Marika Courtney, LPCC
Hi! I’m Marika. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. I have experience working with addictions, co-occurring disorders, anxiety, depression, and trauma. I deeply understand trauma and its effects, both from my work as a therapist and through lived experience. I enjoy helping people with questions like, “How did I get here?” “This is not what I envisioned.” How come everyone else is happier than me and have it all figured out?” Our life has no timeline; comparison is the thief of all joy.
My approach to counseling is to therapeutically challenge you with any resistance, reservations, and intrusive thoughts that are keeping you stuck in a place you do not want to be. I believe you have the power to make new choices in your life; I will help and support you to trust yourself to make those moves. I open our space for you to tell your story and keep it safe. I will support you as the master of your own life – a life that will lead you on a new path toward new adventures. The therapeutic approaches I utilize include CBT, Trauma-Focused, Person-Centered, and Motivational Interview, and others.
