Cortney is an Assistant Clinical Director (ACD) at Change, Inc., meaning it’s her job to ensure a smooth Transition & Triage process for clients who are being referred to help outside our environment (for example, in-patient substance abuse treatment) and to help clients return to our environment when they’re done, as well as to serve as a point of evaluation and decision for client movement within our environment.  Cortney also heads up our new in-house Peer-to-Peer training program, as well as provides clinical licensure supervision, meaning she helps our clinicians grow and develop through clinical training, mentorship, and direct supervision.

Cortney has spent time in a variety of mental health contexts and settings, including her work in agency-based, in-home, residential, and outpatient modalities, including her work with women struggling with substance abuseShe is passionate about building strong, trusting, and judgment-free relationships, and understands the delicate balance that must be struck with clients who need to be both supported and challenged at the same time.  She has particular experience and interest in work with individual clients wrestling with depression, anxiety, trauma and PTSD, and identity (including LGBTQ+), as well as with couples on important issues affecting marriage or relationships.


From Cortney:
“In a world riddled with sadness and struggle, I strive to provide a safe haven for my clients to find support and hope, recognizing that all too often they just can’t be found anywhere else.   My hope is to be source of grounding as you face your struggle, and ultimately, yourself.  Counseling can be a transformative and life-changing experience if we are brave enough to engage it with earnestness and sincerity.  I’ll be with you along the way.”

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
