A BIT ABOUT THERAPY
Specializing in Relationships, Communication & Connection
Hi, I'm Courtney. I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in relationship issues, self-esteem 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, traumas, 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 with family, friends, and partners are equal by decreasing your people-pleasing tendencies and increasing boundaries.
I love working with under-served populations, including those identifying as LGBTQ or questioning their sexuality, individuals who are in ENM or poly relationships, and neurodivergent folks.
I also adore working with fellow therapists and mental health workers who are looking to deepen their understanding of themselves and widen their support network.

Feeling isolated and alone, despite being in a relationship
You feel unmotivated to meet new people, which leads to having few real relationships
You feel you often drive people away unintentionally

"Courtney has been an amazing asset to my ongoing mental health! She has helped me navigate two immediate family deaths, work stress and anxiety topped with the inability to take a vacation leaving work behind, the bumps of middle age work and life balance as well as life in general and the turbulent state of the world. I would strongly encourage anyone to get a mental oil change with her and continue to do so."
-J.R. (current client)
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.
Revitalize takes pride in catering to each individual and couples specific needs. During the first Intake Sessions, a personalized treatment plan with individualized goals will be created as a cohesive team between client(s) and therapist. These can be updated and changed at any time throughout treatment.

Benefits Of Telehealth Appointments
Flexibility! It's much easier to fit in therapy when you don't have to travel to an office for sessions.
Reduced Anxiety. There's no traffic or rushing to get to your appointment after work. There's no difficulty finding parking or waiting for your session in a waiting area beforehand.
Increased comfort. You can attend sessions at times that work the best for you, and in your own space. You are able to wear comfy clothes that you wouldn't necessarily wear in public. Awesome!
Pets are welcome! If you have pets, they are welcome to join your session and provide comfort as usual.
Consistency. Because virtual sessions are more convenient and able to fit into your workday, you are able to attend therapy more frequently and consistently, which leads to better progress and goal outcomes.
Germ free appointments. You are less likely to come into contact with anyone who has been exposed to Covid 19, as well as the flu and all of the other stuff that's constantly going around.
