Courtney Kent, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I developed my practice to provide my clients with concrete skills and tools that they can use as they navigate their life. Through the use of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), clients can begin to learn the skills to help effectively manage stressors, improve their emotion regulation, better tolerate distress while strengthening their ability to stay present in the moment.

I believe that the most caring and compassionate thing I can do as a therapist is help my clients achieve their own goals. Sometimes this requires continued pushing towards change and other times it means sitting in acceptance. I find that clients get the most out of this process if they are willing and open to the process, even though it may be challenging and painful at times. It is common with some of the diagnoses I treat that a client may engage in self-harm of have thoughts of suicide. However, I treat individuals who are not currently self-harming, have sufficient time since their last self-harming episode and are able to commit to safety from acting on their suicidal ideation.

I specialize in providing Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) therapy to adults. Depending on a client's needs, I can integrate skills training into the session or can provide an additional skills-training specific session each week.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): A form of talk therapy that trains clients to recognize
patterns of unproductive thinking and learn healthier responses to challenging situations.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): A subset of CBT that emphasizes a skills-based approach to personal development and tools for controlling one’s emotional responses to stimulus.
