Ever hear the cliche breakup line, "It's not you, it's me"? Well, sometimes that's true. I'm here to help you become a person who's ready to have intimate, deep, and open relationships. With partners. With friends. With family members. And most importantly...with yourself.
A BIT ABOUT THERAPY
Specializing in Communication & Connection
Hi, I'm Courtney. I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in relationships and communication. I'm about helping you discover your true self so you are more confident and self-assured so you're able to thrive in relationships with everyone around you.
In session, we'll learn how past behaviors and relationships influence your current situation. We'll increase your insight into your own personality and how it aligns (or doesn't) with your partners. We'll dive deep into your own expectations of others, and how it influences your choices. We'll increase your communication skills, specifically focusing on being more open and assertive. We'll make sure your relationships are equal by decreasing your people-pleasing tendencies and increasing boundaries.
Individual Therapy challenges people to become their best selves by increasing insightfulness and objectivity into personal behaviors. We will explore obstacles that have lead to feeling stuck or depressed, and challenge negative cognitions that cause anxiety, as well as re-prioritize values to find balance.
Couples Therapy is for those looking to increase connection, understanding, and empathy within their relationships. We will discuss concerns, relationship histories and traumas and develop communication skills. We'll identify negative cycles that have been keeping your relationship from its full potential.
Navigating life after a recent conflict or breakup or for anyone trying to decide whether or not to leave a relationship.
For those questioning their sexuality or exploring consensual non-monogamy/poly relationships
For those who are feeling the pressure to have it all, now. When you can't sit down and "smell the roses" because you're focused on "making it" in your career, finding a partner that you're crazy about, and maybe trying to have kids before "it's too late."
For anyone who has recently moved to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and are having difficulty navigating this "Minnesota Nice" culture.
