About Me

Therapist - Courtney Elson

My greatest passion is helping adolescents and adults improve their relationships and develop healthier strategies to cope with stress and anxiety.  I am committed to guiding my patients as they transform their lives.

As a Clinical Psychologist with over ten years of experience in the private practice setting, I recognize that there is no one-size-fits-all for therapy. I view therapy as a collaborative process where I tailor my treatment to reflect the unique experiences and perspectives that each patient brings to the therapeutic relationship.  I strive to create a nonjudgmental, warm, and productive space for my patients while providing both insight-oriented and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

I want to help you connect to the present so that you can make personally meaningful changes. At the moment this may sound like an unattainable goal. Yet, after decades of studying and practicing psychology, I've seen patients far exceed their expectations. All it takes is the right therapist.

It is a privilege to be invited into your life and to help guide you in the process of healing and creating lasting change. I look forward to welcoming you into my practice. Whatever your goals may be, know that my aim is to help you reach your potential and find your path to remarkable – however you define it.
