Meet Courtney

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#12298) with a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology from Adler University in Vancouver, BC. I completed a BA in Psychology at Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS and was born and raised in Ottawa, ON.

While I was pursuing my Masters I completed practicums at the Vancouver School Board working with children and at Dragonstone Counselling working with adults.

I have extensive experience working with Parkinson’s Disease and concussion/head injuries as well as anxiety, depression and grief and loss.  

My personal connection to Parkinson’s disease brought me to the Parkinson Society British Columbia where I launched the counselling program and provide counselling services to those affected by Parkinson's when I’m not working at my private practice.

With my varied experience in working with all age groups I bring a unique perspective and skill set to working with each of my clients. I am experienced in creating an open and safe environment for my clients to provide them with the necessary tools to get through the challenges that they are facing and to go from simply surviving to thriving in their lives.
