Courtney Burns

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I love what I do! I believe that therapy is collaboration. Each of us is an expert in our own experience. My role as a therapist is to assist you in understanding your experiences and to find ways of making meaning out of them.

My Approach

My approach is to use the here and now to facilitate insight into the patterns of living that each of us finds ourselves in. Techniques utilized include; mindfulness, decisional balance analysis, writing exercises and motivational interviewing. I work to contribute coping skills to help sort through difficult feelings. When working with children, teens and families, I like to get creative! This can mean art or play therapy techniques. Parenting is hard work! I like to partner with parents to help you practice your values and bring about more calm at home. I have also expanded my practice to include telehealth, meaning I am able to conduct virtual sessions online.

My Background

I have experience working with a wide array of clients. I do have specialized training in domestic violence, trauma in children and adults, as well as substance abuse. I provide therapy to families, children, adolescents and adults. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Portland State University and a Master’s in Social Work from Loyola University Chicago.
