Courtney’s message: I work best with children who have BIG, confusing feelings and don’t tend to respond well to CBT workbooks or traditional parenting approaches like counting, sticker charts, or time-out. As a neurodivergent human myself, I remember how frustrating the labeling of my feelings were to me and how I despised the expectation that I follow adults’ advice because they ‘are older.’ Rather than being the “expert” (read: robot) who rambles off unilateral solutions and approaches, I prefer a collaborative approach to therapy and parent consultation sessions. I don’t “fix” children or “modify” behavior; I build upon strengths and interests to help my clients (and their caregivers) figure out ways that work for them to help them be able to thrive in a society that wasn’t built for those of us outside of the ‘norm,’ My approaches build upon the work of looking for what’s underneath challenging behavior and focusing on helping the entire family regulate and collaborate. With clients, I utilize child-centered play, animal-assisted interventions, walk & talk sessions, ACT, and mindfulness-based CBT. In parent consultation sessions, I build upon the work of those with lived experience along with neurodiversity-affirming researchers. If you think I would be a helpful fit for your family, and you’re willing to do the work alongside your child, please reach out to me today!
