Courtney is a psychotherapist at AIM House. She received a BA in Religious Studies from Northern Arizona University in 2004, an MA in Buddhist Studies with Tibetan Language from Naropa University in 2007, and an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Regis University in 2016. Courtney began working with AIM House in April 2019, drawn by the emphasis on building community founded on integrity and purpose in action, as well as the opportunity to offer support and mentorship to teens and young adults experiencing transition, adjustment, and integration.
Courtney’s main clinical focus is in providing counseling to teens, adults, and families suffering from trauma, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, attachment, adoption, spirituality, and low self-esteem. She operates from a combination of perspectives founded in Jungian, Gestalt, and Person-Centered theories. Courtney believes that healing occurs holistically, through working with the triad of mind, body, and spirit. Courtney has emphasized Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy and Eco-Therapy/Nature Therapy in her work, given the non-judgmental, experiential, and relational aspect of the experience.
In her spare time, Courtney enjoys spending time with her partner, riding her two rescue horses, practicing archery, singing, hiking, kayaking, making art, and snuggling with her two dogs and cat.
