She has worked in community mental health and provided school-based therapy services. She is passionate about being able to provide clients with social and emotional support, and helping them develop positive self-esteem, grounding and mindfulness strategies, and overall well-being.

Cortnay utilizes a variety of therapeutic interventions. She customizes treatment based on her client’s needs, as well as their own personal goals. Her primary modalities are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Interventions, and Mindfulness Techniques. She has been trained on the FAN model, which emphasizes attunement and meeting the client’s where they are. She enjoys helping people develop more self-awareness, become attuned to their needs, and experience personal growth.

Cortnay has worked with diverse clients, including adolescents, adults, and families. She believes that it is important to be congruent as a therapist, and does this by demonstrating genuineness, being non-judgmental, and having empathy for her clients. Cortnay likes her clients to feel welcomed, heard, and comfortable. This helps the client feel safe enough to begin the journey of healing.
