Courtney has over 20 years of experience in social work. For Courtney, the best part of being a counselor is being with her clients and watching them grow into a stronger family that will impact future generations.

My Story

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” – Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird

Empathy has been part of who I am for as long as I can remember. As a child, I remember watching Winnie the Pooh and feeling sad for Eeyore. I was the child who played with classmates who didn’t have friends. I knew from an early age that my calling was to help others. I agree with Maya Angelou, who said, “people will never forget how you made them feel.” I’ve been in your shoes. I have had my own parenting challenges and have felt judgment by others. I decided to help other families have a different experience. I want parents and caregivers to leave sessions with me feeling hope and strength, not embarrassment or shame.


Speaking of shoes, one of my sons is a sneaker head, slang for a sneaker collector. The latest addition to his collection is designed for suicide awareness and has the words “Why So Sad?” on them. I was drawn to the swooshes on the sides that start out blue but fade over time to reveal yellow underneath, just like many of us have things going on beneath the surface that we can be hesitant to reveal. It reminded me of how as a therapist, I help chip away at struggles and challenges with my clients. It made me think of the saying “brighter days ahead” and how hopeful that sounds.


My goal is to make lifelong, generational changes in families, and because of that it’s important to me to work with the whole family. If you work separately with children and their caregivers, I liken it to a bicycle without a chain – each wheel is doing its own thing but not “connecting.” The techniques and strategies I use branch into all areas of life and all developmental stages of children. My client families and I work together as a team to help them feel complete, and one of my greatest joys is seeing parents or children look at me with an “aha” look when something clicks for them.


I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work from Southeast Missouri State University, and a Master's Degree in Social Work from Saint Louis University. I am a Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) Practitioner and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Georgia. My husband Jeff and I have two sons in college. I love spending time with my family, taking long walks, and enjoying nature.
