Courtney is an Associate Clinical Mental Health Counselor specializing in treating pornography, sexual addiction, and the co-occurring disorders of anxiety and depression associated with addictive behavior. The shame, guilt, and secrecy of childhood wounds can drive individuals to seek relief from a painful past by engaging in illusive present behaviors that at some point stop becoming as need satisfying as they once were.
Individuals do not set out to make their lives unmanageable but find themselves developmentally stuck when maladaptive behaviors become habitually unconscious.
Courtney has the ability to assist clients wake up to who they are and realize their true potential, while walking them through the process of grieving the loss of unhealthy parts the self no longer needs to survive. His previous experience as a case worker for The Department of Child and Family Services and a case manager/therapist for Switchpoint Community Resource Center (homeless shelter), has prepared Courtney to work within a variety of client belief systems and circumstances.
Courtney received his BS degree in Human Development from the University of Utah, his (SUDC) Substance Use Disorder Counselor certificate from The University of The Pacific and his MS degree as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor from The University of Phoenix (St. George campus). Courtney is a certified Prime For Life instructor for DUI offenders and has trained with the IITAP Institute, obtaining the current status of (CSAT-C) Certified Sex Addiction Therapist Candidate.
