Cortnie Pickett, MA, LPC, CTS, EMDR, Counselor in Colorado Springs
Choosing a therapist for you or your child is an important decision! I specialize in work with children, teens, and young adults. Are you a concerned parent or an individual who is ready to start the healing process? I am honored to help! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 10 years of experience working with individuals who have been traumatized and are experiencing emotional or behavioral disturbance as a result. My ideal client is aged 8-30 and is someone who is ready to experience change. Let's encounter transformation together! Call Me Today!
As a Certified Trauma Specialist, I specialize in work with survivors of trauma or abuse. I have significant experience with problem sexual behaviors in children, child abuse, sexual abuse, post-traumatic stress, complex grief, adoption, attachment, divorce, and other events that are negatively impacting your choices, emotions, relationships, and behaviors.
EMDR, cognitive-behavioral, experiential, sand play, play therapy, and trauma-informed therapy are some of the options that I use with clients who are interested in healing. There is always hope and I am passionate about walking with others as they ascend their steps towards healing! You are worth it!
