Contact Information

150 Mary Walker Building

Courtney graduated with her BS in Women and Gender Studies and Interdisciplinary Arts for Children from SUNY Brockport in 2015. During her undergraduate studies, she was an RA for 2 years, which inspired her to pursue college counseling. She received her MS in Mental Health Counseling from SUNY Oswego in 2020. She has experience working with clients dealing with trauma, substance use disorders, anxiety, depression, and intersectional identity work.

Courtney’s view on therapy integrates various counseling perspectives, including dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), feminist theory, family systems, existentialism and constructivism. She comes into counseling with the idea that we are all the experts in our own lives, and that it is important to acknowledge you and your experiences in order to feel empowered to make meaningful change. She often incorporates mindfulness practices and expressive arts into her practice, and is a social justice advocate.

In her free time, Courtney enjoys going on hikes with her friends, family, and dog Nova. She also likes to craft, tend to her houseplants, explore new coffee shops, and watch movies.
