially love working with people of color, LGBTQQAAI, kink and poly folk. As therapists, we come into this field to help but some professionals struggle with meeting the needs of folks from marginalized groups. As a black therapist with several marginalized identities, I provide my therapeutic expertise from a position of lived experience and understanding.¬†Working with client is invigorating for me! Getting down into the trenches with you as you battle against what life is throwing at you is how I conceptualize our work together. You are not the problem, the problem is the problem! Together we’ll develop a plan to free you from the difficulties in your life. I can’t guarantee things will bet better in a day; maybe not even lots of days. I can, however, promise to work through this with you and to help you figure out how to cope along the way.

My Credentials.

I have been lucky to have had an amazing academic journey brining me to this place to serve you today. I lived in New Orleans for 5 years while I attended Xavier University of Louisiana obtaining a B.S. in psychology for undergrad. I spent 3 years in Las Vegas working on my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. I’m currently matriculating in the only accredited PhD program in Human Sexuality in the country at Widener University in Pennsylvania.

I am an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist and have a Masters in Education in Human Sexuality from Widener University. I also completed additional training in Relational Psychotherapy at the Women’s Therapy Center in Berkeley, Ca.

My Philosophy.

All of the knowledge and experience I’ve gained from all of these different places form the basis of my work with you. My therapeutic philosophy is that I bring my expertise and you bring your expertise. What are you an expert in? You’re an expert in YOU! With two experts in the room, we will bring about the change you are seeking to your situation and your life.

 

Therapy can be scary, vulnerable, hard, exciting, challenging, rewarding and life changing. I’m here for all of that and what ever else our work brings us.
