Nesha Courtney, LMHC

I am an open-minded individual with a belief that everyone deals with things differently and that is what makes us, us. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, and Certified Disability Management Specialist with more than 25 years of experience working with chronic pain, depression, anxiety, and school/workplace issues.

I utilize Choice Theory, education, a mix of mindfulness, and other evidence-based practices to help people manage their areas of personal concern. I work closely with clients to help them identify and fulfill their needs. I am trained in EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is a top-tier trauma intervention. We will work as a team to identify coping strategies that work for you. I will be thrilled to be there with you through this process of learning to become more adaptive, healthier, and happier.

I am experienced in working with individuals ranging in age from 16 years old to Seniors. I have worked with clients struggling with chronic pain, employment/occupational issues, medical conditions, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, relationship difficulties, abuse and trauma (sexual, verbal, physical, and emotional), PTSD, teen issues, and school/work stress.
